City Arts Market at Eastern Market May 31, 2008

It was fun today, and a really great art selling day..despite the near tornado!!! I was sentimental, as my first day of ever selling my art was last year, opening day of Eastern Market...remember me on the sidewalk:-)
I am truly enjoying making things I love from things I find...things that would have been thrown away. I am really enjoying making new friends and seeing old Eastern Market area neighbors the guy who wore orange pants last November to Community Arts Market, and today he looked kind of eccentric too. funny things like that. And also, I enjoy talking to the area the guy who's been clean for 18 months, etc...
I hope all those little girls love their custom name signs, I enjoyed making them.
see you all next week:-)

It's Showtime...

Tomorrow is City Arts Market at Eastern Market, the opening day...9-3:00...
I am really excited to see everyone!
When I look at all the things I've painted since I was last there in makes me laugh!
I have so many things- you should see my car right now, I'm loaded up like a nearly busting out the windows...
Also, I really worked up to the last minute. I never paint the day before a show, but today I made 10 magnets, 4 little girl things, put the wire back on a Mary plaque, made all the labels for my crosses.
I also am breaking tradition in that I always do a mock set-up before the big day, but I didn't this time, so I will see what it all looks like tomorrow.
And so much more color this year...everything looked neat at the Punk Rock Flea Market, but this stand will be twice as big, so I'll have fun at 8:15 in the morning laying it all out.
if anyone is coming by early, please bring Miss Maggie a croissant. :-)
See you there!

Punk Rock Flea Market at The Chameleon Club

Thanks to everyone who came to my booth today- I hope all you buyers love your stuff! It's fun to think that there are (multiple!) people out there tonight hanging my art on their walls!!!!
It was really fun, and so good see everyone.
If you want more of me, I'll be at City Arts Market, May 31 at Eastern Market.
I am tired from carrying my stuff down 3 flights of stairs, but it was really worth it! (and everyone was super nice!)
i felt like my name should be Maggie Light-Bright! today. When you came down the stairs from the upper level, my stuff by the Tiki Bar was like...colorific world:-)
c ya!
