What’s new!?

Yesterday was a wine and art fair that I set up at …

…and although I had a beach-theme going I also had come up with something new to try out. I was trying to think of smaller items that might sell well at an art and wine Fair and (right or wrong) I came up with the idea of these mini sketchbooks.

The only problem I think I encountered is that perhaps people were more into drinking wine down sketching or creating art in little books. But I really think these are cute. It would have taken a good number of them to make up for the Boost fee but I never seem to have been concerned with making a profit in the past so why would I have started now? LOL

This one would have been priced at $10 had I remembered to take it. But I had painted the sailboat on it just the night before and left it out to dry. Therefore it got left behind.

Oh well I had several other Mini some with watercolor paper some with sketch paper the small ones were priced at $7 and the larger ones at $10. All of them with original art as their covers. Perhaps this line would have appealed more to artists I think when you go to a wine and art Fair you are looking to drink wine and possibly collect art for your home. Hopefully I will remember that by this time next year when I am trying to make a decision as to what should be on my table.

I did sell one painting, thank you Amy, and it was one of my favorites. I’m glad it went to someone I know. Have a great Monday and make it a wonderful week whatever that means to you.
