Holiday Shows are around the corner!

5 Oct

Rawhide Studio is gearing up for the 2018 holiday season! The fun starts on November 17th & 18th at the Christmas in Windsor show in, you guessed it, Windsor CO. The Atlas Holiday show is right in Cheyenne on November 24th, easy-peasy. Rolling west on route 80, Rawhide Studio sets up at the University of Wyoming’s Holiday Mart for one day on November 30th.

The TearDot Little Guy trailer will head  north up route 25 to Lander WY for Art in the Afternoon on December 2nd and finally south on December 9th for the Boulder Holiday Gift Show

Wow its a busy season but we will tuck in some family time for Thanksgiving in Colorado and Florida for Christmas. Hope to see you at one of our holiday shows!


The TearDot is ready to roll for our Lander Holiday show

Spearfish Festival in the Park

13 Jul

One of our favorite shows is just around the corner! First of all Spearfish South Dakota is a great little city to visit. First the important stuff… Leones’ Creamery. Its the best ice cream shop for miles with interesting flavors like Horchata and a “pay it forward” board where people  pay in advance for friends they know will be coming in or for groups like teachers or firefighters etc. What a fun idea! Who doesn’t want to be recognized with a free ice cream. Ok, now on to the show. On July 20th -22nd dozens of art and craft booths will wind along side Spearfish Creek and in and around the park. Also expect a great line up of music and food booths and all this goes to benefit the Matthew’s Opera House and Arts Center. This year Rawhide Studio will be in booth space 117A. So if you are on your way to a Black Hills vacation stop in and say howdy! FIP18-1200-collages-1-1024x536


Of course our Little Guy TearDot will be going up with us and camping in the campgrounds right next to the show! Our Townie bikes will be hitched to the back too. There is a great bike trail in town.

Art in the Park

18 Jun

Rawhide Studio will be on the road this Saturday heading to Brighton CO for Art in the Park!  Located in Carmichael Park, its a one day festival on June 23rd from 10-4:00 pm. Rawhide Studio will be introducing their biggest, boldest earring yet and a new sapphire blue paired with copper or silver. Gorgeous!  See you there!


Garden and Show Season!

17 Apr

Rawhide Studio had a good show last weekend at Laramie County Community College during the Laramie County Master Gardeners annual conference. All that talk about gardens, seeds and planting made us anxious for planting season in Wyoming. Unlike some areas of the county, folks like the Master Gardners always tell us not to plant till the end of May. With a few weeks left till we can get our seeds and starts in, we will have to be content with looking at seed and plant catalogs. Here’s to hoping for a good show and garden season in 2018!


Cheyenne Arts Festival and the Solar Eclipse!

New Teardrop, New Summer Show Schedule!

10 Apr

Last summer our 1974, custom built wooden Teardrop breathed its last on route 85 just 20 minutes outside of Cheyenne ( see Sept 25th blog post for all the gory details!).  The good news is it prompted us to start the search for a newer, more reliable Teardrop.  If you have ever been in the market for a nice used Teardrop, you know you have to jump on it when you see something you like!

A few months ago we were shopping in Fort Collins on a Saturday when I decided to look on Craigslist as we were leaving Costco’s parking lot. “Dave, pull the car over and look at this ad for a Little Guy Teardrop” I said. After scanning the ad for details and location, we turned the car around and headed for Aurora CO. I called my cousin Janette who lives there and said, “Can we stay overnight? We’re looking at a Teardrop in your neighborhood”. Janette graciously agreed and offered us a new toothbrush for our unexpected and unprepared overnight. We looked, we bargained, and with a handshake agreement we were the owners of a 2014 Little Guy 5 wide. We returned to Aurora the next weekend, handed over a wad of cash and picked up our Teardrop.

Our new Teardrop has a TV and stereo system! Uptown!

The last few months we have been improving the galley, the interior and generally putting our own personality into it. Its now ready to hit the road as our home away from home during the summer art show season. We don’t have all our show commitments in yet but here is what the 2017 show season looks like so far.



We hope to see new and old customers at our summer shows! If you see the Rawhide Studio Teardrop on the road, give us a toot and a wave!



Rawhide Studio gets ready for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!

6 Mar

If you haven’t heard about it yet, the USA will be getting a coast to coast total solar eclipse on August 21st 2017! I didn’t know how big a deal this was until I began researching the event. Well….not to be left out, we have developed an earring so ladies across the country can view this awesome natural phenomenon in style! Simple, elegant, lightweight, sparkly and as always, hypo-allergenic. The Solar Eclipse Earring‘s  inner disk is a velvety shade of deep grey with flecks of nature’s glitter- mica. The outer, “corona” disk is a shimmering gold. All this style for only $21 and so wearable any time of the year.

If you are interested in finding out where and when the best viewing opportunities will be, visit

Casper Wyoming is proud to be one of the top ten destinations in the country for optimal viewing. To find out what is happening in Casper for the great event, visit
