Wired Holiday Fair!!!

December 13 2014 handmade fair wired cafe evansville IN

Yeah, I’m completely floored, but the fact is that this year I will be a part of this amazing experience. This art/craft show is filled to the brim with some of the best artists and crafters in the area, and I’ll be there with them. I can’t overstate how happy I am.

Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/752170168174181/

The basics, this is a big art and jewelry/craft sale on December 13th, going on from 10am to 4pm at the Wired Coffee House, RAIN OR SHINE. There’s going to be an immense amount of talent here and I will be bringing my best game, including some new art.

This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and most of all FREAKIN’ AWESOME presents for pretty much anyone in your life. The prices are always nuts too (me and a lot of my buds here practically give our art away, it’s crazy) so this is a holiday shopping event not to be missed on any level.

A Girl and her Mod Podge part 1: Rex

Yep, I made an Angel Rex tray. He didn’t stick around long, I can assure you, he was snapped up pretty quick…but in the time I shared with him, I loved him.

You might notice some black streaks or faint smudginess in the red of the tray. That’s because I used a block print of Rex as an experiment. Not surprisingly, the ink smudged! I would caution anyone against decoupaging a block print for this reason. If, like my little rex tray here, the piece still looks pretty nice with streaking, go for it. But I would not recommend the approach if you desperately want a crisp, clean-looking piece. Gritty pieces only!

A message from the Easter Jellyfish

The Easter Jellyfish would like to tell you that it hopes you all have a lovely day regardless of how you spend it!

Yeah I got bored and made this jellyfish out of my son’s craft supplies because…I am obsessed with jellyfish. In fact I want to draw lots more jellyfish, as soon as possible!!

Stay tuned for all jellyfish, ALL THE TIME!! …perhaps not that many jellyfish, but I’m definitely going to make more…

Horde of DUCT TAPE ROSES

I have more roses I made since these, but for now here’s a garden of some of my early duct tape roses. I always bring these babies with me to every show I do, so yes these will be at the Earth Day Art Crawl this Saturday April 19th as well!

When I find my new roses I’ll make an even more gargantuan gallery! And then I’ll keep making more…and more…haha! (Seriously they’re fun to make, I want to decorate my house with them)
