Alfresco Saturday – market set-up

I have a big fundraiser market tomorrow and today was designated set-up.
A beautiful sunny last-day-of-Autumn day.

Gotta have a coffee on hand for a job this big…..

Alfresco Saturday – neglected, forgotten

A day where the weather doesn’t know what to do,
My messy excuse for a work room,
Another coffee started and forgotten as I make more jewellery.

Come and check out my website!!

Hi there everyone. I have been busy completely sorting my jewellery and updating and tidying my website.

I have some more items to upload, but please come over and check out the new clean theme and all the pretties I have for sale – loads of necklaces and bracelets.

Don’t forget to share with your friends if you like what you see.

MARCATO DESIGNS

Well, after nearly two weeks of work (interrupted of course by other seemingly important this like family and Art Trails) I have finally finished my website.
It has had a total overall: new pages, new products and a new look.
The only thing I haven’t put on it is a shopping cart. I realise that may be shooting myself in the foot, but until I find the funds to get a proper site done up or find a better way to incorporate shipping into it, it will have to wait.
For any sales and enquiries a simple email is all it takes and I can arrange the best price for you (and invoice via PayPal).

Pease wander across and have a look, I’d really appreciate any feedback you can give me (aside from any typos I’m sure I’ve missed) as it can only help in the long run and don’t…

(oops… forgot the title, so here it is ‘updated’)

I have been rather busy this last week.  Not always the way I want to be, but, we can’t always have everything our own way.  I haven’t been able to read a lot of my emails, or blogs, so next time you post I will try to catch up, reading multiples as I get to them.  I try not to let them sit in my inbox for too long, this is how I ended up with over 300 of the suckers.  I did delete many, but as I said, I will return and catch up.

Hubby was home so we took a day trip to the Airwalk (there’ll be a post later on that one), we helped my parents with wood and moving furniture around for my mum’s shop, I started on my Circles project (which got me thinking about something else again) and then there was the general kids, work and weather which wasn’t always playing nice, making it hard to do things we wanted to.

I have a market coming up this weekend which I have been organised for (for once, early) although I will re pack my boxes just to make sure I have everything… some things have changed.

My circles are coming along nicely, the finished product looks like it might actually look good!
This gave me another idea. And now a new way to move forward (I seem to be doing a lot of this lately).
I found that doodling with the paint, and playing with material on a canvas gave me another sense of freedom to explore and express and be creative.  Mixed Media.  That was it.  Doing and making more items that are not strictly jewellery or bags, but could be collage, artwork, wearable art… whatever takes my fancy basically.  And as I have resin, clay and stamping tools I can add all or any of these items in – this is precisely what mixed media is – to make some cool items.

This idea was first sprung when a good FB friend suggested I use some of my nature shots on cards to sell.  She is impressed by my ‘skills’ as a photographer.  My mind then went zooming about at a million miles an hour – as it does anyway – and soon I am thinking “why not?”

I have some more mini canvases that I am going to collage and take to the market this week.  It is a bigger market than my usual one, and going on the first one they had, plenty of people coming through. So plenty of feedback.
I shall become a mixed media artiste. lol.
(At least my business name will cover all avenues I choose to do)

So with that I must fare thee well, and head off to bed.  After the last few nights, and especially yesterday (leave home at 9.30am and return at 10.40pm, with many ‘nothing-to-do’ gaps in between the jobs and not getting to bed for another hour)  I am now feeling weary; and if I am to survive a busy day tomorrow and do my walk at a reasonable hour of the cold winters morning…. zzzz

good morning, good afternoon and good night, for wherever you may be 🙂
