Saturday, December 7, is the big, fun, fabulous White Rock Local Market Holiday Extravaganza. I am looking forward to the music, food, arts & crafts and to seeing your smiling faces in my booth filled with all my critter creations.
The day after the day after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday and I’ll be joining a whole bunch of cool people in the Dallas Design District for a holiday shopping extravaganza. If you live in Dallas or will be here that weekend, come on by and stop in my booth. Hope to see all your smiling faces there.
The dachshund shaped pillows are starting to slip into my shop. Keep checking, you never know when another one will slip in.
I have been branching out lately, creating new work in a new to me media. I made a batch of photo necklaces utilizing my photos of the natural world around our house and the photos I shoot of my critter creations. I sold a slew of them to co-workers at a small craft fair we had recently and I’m going to haul the rest of them to the Design District Market over Thanksgiving weekend and what ever is left will be with me the following weekend at the White Rock Local Market big holiday shindig. I’m not listing these necklaces in my Etsy shop, so if you’re interested in one, drop me a line or come by either event. I like the way these look when wearing them, I just don’t know that I enjoy the process of creating these so I would definitely call this a limited production. You never know until you try, do you?
I love audio books. I love them on CD. I love them downloaded to my computer. I love that my library has both and in pretty vast quantities. While I sew, draw, crochet or any other number of creative endeavors, I like to be read to. I enjoy it almost more than listening to music while I create. Sometimes I listen to musicians tell their life story and that almost always includes musical snippets.
Right now I am listening to Graham Nash tell me his life story, Wild Tales. It is truly interesting and he is as amusing a reader as he is fine a singer/songwriter. When he mentions a song, he sings it to you acapella. Just like he’s singing in your ear. Just for you.
If you are a Hollies fan, a CSNY fan, a Joni Mitchell fan or just a fan of music in general, you’ll enjoy this. As long as you don’t mind the f-word being used liberally. He does like to use that profane language. Doesn’t bother me, but some may take offense. Be warned. Or not. I’m loving every listen of it.
The Plush Team is really excited to be a part of the first ever Mini-Maker Faire taking place in Cincinnati, Ohio
next this weekend. On October 19th from noon until 10pm, the Team will have a booth in beautiful Washington Park.
We will have plush available to purchase from a bunch of our members from around the globe, as well as having demos and classes throughout the day. The Team will also have a small plush art gallery in the booth, as well as members of the Team working on their own projects as “artists-in-residence.” This is the Plush Team’s second time doing a Maker Faire event, and we expect the one in Cincinnati to be just as great an experience as the first one in San Mateo was in 2010. To see photos from the last Plush Team booth at a Maker Faire, click here.
There will be fun for all ages in Cincinnati next weekend, with things like power tool drag racing, robots battling, food trucks, bands performing, and more!
If you are in the Cincinnati or surrounding area, come on out next weekend and say hello to us!
