Here's where I'll be all weekend:
[I don't think Beth Ditto is actually emceeing anymore, since they've got someone else listed on the site now.]
If you're local, come by & check it out -- there's going to be lots of great crafty talent at the show. I'll be there with glitter dot jewelry & penguin (plus others) shirts (even a few in grown-up sizes), glittery letters & cards, & (
lord willing & the creek don't rise, assuming the resin cures in time) a whole bunch of sparkly bobby pins.
Even with the scheduling craziness of this week (I am so glad the snow is gone), I managed to get a big batch of rings + a few new pendants made:
I think my two favorites in this batch are the lilac/fuchsia (R row, 2nd back) & the olive/sushi* (L row, 2nd back). In the middle of working on these I had what might be a great idea for a new little resin thingy (isn't that always the way, you get a great new idea that you're dying to try out right when you're in the middle of a pressing deadline?), but I managed to forge ahead & get the job done.
Today on my way home from buying a bigger table for this weekend, I stopped at Kmart because it was right next to the office supply store I'd been to & because I honestly did need a little mirror to take to the show, but believe you me there was a spring in my step because that meant I had legit excuses to see the Martha holiday deco, & I was not disappointed. I know Tord has been all the rage on the blogs, & those paper cutouts + their general aesthetic are lovely indeed (& it's not like I don't flip over photos of Amy's garland + red deer or Stephanie's little red button wreath, don't get me wrong), but this year Martha gets me where I live. Oh, the glitter! I just love how sparkly everything is this time of year.
*it's the greeny black nori color I mixed for my sushi card design.
