Last Wednesday night I participated in a RAW Madison Show at Segredo’s. It was AMAZING! It was such a unique experience and I had a really good time doing it. Not only did I get a new dress, new shoes, my hair done, a ‘night out’ with my hubby, but I got to meet and see some truly amazing artists. The musical entertainment was amazing – three different bands, a great DJ, and a dancer. I even saw my very first fashion show – so cool! I really hope to attend one just as an observer at least once in the future and even be an artist again – maybe for my art quilts next time….hmmm…
Here are some of the photo’s that Angela Voell of Green Paint Photography took of me (head shots were part of being in the show and a video is being made too…I’ll be sure to post that as well) and my booth:
This is Samiera – the new Madison Area RAW director sporting a pair of my earrings! Setting up my booth!
Typewriter Rings EarringsI used what I’m pretty sure are fruit crates to put my earring cards on. Before the last Craftacular I spray painted them all with black chalkboard paint. Now I can group the earrings by price and just mark with chalk on the display. I think it’s been really nice for the buyers – they can see how much the earrings are before pulling them off the rack. Coming soon to the Apple! Eye Glass Necklaces! There I am smiling! I LOVE the picture above of me being serious but it’s so not who you see me as usually! Another great thing about this show was getting to see my friends in a different than normal setting! I would love to go again just so I have a chance to chat and hang out a bit more with them next time! You can see my set up in the back right… At the end of the night they had all the artists come to the front for picture. Before this happened the models all joined us – as you can imagine they are all way taller than us so I just moved ahead and joined in the line!
And this picture was taken by another artist at the end of the night:
Me and my hubby, Jared. Jared is such a HUGE supporter of me! He’s not a big fan of crowds but he still was by my side the whole night and helping me with whatever I needed. he is truly amazing and I know I wouldn’t accomplish what I do without his encouragement and support!
