What's going on here?

Writing about all the things I love.

I asked Santa for an art museum

Holidays are crazy things. Sometimes I feel like we don’t really get a chance to slow down between Halloween and New Years! I'm lucky enough (though some would say the opposite) that I have a small family, and we like to keep things fairly low-key for the holidays. It...

The Difference a Day Makes

Last week I did something I had never done before - two art fairs in two days. On Saturday, I found myself in Hartford for their holiday craft fair, and on Sunday I went to Brookfield for theirs. Beyond just doing two fairs in two days, I was doing it on my own as my...

The Great Indoors

It's getting to be about that time that I finally close my windows for the season. There are frost warnings now at night, and I've heard of people turning their heat on already. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons, and I'm forever grateful that we actually get...

New Things in July!

Things I love about my family: the fact that we're all creative in our own way. My mom sews, I do my myriad craziness, and my dad is a household wizard. He's been helping me so much with my ongoing quest to be an art seller at outdoor fairs, and he also helps me with...

My first (outdoor) fair!

I admit that I've been sitting on making this post for a week because after the previous few weeks of convention and fair prep, I just wanted to not deal with writing and posting. But here we go! My first outdoor art fair! My tent! Set up for the fair started around...

Housekeeping!

Some changes are going on here on the back end of things! They're subtle on the site itself, but they're changes I hope will make it even better, and things I've been wanting to do for a while. I'm STILL working on getting those galleries up and running, but if you...

New things, new excitement

It is Friday, May 24th, and tomorrow is my first outdoor art festival. Tonight is going to be filled with preparations, putting all my supplies together, last-minute card prints, and a general flurry of activity. This past week has been filled with thoughts about the...

Like vs Love (aka Priorities)

Confession time: I like costumes. All types of costumes, really. Theater, historical, Halloween (though I have issue with the Halloween costume industry, but that’s another post entirely). I like dressing up. In the right situations, I enjoy being someone else for the...

My Kingdom for a Tent?

One of the last things you want to do when it’s a blustery day in the mid-40s is to go outside and set up a 10x10 foot canopy tent. And yet... And yet that’s what I found myself doing several weekends ago. A while back, shortly after my birthday, I took the birthday...

Saga of a Phone

In the first half of the first decade of this particular millennium (translation: the early- to mid-2000s), people were acquiring a piece of technology that I was shunning: The Cell Phone. I didn’t want one. I didn’t see the use for one. I was living at home, and...

An Anniversary!

The Art Guild of Menomonee Falls has a gallery downtown in the village, and this month they're celebrating their 1 year anniversary! While I'm not one of the artists that has their work up in the gallery, all members of the guild were invited to put something into a...

Life in Threes

Threes are sort of a big deal for me. You know... the number three? I’m not quite as obsessed with threes as a certain musician, and so it’s something I don’t pay attention to all the time, but sometimes there are those things that keep popping up in your life and you...
