making do.

Lovely "Singer Print" by Clare Owen, via Design Is Mine.

I feel like a new person now that my holiday craft show preparations are over, because I went from planning the wedding to going on the honeymoon to crafting my head off, without a break.  And now I can do other things!  And the days stretch out beautifully before me.  Happiness is a clear(ish) calendar.

Things from the Richmond Handmade Holiday craft show:

Seen — A girl carrying a rabbit around in the hood of her hoodie.

Overheard –A conversation between a father and his tween daughter:

Dad: I just want you to get off it and stay off it! [I think he meant her cell phone]
Tween: Well what am I supposed to do….LOOK AROUND or something?
Dad: Yes!

Accepted — A compliment from an older lady:

Her: “I dressed up as you for Halloween!”
Me: [long silence]
Her: “I was a goth!”
Me: “Thank you!”

Traded my wares for —

Prints by Erica Vess of Bee’s Knees Studio.

A glass nugget from Jackie Mancini of Pretty Silly Things.

Bookplates and a mini letterpress wallhanging from Aijung Kim of Sprout Head.

It was by FAR the best craft show I’ve ever bothered with.

In other news, two tidbits:

Aaaand a little something else pretty, for good measure:

Talk about a garment with great motion.
