Decorative Painting and Heart of Ohio Tole Convention (HOOT)

The Creative Arts Lifestyle team just returned from the Heart of Ohio Tole Convention, held at the Columbus Convention center.



Creative Arts Lifestyle team ready for Heart of Ohio Tole Painters!


Attending trade shows are a great way to surround yourself with like minded people, but it’s even better when those folks are your friends and customers. ¬†You get to shake hands or hug… giggle and share, demonstrate and inform.


Painting Friends from Upstate NY


The team from HOOT did a great job getting the word out and are always friendly.


Set up is the brutal part…It takes two full days and a team of 6 to get it all ready.


Painted Lace Ornaments and  Amazing Transformed Glasses by Lisa Schall are all part of the creativity at a Decorative Painting Show



Creative Use of one of our Stencils! Designed by Judy Westegaard Jenkins


Of course finding my designing friends for a relaxing glass of wine after set up
is always fun and filled with giggles!

Veronia, Deb Antonick, Sandy McTier, Tracy Moreau and Patricia Rawlinson


The Husbands that help us are always amazing… we caught them on the last day comparing notes or trying to be our “Hoot Boys” lol…


Always happy to get there…

Always fun to talk with other Decorative Painters!


Happy Painting!
