Yep, it is that time of year – whether we all want to admit it…it is time for the holidays, and for some of us, that means craft shows and bazaars. I have been busy with painting a variety of projects for my first holiday bazaar of the season, that was actually a few weeks ago, and I am now getting ready for my second bazaar at the beginning of December. It is a crazy time, but for me, it wouldn’t be the holidays without these bazaars. Yes, it means some late nights, but I enjoy painting so much that I don’t really mind it. My husband and two boys are great for helping me set up and pack up for each show, as well as for giving their opinions on each project I finish. My youngest seems to think that we should keep everything I paint, but I remind him that if he wants presents under the tree for Christmas, I need to sell some items, and then he seems to change his mind. I do however paint a few pieces amongst all of the bazaar projects to keep for our family to enjoy year after year, and to hand down to my boys when they are grown and on their own.
So whether you paint to sell or give as gifts, I hope you enjoy each and every moment, and remember, to paint a few pieces for yourself too! Happy Bazaaring!
