Halloween Display

The Howe Branch of the Albany Public Library has its decorations up for Halloween... I was lucky enough to have been asked to design the background for the display -- out of what, you ask?  Well, cut paper of course!  Check it out:

The fireplace is a carved stone journey through Rip Van Winkle, and is original to the library, which was built in 1928.

Craft Fairs

Last weekend was a good kickoff for my craft fair season! Upcoming Fairs include the following:

First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany (FUUSA) Holiday Craft Fair and Bazaar

Sun., Nov. 13: 11AM - 3PM
(405 Washington Ave., Albany NY 12206)

You should also be able to check me out at the Delmar Farmers Market, Saturdays in November and December (excepting Sat., Nov. 12th).

New Inventory

One new item I've added to my repetoire is Sock Monsters. If you love my repurposing of magazine paper, fabric, beads, etc., you'll love these funny creatures! Made from repurposed socks and fabric, they love to look at you sideways and give silly glances.

I'm also taking custom orders for Sock Monsters, Ornaments, Bags/Purses and Jewelry! So feel free to email me or post a comment on my blog, send an Etsy convo, text or even do what they did in the olden days -- telephone!

Gift Wrapping is available, too!
