Ahhhhhhhh ... Relief

Ahhhhh ... the last art show of the year is over.  And it was wonderful!

A shot of my space - all ready to go!
We were worried about Saturday.  The weather forecasters were predicting a big storm.  And we got 7 inches, but the roads stayed drive-able for a long time and people came!  Wahoo!

We had live music.

Lots of people came out on Saturday - despite the storm.

A panorama shot of the space.  It used to be a car showroom.

The artists and makers of the Holiday Art Market.
It was a really lovely group of artists who made fabulous things.  One of our goals with this group has been associating the name of the WeHa Artists Emporium which high quality art.  There is definitely a place for more kitschy-crafty things like crocheted Barbie clothes - Lord know I loved that stuff as a kid - but we want people to know that they will be seeing a wide variety of finely made art and crafts at one of our shows, and we certainly pulled it off this time.  It was GREAT shopping!

Stefanie Marco is the wonderful artist who started it all.  I basically just back her up.  Putting on a show like this is a lot of work, but when it all works out, when it has been a successful show - not just for us but for all of the artists - then we have done what we set out to do.

And now it is time to rest.  Well, not complete rest.  I have to put everything away properly, send out the last box of Xmas gifts, do the holiday cards, and yadda, yadda, yadda.  But the art shows are over and I can focus on other things.

Here's our house after the fresh snow Sunday morning.  Just imagine me inside, sitting by the fire, sipping cocoa in my flannel pj pants, and writing out Christmas cards.

Thank you so much for stopping in after my break.   I needed it!

Happy Holidays everyone!
