Printing New Designs! Don’t Swim With Toxic People and MORE:

Don't Swim With Toxic People - by Woodie Anderson

Here’s a look at the sketch for one of my favorite new designs: Don’t swim with toxic people – based on phrase that first came to my mind last fall while dealing with some challenges in my personal and professional life. Back then I jotted it down in my notebook, and I find myself coming back to these words again and again. I’m happy to have turned that thought into a image to help drive home what it means to me.

I’ll have this design along with several other new ones printed and ready to go this Friday and Saturday at the Krankies Craft Fair. If you’re in Winston this weekend stop by, say “Hi!” and find lots of great handmade gifts for the ones you love this holiday season.

My first holiday market of 2013 was this past Sunday. Whew! It’s always a hectic time. Big, big love to all the wonderful people who stopped by my booth; supporting you local artists and makers makes a real difference. Thank you!

I have two more markets this month: Winston’s Krankies Craft Fair (Fri., Dec. 13th, 5-10 pm & Sat., Dec. 14th, 9 am-3 pm) and  Hoots Flea Market (Sat., Dec. 21; 11 am – 4:30 pm) and I’d love to see you there. I’m working on some new card/patch designs and at least one more hand print design for hand cloths, which were a big hit at Hand to Hand.
