Today it is small pieces

Today I am going to measure all of the pieces so those of you who have asked about sizes of certain pieces will have an answer.

Several pieces have found happy homes lovely friend Annie bought the mouse measuring tape and my dear friend Joyce took home the slumber party piece. So they are gone from the sale.

Those of you who live out of town are welcome to buy pieces. I will ship them to you if they are a small size at no cost but if you buy a large piece you will need to pay for shipping.

Linda: Boy that was some sale I had..made good money, got stuff out of the house…you know you can walk down an aisle in the basement now.

Gary: Yes I am so realize of course, that you still need to take some more stuff out…I would like to  walk around the whole basement.

Linda: Just be happy that you can walk down one aisle. But you know what people asked me most…are you selling any original artwork?

Gary: Well you do have fans who love your work…would you consider selling some of your original art…I know you think of them as your children but maybe it is time for some of them to leave the nest just like Annie did.

Linda: Well you are probably right about that…it would be nice to know my children are out and about in new homes making people happy. Okay I will do it..but when?

Gary: You know the holidays are coming up.

Linda: Perfect! I will have a sale of my original artwork on a Sunday in December.

Finally cleaned up from the sale! sale really took time to clean up, sort out what I am going to sell on Etsy and eBay and what I was going to donate to charity! My house is still not back in order but it is almost there. The sale was spectacular..thanks to all who came and bought was well worth it and we made really great money off of just $1 to $5 items.

My friend Corinne Blank from Goodness Recycled suggested I donate any art supplies, fabric and ephemera I did not sell at my sale to this new shop in town called Upcycle Exchange. It is a wonderful shop run by a delightful woman, Autumn Wiggins. Autumn takes donations of art materials and supplies, beads, fabric, fabric scraps, yarn, embroidery floss, paper, canvas, frames, ephemera....anything that artists would need to make artwork from. If you donate to the shop you receive a card which entitles you to discounts on artwork made by artists who frequent the shop. You can also go and buy art materials by the ounce or the pound. For $20 you can fill a large square tub with whatever you want. The shop is delightful, well organized and fun to shop in. What artist does not want to buy cheaper art supplies? The shop is located off Grand on Meramec but Autumn told me she will soon be moving onto Grand between Connecticut and Humphrey. Here is her

And here is my donation and me in her shop. And yes I did get some things when I was there....some fabric and scrapbooking paper.
