I also found out that there is another show coming up, with a winter theme. It will be in early December. Sign-ups for the limited slots available filled up within hours of the event being announced and... I got in! I signed up both of our home businesses: Cut By Light (our laser business) and of course, Horse Tender Studio.
I've been advised that holiday and winter-themed items are what will sell well. One of my first ideas is one that I've wanted to try, but didn't really have a "reason". Now I do have a reason! I present: the first herd of ornaments (before being painted):
Tonight I did a bit of paintwork on one of them.
He looks a little whacky at the moment, but he'll get there.
I had thought I'd do a few in holiday-themed decorator colors and do a few in realistic colors. I may end up doing all of them in fantasy colors - just because. It's nice to get back to painting horses and not have to stress over realism or the idea of "LSQ". I did a quick prep on them and then declared them ready to paint.
I'm not sure how many I'll end up doing, it's always a gamble trying to decide how much of anything to take to a sales event.
My other idea is to make Christmas cards and other Christmas ornaments - primarily tatted ones I think. I'll probably take whatever cross necklaces I have left, and who knows what else.
I'm thankful and excited to have a set event on the calendar to work towards.
