Huffhines Art Trails

Huffhines Art Trails in Richardson this weekend!

by Lyn Foley on October 20, 2010

Well, y’all, I am scrambling again. Think I was a wee bit optimistic when I scheduled four shows almost in a row: Midland, Antique Weekend in Round Top, Bayou City in Houston, and now Huffhines Art Trails in Richardson. Having successful shows is a good problem though – right? Right! I’ve made five new necklaces today, and over the last week or so 36 pairs of earrings! Tomorrow will be photography day, and packing for the drive on Friday.  Several people who saw us during set up and break down in Houston said they didn’t realize how much work it was. Yep, it takes us about 3 hours to set up the tent and display cases. And if there is an artist pile-up like there was in Houston, make that set up 5 hours. Luckily, not every set up  happens at midnight and takes that long.  Then, on the opening  day of the show it’s another 2 hours to arrange the jewelry in the displays.

We haven’t done the Huffhines show before, so we don’t know what to expect. If you are in the area, come on over and see us. In spite of everything, I do have some fun new designs – especially in the earring department. Here’s  one new necklace I have photographed. I’ll post more photos tomorrow for a real sneak preview. Meanwhile – back to the bead board …..
