Preparing for TRF 2016

14 days until opening day of the 2016 season at Texas Renaissance Festival!!!  Am I ready, you ask?  NOOOOOOO.  LOL!  But, I will make it happen.

Our shop was moved over one space and the Florence Market circle has changed to provide an open space behind the shops... My shoppe number is now F1... Due to the back of our shoppe being open to the patrons, we add an enclosed "back room" to store all the things that we don't want visible.  We started by thinking we would just cover the space with canvas tarps, but decided that it would not be waterproof enough.... soooo... I got the brilliant idea to find live edge cedar boards. Not an easy task... Not easy to find.  But, we found some!  In Bastrop, Texas, 2 hours from my house, at an awesome place called Wampler Manufacturing, LTD... family owned since 1963 and specializing in Eastern Red Cedar.  Great people and they can take care of all of your cedar needs.

Follow me on Facebook and Instagram... I'll be hosting TRF ticket giveaways... and I'll be joining forces with my dear friend Jennifer, of Gypsy Wagon Art, at the Black Castle/Shoppe 418, for an awesome raffle (details soon!).  You can. also, sign up for my email newsletter on the home page of my web site.

I would like to take a moment to thank some fabulous people... First, my husband, Bryan.  Couldn't do this without you.  Jana, Bella Rossa Salon, for always making sure my hair looks amazing during the festival.  Vicente, Blackcrown, for always making sure all my design work (business cards, web site, banners, etc) looks spectacular!  Thank you!!!

See you at the Festival!  Weekends, October 8th - November 27th.  HUZZAH!  

 

The siding going up... not easy to do with boards that are not straight/square.

We will be putting copper down the center to cover the seam. And, we'll be adding an old window to the opening.  This weekend's chores ;)

This guy... My husband. He made all my dreams and visions come true!  Could not have done it without him.
