Pumpkin window painting

I don't too many windows for fall but the Southwest Diner in Boulder City always has me do their's up for Fall. 
They do a really cute job of decorating the outside of their building.
I tend to paint really large items so its easily seen as a person drives by.  Too many small items can just look cluttered.
They like to keep them up until it's time or snowmen so its just jacks. 
They have outdoor dining so this is one busy door.  It takes a while with all the interruptions.  
P.S.  They have really good home-style food.  I highly recommend them.

A little more detail...

 I bought these reindeer at the gift market...I just fell in love with them.  But as much as I loved them they still needed to little touch of Twiddlebugz to them.  
This is the before and after of what I did to them.  I always have to repaint the eyes, regardless of where the piece comes from.  I just like more detail.  
I added more line details, made his smile bigger, and some high lights...and the eyes of course.  
I really liked them before...but now I love them!
I'll have them at the next craft show.

Loving Deco Mesh

I have been crushing on deco mesh wreaths working with it.  
Well, deco mesh and ribbon that it is...I love ribbon. 
Here are a couple designs done in different colors so you can see just how different they can look. 
I'm totally crushing on the whole black and white theme of this wreath.
Same design with this one, except purple mesh and a reverse print on the polka dot ribbon.  Amazing how different they can look.  
Another black and white wreath with an orange jack-o-lantern with light up eyes.  
A great fall wreath with metal punkin and leaves. 
Halloween is so much fun to create.  Can you tell I love polka dots too.  
Lots of fun metal and wood pieces were used to create these wreaths. 
Most of these wreaths sold at my first show, but rest assured, I am creating more for the next one.

It's Time for the Harvest Festival!

Woo Hoo!  It's the first craft show of the season...the Harvest Festival is coming to Las Vegas this weekend, Sept 5-7!  This show brings lots of excitement for vendors and customers alike.  

Don't forget to bring your discount coupon or non perishable food donation for Safe Nest to receive $2 off your entry fee.  The Country Register has a discount coupon on the cover, the newspaper has been running coupons as well.  

I've seen TV commercials every morning this last week and this week during the news on Channel 8.  Billboards are up too.  Let's hope it brings in lots of excited buyers.  

This year, I sucked it up and spent the money to get a double booth so I can feature Christmas as well as Harvest and Halloween.  With that being said...please...come shop with us!  We've moved locations within the show to do this, you can find us on the first row in space 128. 

The show will be at Cashman Center and runs Friday and Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday 10 to 5.
We'll see you there!
