Just some quick updates so you know I haven’t forgotten about you!
This holiday craft season has been a whirlwind- first Handmade Arcade in Pittsburgh, then Indie Craft Experience in Atlanta and in a about an hour, I’m heading up to Jersey City for the Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair: Holiday Edition that runs tonight and tomorrow at Art House Productions! I’ve been photographing awesome stuff every where I go and have been meeting such awesome vendors! I cannot WAIT to write about them all- I have a running list of entries to write (including Chicago in September- eek! all those weddings took over my life for a while).
If you take a look on the right, you’ll see what shows I still have coming up- including the BUST Magazine Craftacular in NYC on Saturday, December 10th (it’s a two day affair, but I’ll only be there Saturday!) and the R5 Punk Rock Flea Market in Philadelphia on Sunday, December 11th- two events that I’ve never participated in before! I’m pretty excited.
Also, the last weekend before Christmas, I’ll be a vendor at Crafty Balboa on Saturday, Dec. 17th at the Broad Street Ministry. I just took a look at the vendors who will be there this year and WHOA- Amy outdid herself with awesome-ness. Seriously though- there will be some top notch vendors that you really shouldn’t miss. AND, if you’re one of the first 50 people there, you get a free swag tote bag! BOOYA.
In other news, on Thanksgiving, I discovered my studio was filled with about 6 inches of water due to sump pump failure. I had kept a lot of stuff off of the floor, but I still had to throw out boxes of supplies, cardboard, paper, fabric, etc. Anyhow, perhaps it was the impetus I needed to clean everything up- so now, my wonderful boyfriend and I have begun completely repainting the walls in hopes to reduce the awful humidity I was dealing with in the summer. The painting/sealing process has slowed down new work creation for the time being, but I hope to be back in full swing in January!
Hope to see you this holiday season 🙂
