Today we are setting up the table and seeing what needs to be tweaked before our photographer comes in a couple days.
So, yesterday, I spray painted (with florist spray) my trees to make the area look more fallish.
I might have to get another can, I will see how this works out for the set up, it might be enough, to make the area look like it is early fall when the leaves start to change and the air has a slight chill at night.
Beth and I made up all of the swap screens from the piles of panels spread across my studio. And they were such fun. I loved the assembly part and kept saying each one was my favorite as I matched up the panels.
We also drew a name for the scarf winner, it goes to Rhonda
(ps- I am doing some hand dying this weekend and will plan on posting how to's on using fiber reactive dyes if you are interested)
I wish I could have made one for each and every swapper, I appreciate all they have done to make this a successful and pretty swapping experience!
I think we ended up giving out 27 tags along with the scarf, a purse from myself and one from Beth, and 6 gift certificates from Vintage Workshop, as well as each person getting a free download from V.Workshop too, along with the downloads of images for the swap itself.
Thanks again, everyone for all you did!
After Beth and I finished assembling panels and packing boxes and bags up, and I got my trees spray painted, I "made" this bird bath.
All I did was use Liquid Nails to glue a wash bowl to a pedestal that had lost its top years ago. We'll see how it holds up over the summer, and if the birdies like it.
It doesn't look at all like Autumn around here, Spring is bursting out all over.
Wish me luck with Carol today, faking a fall picnic!
And please, check out my previous posts for details on the two giveaways I have going on right now.
