Hello friends and followers! I’ve been M.I.A for quite a while now, but for good reason- I’ve been hitting the studio hard getting ready for the upcoming holiday shopping season! (see the side bar on the right for my schedule this season) Additionally, an exciting last-minute opportunity came my way this month and I decided to go ahead and seize it; I’m so pleased to announce that exit343design now has a permanent brick + mortar presence in the Serendipity Shops of Avalon in Avalon, New Jersey! This space differs from other retailers I work with in that this is actually my own little space that I manage and maintain on my own. Last night, I trekked down to install just in time for their big Black Friday sales event that’s coming up quickly. The store is open 10-5 until January, weekends from January-March, and 10-10pm every day during the spring/summer season. So please, if you’re in the area, stop in and see what’s happening! A big thank you to Nicole and Barbara for this wonderful opportunity!

Check out Serendipity Shops of Avalon on Facebook for the most up-to-date hours and events!

Here’s my space! I have fresh stock of 6 onesie designs, a new large beach tote, 6 tees, and a variety of art prints and stationery!


Check it out- a whole row of Christmas cards, including three new styles coming to the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market with me this weekend!


Sunday stressed-out Stephanie with no makeup- so glad to have gotten this all together in such a short amount of time!

crafty balboa is one of my favorite shows to do and bonus- it’s in philly! this year, i had the help of my friend katy for the one day event. here she is with my table- she looks like a floating head.

here’s some awesome stuff i came home with:

it seems every holiday i do a swap with melo studios– which is fine by me because i love love LOVE their eco-friendly scented soy candles. my favorite scent? honeysuckle, hands down. although for winter, i snagged  i also got to trade with amber phea jean– how cute is that hair clip? thanks so much for the swaps, ladies!

i fell in love with bethany amilkavich’s elegant ceramic designs. each piece was a soft, cool color with textile impressions. i picked up some buttons for a future project and these two necklace pendants. i wish i could find a website to link to more work 😦

so loving this sweet letterpress card from huldra press.

i loved this coaster set from wishbone letterpress SO much, i got one for myself and for my friend caitlin!

the last two photos are works by my friend bryan from yardsale press– how awesome is that soft pretzel ornament? he made it for the 2011 holiday ornament show at nice things handmade in philly (which, by the way, i now have work there! woo!).

. . . is this coming Saturday, December 17th! I really hope that you can make it- it’s my final show of the year and it’s also super local at the Broad Street Ministry in Philadelphia, PA (on Broad Street, below city hall, right next to UArts). Today, i was one of the featured vendors on the website- woo woo!


seriously though- this is going to be one of the best events of the season! so many awesome vendors- and if you’re one of the first 50 people in line, you get a sweet swag tote. i contributed some handy gift tags and i know bryan from yardsale press printed his own snowflake tote bags as goodies.

finally, i will be unveiling a brand new plush that is very philly-centric- come and see what it is 🙂 the show runs from 11am to 5pm- hope to see you saturday!

Hey all-

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 🙂
