>30 Days…


Thirty days to primp and prep ’til I pack my wares and head down to Crafeteria 2009 in Phoenix! Yes, dear friends in art and life, I am in the building (er um parking lot). I made it, me and 29 of Phoenix’s hottest indie artists will make our works available to the public this December 4th.
The pressure is on this year because: 1. Last year’s debut garnered rave reviews from craft show veterans and patrons alike. One of my bracelets even had a write up on the local paper’s fashion blog! 2. Phoenix or (NoPho) is quickly becoming the place to be for art and artists and Frances Vintage (home of Pretty in Peace designs) is the New Times boutique to beat when it comes to handmade goodness. I’ve got my work cut out for me.
While I toil away with the wire and beads, the postman has been coming through with all manner of display goodness. Feast your eyes above on these darling trays by Etsy seller Iktomi. I’m big on texture and contrast and can’t wait to rest shiny baubles atop their earthy goodness.
I’ll be posting periodic updates as the Pretty in Peace art and design table comes to life.
Peace and art
