March Sunday Handmade Market

It’s time to get back into the Art Fair groove! I am glad I have a checklist because after 2 months I need a reminder of what to bring. This Sunday, I will be popping up at the Handmade Market from 12 to 4 p.m. Handmade Market is a unique event to connect the makers […]

Upcoming Events

I am gearing up for holiday production, and while you are busy decorating for Halloween, here are upcoming dates for you to find my ornaments and adornments. All of these are in the state of Illinois. November: The Wilder Mansion Holiday Market takes place at the Wilder Mansion, 211 Prospect Avenue in Elmhurst. The doors open […]

March Handmade Market on Saturday

Last month was a blast at the Handmade Market. The streets were cleared from the snowstorm and while side streets by the Empty Bottle were slightly messy, I found a spot on a plowed road and happily unloaded my things. This Saturday I return to Handmade Market Chicago from 12 PM – 4 PM at […]

Sidewalk Sale fun

It is interesting to see how different pockets of Evanston participate in the Sidewalk Sale. Last year I had a blast with See Jane Sparkle on Chicago and Dempster, where the Sidewalk Sale is a big event. This year I learned that on Sherman Avenue in Downtown Evanston, the participating merchants are less concentrated. I […]

Ladies Night Out in Elmhurst

Returning to the Wilder Mansion is always a joy. It was a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon, and I got the same table as the Holiday Market last year. Soon I was set up. The ample set up time meant I got to peruse the other booths in mid-dress after a delicious lunch. This undressed booth is […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk IV

Being part of the Ravenswood ArtWalk is always fun. This year Architectural Artifacts offered their Artifacts Events space to Ravenswood ArtWalk artists, and we were so fortunate to get to be in this spot. I had never visited the store, but am planning to go back to look at all the things. How amazing are […]

Garden Center Fun

I spent the last few days of August making some dragonflies for Platt-A-Palooza. It was a glorious Saturday when we set up at Platt Hill Nursery. Flowers greeted me as I unloaded the car. The amount of space is always amazing, and I had fun setting up my booth. Foot traffic was great, so I had […]
