Whoopee! We Survived Houston
International Quilt Festival, Houston 2010 is but a memory...we have survived to tell about it. After many long hours of setting up our booth Kristin is just a wee bit slap happy. Our booth is ready for opening night, even if we could have used a quick nap. They opened the doors at 5 PM Wednesday for Preview Night and the crowds were still there at 10 PM absolutely ready for a weekend of fun. Our booth looked pretty good when we finally finished, packed full of goodies just waiting to find a new home.
For those of you who have not been to Houston this is the Make It University "MIU" open classroom. We each taught 2 classes, we had loads of fun and hope all those who participated did too.
Kristin worked in Open Studios showing how she makes her Mixed Media Collages on watercolor paper on Satuday. Here she is enjoying chatting with the attendees. She also made several ATC (Artist Trading Cards) for trading. Attendees come to the "tree" in MIU just to trade their artwork and chat with like minded souls. Kristin enjoyed trading her little pieces of art.
