Snagged a sunny treasury tonight. Trying to beat the heat by holding very still! I've been photographing a lot of student work this year, so I'm thinking I may post some of it so you can see what my kiddies have been up to in the art room. If you are a craft junkie like me, and you have all these supplies just lying around the house, you are welcome to try some of them. So, stay tuned!

Our golden egg this week is smoobage! She's a multitalented artist from Cali with a fresh, bright style influenced by nature and the sea. What I love best here are her awesomely funky feather earrings and necklaces. Her color combinations are terrific and always thoughtfully chosen. She ensures that there's a variety of lengths, shapes, and patterns that complement one another for a dynamic whole.

I will be selling my wares at a small event at Saint James United Methodist Church this Saturday, May 9th, the Spring Fling. There will be plants, baked goods made by the church ladies (mm!), a yard sale, as well as some other crafts including jewelry, pottery, painted slates, and greeting cards. There will also be a children's area with face painting. I will be inside the fellowship hall across from the food! The event runs from 9 am 'til 2 pm, rain or shine. Find Saint James here on Google Maps. Please bring your checkbooks if you aren't carrying cash! I don't usually have time to do shows so I have no method accepting credit card payment.

This week, my Golden shout out goes to HiTree. A textile artist with a hippie soul, this lady makes adorable tree-themed items from simple felt! I recently bought a pair of oak leaf earrings from her that are just delightful. She makes impeccable soft sculpture trees, pins, and bags, with a little bit of other nature-themes thrown in. Her work is layered, yet cleanly modern and very sweet.
