The Etsy Holiday Show
Held at the Music Farm, in downtown Charleston this Saturday, November 13, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., this event is delightfully packed with local Etsy vendors selling their wares and having a lot of fun... well, at least my friend, Laura, and I had a ton of fun at last year's event. Check out Laura's blog here to see what the show is all about, and see what adventures the two of us had! Also, be sure to check out her beautiful creations while you're on her site!
This show is a wonderful way to support local artisans! And I have to say that the quality of the workmanship of the Etsy vendors is really quite impressive. You'll walk away feeling good that you supported local artists AND perhaps get some Christmas shopping done - or at least bring home some wonderful holiday ideas to try for yourself.
Here are a few items I've been working on to bring to the show...
Here is a set of four bird silhouettes. I tore out pages of an old book, painted each page a different color and smeared pastels over each one to give a little more depth. Then I placed the bird silhouettes on top!
I'm making some fun holiday ornaments to hang on your tree or anywhere in your home to brighten spirits! This is a 3-D cardboard heart that I painted and decorated with paper. Then I added varnish for protection and shine.
These are smaller versions of my kissing balls... perfect to hang in a corner, over a doorway, or on your tree!
and the other side...
Birds, birds, and more birds... this is a cardboard shaped bird.
I glued hand-torn paper and added a rhinestone eye -
then punched a hole and added a sweet ribbon.
I'll be selling boxed sets of stationary printed from my original artwork.
Of course I'll also be selling some artwork, my decoupaged bottles and hearts, wish flowers, beautiful hand-rolled flower magnets, and much more! If you stop by my booth and mention my blog, I'll give you a 20% discount on your purchase!
Next week, I'll let you know how it turns out and also tell you more about my Exhibit at Park Circle in North Charleston! Have a wonderful, crisp, and active week!
I appreciate your visit!
