Holiday Events with Tootsie's and Jonathan's Place


Yesterday and today I had a wonderful opportunity to do some more sketching for events! 
Tootsie's was having a wonderful trunk show for Sheryl Lowe Designs. The jewelry was beautiful, with gemstones and sparkling silver and gold - I wish Sheryl well with her collection! 


I had a wonderful time sketching customers, everyone seemed to have a great time and I met a lot of great people. Courtney Edwards from francisco+co was so kind to bring me in for this, and I look forward to more in the future. Live sketching has turned out to be a great way to network and meet all kinds of people. I met photographers, event planners, and so many more people!

As it turns out, my husband got an offer for some jobs in Houston. We may be moving away from Dallas - and hopefully this networking and the new skills I've learned will help me in my new home! (It's not set in stone yet, but it's a pretty good chance we will be moving)


The second event I sketched at was today, for a charity fundraiser for Jonathan's Place - a benefit for abused and abandoned children. It was an event held in the home of Ksenia Gonchar, a wonderful lady who was kind enough to invite me in for this wonderful event!


There were plenty of other people to draw and sketch - and more networking was to be had! So many fashionable and fabulous people are in Dallas! When my husband and I have to move, I will miss them! 


Not only was there sketching to be had, but the charity also had a silent auction! So many wonderful things were donated, from Dallas Star Jerseys and autographs to beautiful works of art and jewelry! Lublu from the Plaza at Preston was also there with their beautiful clothing! It was great to see friendly faces and meet new ones as well. 


By the end of the day, I had done plenty of drawing - and everyone seemed to have a great time. I hope I get to draw at another event like this again, it's so much fun! I also get to push myself and challenge myself to create illustrations quickly. 


I will miss Dallas when we move, but I will definitely come visit for any event that might need my drawing hand!

  5. Seems to be quite good information on the holiday events. I am looking for exotic New York venues for arranging a holiday party with my family and friends. Searched online and got to know about some amazing venues. Planning to book the best one.
