This weekend : High-end brands, low-end prices

You’re coming to this event this weekend, right? The Spring Clearance & Sample Sale at the Northrup King Building in NE Minneapolis is going to be such a great time! And there will be lots of bargains—I’m retiring several greeting cards from my line in order to make room for new designs, so the retiring card prices will be slashed.

Check out these style boards for the event, created by the lovely ladies of Post-. The boards give you a great idea of what to expect at this two-day sale!

April 27-29 – Next up is the Saint Paul Art Crawl, and I will show my mixed-media shadowboxes as a guest artist at the AZ Gallery in the Northern Warehouse Building. Also see gallery members D.C. Ice, Jen Hanlon Ash, and many more.

May 12 – Yes! I finally made it into Craftstravaganza! The event, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., is taking place in *two* buildings this year, so there’s room for even more vendors than usual. I’m so excited to do this show, with the likes of artists such as Larissa Loden, The Elixery, Zeichen Press, Ododo Originals, Aromi, Adam Turman, Megan Moore, Cindy Lindgren, painted fish studio, Crafterall, and so many more.

Let me know if you have questions about any of these events. I hope to see you at one or all!


Be Mine … Forever

On a crisp Saturday mid-afternoon in late January, a group of oh-so-talented creatives met in the backyard gardens of a rural home in Rosemount, Minnesota, and put together one of the coolest photo shoots ever. (Quite literally…by the end of five-hour shoot I had mild hypothermia. But it was worth it!)

Elizabeth Anne Weddings and Jeff Loves Jessica dreamed up the proposal shoot, which was inspired by winter and Valentine’s Day. They coordinated with redshoes26 design for the Valentine’s themed stationery, Ashley Fox Designs for stunning floral, Lime Canary Vintage Rentals for beautiful props and furnishings, Cocoa & Fig for sweet treats, and Julie Swenson for gorgeous hair and makeup. The backdrop was the backyard and pond of Cindyrella Wedding Garden.

Take a peek at all of the images, shot by Jeff Loves Jessica, which were featured last month on The Wedding Chicks blog.

I find the color palette chosen by Jessica (of Jeff Loves Jessica) to be so stunning. It was very lovely to work with. What’s your favorite part of the photo shoot?
