Busy Little Bee

I wish I could keep this blog up to date more often.

I have quite the plate full right now of work that needs to be done in the next few months.

Now that the Art vs Craft fair is over, (and I must say it went really well for my first time organizing one!) I have more time working on my own work again.

Right now my main focus is to work on my dear cousin's wedding invitations. She wants them done by Christmas, that way when she comes home for the holidays, her and her mom can put them all together and what-not. I'm super excited to do this for her, as I always wanted to design wedding stuff. :)

I'm also planning on selling my paintings and illustrations at a few craft fairs in November and December. Plus I have a table at Hal-Con. Which I need to work on a few more fantasy paintings and sci-fi stuff, plus some fan art.

And then I want to start planning my next craft fair. I'm hoping to have the next one in March. I have to call around and see if I can get a space for then. I learned so much from the first, that I hope my second will go 1000 times better.

Then I have a few odds and ends to finish and work on. A graduation present for my sister, flyers for a friend, and to design a few things for myself.

Keep an eye out for the new blog post, which will be soon, as I will be posting pictures of my newest paintings.

Oh, and if you're interested, you can check out the photos from the craft fair here: Facebook page pictures.  We were filled to the brim with so many talented artists and crafters and everything in between! I loved it. :)

Art vs Craft

It's tomorrow!

Getting super pumped about it! I have everything done for it yesterday. Which means I won't be going balls out tonight trying to get stuff done.

I have 4 new paintings done just for this event. 3 are 8x10" canvases and one is my biggest painting yet! It's 16x20"!

I will also be selling my fruit buttons, bookmarks, and prints of all of my digital work.

I also have greeting cards for sale which have photographs printed on them that I have taken in the past.

Besides me, there will be 40 other artists from around the area who are setting up shop! Want to take a peek of who will be there? Check out the twitter feed for it. I have been tweeting about everyone and have links to their webpages, blogs and facebook pages. http://twitter.com/#!/artcrafthalifax

Be sure to come out! It's at the Halifax Forum in the Maritime Hall from 11-6pm. One day only!
