New Banner, New Gallery

I think I'm going to change my banner monthly....it's fun to figure out what works best for each month...this one is in honor of the upcoming El Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead as well as the usual Halloween celebration.
I've now got my work in the three galleries I wanted to put it in; the 9th Street Gallery here in Newport, Touchstone Gallery in Yachats (a small coastal village about 25 miles south on Hwy 101) and the River Gallery in Independence, which is a small town in the valley, not far from I5, our major north/south freeway through Oregon. The only other venue for my work is my etsy shop...just in case you can't make it to Oregon for your holiday gift shopping, lol!
Still working on the prototype for the next bead journal project....I hear (from pam, our wonderful registration fairy) that we've got almost 100 folks signed up already! Wow...can't wait to see how many we end up with by the December 15th deadline!

Like your Day of the Dead PCs...one of them looks great as your banner. I was just thinking the other day that it's time I changed my banner too!

The banner looks great. Love how you snuck that skeleton in. Its a long way to 12-15. We are sure to get lots more registered at BJP.

Hope all is well with you.

Love the banner! So October and Dia de los Muertos with such a gorgeous fabric as a background. Great taste my dear, as always.

LOVE this banner, but put a skull on anything & I'm so there.

I'm trying to figure out what I want to do next year for BJP too.

Way to go on the galleries, Bobbi. Love the new banner. I need to change mine too. I'm with you on trying to decide what to do for BJP this next year. It's so encouraging to see so many sign up again. I'm trying to get some of my locals to give it a try this year.

Thanks for all the great comments! I'm out "visiting" as many blogs as I can today since it's a low energy day and I try to save blog hopping for that kind of day...

A new banner every month seems like quite a lot of work, but Oh-so-fun for us!!!! Love this one!!!

Congrats on the three galleries. I hope they'll be selling well for the holidays.

Are you going to change shapes for the BJP? I've done postcard shapes for 2 years and am a bit tired of it... Am thinking of a change...

beadbabe49 said...

thanks, robin...yes...I'm looking at hand shapes right now...used my own palm and copied it and used the copy as a pattern to cut it out in cotton.

Your header is great. That's a great idea to change it once in a while. Me- I've stuck to the once part, lol.
