It certainly is a work day! The RDS Hall where the show takes place turns into a building site. Everyone has a job to do and every tool is put to full use. Within the space of a few hours, chaos turns into a certain type of order.
Just a few finishing touches for tomorrow.
The lighting will be on.
There will be a place for everything with everything in its place!
We slip out quietly carrying our quota of tools – drills and ladders and God knows what else!
We have a nice presentation (I hope) on our Stand N40.
This stand is right beside all the talks on interior design etc.
Tomorrow I shall enjoy listening to all those tips. See more here
Come along over the weekend and see / hear what the Ideal Home Show can offer you and be sure to drop by my stand at N40 and say hello.
You just might find that perfect piece of art to make your home the Ideal Home.
I’m continuing to work away towards the launch of the Ideal Home Show this coming Friday.
Hectic but happy, I thought I’d take some time out (by way of a little diversion) to tell you about the painting
I have created many of these canvas flower paintings in the past. So much so, that I have similar paintings in my home as they hold enchantment or magnetism that I am drawn to.I had been commissioned to create some pieces for a business a long time ago. Recently, I had the pleasure to see my paintings “in situ”It was so pleasing to me to discover that the owner still loved the paintings all these years later. They had taken on a life of their own and become conversation pieces.As an artist, there is nothing nicer than to get some positive feedback on where your paintings have travelled to and become a part of a new home or business place. It’s a g-o-o-d feeling!I will have a selection of these paintings available at Ideal Home Show.If you are in Dublin, come take a look and stop and chat for a while.I’d love to see you. (Just a few tickets left – Contact me if you would like free tickets)
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.
