Yesterday's Project

This is one of the things I did in the studio yesterday. They are card sets of my art & photographs. I mounted the photographs with those old fashioned looking black paper photo corners...that way the photo can be removed & reused or framed. I left them blank inside for folks to personalize. Then I wrapped them up in a 12x12 sheet of paper, put a black with white polka dot ribbon around it with a sticker on the front that has the description & pictures of the cards inside. They look so pretty all sitting together! These will be going to The Artist's Tree for the month of December. The next batch will go to my Etsy shop. Today's project? Soldering...wish me luck!

Pumpkin Karnage!!!

Today was Pumpkin Karnage day...Here are the remains of our prize trophy pumpkin. WARNING: Content may not be suitable for some viewers. If you are squeamish, it's best not to look any further! They don't call it Karnage for nothing! We got 26 cups of pumpkin puree which will make 10 pies & 11 loaves of pumpkin bread. Tony was very excited...he had to try the pumpkin on...actually I made him do it so I could take a picture. After all, it wouldn't be Karny Life without the Karny ;)

First Friday: December 5th

I stopped by The Artist's Tree yesterday & now I'm going to be a part of First Friday on December 5th. There will be a lot of other local artists there as well. First Friday is an event where all the galleries in downtown Spokane are open in the evening...there's usually food & beverages & folks wonder from gallery to gallery. This will kick off the holiday shopping season so come by, say hi & buy local this year!

The Artist's Tree Gallery is located at 828 W. Sprague Avenue, Downtown Spokane, WA, across the street from the Davenport Hotel.
