I’ve been playing around with watercolors the last few weeks to loosen up. It’s nice to have some paper set up and ready for me to add another layer whenever I walk by and have a whim. These are a few cards I’ve made so far by building up layers of drawing, glue and watercolor.
Last week I lead a short Taste of Art class at The Sawtooth School. As always, it was fun exploring the medium of screen printing with newbies. Everyone was great and we made some really fun work in just two hours. If you’d like to get in on the action and you’re local to Winston registration is now open for this Fall’s Experimental Screen Printing class. Sign up, let’s play!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! I’ll check back in soon with more updates! Here’s another snap of my doodling around with markers, making mini-paintings for greeting cards. I just love how much each one of these little pieces change over the course of the process.

Pick up local-made gifts for your loved ones and have a great time while you shop! Food trucks, live music, lots of great vendors and you can even grab a brew, too. The weather is going to be perfect, so come on down. I’ll have a table with handprinted stuffs, including these handprint hand cloths, hot off the press–get 5 for just $20 bucks! Plus, I’ll have onesies, kitchen towels, paper goods and more. So stop by and say hi!
Sneak peek of what I’ll have available at Krankies Craft Fair: Handmade goods including – Hand cloths, printed cards (3 new designs!), kitchen towels, prints on paper, onesies, and patches! FRIDAY from 5pm-10pm and SATURDAY, December 14th from 9am-2pm at Krankies Coffee.
This is my favorite fair of the holiday season, always so many great gifts to choose from (and I always find some things I, ahem, need for myself, too). Stop by, grab a beer or some coffee and say HI!
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.
There are always such creative and unique gifts to be found at these markets. I did a little shopping of my own, Sunday. Here’s a run-down of my loot: superSHEro coin purse, crayon bag – Yarelie J Designs; patch and cards by death by ink; books from Unicorn Press (my full set of NRB covers, thanks Terry!); small bird bowls – Earthworks by molly lithgo
It’s that time of the year! Busy, busy, busy designing and printing to prepare for the holidays. NEW to the list are hand cloths – 18″ x 20″ flour sack towels – great for counter clean up, napkins or dusting. AND back by popular demand: Queen of Hearts and Sunny Side flour sack towels. PLUS new note cards, onesies and more…
If you’d like to give handmade and support local artists and craft folk in this area, check out the following markets:
This is the book I created book cloth for this past month, and it has been interesting to see how each artist interpreted the spirit of Terry’s words. In all there are FIVE covers (show above) designed by local artists: Tristin Miller, Chuck Johnson, Matthew Brinkley and yours truly; published by Unicorn Press. Come by to hear Terry speak and check out these books/art objects in person, I’d love to see you there!
