Post show activities

After my show at Venus on the Half Shell my studio was a complete disaster. I had to clean it before I could start any new projects. Here are a few photos to give you an idea. 

Fabric everywhere!!!

Here's the same shelf a little more organzied.

More fabric messes!

A little better, but still needs work. At least I can walk around in my studio now!

I made a few more stockings for ArtMart at Cafe Nola.

This was my space at ArtMart yesterday. I got to share the stage area with my friend and local artist Kevin Good.

These are some of Kevin's pieces. He's amazingly talented. You should check out his instagram @johnnycrowhand 

And then today I started to list new things on etsy. Check them out!

Now that the holidays are almost here I need to start focusing on Christmas presents. Stay tuned for some hand made gifts and new garments!

Window display and show prep

My show at Venus on the Half Shell is tomorrow night and I am very excited. I did the window display on Wednesday and tonight I set up the pop-up. Here are some photos of the progress...

Streaming some fabric yo-yo's for some garlands.

They look super cute on this Christmas tree.

I hung these ornaments on the tree and also from the ceiling.

This is the finished window. It's hard to get a good photo because of the reflections, but you can get the feel of it. Simple with a gold and red theme.

I made some stockings to hang on the mantel.

Here are a few sneak peak photos of my pop-up:

I hope you can make it out for the event tomorrow!

Window Display Preparation

My wonderful bosses at Venus on the Half Shell  let me do a window display for my shows.  For this show I decided to do a red and gold window. I'm trying to keep it festive. This is what I have going on for the window, which I will put up tomorrow.

I made this dress a few weeks ago. I decided to feature it as the main piece in the window. My boss Mike took this cool shot of the dress.

I decided to then make a kids dress matching the fabric. 

Finished Kids dress.

I made gold and red yo-yo's out of scrap fabric I had left over.

I'm making garlands to hang on a mini christmas tree. It seems dorky, but I swear it looks really cute.

I also decided to make stockings to hang. Im not too thrilled with how this one came out, its a little big. So I think I am going to re-make smaller ones tonight with red velvet and fuzzy fabric.

I also spray painted some embroidery hoops to make ornaments to hang.

A finished ornament. 

And now this is what my studio looks like!!!!

Wish me luck to finish everything for the window display, and stay tuned because I am putting it up tomorrow!
