The Show!

My booth

So, my first show went fairly well. I did better than I expected, I met a bunch of fantastic SF Etsiers (Sarah Deragon, Annie of Sourdoughs, Rebecca of JimDandys, Kendra of KendraRenee, Erin of Eristotle...) other crafters (like Jess of XOJF and Liz of 1 by liz) and my fantastic friends came to visit me (and make purchases).

Thanks to the ladies of Lightbox SF for making my first show so painless - cant wait for the next one!!!

My photos didn't turn out very well - Sorry - still getting a hang of the new camera!

First Craft Show Eva!!!

My very first craft show is tomorrow night hosted by the wonderful Lightbox. They are doing these "Crafty Hour" show to gain support and funds to open an artists workshop space - how amazing is that??

I am excited and a bit nervous about tomorrow (what if no one talks to me!). I hope some of my Bay Area peeps can come visit me.

I love the evening craft show idea because cocktails + shopping is a lovely combination :).

Just what I've been looking for

I just saw this fantastic post about DIY Headboards on SF Apartment Therapy (yeah I am a little obsessed with the site right what?). I have been "trying" to figure out what the heck to do in my bedroom for over a year now (by "trying" I mean that I get annoyed every couple months and find stuff I want to do and then never do anything). This post might actually push me into finally taking the plunge, I am truly inspired!! So my favorite ideas are above and below. What do you think I should try??

I scream you scream, we all scream for

I just had to share this fantastic packaging for ice cream that I found on Packaging of the World - love the colors and typography - very playful. Of course, the ice cream looks pretty dang good too (and its au natural). I will be keeping my eyes peeled for this stuff.
