Small Business Saturday November 24

Small Business Saturday is coming around again, and I have delivered ornaments to a few Chicagoland places. It is always lovely to have my ornaments in various retail locations so you can shop even when i don’t have an art fair. Before their trip to Show of Hands I delivered new earrings to Sacred Art […]

Making Plant Stake Critters

I have distributed plant stakes at 3 locations this week, which means a lot of stake-making happened over the past month. Staying focused to pick up more wire was indeed a danger zone during my hardware store trip. Something compelled me to make stakes late last year, but then winter happened and ornament production kicked […]

Consigned at ReVive

Entrepreneurs need to network to keep making connections. At a multi-chamber networking event I fortuitously sat down next to the owner of a consignment store, when my mission was to find more consignment opportunities.

It was time to change up the collection, and I was in the mood to bring in something truly fresh rather than rotate existing pieces into the boutique. There had to be […]

Sparkly Maraviglia at SJS

I met Sara Jane of See Jane Sparkle at a Custer Fair years ago, when I didn’t even think […]

Maraviglia at Dragonfly Boutique

Evanston has some lovely new boutiques that I got to peruse during the charity wine walk. One of my early favorites was Dragonfly Boutique. It is a cozy shop containing clothing, jewelry, fun home decor gift items and art work. Mom and I shopped there for our birthdays and we had a lovely conversation with […]
