resin, resin all day long… and a GIVEAWAY!



So much resining to do to make up for lost time while I had the flu! It’s all the more difficult being stuck in the basement with a mask on my face when the weather is as beautiful as it is today.  Oh well, it must be done- Clover Market is in one week (from tomorrow, officially) and there’s much to do!  These joeys will become fun little stud earrings when I’m done with them.


Speaking of Clover, did you know there’s a cool giveaway going on right now?!  Check out the rules and how to enter here to win a free super soft Clover T-shirt and market tote bag.  Also, you get to pick your favorite vendor to attend one of the market’s for FREE (hint, hint)! Make sure you’ve shared and posted your comment – good luck!

Hope I see you on April 14th…



welcome, spring.


Yes, it’s officially spring but we’re still getting four inches of snow today in bucks county, pa. In a way, it’s working for me because there’s no sunny, spring-like weather distractions.  March has been tough because the flu brought me down a few weeks ago, so there’s lots of catching up to do in order to be ready for the deluge of spring shows that begin mid-april.


Clover Market with kick off the season on april 14th in ardmore, pa.  I can hardly wait, it’s always an amazing event and there’s a great new slew of artists and vendors as well as old favorites retuning for the season.  Check out the pinterest board of the spring sellers here.


If you’ve not already subscribed to be on my mailing list, make sure you do so!  i’ll be sending out my newsletter in early april with my complete spring schedule.  Still waiting to hear from a few shows, but SO many great ones already booked!

Hope to see you soon…

winter market tomorrow!


I’m so excited to be participating in Clover Market‘s first wintry offering – ‘Winter Market’ at the 23rd street Armory in Philly.  Yes, it’s tomorrow! Along with Clover’s usual group of fantastically curated sellers and makers there’s also food trucks and a selection of diy workshops.
