Goodbye AEDM, Hello Alternatives Holiday Craft Show & Craftforms

AEDM #29

Today is the last day of Art Every Day Month, though I haven’t quite finished my sketchbook yet.  I have three more pages, the center bit, and the covers to complete before that deadline in January.  I have worked on a couple more pages since my last post.

I also want to remind you about some upcoming events this week.  The 12 Days of Cuffmas start tomorrow where $10.00 from every cuff purchased on my Etsy shop between December 1- 12th will be donated to Heifer International.

This Friday (12/2) from 5-11pm at the DCCA in Wilmington is the Alternatives Holiday Craft Show.  I hope to see you there as we rock Delaware!

Day #30 of AEDM

Saturday(12/3) is the public opening of Craft Forms 2011 and at 1pm there will be a talk given by the exhibition juror, Elizabeth Agro.  Directly following that is a Meet & Greet with some of the artists including moi.  We’ll be discussing our pieces informally and I’d love to see you there! (There being the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA)

Also, Handmade Holidays 2 at Some Things Looming in Reading, PA opens on Saturday.  I won’t be there, but you should be!

Day #25 More Crazy Circles

November is almost over and with it ends Art Every Day Month.  I’ve been sketching away and have obviously made this sketchbook about texture.

I’ve also been working on five new cuffs and setting everything up for the 12 Days of Cuffmas.  While I sit and wait for Table Top studios to restock their photo background paper, I have to spend a ton of time cleaning up the scratches out of my photos.  IT REALLY SUCKS!  But the cuffs are awesome, I don’t clean their scratches up ;^)

Day #26 7 Pointed Star
Day #28 - Something Simple
Day #27 - I traced my dog's snout - he's very accomodating!
This one isn't done yet and I'm not totally OK with the texture I'm using, but you gotta try new things, right?

Craft Forms Invite and More Sketches

First, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the exclusive Craft Forms 2011 Preview Party on Friday, December 2nd from 7-10pm at the Wayne Art Center.  If you would like to go, please contact them before November 28th.  Here is a copy of the reply card, but you can download and print the PDF from their website too.

(I will not be at the preview party, I will be at the Alternatives Holiday Craft Show at the DCCA in Wilmington, DE that night.  I will be at the Juror’s Talk and Artist Meet & Greet on Saturday the 3rd from 1-3pm)

There is also the opening for Handmade Holidays 2 at Some Things Looming in Reading, PA on December 3rd from 1-4pm (which I also won’t be able to attend, but other participating artists will be there!)

And now for my latest sketches for Art Every Day Month and the Sketchbook Project:

A bull's eye piece I did forthe 19th
More insanity for the 20th - I do like that background though.

A quick one this morning.
And another crazy one this evening. I've really gotten into these crazy textured backgrounds!

And I worked some more on that map page which it appears will be the only mixed media page in the book.
