Here is the long overdue post about the Art Hop! When people ask, "How was the Art Hop?" I say, "I had so much fun." It was fun. I loved hanging out with my dolls, the lovely ladies who shared the space and the space next to us, I found new art and new artists, and the people watching was in it's prime.
I sold two dolls to the parents of two lovely and adorable little girls. You know who you are...and thank you so much for your support. It means so much to me!
One mom almost bought a birthday banner, but her 4-year-old thought it was just too "weird" for him. Now I know what 4-year-olds really think of the banners...thanks, kid.
One of the all-time highlights of the show? Watching the kids walk up to the dolls and just stare at them with the sweetest of smiles. I wished I could give every child a doll to take home who did that.
Here is my friend's jewelry who I shared a space with. Her jewelry sold like hotcakes! Beautiful things!
It was so much fun to see all of you who stopped by for a visit. It made my day for you all to go out of your way to come say hi.
Oh, the people of the Alberta Art Hop...how I love you. You gave me hours of entertainment.
There was this guy...
...and this guy.
While I was packing up at the end of the show Rhett wanted to whisper something in my ear. He asked, "Am I too young to sell things at the Art Hop?" I said, "No, way!" So, he has started a collection of art. I believe this one goes for .33 cents.
My new favorite artist who I met at the Art Hop...Renee Hartig. She is young, sweet, and peppy. Her landscape art is amazing. I bought a small original painting on paper...I love it. I look forward to buying one of her larger masterpieces on canvas. If you go to any of the shows around town...look for her. Amazing work.
