Market in the Meadow!

So I really loved the opening monologue on SNL this last Saturday with Christina Applegate, which became a song and dance.  She was praising the last days of ‘no holidays’… that sweet spot of time in mid-October right before all the holiday madness descends in earnest.  Well, for me that time has come and gone.  It’s officially Halloweenusthanksgivingchristmasnewyearsicus….already.  Weeeee. 

We’ll be ‘celebrating’ with our All New wares at Market in the Meadow this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, so ya’ll come down and check it out!  http://marketinthemeadow.com/  It’s a heck of a show, it’s free, and the vendors are all over the place – from handmade silver jewelry  (like my good buddy Kim Morris http://www.kimberleymorris.com/) to groovy one of a kind antique and vintage-y crafts (like my sister Kim) to the yummy food vendors, hawking delicious cheese balls.  You are probably wondering if I ‘do’ Christmas items.  Well, here’s the proof:

Abacus trees, cd trees, happy crafter!

Fall Shows to Look Forward to!

Here is a beautiful example of *one* thing I am digging on this summer:  Glass installations by Dale Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum.  This on is located behind a wall of water, taken at night.  Wow.

In general, however, summer in Texas never fails to bum me out, even when there are loads of new ideas in my sketchbook and a nice, big new studio in which to work!  Am I just a whiny baby who can’t deal with the heat of Texas?  That would be an affirmative, my friend.  However, there’s nothing like the first crisp day to instantly lift my gloom and get me doing the Snoopy dance again!  So let’s all get on the trolly and imagine that we’re already there… in September, or better still, October!
