A Big Art Walk Thank You!


Thank you!

Thank you for coming out for a day on the bay... you walked my way... brought a dog or two, or four or more! You stopped to say Hi! and even purchased a guy... A Friendly or two. A coin purse Monster, or four. Your comments I heard, each and every word. They enriched my life, they're reason to keep my hands in the deep pit of my wool, my oh-so-lovely wool...


I didn't take my camera... :o( I don't have good pictures to share. I was too busy in my booth world to stop and enjoy the view from the lovely space by the Bay where we perched. Thankfully Michelle was there on Sunday and took some pictures, and she captured the dog in his chariot that made us laugh out loud. She took a picture from our booth showing off our beautiful view... (I could only get it to come out teeny tiny!)


I met so many wonderful new people, like the girls who are in a sewing group, I loved meeting you three! I've met new people online too, and am touched by your compliments and words that make me feel like what I'm doing is real and relevant. (ok, I know it is, but it's always nice to hear it)

And, I owe the biggest hand-slap of thanks to my fan-tab-ulous booth helpers, Mollie on Saturday and Michelle on Sunday... you both totally rock! Ditto to my husband, Greg, who made all the hauling and booth set up a breeze. And my two boys, Drew and Kyle... part helpers, part cheer-up-ers, part go-getters. You guys are awesome :o)

My knitting girls came by and were my paparazzi, snapping photos of me on Sunday, sporting my fantastic vest which I now call the "Bee Vest". It looks a bit like a bumble bee, and even has one on the back. I have to say I think I look like a bumble bee in this shot... several woman tried on this vest and I think it looked so much better on them. It's a wonderful piece.

I sold many of my woman's pieces. Two I sold right "off my back"! I am planning to make more for the Talmadge Art Show... coming November 21st...
In the meantime, stay tuned for more news exciting from Val's Art Studio!!!

Hi Kelley! It was great meeting you too! I loved your fun booth filled with your adorable creations. I was sorry you didn't return at the end of the day for that super cute vest... it looked fabulous on you! Perhaps a trade would be in order... :o)
-x, Val

I love it! Look at what fun it is when you show up (in every way). I love the pics you did get and the descriptions. I hope you continue to do what you do ~ it looks/feels/generates happiness.

Keep it up!
