Evanston Angel Making

I am having such a blast in the studio this week! I still have more ideas than I have hands and time to implement, but Tuesday I was able to replenish the map angels that keep on fluttering off. For today’s pop-up soiree I will add the Evanston angels to my shelf. I worked on […]

Angel Making

It is angel making time. No matter the season, I consistently sell angels throughout the year. So after my angel count session last week I had to replenish some more. My purples and blues are popular. I also keep selling the skull angels I have in stock. After a 3D encaustic workshop my friend and […]

The Ornament Factory Opens

The holiday season is about to kick in for me, so the other day I pulled out my angels for a thorough count. I also checked last year’s sales to see what colors sold. There is no science to prior sales as a predictor, but it always helps to know what colors customers gravitate toward. […]

Heart in Texas

I’ve been trying to maintain normalcy since August 25, but there is a lot of emotional upheaval when the town you spent 8 years in is devastated by a catastrophic storm. My mom and brother still live in the greater Houston area, as do many of my high school classmates whose parents are still rooted […]

Holiday Support

Between fairs in November and December I also sent off a few commissions. Through the Wilder Mansion Girls’ Nite Out I met a person who wanted an heirloom earring converted to a pendant, the way she had seen in my display. Throughout the process I had to gauge my strength no not break this lovely […]

Bucktown Show Recap

My last show for the season was the Bucktown Holiday ArtShow. As always, this show was a lot of fun and featured many creative artists. I enjoyed making new friends and catching up with the regulars. Day One was filled with visiting friends and some new admirers. I enjoyed watching what people gravitated to in […]

Christmas Bells and Angels

I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old, familiar carols play, and wild and sweet The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men! And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along The unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men! Till ringing, singing […]

Countdown to Christmas

Fair season is over for me, but shopping is still allowed in these 10 days before Christmas. I just posted the angels and frosties I have in stock on my Facebook page. You can see individual photos of the angels here. Reds and Greens: My remaining frosties have individual photos here. I also still have a […]

Ornament Factory

Since sending off ornaments to 4 boutiques, my own supply has been depleted. So for the Irish American Heritage Center’s Christmas Bazaar I had to go back into the studio. I reviewed some Irish Christmas carols, and found my favorite on the list. Then I realized my friends had requested rainbow safety pin angels, and […]

Making Angels

Angel is literally making new friends. When I signed up for Bead & Button workshops there was a reverse engineering option but due to lack of registration the workshop was dropped. Instead, Brenda Schweder offered to help me reverse engineer my angel ornaments remotely, and I sent one in. Soon I received an email with […]
