Art Star Booty

Here are my outstanding purchases from Art Star last weekend in Philly. In order of purchase!

A terrific paint-by-numbers plate shard turned into an attractive pendant by The Broken Plate Pendant Company. I'm going through a paint-by-numbers phase and this was just what I was looking for.

I bought my daughter a headband from the talented Valerie of Holland-Cox. She has not taken it off since its purchase so I have been unable to photograph it. You can kind of see it peeking through the back on the display.

These beauties are from my neighbor, Joanna Nealey. They look great and fulfill my need for yellow jewelry! Hand pierced and enameled. I love their length and fun bright color.

Last, but certainly not least, is this ring by Eleanor of Eleanor Jane Jewelry. Once again in yellow - my favorite childhood color is my favorite once again. This ring is bright and big and so very comfortable to wear.

Art Star Craft Bazaar Wrap Up

Art Star Craft Bazaar was last weekend, May 15 & 16, on the beautiful Philadelphia waterfront at Penn's Landing. The weather was amazing and I enjoyed brining my family up for a fun weekend. Here are some highlights.

This is Declan. His Mother purchased a mini book made from LEGO® pieces from me and he came back the next day to show me what he did with it. His creation made my day - a car made from a book! His Dad wrote this post about it.

Philadelphia has some amazing tattoo studios. I had to take a picture of this LEGO® heart tattoo and yes, she bought a book! Some other tattoo favorites were a number 2 pencil, a dot-to-dot T-Rex and my favorite, a 16th century botanical print!

These were my neighbors Eleanor and Joanna. It was their first craft show and I was very impressed with their jewelry and booth set-up. They create amazing enamel pieces in fun designs colors. I had to get a piece from each of them!

My friend Valerie, of Holland-Cox, was my neighbor on the other side. Her beautiful fabrics are inspirational. Her bags, aprons, belts and clutches are meticulously crafted.

My booth was in the perfect location - right on the Delaware River near the Art Star booth. Mornings there was a rush of activity from the early birds there at opening to receive free tote bags and goodies.
