Ready (!?) for the market!

As usual, the week has flown by and I'm afraid it's going to be night work again to get everything finished .... Although I must say I'm much better prepared than other times. I've even tried out my table setting! Tonight I will go to the market hall to set up my table already, so tomorrow I will only have to bring in all my products that I'll hopefully sell ☺

I still have something in progress, a pink heart shaped box that I started a few days ago. It's nearly finished, needs some varnish and the inside needs to be colourwashed as well, but other than that it's ready.


Also finished my middle sized box and glued the canvas on.

 Here they are all three together (they fit inside eachother but I will probably sell them separately).

Painted some wooden magnets ....

And made some more Christmascards






For those of you who will be in the area: here's more information about the market I will be attending. It would be great to see you there. I will be inside the hall (I don't trust the sometimes very stormy weather here in Queensland ☺)

Well, that's it for this week. Gotta rush, kids' school is out in 10 minutes and then I'll need to start packing.

Thanks so much for visiting here. I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday. Go have a look there at all the amazing work of the participating artists, and join us if you like!

Hope your Friday will be lovely, and your weekend will be stressfree and relaxing! ♥ ♥ ♥

  1. I hope your art sales well! "Walk On" has always been one of my favourite songs since I was a kid. I used to listen to it on a 45 record that my mom bought when she was a kid. I spent hours singing along, trying to figure out the lyrics. The record player was in a cabinet with a black and white tv that had sliding doors to cover the tv and the whole system was a long as a bed. The record player had an automatic stem in the middle, where you placed the record on top, the record dropped and the arm with the needle came down automatically. Gesh, I forgot all about that entertainment centre. There was also a radio on the other end of the cabinet. So, thanks for helping to remember that"!

  4. Helaas kan ik niet langskomen morgen op de markt :) maar ik hoop dat je heel veel dingen gaat verkopen. Ik weet niet of het in Australie beter gaat dan hier. Ik heb onlangs nog op een kunstmarkt gestaan, maar hier is het meestal meer kijken dan kopen. Ik hoop dat je een succesvolle verkoopdag hebt. Aan je spullen zal het niet liggen, die zijn fantastisch mooi. Toi toi toi!!
    Liefs,
    Marianne
