Bad Girls Part Deux

As promised, here are some more images of some of my favorite booths from the Bad Girls of the North Show. Thought I'd show you a picture of our male Giant Schnauzer, Nimbus and his FIRST snowfall this week. Anchorage received anywhere from 3-8 inches and Girdwood over a foot! I think in a past life Nimbus must have been a Yetti. He is crazy for the snow. Enjoy!

It's fun to know that Stacie Smiley -Stray Cat Designs, and I both are now full time artists...not only did we go to school together as kids but in our past lives we both worked for JC Penney at the same time -she was a Women's Dept. Manager and I was the Display Manager! Thank goodness we're now just Bad Girls of the North!

Elise Strauss of Koi Creek Beadworks and I have been friends for years. Her hand made glass, lampworked beads are incorporated into one of a kind jewelry and art. Her display was lovely and her work has received National attention at major bead shows. She also has an amazing agility dog named Dewey! Go Elise!

Linda Smith was my booth neighbor. I watched every customer be drawn into her beautifully merchandised display of seed bead woven jewelry and art. All of her pieces are one of a kind. She even had lovely, small scale paintings in her display. The sheer beauty of her layout was probably one of the best designed booths at the Show -and the customers agreed!

Carol Green -Sound Soap and Vicki Potter -Orion Designs, the creators of Bad Girls of the North.
Thank you ladies for putting on such a FABU Show!

What a well-put together show! And thanks for all the photos of the booths! Love Nimbus in the snow! (and I like how you've changed your banner to the winter Alaska scene)
