Marist Holiday Traditions

Hey guys!!  Well I'm sorta back in cyberland.  My laptop still has no Internet....and the school email keeps sending my photos back undeliverable.  Something is just not lining up for me with the technology these days.  Oh...and my i-Pad and i-Phone won't send any emails from jennihorne@ymail.com.  They are hanging out in the outbox for a spell. 

Anyhoo, this is not a post to complain about my technology challenges.  Somehow these photos snuck in before the school decided to start blocking my photos.  They are so inappropriate right?  Haha...
Marist was a huge success once again.  I can always count on this show to be well attended, brimming with happy shoppers ready to buy.  I've participated in this show 5 years now and in those years have learned what to take and what not to take.  We loaded the van Thursday night and Billy was like, "Is this it?"  Yep sweetie it is.  Except for the 2 token paintings everything in the van was under $50. 

Mailey went up with me afterschool on Friday to set up.  I tell you what she was the absolute best helper when it came to setting up and taking down.  Never complained, was eager to help and such a joy to have around.  Especially at closing time.  I was pooped, but she just kept bee-bopping and loading up Saturday afternoon.  A real trooper.  Now during the show, we had to work a bit on how to greet everyone, and make sales (not sit on the stool and play games on the phone).  But that will come with maturity and perhaps having a bit of her own work next year to sell.
 Hot seller?  The i-Phone cases by far, sold 20.  And sold all but 2 pairs of earrings in the bauble jewelry.
 I love this corner spot.  I hope it can be mine forever.  One of my artsy peeps says she's been doing this show like 25 years.  If I do the same I'll be 65 setting up.  Right here.  In this corner spot.  :)
Oh, and the clay bird necklaces were also a hit.  Sold like 14 of those.  The rest of the stock all went to Design House (formerly the Vintage-Flea) in downtown Newnan.  This Sunday is Holiday Open House.  I can't wait to go.  Some friends and I are attending together.  It's been way too long since I did anything like this with friends.    It's well deserved time away.
I'll hopefully be back later in the week with a sneak peek at what's going on in the studio as well as the house!  I got a bee in my bonnet to re-do some areas.  I love to nest in my home that's for sure!  Take care!

PS...I just had to add this photo of Mailey from Saturday night.  She was obviously pooped at this point!!
