New Stakes at Sacred Art

Spring is in, and in preparation of the Lincoln Square Wine Stroll as well as Show of Hands I brought more garden stakes to Sacred Art last week. Co-owner Kaitlyn combines my stakes with plants, and I love how they pop against the greenery. Lincoln Square’s Spring Wine Stroll is Thursday, April 25th, 2019 from […]

Pop Up Gallery Refresh

Last week I did a Pop Up Gallery Refresh, and also moved shelves in the Downtown Evanston Gift Store. The Evanston Pop Up Gallery has changed ownership and is now Artem Pop Up Gallery. With utility work happening at Sherman Avenue, it looks like the rebranding is more dramatic than it actually is. I brought […]

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. We agreed to a meeting, and after that I merrily made some springy pieces for this lovely store. Owner Jackie opened ReVive […]

ChromaK8 Jewelry Swap

With Spring in the air it is time to refresh my consignment locations. Last week I hit the studio to make some new pieces for ChromaK8. 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 […]

Earrings for Ear spools

When I had my pop-up at Chroma K8, she mentioned the need for different types of ear hooks to safely stay in her ear spools. I had ordered some clip-on loops, and those seemed to work with a trial run. However, of the three pairs one didn’t function, so I perused the Bead & Button […]

Sparkly Maraviglia at SJS

This journey of solopreneurship has taught me that I have more peers than competitors, and it has been a joy to get to know Evanston businesswomen who are successful and supportive of fellow small business owners. 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 […]
