from angels and signs

I´m telling you a secret. Did you know that it exists??? You wonder what?
I´m speaking of an angel manufactory!
It is located in a tiny studio, best hidden on the country side. As long as this studio exists, it´s for sure that angels never will be expelled from this planet. Isn´t that comfortable to know? I thought it would be nice to have a handpainted wooden sign that I could hang above my fair booth next week, but now I´m in doubt. Shouldn´t I better make a trip to the copyshop? Otherwise I liked the idea to have a handmade sign....What do you think? oh I so adore Kiki Smith

I think the handmade sign is great. You also have business cards, tags on every item, postcards a.s.o. What about your webaddress on the sign?

well, I think its angelic!!!
And Moo cards from Flickr are a very nice way of reminding people of your contact details...
You should hang that sign with a rusty chain or something (the oh so rustic detail). And no, I´m not sponsored by flickr...:-)

engelhafte wikinger!!! wie schön, dass du uns das geheimnis der engelmanufactur verraten hast! da ist wohl im verborgenen gerade ganz schön was los....

ich glaube, ein handgemaltes schild ist gut für deine handefertigen dinge. das passt. und dann eben noch karten zum verteilen mit adresse, web-adresse etc.
liebe grüße

I like this handmade sign too, what's the reason for thinking about going to a copy shop by the way? Do you possibly think it looks to amateurish?? Well, IF, I can assure you it's a really professional looking handmade sign, which perfectly fits to your artwork. I won't put the web adress on the sign, think interested people will have a look at your stand and take a moo :-D

The stripy angels with golden wings are great. Your sign is also very nice. Good days.

thank you all so much for your help and sharing your opinions with me. I´ve decided to use the handmade sign, maybe pimp it a little bit, I think it´s still a bit naked and yes Bogi "amateurish" :o). This will reduce my to do list ;o)
@Beate: it´s a fair in Cologne, called "Kaufen und Kaffee". You can see details here http://herzensart.com/news/de/start.html
but I will send an invitation with email yet.

Guten Morgen, liebe Sandra,

oh ja, die Engel existieren. Ich hoffe, es steht gerade einer neben mir. Kann ihn gebrauchen. Und Dich wird er natürlich zu Deiner Ausstellung begleiten.

Keine Frage: nur das selbstgefertigte Schild!!!

Und Kiki ist eine phaszinierde, aparte, beeindruckende Frau.

Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin schöpferische Zeiten.

Cornelia

Hallo Sandra

Das Schild ist gut so wie es ist! Vielleicht nur ein wenig klein?
Wenn Du noch mehr grafischen "schnick-schnack" zufügst, lenkt das nur von dem Schriftzug ab. Zudem sieht man dann auch mehr von dem natürlichem Holzuntergrund.

Lieben Gruß und bis Sonntag
Ingo

Your angels are adorable and the handmade sign looks very good! We have a Chistmas fair the first weekend of December in Pico. I´ll put some pictures in the blog. Maybe one day you can come ...

Gelungenes, ansprechendes, anziehendes Aushängeschild!
