Love is in the (cold) air

Come celebrate the season of love! The Artist Mercantile in St. Paul is throwing a pre-Valentine’s Day event in February. The Jewelry Trunk Show and Soirée takes place on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7–8.

On Friday from 11am–1pm, take in a lunchtime jewelry trunk show, and while you’re there enjoy samples of fabulous chocolate truffles. The mother-daughter team of DeDesigns Jewelry will show their vintage-inspired collection, which is made from materials such as gold filigree, silver, crystals, and rhinestones.

On Saturday from 7–9pm, you can again find the jewelry of DeDesigns and chocolate, plus you can sample some wine. The evening will also highlight my mixed-media shadowboxes, as well as the work of Sarah Wash, who works in acrylic, pencil, watercolor, and Mod Podge. Both my and Sarah’s collage work will be up at Artist Mercantile through March 8.

Spread the word and come share the love!

This weekend : Renegade Craft Fair – Austin

Renegade Craft Fair is almost here! A show I look forward to because A) it’s super fun, B) I’m successful in it, and C) it’s in Austin, TX, baby!

Renegade Craft Fair Austin

I’ve been to Austin twice now, both for this show (once in the winter, once in the summer), and I just love it. I’ll be traveling down with two other artists who will be participating in the fair, Larissa Loden and Michelle Brusegaard. Larissa and I are sharing a booth at the event, which takes place at the Palmer Events Center. So you can find us together. And Michelle is just right across the aisle from us. A crafter’s dream—to participate in a fun show and be near fun pals.

Renegade Craft Fair
Saturday, Nov. 30 & Sunday, Dec. 1
11am – 6pm both days
Palmer Events Center

See you there!
