This and That and the Other...

The Kenton Street Fair was Sunday, I shared a booth with Bike Cozy!  It was my first outdoor fair!  Sorry I cut off some of both of our booths in the photo! 
New kitchen floor to replace the one scratched up by the cops after the burglary! Cat not included. The tape is to hold the seems in place.  It's gone and I have baseboards now too!
looks like a melted crayola box! I love it! and the kitty!

 I also received some lovely mail art from Jessica at Natures my Friend!  Thank you!!! Fun stuff for sure!!

why can't i rotate this!?









Happy pre 3 day weekend week!

Hold Your Horses!

What do you mean you're behind? Don't have enough hours in your day?  You're unemployed!!!!

Gah! Seriously! 
This post is to tell you that somehow, I've fallen behind in my chores, my goals, my posts.  You name it, and I'm behind. 

But I did get my new kitchen floor and I installed the baseboard.  Still needs painting and some filling.  I also got my van running, insurance, DEQ and registration all up to date! That will make craft fairs that much easier.  And camping!

I miss our time together here! I'll catch you up on the craziness soon!

XO!!

The Slow Boat to China?

Yes, I'm a bit slow posting my photos from Crafty Wonderland, but here they are!  I'm constantly struggling with people who don't understand that these are NOT digital copies, but each one a hand printed original.  I've removed the word "print" from most my documentation and replaced it with Linocut & Etchings.


New Booth!  Lovely fabric and "Original Art" banner thinger!

Redoing the booth set up was really fun, but took tons of time!  My living room was a disaster for a month!  I still need to come up with a better display that holds more and uses more height rather then table space.  This is a 10' wide by 5' deep booth size.

I had about 40 different designs to display, and between 2 - 6 of each edition.  
Magazine rack I found at Portland Fixtures and my little peg board shelf

Close up!

Monday Week 26

At least I think it's week 26.  It'a hard to count that many weeks. 
I honestly CAN'T believe so much time has passed.  and QUICKLY!
Spring is sort of here!  Summer is just around the corner and I can't wait for some sun sun sun! 

Looking forward to biking, gardening and all the other activities I missed last summer when I was working 40-70+ hours a week! 

The last 6 months have brought lots of different emotions for me and I'm sure there are more interesting times ahead. 

Future posts to keep an eye out for! 
Crafty Wonderland recap!
Atelier Meridian excitement!
New prints!
New bike!
and more! 

Happy May!

Speed Dating Anyone?

I've never participated in a "speed dating" event. But on Wednesday, May 18, 6:00 pm at the Design Within Reach Portland Studio I'll be participating in the I Heart Art PDX's Mixer Match, Speed Networking, Round Two -Visual Artists and Galleries.  

The short answer is there will be 20 galleries, 40 artists and we will have 2 mins with each gallery to show and talk about our work!  Yikes!  and Yay!
Have you participated in a Speed Dating event?  or an interview process that is similar?  I'd love to hear about it! 

Tomorrow is Crafty Wonderland!!!  Hope to see you there!!

Brushes down!

After a few minor changes and additions, I placed Mona in her frame today.  She makes her way to her new home tomorrow night!
