What a Lovely Day

What a wonderful day I had. My first show ever. It was a success!
Yeah!!
I meet so many interesting people. And I sold 2 originals. How exciting is that! And many prints and postcards.

It makes me so happy that my art is floating around the universe!

I sold my first print to a beautiful lady and her little girl. I have a picture of her in my camera , but I don't have it becauseI left it at my Uncles Solice party. (That's another crazy story). But I will be getting that camera back and I will post her picture. They were so sweet.  I let her get away after she bought the print, because I was so excited I forgot to take a picture of her. Soooooooo crazy as I am I chasing her up the street and she was so gracious to pose for some pictures.  Argh and I am the most unphotographic person ever!!!  All these skinny ass little people and I look like a big monster!! I really am much cuter in person!! I swear! (I think?!??)

I was so honored when Shelly Byrne bought my original "Bird Lady" What a compliment. Shelly is a well known artist in our area. And all over the US. She is also an old friend.  We go back to the old crazy days.

And look who popped into my stand!!! Reading's own Scoutie Girl, Tara Gentile!! Oh yes the poor girl!!! I almost mauled her to death!!! I screeched when I saw. She was so sweet.  Poor girl!!


This was the set up in the front of the booth with the prints and postcards. Nelly and I kept changing it up all day.

This was sitting outside the Tent.

  


I had such a blast!!!!

I wanted to say one thing I would not have been able to put this all together without my beautiful (I am going to cry now) daughter Nelly Bell.  She is an angel!! I will forever be grateful for my lovely girl.  (And I have no pictures of her, She is a pain in the butt sometimes too, I kept on saying I wanted a picture with me and her but you know these kids!)
And to my wonderful men Stevie and Mike!!! Thank you Guys for your brawn and muscles!!! Your the best!!!


Oh also!!!! TaDa!!! Tracy and Kellen are FINALLY after 71/2 years engaged. They are soooo cute!!!  Our family is Sooooo  excited!!!

The cutest couple ever!!!

And to top off the day Soltice party at Uncle Tim's!!

What a lovely day.....
and many more to come
