Plans & Schemes

Well I'm heading today to the beautiful town of Mendocino for the Mendocino Art Center Summer Craft Fair. Woo! I love going there. So pretty and the people are so cool. I think I have a couple photos from last year... hm where are they?

August is looking a little lean on the festival schedule for me... I might get back to the Mendo coast for Casparfest. We'll see, but I have a few other irons in the fire of course.

I still have goods for sale at Schatzi's Hidden Treasures in the mall. I'll be beefing up my display when I get back next week. If you haven't checked it out you should. Pretty neat importy store full of interesting stuff.

I also need to get my web site updated, duh. How long have I been saying that? Well I got a new camera last fall and now have some much better pics I can put up. I still want to get some sort of photo shoot lined up with models, as in real people. And I'll be going back online selling on the wonderful etsy.com. Possibly some ebay stuff as well... but there have been lots of weird things going on there so who knows.

Oh and I'm starting to get the itch for non-dyeing crafts. I do other things too you know, or I did before I started my little biz. I'm thinking it's about time to start making my own beads. I did a couple semesters of glassblowing in college... with the big furnaces and all. Loved it and I always wanted to learn the smaller scale stuff so I could make beads. Well my dear friend Kevin happens to teach classes at the Fire Arts Center in Arcata. So I can certainly hook this up. Oh I need some handblown bead jewelry in my booth. Yessss!

But for today, I'm on the road. See ya!
