Pics from D/fw family expo

Here are just a few pics from the day. I will add to this post as I receive the photos.

This one is my fav painting that day. This little boy came to me soo desperate to be a "rock star". I was on tight time limitations as far as the designs went, so i made it simple, but the look on his face was awesome! What a rock star!

A view of my little set up. "keep it simple" they said. well, ok. i got the important stuff, including my new brochures for both of my businesses.

Me and a good friend and fellow painter, lauri. Gearing up for the crowds! Sayyyy cheese!

D/FW family expo

D/FW Family expo was a blast! Thank you to all who came out to say hi, it was great to see you.
It was a very long day, with set up at 8am and painting from 10-5, but so worth it. I made several great contacts and even booked a few jobs. I can't think of a better way to stretch out the rusty fingers after a winter break from painting. =)

Spring is coming, and that means updating old photos and designs and restocking supplies. I'd better get on it! Easter is right around the corner!

Can't wait to see you all again very soon,
and as always- remember Cheeky Designs for all you party entertainment needs.

P.s.- pics from today's event are coming soon. =)
