I am ramping up my Ebay sales and reclaiming my title of the Jean Queen.  You can check out my hot denim items here on ebay.  Check back often since I list items every day.  Some go so fast!

I will post a list of all the artists as soon as I have it.  Last Saturday I met a neat artist named Barbara who does painting and is now dabbling in jewelry design.  I want her to make me an OPEN sign for the antique shop.  Her blog  is www.secondsurf.blogspot .  It has neat little pictures of country life and shows which projects she’s working on.  Reminds me I need to update my own site one of these days!

I have a lot of shows coming up.  Recently I was in Slater, SC at the Strawberry Festival.  The main focus is on the beauty pageant but there were some of us crafters out there enjoying the day.  We got poured on early Saturday but it turned out to be a beautiful day.  Don’t forget to come out and see me and the other Trillium artists for First Saturdays in Travelers Rest, SC.  It’s on Center Street, beside the library and Sunrift Adventures.  We’ll be selling our art from 9am till 1pm.

While setting up my booth for the Azalea Festival on Saturday April 18th, I spotted the best old house.  It had everything going for it: massive size, rundown, and all indications that it was once a gorgeous site.  This house demanded my exploration.  Apparently, the town uses it for a haunted house around Halloween.  Faux cobwebs draped the porch ceiling.  Danger! Caution signs were posted.  I need to know the history here.  It’s in Pickens, SC, directly behind Main Street.

This new mannequin arrived on my doorstep on Monday and I couldn’t wait to photograph some of my new necklaces on her.  I’m calling her Vivian and she’s very easy to get along with.  I will have her at shows this spring.

Check out my latest creation.  It’s a kyanite and pewter collaboration available at select stores.  This is gorgeous with jeans.

I’ve been working on some new pieces.  The latest involves sewing tiny black seed beads and silver bugle beads onto pieces of leather.  As soon as I finish it, I’ll post pictures here.  Here are a few other new delights.  These will be up for sale at All About Me on Saturday.  Stop in and check out the transformation of this 150 year old house into Lisa’s shop.

The advertising for this event was minimal.  So minimal that no one knew the museum was having a Meet the Artists weekend.  Heather was there Saturday February 28th 2009 and entertained herself by meeting the other artists.  One amazing photographer, Anne Taylor, happened to stop in.  She had one of her latest photo tiles with her, shot at the Travelers Rest Feed and Seed.  Her work sells at the new cafe at Williams Hardware in TR.  Other artists were Katy Watts of Nyla Beans Jewelry, the Schmooney and his creator, photographer Blaine K. Owens.
