Catch Me If You Can

Ooh! Things are busy around here -- and I am guessing it is a busy time for all of you.
Making, cooking, holidays, friends, family, wrapping, eating......
standing in lines?

Yup, I did it again -- stood in line at the wonderful Cavallini Sale.
I got up at
Can you believe it? At least this year it wasn't raining. My pals and I got there at about 6:45AM and the doors opened at 8AM and the wild stampede began.
Cavallini is really a wonderful local business. They supply PEETS coffee (the best!) and boxes of fresh donuts and the employees working the sale say
"thank you for coming"
(as if wild horses could keep me away).

My two bags filled with treasures. I wish I could show you what's in the bags but Santa would be mad at me if I did....
Let's just say I got a lot of Xmas shopping done and some things for myself as well.
Who needs Black Friday when you have Cavallini??

I am also picking up bits of fabric and lace for my slow stitching projects...In the meantime the little fabric piles look so pretty. And that flower needlepoint -- I got it all finished for $5!
It is so pretty...I want to cut it up and use pieces in my creations but I am still working on the concept.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the studio too......I usually refuse to do anything before Thanksgiving but since Thanksgiving is so late this year I realized I better get this party started!

I love those Flat Rate Priority Mail boxes and Padded Mailing Envelopes.
Thanks USPS! 

I picked up the art studio for my special Thanksgiving guests (you know who you are). Hung some things on the wall.....

....and yes, there will be wine and cheese......
You all are welcome to come over for a little party!

The town square near my house has a little light show going on...such a pretty spot.

Thank you to all of you who bought books! They are all sold out except for two and I really appreciate your suppose and interest in the books. And for your patience!
I've been told people had trouble commenting and the Contact Me Form wasn't working. This was not Bloggers finest moment. I'd like to switch my blog to a better platform but right now the thought is daunting. I may sell on Instagram. Loads of people do it and it seems easier, so stayed tuned.

So, now our thoughts turn to food -- and family and friends -- here in the USA.
I am thankful for all the lovely comments and support I get from the art community on social media. And I am also thankful for all the inspiration.
I hope you all enjoy the holiday.

Pop Up Shop! (An Experiment)

Want to buy a pocket book or three?

There was a lot of interest when I asked the question in my last post so I am trying an experiment.
This is kind of a free form pop-up but you guys are all cool, right? We can do free form.

These are cute little books with pockets that can hold money or  gifts cards or ephemera or travel souvenirs.
They make nice little gifts or maybe you'd like one for yourself?

I even made some Christmas inspired books with red pockets inside...

Top Row middle Santa SOLD

Santa is SOLD

And, some are of Vintage European postcards....

New York is SOLD




Both Roses SOLD

You could get the pink and yellow rose one or the pink rose on green background.....
or, both...



Coming to San Francisco? Or maybe you've been here already? A nice little souvenir for you with some Chinese joss paper tucked inside...I have multiples of this one...

So here is the free form plan...

Little books are $20.00 each plus $2.50 shipping

THREE books are $50.00
plus $5.00 shipping

Only USA Orders please

Comment below on which books you would like -- maybe what photo the book is in and a description e..g. "French Postcard book in first photo, bottom right"

Leave me a message with your email and I will NOT publish the comment. I will email you to see what books you are interested in and we can go from there...

So, that's the plan.
It would better if you all could just come over to my studio and pick them out and hang out a while.
I don't want to open an ETSY shop so I am just trying to make this work.
You blog readers are getting first pick but if I don't sell them quickly I am going to put them out on Instagram.
I"m just saying.

So, thanks for all your support and encouragement.

I discovered that messages from Contact Me are NOT going through. I am so sick of Blogger. I need a new platform for my blog.

Happy Xmas Shopping!SEND GOOD MAIL -- GET GOOD MAIL.
