Ideal Home Show – Working Away

 Working away for The Ideal Home Show

 

Still lots of finishing touches  to be done, not to mention  planning and organising but it’s all very exciting stuff.

The only thing to do :

Create a checklist!

  • How is the framer getting on with all the new work I gave him?
  • Check with printer – enough business cards? greeting cards?
  • Labels / name tags / prices ….
  • Layout – now that’s a big one to decide – what goes where and which paintings sit best together?
  • Will everything be ready on time ?

and on it goes …..

I am excited about the collection I will have at my Stand N40.

It will be an eclectic mix of paintings that I think you will like.

There will certainly be something for everyone.

This really is a great opportunity to get ahead of the posse as regards  Christmas  – shhhhh!  (I am whispering here),   but this   IS   the place to go to make your design changes for your home,  or  to get that  unique gift for Christmas before all the madness starts.

So do stop by my stand and take time for a chat.

Remember, the show runs for four days, so  come and say hello – and if you’ve missed the deadline to download free tickets, send me a message, and I will be happy to send some on to you.

See you then!

House Event Continues – Last Day


House Art Loft

The House Event continues for one more day

Join me at Stand L39 in the Art Loft

Here are some photos taken over the last day or so

 

Day One and all the fuss and excitement of setting up.  What to bring, checklists that itemise drills, screws, labels, ladders …. and the list goes on and on. Starting with a clean canvas (pardon the pun) and within no time at all, the empty shell is filled with lots of paintings and hey presto – we’re ready!

House Event Continues - Last Day

Pleased to take part in the panel discussion and to talk about painting!

 

Some of the lovely visitors that came to my stand  and some paintings on their journey to their new homes.

Tomorrow is the last day so I do hope you will come along and visit if you are in the area.
