I've been a bit slack lately about writing blog posts, but there's been lots going on here. I mentioned in an earlier post that my niece, Erin, was coming to work with me for a month. She came and was such a great help. She learned all about flea marketing, photographing items and listing them online. She has a real love for vintage and it turns out she has good instincts for it. She is presently going to college, but I think she is going to be pursuing this in her spare time to help supplement her income.
Her etsy shop is HERE if you want to take a look.
At the end of June, we had my son's wedding. They did a lot of planning and preparation to make it a very special event. It was outdoors, which is risky this time of year with the afternoon thunderstorms, but we got lucky and the weather cooperated. It was a very special day....the venue was charming and quaint and everything was just magical.
The first two photographs are by Sarah Christmus. We are still waiting on more wedding photographs from her....I can't wait to see them all.
Just a few short weeks later, it was time for Art Camp at our local artist's co-op. We do this every summer and always have a waiting list for sign-ups. It's a jam-packed week full of projects and busyness. I always try to prepare as much as possible, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
You will notice the girls holding up their assemblage birds that they made. Wow....those were some flashy birds with their feathers and bling!
Prepping the bird kits for them got me into a bird groove. I decided to make a flock of birds for my upcoming shows this fall. 3 dozen were completed in all.
I have some listed on my facebook account if you are interested in an early purchase.
OK, I think that is a good catch-up for now. Hope your summer is going well!
