A few months ago I, along with mom and my sister Claudia, took a wine glass painting class at Prairie Ridge of Galena, where my mom is now living. Claudia and mom weren’t really excited about the class but humored me and went along. I really enjoyed it and found it be sort of therapeutic.
Long story short I’ve been painting wine glasses, making matching napkins and wine bottle covers and selling them with all of the proceeds going to “We Believe in Katie.” And, although Claudia didn’t enjoy the painting part, she is REALLY good at choosing fabrics, designing displays, and packaging! So in many ways it’s been a team effort.
I’ve had a couple of shows and this Saturday, February 9th, I will be selling the results of my new hobby at the Purple Goose Boutique in Verona from 10:00 – 4:00.
The second Saturday of the month Haley Jones, the owner of the Purple Goose , opens up the second floor of her boutique for people like me who sell their art work/crafts.
Stop by if you can and keep in mind if you don’t find the arts/crafts of interest she sells really neat clothes!
I’m also thinking about offering wineglass-painting classes. I thought it might be fun for a group to get together have a little wine, paint a wineglass, laugh, have fun and donate to a worthy cause! I’ll keep you posted about that part of this new hobby.
Maybe I’ll see you Saturday!
