So, talked to my Dad today and he said, hey you did good yesterday.
I thought, really?
I mean, I had fun.
How can you not have fun when the winning exhibit is made out of coffee filters?
(YES, those are coffee filters on the bottom of that dress and they are amazing!)
He said, well, I would guesstimate only 50 people walked through this show and you made money. That proves that you could go to a show with 500 and do quite well. Not to mention, nobody else WAS selling stuff.
Oh, I thought. He's not even doing "parent math" and trying to be encouraging. He has a point!
So, anyhow, I think I will attend more events and bring altered stuff. I have to. See, I don't have enough room to just keeping making without getting rid of my altered items in some way shape or form!
And I'm certainly not stopping!
Yes, I know. You want to see another shot of the winning entry...the back of the dress was covered in playing cards and this side view is the first hint you get....
And a tea bag dress? First Place in Fashion!
I know, you don't BELIEVE me. Hold on.
Here is a close-up.
And, for all your girlies in Australia, you will be happy to know the Chooks were represented well with this chicken-wire and toilet paper cover dress. Sorry no full body shot. The photo was horrible. Looked like a zombie...raided a chicken coop...got tangled up....not in real life just my camera in a gym....did not reward me with a good photo.
AND yes, I tried to win this lotto tree. I have big plans involving planes, a huge scrapbooking party in Vegas, and biscuits.
One of my favorite altered item was this lamp made out of real live gummy bears. If you get bored while reading you can snack...
OR, this awesome container...
This was honestly one of my favorites...this bee with the straws...
In a close tie with this Red Neck Secretary..
How do you like this shoe? That is how my feet feels in heals...
Of course MY favorite booth was mine...
Yeah, I know. That is a lot of stuff! The window frame, my Happiness frame, and lots of Lexi's earrings walked out the door with a new family. Let me know if there is anything I should send you way...I will give you a great deal! ;-)
And next year? I totally will make sure I hit the chair massage. That is my Mom. She knows how to completely enjoy art shows to the best of her ability.
Have a relaxing Monday, if such a thing is possible.
Back tomorrow with the new Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge!! Whohoooo!
