As I told you yesterday, today was a day of tying up lose ends. Gathering show supplies, packaging items, and doing all those last minute things. I feel like I am prepared and that scares me so far in advance…..I NEVER feel this way the night before any type of show.
My friend, Amy, and I will have some vegan yummies for sale tomorrow in our tent along with our humane society shirts and bags, and I will have a small selection of my handmade things.
After I got the kiln running this morning, I started making labels for my vegan food.
“H” for Hummus!
Tags for *cheese*cakes…vegan of course 🙂
Yummies labeled and tied.
Amy will have *N*ice Cream ~ homemade vegan ice cream which is delicious.
I also managed to get some more bags sewn. These bags are really trying my patience. The slippery material has a mind of its own under the presser foot!
I really like the shape and size of the dog food bags! I’d wear the short, wide one on the left as a purse…..but that is artsy, fartsy me 🙂
Now if that kiln would hurry up and cool down I would really be ready!
Hope all of you close by will be at Da Market in the morning….9am til 1pm.
Have a great weekend!
This post makes my 90th post!!! If I keep up this marathon blogging, in no time I will be on my 100th post!!! That day I will do a giveaway for my followers.
Today I worked on a few different projects. I have some orders from the show for my journal covers, so I started a few of those today. One of the orders is for a design different than any I have done….here is a sneak peek…..
I also worked on a project that has been at the back of my mind for a while now. Inspired by these two books……
*Whimsyland* & *Greetings from TucsaDelphia* by Liz and Beth Hawkins.
The designs in this book are full of fun and whimsy and that is top on my list when making something. After looking in these books, when I received them several months ago, I wanted to make some place mats.
So today *Vegan Blvd.* was created!
I love scooters and if the traffic here was decent I would drive one.
Tonight is pizza night, so in between sewing projects I have made some vegan sausage for the pizza and have the dough rising.
I am looking forward to dinner and using my new placemat!
Happy Creating….until tomorrow 🙂
Work continued today on the table and a few other things that I probably shouldn’t have started.
Look at how dirty my fingers are…..i dove into the bag of clay!
Now the big kiln is on and I love the smell of that firing!
I guess you all want to see the sofa table…….
It matches one of the pillows I have made and also a few pieces of artwork I have done, but i think I am going to use this to display my jewelry on. Which reminds me….I still need to show you some new jewelry pieces! In an upcoming post for sure!
I am still painting away on the chair…..I think I made it way too complicated, but oh well, I have to push thru and finish it now.I took a few minutes today to make some vegan brownies…..
They are so moist and chocolatey ~ you cannot tell they are vegan.
You can find the recipe here. They whip up very quickly. The hardest part is waiting for them to bake!
I have been pretty stressed and busy preparing for my upcoming art show next weekend, which means I have needed some comfort food, and boy did I ever find it!
Vegan Eggnog Cheesecake!!!!! This was so amazing!!!
I found the recipe at the Fat Free Vegan website
. Go and check out this recipe and others on the site. There are lots of amazing recipes!
This beauty sliced up better than any non-vegan cheesecake I have ever made in the past and you could not tell the difference. I am now inspired to try out different vegan cheesecake flavors also!
One of my latest creations for the upcoming show was a bar stool that I painted for an auction that will be held at the show called, “Take a Seat for Conservation”
There will be almost 30 chairs and bar stools, painted by artists, up for auction.
I am looking forward to seeing all the chairs and stools all together…..what a pretty sight that will be!
The art show is a show called, “Art for the Parks”. It is put on by the Bahamas National Trust
and is January 28th, 29th and 30th at the Abaco Beach Resort in Marsh Harbour.
If you are in the area I hope to see you at the show. There will be so much more there than art……crafts for children to do, a mural painting area, chalk art contest, an awesome food court, the art booths and much more!
