it's a rainy day in la la land. I'm off to the bust craftacular tomorrow and I hope the rain doesn't keep the craft loving folks away. but tomorrow I am happy to say that a group show that I'm in also opens. It's the DONA show at espai cromatic gallery in spain. I wish I could go to the show. I sent one of my bird girls to hangout with all the other women inspired artwork from artists around the world.

it's time for the Bust Holiday Craftacular in Los Angeles. I'll be here and I hope you will too. and while you're there you can donate to the LA Regional Food Bank. Just bring a canned and non-pershable food and drop it in their bin by the entrance. Come support handmade!

On August 7th, Red Thread Studio, a local studio/craft space in Virginia was engulfed in flames. "Save the Thread" is dedicated to revitalizing the space and helping owner Angelia back on her feet. The goal is to raise $3000 to help Angelia rebuild her studio. It's so important to do what we can to help each other. There are a few donation tiers, offering free handmade goods from some of my favorite artists for any $5+ donation they receive. Just think something cool for $5 and helping support the handmade community. You can't beat that. So go there NOW. and spread the word.

there is such a special place in my heart for kid art. i find it always so inspiring. this drawing is by my four year old niece. she claims that it isn't me... although she kept looking at me while she was drawing it. she said it's not me because i don't only have two teeth. i love that she has a pine cone in one hand.
