Uppercase Magazine Feature

GJUT6338.JPG

A couple of months ago I got a message from Janine at Uppercase Magazine asking if she could feature my folk art cat painting in the next issue. Of course I said yes! It’s such a colorful, lively page and I’m honored to be there along with other wonderful artists including Mogg Shop because I own a couple of her paintings myself.

The issue just arrived in hands all over the world and I realized that it’s poor timing on my part because my shop is on holiday until July 15. Never fear though, that cat painting and several others will be available as soon as my shop opens. Shop links are in the header.

Christmas Goose Holiday Fair November 16-17

Hand stamped, one-of-a-kind note cards

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

2017 November Small Paintings.JPG

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!
