What a beautiful morning for the Endeavour to launch from the Cape and how lucky we are to be able to walk out and view the launch from our dock . Clear, cool sunny and very little wind – Godspeed Endeavor!!
The last craft show was on May 7th and it was a very nice show. We had lots of visitors for May, which is usually not well attended. But the weather was beautiful and sales were good too, a nice end to the 2010-2011 season.
Here is a photo of my latest gourd. I completed this Yellow Hibiscus gourd on the Friday before the show and it was purchased at the show the very next day.
Yellow Hibiscus Gourd -pyrography and acrylics
I have found the pyrography or wood burning so relaxing. I just purchased a new tip for my pyrography pen and it really burns beautifully. I plan on creating more of this type of gourd art for the January 2012 show.
Already started on my Christmas ornaments also – a few new designs coming this year too.
Have a wonderful day – please feel free to leave a comment below if you are so inclined Ü
Just completed this mosaic gourd for the monthly craft show in the park. . . . next to the last show and I am ready for a break. Having been the treasurer for the club this year has really been an experience. Not that I am unfamiliar with “finances” but it has actually been a little more work and taken more time than I thought it would have taken. Anyway, the next to the last show is this weekend and I am ready for a break and a summer of building my inventory too. I just had so much going on this year my inventory was difficult to replenish. I also hope to get my Etsy shop back up and running for fall and winter, especially the holiday season. I do have so many ideas for new gourd designs and Christmas ornament designs too. So I am ready for uninterrupted creative time this summer.
A photo of my two babies! Max, is the yellow lab and Penny, a mixed breed that was abandoned so we adopted her, and they both keep me company all day long. They are at my side as I write this post . .. so nice to be loved!!
