Big Hat Holiday Show 2009

What am I doing? I need to be cleaning my house and studio, but I am stopping to do some blogging as I am sewing, working on dolls and dreaming of naps. And no, I never cleaned the studio after my shows since this sumer-I have just been piling on the stuff and supplies-I am just too far gone at this point and organizing will require professional help, a dumpster or both.
So here are some photos from the Big Hat Holiday show of a few of my pieces. These are pieces upstairs in gallery area. There are more downstairs in the book area too, but more on that later. I am trying to catch up on my reading of the books we are carrying in the store so I can know what I am recommending and talking about to customers. This is hard because my brain is extremely "wee".
I had to laugh at what the book store owner's 6 year son had to say about my paintings shown here. He said, "I knew these were yours!". I asked why and he said this, "Your art is the only art that has faces! And, it has tons of colours with the faces look like you. Those faces look like your doll's faces. They are all dreamy,weird ladies in fancy clothes just like you." Hee! He also calls me "Baby Bat Girl"(I have no idea why) or "My other Mama Merle"(I have only known him since August!). So now I call him "Baby Raccoon". We will be playing and his mom will think that something that has happened(which is not a good thing) was because of Baby Raccoon and yell for him to come to her right now because he is in trouble, but I have done it and then he gets to watch as I sit in the time out chair(which super tiny too). Yeah, these are the good times! They really are! If you want to know how to make a kid's day, let him or her see you sit in the time out chair-I mean, their smile is priceless-hehe!
OK, back to either cleaning or sewing or maybe I will just put myself in time out. It was kind of nice to be there and just space out for a bit.
