I know I'm a little slow in posting this, craft fairs tend to take a lot out of me and take me awhile to recover. I always produce as much work as I possibly can which means a lot of late nights and last minute details. And also because I never seem to have the right chair and my body ends up hating me for standing most of the weekend. Must fix this!
Anyway, it was a great weekend! Made some new friends, a bunch of dotted bowls found new homes, and some people have some nice new drinking glasses.
Next up is the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn, NY : June 22+23. Yay!
Mother's Day is coming up in about a month and you know I think your Mom would love something special and one of a kind! I'm also pretty sure it was my own Mom's dot doodling I saw as a kid that ended up as my subconscious inspiration for painting dots today. So in celebration of this, head over to my Etsy Shop, enter code THANKSMOM at checkout, and you'll receive a 15% discount on the lovely dotted bowls.
The sale will go until Mother's Day, May 12th. And If you live in Los Angeles bring your mom to Unique LA that same weekend and come say hello to me and the dots.
I'm so happy to announce my new line of drinking glasses. I've been sitting on this idea for a long time and have finally been able to make what's been swirling around in my dreams. So check it out my friends! Gold dots. Frosted Glass. Happiness with every sip.
It's time to start travelling the craft fair circuit! First up is Unique LA here in Los Angeles in May and then The Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn in June. That's how I like to do things, one coast and then the other. I'm excited to get the dots back in front of your faces and they can't wait to see you too!

I am officially back from vacation on Etsy! I started to fill up my shop today and I have a ton more to post. Plus soon my new drinking glasses will be available too! I just got a whole case full of them and I'm excited to put lots of gold dots on them.
I'm also going with a cleaner more wood based look this year and I'm very excited. It means more fun staining for me! Yay!
I am pleased to introduce you to the newest store selling the dots! Asrai garden is a beautiful flower and boutique shop in the Wicker Park/Bucktown area of Chicago. I stopped in there last September when I was in town for the Renegade Craft Fair and I'm so glad that this has finally come together! I'm sending their first shipment out today and only the first of many.
I'm pretty picky when it comes to retail stores. It's hard for me to take on many orders just because of how much time it takes me to paint. But finding stores that are styled so well and with great people working there, make me so happy and willing to get them all the dots they want. This is months in the making and totally worth it.
Now you know I love the wooden bowls with all my heart but how about a fully functional and usable dotted product? I am pleased to be welcoming hand-painted drinking glasses this spring! Right now I'm working out my specific patterns and styles. Think mid century. Think gold. Think brass. Think splashes of bright color and frosted white. And on top of all that, they will be completely food safe, detergent safe, and even dishwasher safe. I guess the only thing they won't be able to fight is gravity, but we all deal with that pretty ok on a day to day basis.
I've always wanted a big print of the USA marking where all the National Parks are. Instead of buying one right now I realized I had lots of paint and paper and some free time, so why not make one myself!
