...I'd give this world
Just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars

Vote for Your Favorites!

I am applying for an alternative craft show out-of-state (I don't want to jinx it by telling you which one!) and I can only submit three images on my application. So, I need your help to decide which three would wow the judges and make them want to pick me to be a vendor!

I have revised my original idea thanks to the advice of the lovely miss Alison from The Sampler. Please look at the choices below and then vote for your ONE favorite from each photo set on the sidebar poll to the right.

EDIT (7/16): Voting has closed! Many thanks to everyone who chose their favorites in each category. The winners are Donut Bracelet, Blue Cells Pendant, and Stroke of Midnight Necklace. I'll keep you posted and let you know *if* I was accepted in to the craft show!

Set One: Tiny Treats

Set Tw0: Resin and Glass

Set Three: Beads

Randall helped me clean the dust off of my living room ceiling fan the other day. It was pretty gross, although the particles in the sunlight were quite beautiful.

It's Not My Garden

But still pretty, nonetheless! I think my neighbor has been doing the gardening in front of my apartment building.


...from Comfest weekend. Still.

Everything wound up going very smoothly (except random rainstorms and downpours). Our Etsy Team Columbus tent looked super-cute. Check out some of the photos!

After Comfest was all wrapped up, I was ready for some serious laziness. Randall decided to celebrate summer by making some serious veggie chili cheese dogs.

This is how I have felt all week. Stella knows what's up! Nap time...

Yesterday, I packed up all of my wares again and headed over to the North Market to sell at Artisan Sundays. Sales were great and I will be hard at work this week making more little clay treats. I am also trying to get some new stores to stock my items, so we'll see...more news on that soon.

And to the person who stole my handmade "Birthday Cake" ring from my booth yesterday:
1) You owe me $14.95
2) Karma will get you
3) If you're going to steal, don't steal from small businesses or people who hand-make their items, for God's sake!!!
