Now is the final crunch time for tomorrows Craft Republic! We got sneak previews of the swag bags last night, and ooh baby, they are fabulous! The show is being sponsored in part by Craft:, Adorn, and Metalsmith magazines, so you know that there is some fun to be had there!

I always find myself in a mad frenzy the day before, trying to make sure all the piece have hardware on them and are ready to go! It is a lot of fun doing this, but the fear of forgetting something often makes me mental! I am not really happy until I have done everything and set up the table. Then I can relax. And this show is especially great because it is inside and will be really well stocked with major talent!

I will be there with the lovely like of some of my favorite designers including Random Nicole, HannahMade, Mielle Design Studio and Amanda Lockrow, just to name a very few! I am also really excited to get to see Katy J perform. I mentioned her about a year ago, wether here or on Creative Swoon, I cant remember, but she has this awesome raspy voice that I really enjoyed. Yes indeed, tomorrow will rock! (Literally ;)

It is kind of sad how excited a haircut can make me! There is a point in my hairs growth were it can go from totally managaeble one day, to desperately needing some scissor love the next! Today, I get to go visit Brig and I am REALLY looking forward to it!

You might remember that in September I had a little mini show up at p!ay. Well, for the Holidays they are bringing back all of the Artists that have had months this year for a great little shopping boutique right there in the salon! If you are in Simi Valley, or near it, you should def. check it out! I am going to be adding my stuff today, and I believe the rest will be up by late Nov.

Thank you p!ay for supporting artists and handmade shopping for the holidays!!!

Yay Patchwork!

Hubby and I had a great time at the Patchwork Show this past weekend in Santa Ana! We met awesome people got to check out a lot of new vendors who I hadn't met before. I am so impressed with how incredible the variety and quality of vendors. Everyone really had amazing spaces and fantastic goods! Many are doing one or more of the upcoming shows that I am participating in. I cant wait to do a little shopping!

Tom worked really hard to help me get set up, and in the breakdown. He doesnt often get to come to shows (mostly because Hannah and I couldn't fit him in the car;) and it was really nice to spend the day with him, and have him experience the scene. I think he had fun!
