I have been working on many different promos for the June/July issue of The Sampler. Giant Ant pins for your picnic lunch, nature inspired trinket boxes, pink apple pendants ripe for summer, a cherry blossom bracelet, and some make your own Hoots kits.
I also just recently finished a new Modern Geisha painting. This time it is 8X8 and the sides are accented with black and white polkadot ribbon to match her kimono.
I am happy to announce that one of my photos was selected to be featured on a flyer !Handmade Detroit featured a contest in which you had to snap a creative photo with their famous “Mitten Pin” in it. I’m not sure which photo they picked (I submitted four), but Stephanie of Handmade Detroit wrote, “Your
entry was inspired and wonderful”. This one was my personal favorite:
For winning, besides having my photo plastered all over Detroit for the craft fair, I also will get a tee shirt and a box of other crafty goodies! Yay! I have applied for the Detroit Urban Craft Fair this year, which is held at the Majestic Theater in D-Town. I’m anxiously waiting a few more weeks to find out if I was accepted.
Lastly, I want to thank those of you who emailed me pictures of the Hoots that you made!
