If you are looking for something nice to do this weekend, come to the Forks and visit me at the Farmer’s Market. I am sharing a table with the fabulous ceramic artist Charlene Brown. So there will be lots of eco-friendly jewelry, photography, textile products such as purses, cup cozies and hair accessories and of course pottery from clayhaus. The Farmer’s Market takes place in the Market Plaza from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. See you on Sunday!

Here is another flower I created this weekend to go with my summery outfit. Super easy to make. I just cut out a string of pedals using the lining of an old jacket (perfect use for the lining of a jacket I had used to make cup cozies). I stitched one long line through the fabric and in the end gathered it all together and voila a funky flower was born from a piece of old clothing. Have a look and if you would like to get more instruction on how to make it just email me at email@example.com
It was a big day on Sunday. I was going to my first ever wedding shower. I had heard many stories, not all good and I was feeling a bit nervous about it.
The shower turned out to be a positive surprise. It turned out that everybody was really nice and welcoming, the gifts the bride received were all so personal and amazing and even the games I had been dreading were fun. The old “make a wedding gown out of toilet paper” was so much fun. I have to say that we had a bit of an advantage having lots of creative people on our team and the gown ended up looking pretty good. As part of the gown I had created a large flower head-piece a la Carrie Bradshaw, which everybody commented on and it inspired me to try it out with fabric that night. I started with an old polka dot scarf and recycled the material. I made the flower smaller and attached it to a headband I already had and voila I had something way more interesting than my old headband. Last night I took some feathers off a headband that had broken and made a new one out of it. I am so excited and I am going to try out some more fun flowers and maybe incorporate some feathers and make some more head pieces, so make sure to check back.
