Gettin' Ready!

Long time no see. I've been furiously trying to get ready for my three day show at the Contemporary Crafts Market in Santa Monica California. In you're in the neighborhood, be sure to download a free pass (and be sure to notice who's photo was used in the postcard on the far right). I'd love to see you.

I finally completed some more pendants for my Specimen Container series. Some of the containers I've had for a while - waiting for the perfect specimen, and some are newly made. I'm happy with how they turned out. Hope some of the visitors to the show think they're nice too!

So, the rest of the day will be dedicated to pricing and getting my booth supplies together. I'll set up sometime tomorrow so that I only have to finalize the actual jewelry displays on Friday morning.


I'd say I was looking forward to taking a big breath on Monday, but my 8 week class at Otis starts on Wednesday night and it's sold out! Fancy that. I do have the *next* weekend off, but then there's another show at Sierra Madre Creative Arts Group the weekend after that. Oy Vey! I'll be a wreck. But thinking of some of you who do this all summer, or all year long - traveling to far off states to sell your pretty things makes me realize how good I've actually got it. I'll wish us all tons of happy customers and fun people watching. Carpe Diem!
