Folk Art Show

The Folk Art show at Fearrington Village was amazing! 
I want to share with you some pictures of the great work that I saw. I was like a kid in a candy store, walking around with my mouth hanging open. I was so inspired when I left I have been drawing and painting non stop!
Well, I will just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Have a great week!

Stephen Zeh - Basketmaker

Good Day People!

I have a link that you just have to check out! 

I am stunned by the perfection of Stephen Zeh's work. 
I love acorns and for a while I was looking for the perfect acorn necklace.
I have finally found the perfect acorn necklace.

I'm speechless.

 I did my first craft show of the year today in Pittsboro, NC. On the first sunday of every month from 12 noon to 4 they have a street fair. It's all handmade crafts by local artists.
It was beautiful today with temps up in the 80's.
I also had some friends to sit next to this time. It's amazing how much more fun a show can be when you have friends to chat with.
A big thank you to all my customers for supporting handmade local crafts.

Necklace Photoshoot

Hello There!
Its been almost a year since I've posted anything. Sorry about that. 
After my posting last year I got engaged and then married.
I made a ton of crafts for the wedding but I was so busy I didn't post any pictures at all. I also moved out of my wonderful house back into an apartment. The economy has been hard on me as well as everyone else.  For my wedding I made some great candles in punch cups, some paper boxes with candy inside as well as my own veil.
My veil was my favorite thing out of the entire wedding. I attached the wine colored ribbon with invisible thread. Wow, If you've ever used invisible thread, you know my pain. I felt blind for the first time in my life. I love the way it turned out though. Too bad I only get to wear it once.
Have a great week!

Four Leaf Clovers

Hi there everybody!

Just a quick update.

As most of you know, I am one of those people that find four leaf clovers all the time. I don't have to be looking. I guess I can just recognize a difference in the patterns easier than most.
I find them to be lucky because the artistic side of my brain believes in magical things.
I know, I know, the analytical side of my brain does know that four leaf clovers are just a genetic mutation in the plant. Give me my fantasies people!
Anyway, as you see above, I will be making the ones I find this summer into pendants.
I should have them up on my Etsy shop in about a month or so.

Today I will be at the First Sunday Craft Fair in Pittsboro, NC again.
Would love to see you like always!

This grew in three days.

The Haw River Festival

Good Day Everyone!

On Saturday May 9th I will be down by the river at the Haw River Festival!

I have attached a link below.
They are going to have several bands and a bunch of activities for kids too.
I am going to be there selling my necklaces but I'm really going just to get out of the house and spend a nice day listening to local music and chilling out by the river.

Hope to see you there!
The entry fee is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for kids. It's just a suggested donation.
The money goes to help protect the Haw River and Jordan Lake (North Carolina).

As always, have a great weekend!
