Love & Joy... Spring has Sprung?

There's nothing like warm weather and the awakening of Spring to feel inspired. My mission for March, was to find some delightful new paper and create something fresh and floral- without being typical.

On my quest for new paper, I was able to find some screen printed gift wrap (love plate above) that feels a bit asian inspired... as well as some darling napkins with a sweet bird print (joy plate above). I have been coveting my little bird napkins for a bit, as I know that, once they are gone-- they are gone. (Note to self- "go with your gut and buy multiples if you really like a pattern", as I have been sadly noticing that, some of my faves aren't readily available anymore.)

I used the little bird pattern on a previous post with my "Sing" plate, but felt a need to continue the bird theme on a smaller version. A lot of people tell me they like the smaller 6 x 6 size for a jewelry dish, soap dish or simply display dish. Perhaps an even smaller version on a pendant next????

The Pink Parlour Festival... How could I resist?

I am preparing to exhibit at the 'The Pink Parlour Festival 2010', next Sunday. It's a unique one-of-a-kind event that completely caters to women of all ages. Looks like a lot of creativity and estrogen in one wonderful venue!  The Pink Parlour is a festival celebrating the creativity of women and I am extremely excited to be part of it.

In the words of the Pink Parlour creators...

They anticipate their 2010 festival will more than double in attendance. Their objective is to "unite women and collaborate talent, bringing together unique hand crafted items and art, at affordable prices. It’s girl power at its best with female fronted bands and djs entertaining all day. Goody bags filled with samples, treats and coupons will be given out to the first 200 attendees. So ladies, come join the craft revolution!"
