Countdown!...

Well, the Spring Fling is just around the corner, and I'm not quite ready just yet ~ story of my life!... JP and I spent several days rearranging our basement and creating a larger space for me to spread out my product inventory, shipping boxes and packing materials. It looks like a warehouse down there, but I am grateful to have the space! We've been unwrapping my latest spring reproduction designs, inspecting each one, and I have been signing each collectible, one by one. Little by little, I'm able to pack them away in preparation for this weekend's show. There's so much to consider like what props to bring, fabrics to dress the tables with and other adornments to make it just right. I wish I had weeks to think about it, but I just really began thinking about it all today!... Yikes! Well, with any luck, things will look festive on Saturday. Stay tuned for more photos from this weekend's show!

PS.. Hope you all enjoyed my latest Collector's Catch piece!... Congrats to Deb for snagging this unique bird pictured below. Luckily, I created a few more standing birds, each unique and up for adoption this weekend. Come early for the best pickings!

Hi, Johanna!! Wow!! What a great workspace, and look at all those goodies!!! Whooooo!! Whooooo!!! I hope to see you and JP this weekend!! Have missed the last several shows, due to too many grandchildren being born, as well as too many trips down to Austin, all at the wrong times!!! HA!! Hope your next few hours are not toooo stressful, as you prepare for the great show event!! Hugs, Trudy

Oh how I would love to have everything on those shelves! Good luck with your show - I know how those last couple of days before the event can be unnerving! Hang in there!

Looks like you are ready to open a shop. What a relief to be able to spread out and get organized. I look forward to seeing the photos from your show. Even though you're a seasoned professional, I wish you the best of luck!
