East Lansing Arts Festival

If you happen to be in Michigan this weekend... stop by the Arts Festival in downtown East Lansing May 17-18. Look for me at booth 13... (i'm not superstitious, i'm not superstitious.... is that convincing enough?). Hopefully all goes well!

I have reinvented my display for the summer and will be set up for the first time this weekend. It is somewhere between an apothecary and a sushi bar... I'm not sure which, but either way I hope it works for selling jewelry.

I have a ton of new work for sale.. evidence that my torn up hands and exhaustion amounted to something over the past few weeks. There are some great new etched pendants and earrings that I am very happy with... so new that I don't even have photos yet.

I'll be taking some pics of the set up and posting them soon! Hopefully tomorrow night if the hotel internet cooperates.

My fingers are crossed for decent weather, though the forecast calls for wind, rain showers and not the warmest of weather. I am bringing many layers of clothing, umbrellas, and the rainproof walls for the tent....wish me luck!

Feeling Bookish

Wow, I have been rather absent from my blog lately. There has been so much going on, I have to find odd moments in between to sneak a post in these days.

Well, it is official, I have been published in my first book! 500 Pendants and Lockets by Lark Books.

I went out to Barnes and Noble tonight and found it just waiting there for me. I could barely wait to sit down before flipping through to find my work!

What followed was a extremely geeked out moment of disbelief. I bought the copy we found there, and then we drove to another local store so my friends could buy a copy as well.
