Next Chances to see Beadware

If you missed the show/sale this past weekend - bummer for you! We had a great time, good food, beautiful music and lots of shopping! I spaced out taking pictures on Friday but will get some from Saturday posted on my Beadware facebook fan page this week. While the other artists wares are packed up and gone, my things will be unpacked for a few more days, so just give a call if you want to pop in for some shopping.

Beadware will be out and about in May - you can find me at Rodstol Lane Farm's Southworth Art & Garden Fair on May 8th. Should be a very fun time. And I will be back at the Fremont Sunday Market on May 2, 9, and 23rd.

I will be working on some new items specifically for these shows so stay tuned for sneek peaks!

More Artists at the Show!

The last three artists participating in my Spring Art Show & Sale this weekend are Lesley, Toni and Laurel. Lesley began doing watercolors just a few years ago. She has not yet parted with any of her originals, but she is sharing her work via printed notecards. In this day of emails and tweets a hand written card is a nice surprise! 

Toni and Laurel combine their talents to perform wonderful Renaissance music using a variety of wind and string instruments. They will be doing live performances during the sale on Friday from 5 to 7pm and Saturday noon to 2pm. 

Come to visit, to hear music, to see (and buy!) wonderful artwork. Hope you can join us in this celebration of spring!

Another of Friday's Artists

Noelle has been taking amazing pictures for a number of years. Eagles from her deck, orcas from her boat, scenery from her many travels. She'll have a variety for you to choose from, matted and framed. Stop in at our Spring Art Show and Sale this Friday and Saturday and take a look!

Pearls at Fremont?

Had a fun day at the Fremont Sunday market yesterday. Never boring thanks to fantastic people and dog watching! Just as we were getting ready to close up shop for the day at 5pm a woman rushed in looking for a gift for her mother-in-law. Pearls fit the bill. My two biggest sales so far at Fremont have been pearls - I would have never predicted that. Two lessons learned - never close up early and you never know what will sell at a particular place so bring a variety! (These have since sold.)

Postcards in the Mail Today

I am printing out labels this morning to put on the mailing  inviting folks to my spring show and sale (April 23-24). Linda helped me turn my usual flier in a more affordable-to-mail postcard! I do a combination of snail-mail and email. The email version I will design today and send out early next week.

This show will feature photography, pottery, watercolors, jewelry and live music! There are so many great artists working in this area. I just met a woman last week who makes beautiful basketry. I wish my house was big enough to invite a few more artists to the show. I have been thinking about working to organize a local show in a place big enough to house many artists. I just may have to act on that! 

Watch your mail-boxes and in-boxes for your invitation!
