Yesterday, in a very blustery wind, I worked on my booth for the CDCG show. Last year my bff Susan Wells loaned me her booth furniture and it was beautiful, easy to set up and very much appreciated. However, I have to set up alone this year and I wanted something very easy, very light and easy to transport in a Subaru wagon. I bought two folding hollow doors at the Habitat store for $10, got some black paint and made this display table. Easy to transport, light weight and will store easily. Perfect!
The table covering is a drop cloth from the paint dept. at Home Depot, and this all sits on a folding table that I made risers for with PVC pipe.
What could be simpler? Once I get it set up in the booth, displayed and lit properly, it's going to look pretty cool. I'm using some boxes and crates that I have around the house for props to add to the rustic look of my barns and to give customers some idea of how they might display these in their home. I like the overall look of this a lot, but I like the easy set up the best!
This one (my child) loves Halloween soooo much and for the second year she wasn't home with us. Last year she had to crew and this year she had classes. We had sort of a pre Halloween celebration together the weekend before, but I was worried that she would have a crappy Halloween. No one at school seemed to have a plan that didn't include alcohol and she doesn't like parties where there are a bunch of drunk people, so she was going to spend the night alone. Luckily a friend of hers had an assignment to shoot a film that night, and invited her to come along. Guess where they ended up? At a pottery studio in Winston Salem filming a documentary.
Only a potter would be in the studio on Halloween night, haha!
I love that my kid was at a pottery studio on Halloween night filming a documentary, so perfect!! and then I got an email from her saying how interesting she found documentary work. Uh oh... that college loan will never get paid off if she becomes a documentary film maker, but she could change lives!
Thoughts and prayers for all of you today. I'm so thankful to be warm and dry.....
