not much going on

Hey there party people. Sorry I haven't written much lately - I was on a roll for a while and there was so much to talk about! Crazy stuff has been keeping me busy the past few weeks, but not really anything worth sharing with the world, you know? In a nutshell...

I went down to the Beehive in Atlanta again and set up my display, which was so fun! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera so I can't share a photo of it with you. :( I sold a piece within 24 hours, so I'm off to a good start there.

January was a slow month in Chicago at Renegade Handmade, however. Where are you jewelry lovin' people in Chicago? Go to Renegade Handmade on W. Division St. and get shopping!!! I have also been toying with the idea of applying to the Renegade show in New York City, which would be fabulous to be a part of, not to mention doing such a cool craft show in New York (Brooklyn, specifically). Maybe a stop in Philly on the way would be in order to visit my long time friend Amy? I think so.

I got rejected from the American Artisan show here in Nashville, but that wasn't a really big surprise. I also got denied from the Decatur Arts show in Atlanta. Wah wah.

I got accepted to the Steppin' Out Blacksburg VA show in August, which is a fun show near my in-laws that I did last year so that means.... spending time with baby girl Ella and her big brother Jackson! Yay! Here's a picture of Jackson with his Tonka truck:


So that's it. I'm just trucking along, filling my website and wholesale orders, tinkering with my etsy shop and playing with side projects. I did get some much needed girlie time yesterday when I got coffee, shopping, and sushi in with Amy F, then I had a couple of drinks with Lyndi. My brain was spinning last night with all the wonderful chit chat of the day swirling in my head! Maybe I could join a sewing circle, just for the pure girl power camaraderie of it all but unfortunately I'm not really interested in needlepoint... I just need Beth Howard to sew for me and I'll sit and watch and together we'll chat. I wonder if she'll agree to that...

I have thought about trying for beehive coop - I was thinking you had to live in Atlanta, guess not? IT seems like such an awesome place. And how does renegade work - do you have to do the art shows to be on their consignment site? XOXO

I think about 85% of their vendors live in the Atlanta area, but I'm in the lucky 15% that don't. You should check out their website - there is a form to fill out if you are interested in being a vendor. Renegade is open to any indie business, and it is on consignment. All you have to do is fill out a form on their website, too. They both make it easy and painless - yay!

Thanks so much! Hey did you hear that Chattanooga Market isn't coming back this year - after 7 years....so sad! I knew you had done it and would want to know!
