working on more scarves too

New Scarf I just finished last night. This is a lovely red-violet-ish shade I came up with
(not a commercial dye shade, so it is very limited edition). This leafy pattern really seems to work
best on the woven cotton scarves, so I think I will only be putting it on that style (not the infinity jersey style scarves). I like its primitive folk-art appearance. My goofy cat, Max-orange, in the top photo, has appointed himself as my photo stylist, and can often be found on my lap while I am trying to work on something else!
       • Late Addition to my Holiday Sale roster----on Wed., 12/18/13 5-8pm, I will be at the Fall semester Book Party with a selection of my wares, in Uarts CBS Auditorium, 320 S. Broad St., (Hamilton Hall) in Center City Philly.

Next Sales in December (so far)

Now that November craft sales have wrapped up, I have a short breather this coming weekend after Turkey Day (Thanks to all my customers, old and new, especially at the Waldorf School of Philadelphia! Awesome sales there!)... I will be at the Northwestern Stables Holiday sale (120 Northwestern Ave., Phila., PA 19118) on Saturday 12/7/13 from 10a-4p. The historic barn will be all decorated for the holiday and there will be plenty of equine-themed fun plus education about the stable and its horses; besides all the cool craft vendors set up with their wares on the ground floor in the stable, as well as in the large 2nd-floor former hayloft (where I will be).
This should be a great event, since the Valley Green Inn at the Wissahickon Creek has their Wreath Decorating event happening, in addition to the Chestnut Hill Holiday House Tour, at the same time! Lots of people converging on the lovely Fairmount Park Wissahickon Valley area, as winter approaches.
Proceeds of the Stable craft sale benefit the riding lesson program, and help keep the hardworking lesson horses in carrots, oats and new shoes! This cause is close to my heart, as I got to do some riding there in Summer of 2013 after a VERY Loooong hiatus from being in the saddle----did it when I was a young'un; have wanted to get back to riding again since forever!
I made a special new design for this sale too. (Photo above). It depicts “Doc,” the horse I rode for the summer lesson sessions---he was very patient with me getting back into riding shape, so I thought he deserved to be the subject of a T-shirt!
So, I am psyched!! {Thanksgiving vacation will be spent busily printing, among other things...}.

I will also be back at the Mt. Airy Art Garage in my neighborhood for the final installment of their Holiday sales series----on 12/14 and 12/15/13--12-6pm. Last call for getting those awesome artist-created holiday gifts!!

Upcoming Sales for Fall Season!

Summer 2013 (and my fun studio time) is sadly waning fast....
But, I will be setting up some super-cool art/craft sales venues,
just in time for back-to-school and lovely cooler fall weather;
On deck so far:
•Saturday 9/7/2013, 10a-4p
Wyck Historic House
“Behind the Fence’’ Bee and Honey Festival
6026 Germantown Ave., Phila., PA. 19144
I had a great time at the last Wyck House garden festival on 8/10/13.
Wyck is like a little time-capsule and oasis in Philly, you forget you are
in a city on this 2.5 acre mini-farm!

•RiverCity Festival
Saturday 10/5/2013, 12noon-5p
at Penn Treaty Park in Fishtown, Philadelphia
1199 N. Delaware Ave., Phila., PA.
Super awesome historic park right on the
water of the Delaware River. In addition to craft
vendors, there will be a beer garden, food, live music,
and tons of other cool stuff.

I'll be adding more venues as they roll in, so stay tuned!

Robo-Squirrel Goes Tie-Dye (and metal enamel squiggle surface too) for Summer!

Here is Robo-Squirrel on a “Ka-zow-ee” cool Tie-Dye shirt new this summer!
Robo-Squirrel loves swirly Tie-Dye and Tie-Dye loves him right back!

Here is Robo-Squirrel on an even cooler over-all speckle pattern, which will be extremely
limited-edition --also new this summer. Woo-hoo!  I am still working out
what other images I might print on these--I have the same speckly pattern on a series
of different shades of blue and blue-green shirts. Due to the small number
of T-shirts I have available in this new entity, for now they will likely only be offered
for in-person sales at art fairs I do this upcoming late summer, fall and holiday time.

Kitsch Kitchen Bird --New Design

This is my latest new T-shirt print---much of it is also hand-painted.
It's based on a photo of a cool old vase I have hanging in my kitchen.
The colors are a little bright and not really all that naturalistic;
it is quite stylized, as I worked to approximate
the glaze colors on the vase.
So I call it “Kitsch Bird”.
I am pleased with it so far, although it is a bit labor-intensive to
produce. It's a good project to work on when I need to unwind
and be in the flow of it.
