What Did You Do Today?

Hi Friends,
Well, with Halloween over, it's time to start painting for my Holiday Treasures Sale! But, first, I painted Rubber Ducks! My young client is an avid Rubber Duck collector. She also LOVES Harry Potter! So...what did I do? I painted a Harry Potter Duck on her bathroom wall. That may not sound like FUN to you...but I find painting VERY therapeutic...and FUN!
Only negative part...I need to redo my nails... :)

Tomorrow I'm going to a fabulous craft show with my friend, Mary. At least I hope it is fabulous, and not all knock off work. Sadly, true craft shows are becoming a thing of the past. It is harder and harder for true artists to compete with the cheap prices of the knock-offs. There are two or three items that I purchase that are not handmade. Mary Engelbreit items...of course...Lori Mitchell items (resin but they sure are cute) and Willie Ray Studio work...also resin but very cute. My late friend, Joan DeMent, had a collection of 19 ORIGINAL Willie Ray wood carvings! Now, Joan was a true collector!!

So, after all of that painting, it's off to dinner and the movies for me...and my husband.

XO, Lucy
