One More to Go....

Many thanks to all who attended Denver's 10th Annual Gifts for Yule! With all the press we had this year, we had a record number of attendees. Once the doors opened, JP and I could barely catch our breath as the shoppers rushed in! Anyway, we appreciate your support and enjoyed seeing many of your smiling faces!

I thought I'd attach a few photos of my table displays featuring my line of reproductions. I usually start thinking table settings and styles a couple of weeks before a show, but with this year being so busy, I quickly sketched out my concepts the day before the show! Luckily, I think it turned out to my relief! Phewwww.....

And now I have just one more show to go. That's right, and it's our special Open House event, and the 5th year that I have hosted it. Yesterday I took down the Halloween decor, cleaned and prepped for our last big event. Today, I think I will sculpt......... Stay tuned.....

Looks great! ...but where can I buy this great stuff? I only saw a couple of these items on Primitives by Kathy....

Johanna Parker said...

Thanks everyone!....

I just checked, and yes all of these items are available on www.primitivesbykathy.com. On the home page, click on "Catalog" then on "Artists" (left-side column) then click on "Johanna Parker" to see my latest offerings. I noticed that my standing snowman has no thumbnail image, so just look for "mustard cloak snowman"

Now, if you live in the Denver area, you can pick up a few of these goodies (which I have signed) at my home show! Even better!...

Thanks for your interest!

Wonderful displays! The old striped tin with your candy cane ornaments and wrapped peppermints in Santa bowl, made a show stopping entrance to your booth. Proud of you! The vintage building in downtown Denver was the perfect setting for your look and style too. Wish we could have been there.

My heart sings when I see your display pictures, as it brings back so many wonderful memories of our mother/daughter shows together. I could go on and on, you bring me great joy.

Keep creating! Love you, Mom
(Hi Kitty, I miss you too!)

Ahhhh, thanks Mom!.... You know how much of an impact you made on me and my folk art path.... I wish you could have been there with us.... I know you would have been styling my booth :) You've inspired me greatly through the years....

Love,
