Final Show Preparations Completed

It's been quite an experience getting my projects ready to hang.  I was so busy getting everything together that I didn't take my usual in progress photos for each item.  Tomorrow the show goes up and I'll be able to get back to all of the things I've put off this week!

I have to give a big thanks to my husband, who added hooks and wires to all of my frames so they would work on the hanging system used at the Community Center.  He fixed 27 frames (only one was already set up the right way)!

Now our living room can get back to normal.  I've been stacking up the frames in what our sons call "pointless room #1" to keep them out of the way (I guess they are right about the amount of activity in the formal living room).

It is interesting to figure out ways to frame things like cards or ornaments.  I always pick up frames when I see them at a good price so I only had to add a few more to make things work out evenly (you know, I had to keep things as symmetrical as possible!).

The last thing I put together was my biography and "artist statement."  I added some photos of the Cricut and Cameo machines in action and gave a bit of an explanation about the ways I create designs.  The weathervane doily is hanging just around the corner from this sign.

I'll have more photos to share tomorrow once everything is hanging.  It's all packed up and ready to go - now to find my craft room under all of the debris!

I realized that I was so tired last night that I forgot to post this, so I added a photo of one of the new designs at the top.  I'll be back later tonight with more of an update about the show.
