I have so much on my plate right now, I can't even figure out a place to begin! I am headed out to Holland today to set up my booth at the HOG HOUSE GALLERY. If you don't know what this is, it is basically an old HOG HOUSE (YEP, a real one!) that has been renovated into an Artist's Market of sorts. This is NOT a flea market, where you will find antiques. This is a GALLERY, if you want to call it that, where artists sets up a section in the 'Hog House' and sell their handcrafted wares. There are signs on 161 in Holland that are easily seen to help you find it, so just GO! HAHA! Also, since people are always taken 'aback' by the name of HOG HOUSE, they are renaming it The Gallery next year, I think.
I was supposed to be at the Hog House Gallery last year, but my surgery in May went bad, and things just went downhill from there, so being a vendor at the Hog House never happened. BUT, I am headed there TODAY and they are OPEN NOW!!!!!! YEP, that is RIGHT! You can come out and see me today, Saturday OR even Sunday! I won't be there the entire time the Gallery is open, but my "SCHTUFF" will be! So, even if I am not there, you can STILL SHOP! Isn't that cool? I will be there until around 2pm today, and hopefully will be there all day tomorrow from 10am to 4pm, I think it is. Friday's they stay open until 6pm or so, but I need to come home and get the kids off the bus at 3pm and before that, pick up Isaac at the babysitter's house. Sunday the Gallery opens at NOON and closes at 4pm, or so. I know I will be leaving by 4pm!!
My items, including paper-crafts, will be there for your viewing pleasure until July, and then depending on how busy I am and how my sales go (if it is worth my time, in other words) I will stay at the Gallery until November! There is a splendid BBQ cookout planned over 4th of July weekend, and I hope to be teaching some basic beading classes, as well as some kids' crafts, too! I am going to talk to the head hauncho's today about getting the Gallery's blog started (by myself, if need be!) so you can see pics and read posts about the going-on's of the events there!
Well, I better run! Gotta get unpacked and ready to move into the Gallery! Come out and see me if you can!
Enjoy your FRIDAY!
