Thanks to EVERY one

Thanks to everyone that has ever posted to this sight.  I have learned so much from this site.  If I didn't ask the question, then someone else did and my answer was right in front of me.  I have come a long way from crafting to artist.  I got my confidence right here, reading about everything one needed to know to move on and move up.  Thank you to those who donated and those who donated prizes.  I was a recipient of a beautiful piece of art.  Thank you Joel!  I may not post a lot but I do…

It has been a long time since I was at a show that paid off as this one did.

It should be noted that for many years, there has been a "scab" show adjacent to this…

Setup and teardown are pretty mellow.  You do…

Posted by Chris van atta on June 3, 2018 at 9:30pm 3 Comments

I have been gathering all the supplies needed to complete my booth set up!  I have finally arrived !  Excited to set it up & take photos of it for submission. 

My question is.. You think it will be ok to set it up in the yard? Or my storage location where there is plenty of room?   Or is a must to have it set up at a actual show?   There are deadlines coming upper some Florida shows and I need to have this done soon.. 

What is the best practice?  Will it…
