Bracelet :(((

Unfortunately, someone ripped off my charm bracelet I had made at the Farmer's Market on Wednesday! I was shocked for a whole day! After shock came anger, and now I'm just sorta *regular* again. And smarter. My whole attitude when selling is to leave people alone as much as possible and not be "on" them when they look, but I think I'm going to have to re-think that a bit! I just don't understand how someone can do something like that.... every time they put it on how can they not think of how rotten they are!!! UGH!

Check it out!

My owl art pendant has been featured on the Art Bead Scene (Friday, June 27)! I'm honored!!! I love the beads they chose... so cool!

I'm having so much fun selling my stuff at the Farmer's Market here in Green Bay every Wednesday. That best part is seeing all the people. I've met some really great people, both vendors and customers.

This weekend I'm hoping to work on some more of my new "soft sculpture thingies". Not quite sure what to call them? They are a bit of everything: acrylic painting, sculpture, textiles, clay, wire, nails, wood! Anyone have a good name for these???

Have a great weekend,

First, thanks everyone for such nice comments on my little farmer's market booth! I so much appreciate it!

The earring "house" is very functional, but I found that people couldn't see the earrings well and sorta didn't notice them enough, so I put all the earring pairs on white cardstock and hang them on the wire on those. Much better!

It is such a beautiful day here in Wisconsin! The bottom part of our state is flooded right now though and we are all feeling just terrible for everyone there. :((( I just can't imagine how horrible it would be to lose your home.

Last night I got a new idea in my head. I love making my little bird sculptures with the wire legs. I thought I could make a cute stuffed muslin girl holding a cat with those same skinny wire legs... maybe subconsciously I want SKINNY LEGS! Om... OK... CONSCIOUSLY THEN! Anyway, it turned out so cute! I added two crows and put it all on an old vintage block I found at a really neat shop here in De Pere (right next to Green Bay).

Here's the girl that I stuffed and painted, before her legs and bird on top of her head are attached. :) She lays next to the little pattern I drew and used to cut the muslin out.

Here she is on my messy table. I am not the organized artist when I work... things are everywhere and I do not stop to tidy up! :)

And here she is with her two crow friends (one on her head and one standing next to her). NOT the greatest pic!

Thanks for taking a peek! I will post her in my etsy shop tonight, if all goes well! Have a great night everyone!!!

ON BROADWAY Farmer's Market

I decided to do the On Broadway show here in Green Bay this summer. It is every Wednesday and runs from June 4th through September. The first show was Wednesday and it was a blast! I love being out and doing something DIFFERENT. There was supposed to be rain all night, but it never happened. I still had my husband go to Sam's and get me an EZ up canopy. Every other vendor had one and I knew I would need it eventually. So we put it up about an hour into the show -- funny!!! The other vendors around me were so helpful. The best part was I got to meet a fellow etsian! Laura, from littleorangekitchen!!! What an awesome girl! I'm definately getting one of her gorgeous wallets! They are unbelievable! The craftsmanship is absolutely perfect!!!

Above you will see my very plain little booth. I took a huge easel that I got from my dad and attached a bunch of wooden pegs to it, painted it, and voila! A pendant display! On the table are magnets, barrettes, rings, sale pendants, pocket mirrors, a couple paintings and earrings. The earrings are on the wooden house and are hanging on curly wire I strung across and put on an easel.


Sale through Sunday at NOON!

I'm having a sale in my etsy shop! Buy two pendants, get the third FREE! Hurry, ends Sunday at noon CST!

I had my first outdoor show on Wednesday. How fun! I will post pictures of my little booth in the next couple days.
