A Fun Time at the Art Fair

Great Music - this was one of the Bluegrass bands that entertained us!

Although the rain kept us indoors, the Music Festival/Art Fair was a fun time for all. The vendors and customers were kept dry and the entertainment was fantastic!

There are lots of talented folks here in the Nashville area, in both the artist and music realm.

Here are a few shots for the memory book:

"FRAGILE" - My Entry for the Decorate A Shoe Contest

One of the fun activities at the Music Festival & Fine Arts Fair being held this Saturday from 10am to 4pm at the Mount Juliet Senior Center is a "Decorate A Shoe" Contest.

There's been a lot of interest and I can totally guarantee some really creative entries. Plan on stopping by this Saturday and vote for your favorite shoe. Votes are .25 each, so pick many favorites and vote often. Voting proceeds go to the Mount Juliet Senior Center.

Here's a picture of my entry. My friend, Ashley gave me the idea to decorate a "Barbie" shoe since I'm on a roll with making "Barbie" furniture anyway. And Amy, my daughter-in-law, gave me the title, "Fragile." That's pronounced, FRA-GI-LEE, with the accent on the "GI." For those "Christmas Story" fans, you'll know just what I'm talking about.

For those interested, greeting cards and postcards of this print are available at:  http://zazzle.com/deborahcarmanstudio*

(Note: I'd like to thank the Barbie who sacrificed her leg to make this possible.)

Time for the event is scheduled from 10am til 4pm, plenty of time for any folks in the area to stop by and enjoy the festivities. There will be 5 - one hour music shows, artisan booths (of which I am one), food and drink and even a "Decorated Shoe Contest."
