Here’s a link to the Grain Belt Bottling House, where the show will take place. redshoes26 will be there with the other awesome vendors from 10am – 5pm. I’ll have with me all kinds of State Icons, new boxed card sets, and mini State Icon ornaments.

There’s free parking, and the event is free to attend. And there will be food trucks! Food trucks!

Bring a friend and come to Northeast Minneapolis!


This weekend : Craft’za

It’s the holiday show season! How do I know? Because I’m updating my blog with show info every week, and my calendar has scribbled show info written on every weekend “block” in my calendar this month and most next month, too! It’s exciting, and I’m looking forward to meeting people, showing my new work, and hobnobbing with my fellow creative types.

This Saturday, I’ll be at Craft’za, the second annual craft fair put on by the folks behind Craftstravaganza. This year’s Craft’za event is taking place at the Grain Belt Bottling House in Northeast Minneapolis. I’ll have State Icons, mini State Icon Ornaments, larger matted prints, new boxed greeting cards, zippered pouches, and hopefully a few other brand new items that are in the works! I’m looking forward to debuting the new work, and my fingers are crossed that this will be the event at which I can do that….

This weekend : Craft’za

Eek! I’m so late in posting this, but you still have a bit of time to plan for it, eh? I mean, you probably keep weekends free this time of year, just to hit up art shows to do your holiday shopping, right? Since you mostly buy your gifts locally, and as often as possible, handmade, right? I thought so!

This Saturday, Nov. 17, find me at Craft’za, the new holiday show brought to you by the planners behind the popular summer show, Craftstravaganza. Craft’za is from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at The Soap Factory in Minneapolis. There’s free parking, and the show is free to attend, too.

I’m looking forward to this show, and hope you are, too. There will be more than 70 cool vendors, so it’ll be worth your time to make a stop. See you there!
