Quick Update...

OK, things have been busy around here, so means a lack of blogging. But here's a quick update on some projects I've worked on lately that I'm pretty proud of.

House cane:

My friend has been using a cane for the past... quite a while, and it looks like she will continue to use a cane for a while longer. Well, seeing as she also watches House and is completely awesome, we decided she needed flames on her cane. So I pulled out the fingernail polish and went to work. I think I did a pretty good job, considering I'm not really an artist at all.

Birthday guestbook/journal:

This is the book journal I made to be used as a guestbook at my grandma's 80th birthday party last weekend. People didn't use up very many pages, so I'm hoping someone gathers a bunch of the pictures that people took at the party and pastes them in there.

Also, craft show this weekend -- well, as I said before, it's actually a car show. But it'll be great fun. I mean, the Army's bringing a rock climbing wall. How can you say no to that?

Andrews Park in Norman. North of the public library. This Saturday. 10am-5pm. Be there.

Local Craft Fair Smashing Success

This is what the headline in the Norman Transcript would have said... if a reporter from the Transcript had come out to see us. Oh well.

Here I am at my booth, lookin' hip and crafty thanks to my new glasses. (Those are RaggedyPageant's dolls on the wall to the right.)

Claudia, lookin' sweet

JD also has a photo of me with a camera in front of my face. Fun times!

Katie showed up to be supportive and to model my Record Bowls/Hats.

A good time was had by all. There were about 12 Etsy sellers present. We gave out nearly 100 Etsy goodie bags. We met some other Etsy sellers who didn't know about the OK Street Team, and some other awesome people who didn't know about Etsy, but who certainly do now!

We're already looking forward to our next fair -- the 89er Day Car Show at Andrews Park in Norman. Don't let the name fool you -- besides cars there will be crafts, food, music, and games! At least 6 Oklahoma Etsy sellers will be there hawking their wares. More info to come...
