Dear Central Oregon Friends,

My one and only holiday art fair this year is the Christmas Goose Holiday Fair this Friday (9-6) and Saturday (9-4) at St. Charles Hospital, Bend. As most of you know this fair is a fundraiser for Wendy’s Wish which provides non-medical support to cancer patients in the area. As a two time cancer survivor, it’s very close to my heart. I am unable to do the Holiday Tails Art Fair this year, but hope to be back there in 2019.

I have been getting together a wonderful collection of items: handmade and printed note cards, original watercolor and acrylic paintings, hand painted and stitched ornaments, my embroidered ornaments kits for you to DIY, and lots more. I’ll also have some of my linen drawstring pouches and zipper bags, a Christmas stocking and a Christmas quilt.

The newest items are the hand stamped note cards (both Christmas and everyday) that are made from my hand carved stamps. Each one is a little different. I’ll also have lots of printed Christmas cards and everyday note cards, stickers, note card sets and much more.

I hope to see you there! If you can’t be there I am planning to keep the Etsy shops open and see how that goes. If things get crazy I may shut the shops down for Friday and Saturday, but they will reopen as soon as possible. If you want to be sure to get something before it sells out, both shops are open currently. Thanks so much!

Christmas Goose

I'm all set up at the Christmas Goose at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend.  The show runs Friday 9-6 and Saturday 9-4.  It's one of the best holiday shows in town, so I hope you'll stop by if you are in the area.  There are so many good vendors too!  I regret that I didn't get a photo of Cheryl's table, but her Silly Dog Art Glass looks fantastic.  There are also the most amazing soaps at the table just to the left of mine.  Lots of good stuff.

Etsy Update

Just an FYI- On Thursday afternoon I will be deactivating about half my Etsy listings for the show I'm doing on Friday and Saturday.  All of these are included in that, as well as all the ornaments and greeting cards.  Items that I am not bringing to the show will still be available in the shop.  I'll adjust the listings and reactivate unsold items on Sunday.  so, just be aware that some items may come and go over the next few days.  Have a happy, colorful weekend!

Christmas in the Shop

'Tis the season for holiday boutiques!  Now that Christmas boutiques are popping up all over the place I hope you'll also consider purchasing gifts and holiday decor from the artists on Etsy.  I have recently added the hand stamped and hand painted Christmas cards above, as well as a Christmas stocking just added today.

I also have two upcoming local shows.  I hope you'll consider coming out to both of these outstanding art and craft fairs.

  • Christmas Goose fundraiser for Wendy's Wish cancer patient support at St. Charles Medical Center on November 17 (9-6) and 18 (9-4).
  • Holiday Tails Art Fair fundraiser for the Humane Society of Central Oregon at the outlet mall on December 8 (4-7 wine and cheese reception), December 9 and December 10 (10-4).

At both of these shows I'll have mainly ornaments, acrylic paintings, watercolors and gouache paintings.  I'll also have greeting cards, both printed and original painted cards. 

I'll also have a few of the stitched ornaments that I made as embroidery kit samples.  You can see the second bunch below ready to be finished.  If there are any left over after the second show I'll be putting them in the shop.
