Out on the Town

I am excited to announce that I'll be featuring my work at two BIG craft shows in the next two weeks - you should definitely come hang out!

Crafty Bastards is Sunday, September 28th, 10A.M. - 5 P.M. at 18th and Wyoming Avenues NW. My booth is number 142.  This is a juried show and I am thrilled to be a part of it!

On Saturday, October 4th, I will be at my neighborhood Art on the Avenue show - really just blocks from my house! I am looking forward to seeing my whole Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria come out for the festivities. My booth is 112W - across from the Cheestique!  Here is a map of the venue.  Check back soon for pictures and reviews of these two super-fun events!

In the news!

I am very excited about several new and exciting things in my life. First of all, I met a fabulous photographer at St. Elmo's for coffee. She wanted to interview me for a Creative Spotlight she's starting. Here's the feature on her blog!

She works magic with that camera.

Ballistic Nylon Books

I found this outrageous bookcloth made out of ballistic nylon.  That's right the stuff your messenger bag is made out of is now available for your books.  It is sturdy and bit stiff but fun to work with although a little tricky to turn in at the corners.  The effect is great and I am sure these calendar/planners will hold up to a whole year of abuse in someone's backpack, purse or messenger bag.

Cards, Cards, Cards

I found a great zoology book from 1875 while on vacation in Maine this summer.  It inspired me to make Gocco printed cards using some of the cooler sea creature illustrations.  Here are the results!  I think the horseshoe crab is my favorite.
