Photographs and Memories…

Jim Croce sang about it…and I suppose you could call me a  memory hoarder.

Dried Gerber Daisies

Suggestions for dried Gerber daisies?  I’d be okay just salvaging one, but they’ve sat on my desk for nearly a year (362 days to be exact) with no real inspiration coming to mind.

My brain is pure mush.  The onset of Spring, brings the tourists back full force, and  Nick and I will be setting up this weekend at the Savannah Market Bazaar. I’m excited to test the waters there again, but golly gee, these shows are a lot of work.  I’m currently printing, labeling, mounting, and bagging prints like mad.  (please dear printer do not run out of ink)   I have boxes and boxes of cards to package and tie little black bows around…table clothes need ironing and so many little details I’ve yet to account for.  It’s madness I tell you!  Some other fabulous artistas to look for this weekend…jewelry maven and roller derby queen, Kelly, and the multi-talented, always delightful Robin Lynne! Hope to see you there!

We need your vote!

December 22, 2008

A few years back, Nick and I had a pumpkin carving contest.  These were pre-blog days, and the judging was far from anonymous.  We simply emailed all our family and friends and asked them to cast a vote.  I suffered a bitter defeat that Halloween, and it has haunted me ever since.  So when Nick challenged me to a gingerbread house competition, how could I resist?

Here’s how it works…Take a look at the photos below…(in an effort to be fair, we won’t tell you whose is whose)…note that one house has blue windows while the other has yellow.  Then, cast your totally anonymous vote below for your favorite.  The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.

Tis the season!

For scattered blog posts, shop shop shopping, and the best arts and crafts projects of the year.  I spent some time with my little apprentices this past weekend, and they conjured up some imaginative garland for their holiday decor.

Thanks for all your hard work girls!

Bazaar recap…

November 9, 2008

The Market Bazaar was great fun.  Thanks to all of you who stopped by my tent,  picked up cards, bought a print or two, or just made conversation.   I had the opportunity to meet some super-fabulous artists, and it was especially great to finally meet Sarah and Kelly in person.  Special thanks to Nick for helping me all day…I could not have done it without you!  Thanks Marvin for letting me sit in the drivers seat of the fire truck…so cool!  Oh yeah, and thanks to Miriam and Jake for hosting an awesome event.  I think what you are doing for the community is really fantastic!  I must say though, that the real icing on the cake for me was selling Granny J’s Jello.  It happens to be one of my favorite prints, and I think it found the perfect home!  So in the spirit of Jello and all things fun.  Here’s your first peek at a complete Red Thing…
