Weekly Challenge for April 15th 2012 - Allison L Norfleet Bruenger Collections

Weekly Creative Challenge for April 15, 2012

Apply for Shows and Looking for Opportunities!!

Well this year has started off with a bang. The "Queeny Park Spring Art Fair" was great. I redesign part of my booth with new banners and a couple of new fixtures and it went over well. I also introduced some new look for 2012. I have added more Sterling Silver to some of my designs and I also introduce within my "Art within Art" line some new drawing with a more abstract appeal. Next week I will show the two designs that new look. This week I'm featuring two of my designs with that natural worn through and distress feel.

With all of these new additions it makes it hard to decide which look to enter into the fun world of jurying for shows. Many of the shows for the fall season already want you to throw your hat in the ring. That means jury fees and booth fees being sent out daily and then the waiting begins. Well that is the nature of the business. I hope this will be a great year with lots of opportunities. Well here is this week's entries for my weekly challenge. One of these as well have already found a home but I hope they give a little beauty to the week. Enjoy!

Take Care and Stay Creative.

Weekly Challenge for April 8th 2012 - Allison L Norfleet Bruenger Collections

Well I'm Back and Creating with a Vengeance !!!!!!!!!!

I can truly say the end of 2011 was Great and
Very Very Very Busy. It has taken me 3 months to regroup after the holiday season and I have worked on developing a new look and a couple of new lines. As this year progresses, I will be introducing new lines such as the "Mini Art within Art" line and "Metal Textured" Earrings just to name a few. It has been a challenge but I'm working on creating one of a kind pieces that can knock one's socks off.

This year has started off well. I have already been in 2 Spring Shows and the totals were higher than the same time last year. I feel truly blessed at the growth but I know there is still a lot of work and designing to be done. I have been signing up for workshops that will help me to add a new dimension to my work. I have also purchased new equipment such as a riveting tool and specially designed saw to aid me in my creative process.

Well, even though one of these pieces has already found a great home, I wanted to show you these 2 new pieces. For this past show I created 16 new pieces and I will be showing them to all of you over the next few weeks. Well I hope you enjoy these new pieces as much as I have.

Take Care and Stay Creative!
