I am still pretty giddy and creative and it's a good thing because David emailed me tonight asking for 8-10 more pieces for the show. I got that email at 9pm which is only about 30 minutes shy of my normal bedtime. I also had a few sales on etsy!! So instead of going to bed I went down and got my packages ready and made a few more boxes. I got 7 done for the show and it will just have to do.
Here is another kinda creepy one that I love that will be in the show.
So come to Stumpjack tonight....Friday at 7pmish and check it out!

Easter was so fun this year. Molly is at that perfect fascination age where the little things made her squeal. She was amazed at the colored eggs that appeared all over the house and very happy to get Enchanted from the Easter Bunny. I have a feeling I may see that movie 10,000 times. Oh well it's good. We went to Glenn's parents and played outside for a little while on Molly's swing. Man look at her she rocks.
Speaking of rocks I am obsessed with making my new rock jewelry and paid a quick (and cold) visit to a nearby beach. Yeah this is just 2 blocks from my house...how lucky am I?

So I am almost finished putting together everything for my upcoming show at Stumpjack. The theme is stuck behind glass so I created about 30 little jar fairies, my crazy shadowboxes and I took my pendants to the next level when creating these little beach find necklaces. They have been so fun! It was one of those things I made that made me realize that a simple process like soldering can be taken in a completely different direction. I am really excited to play with it more today!
It is my very first solo show and will be at Stumpjack starting with an opening on Friday March 28th at 7pm and on display until Mayish. I am very excited send a big thanks to my friends David and Kim for giving me this opportunity! So I would love to see you at the opening! My friend Greg Pagel will be playing some groovy backround music and like always there will be wonderful coffee, wine and atmosphere at Stumpjack!
Oh and by the way I am playing hookie tomorrow so......
don't come to Persimmons on Friday!
My husband has a day off and we really need some time together so thanks for understanding!

Feel free to print this picture I took of a daffodil and hang it up. They are instant happy feeling flowers. If I could I would give you a real one. Happy day to you!

The new Sputnikfest tshirt arrived this week. This is the design and it is just on the front of the white tshirt. They are only $18 and all proceeds will go to Wisconsin's wackiest tackiest festival of all time. They are available at the Rahr West Museum right now and will be on the website very very soon. Of course you can always contact me and I will be sure to get one for you. There are actually a lot of new forms on the Sputnikfest website so go check it out now! You can register for the art fair, Miss Sputnikfest, or even download the donation form and become a partner in all this fun. Imagine how cool your friends will think you are when you are listed as a partner in this crazy event!
We are also going to be making these into tshirts....
Tina Kugler is an amazing artist and you should hire her if you need an illustrator. Her and her equally talented husband Carson own this little building right around the corner from me so if you are in the market for some commercial property you should check it out. Manitowoc rocks so it would be worth moving here for.

I love this house... Maybe not for the actual construction but the message. We have a large Hmong population in Manitowoc and the kids are so super talented it is amazing! In a world where you have to look just like everyone else to be accepted it can be tough for these kids to fit in in a predominately white community. I think it is unfortunate that kids feel they need to cover their heritage and that is what this piece portrayed to me. It was basically saying I can cover my eyes...dye my hair but behind it all I am still Hmong. I was really touched by it when I noticed on the side where it was signed she wrote thanx mom and dad.
This one is a 1st grader! Yeah 1st grade. How wonderful is this picture. Who doesn't love a juggling snowman?
