Art, fun and community

wendy lee lynds 2010

This past weekend was the Everett Home & Gift Show where I had an artist booth with my collage friend, Wendy Lee Lynds.  It was the first time that the show promotoers decided to add in the artistic element, hoping to encourage holiday gift buying as well as spark home decor ideas.  With many new projects, it sometimes takes a little more time for the idea to catch fire...Though it was not as crazy busy as we would have liked, we certainly had a lot of fun - visiting with artist friends, playing with watercolors and found papers, munching on chips and inspiring customers.

To provide a recap, here's a couple of photos of our booth...

Wendy did a presentation on the main stage each day of the show, demonstrating how to collage without adhesives - it was very "off the cuff" and very inspiring!

We were surrounded by other great artists...some of my favorites...
Ursula Stocke's sunflowers

Kim Groff-Harrington's hand-cut circle collage

Jennifer Lommers' flowers

Andi Shannon's textiles

Shelley Holm's typewriter clock (and it works!)

Jody Cain's necklaces made from watch parts (this was my splurge at the show!)

I had a great time collaborating with Wendy as our collage duos partnership...there may be other plans in the works...I'll keep you posted!
