The season has started for those fun and festive Art shows. You know the ones, they can be held in school gymnasiums', church social halls, residential homes as well as some of the larger venues. Many of you have your own special ones where you gather some friends and make a day of it,traveling to the different shows then going out for lunch to show off what you have bought
. I have a tradition with my own group of friends where we go to the most creative of the shows and glean ideas to make our gifts. Now that we are older and have done this many years, we enjoy peoples creativity but if we see something we like we buy it., who has the time any more to be that cleaver.
Next week I will have a booth at one of my favorite venues. The Tacoma Dome Holiday Food and Gift show. It starts on Wednesday and goes thru Sunday. There is an admission charge but the amount of creative people you find there is well worth the money, especially if you don't have the time to go out each weekend to find your gifts.
If you go be sure TO BRING: your coupon ( enclosed in the blog) , good walking shoes and YOUR LIST of people you need to shop for. The great thing about this show is once you have paid the admission you are paid for the rest of the days as well.
oh.... and stop by my booth I will be in the Artist-in-Action area # 0739
