It's that time of year again....

Are you ready?

This year, you will find me just down the street from MECA at the 2nd annual Handmade Brigade. Sale runs for 2 days - during First Friday Dec 2 from 5-10 pm and Saturday Dec 3 from 11-5
There are 2 entrances, as the building runs straight through 510 Congress / 77 Free St. Come shop for some handmade wares while enjoying some cookies and apple cider.

The following weekend, you will find me at this year's Picnic Holiday Sale on Sunday, Dec. 11th from 11-6. This year, it is in a new, much bigger location at the Portland Company Complex at 58 Fore St. There will be tons of great handmade and vintage items as well as food and a friendly, fuzzy yeti to have your picture taken with! This is a holiday event not to be missed!

Winter 2011

Winter is a time to catch up on all of those things that continue to be put off the rest of the year.
I have been relaxing, mending the pile of clothing that has accumulated in my studio and getting around to some personal projects that I finally have the time for. (as in giving new life to my childhood E.T. plush!)
Winter is also the time to think about the coming year - this is when most of it is given shape. Once the spring comes, life becomes hectic and time for thinking becomes time for making.
Many decisions have to be made concerning festivals, pricing, venues and new products.
I have decided to avoid costly out of state craft fairs this year and focus my limited resources of time and money on more lucrative and local projects. You never know what the new year will bring.
