Sometimes I feel like I have my hand in too many things. Too many pies in the oven. But the truth is, I like it that way. I love having a variety of interest! There’s jewelry making, writing, bookkeeping, office remodels, and kids to think about. Today, a slice of jewelry making.
A necklace for Miss Darcy, one of the most complex characters in the Austen cannon. I love her story. Her fall from grace, her struggle, and ultimate redemption. Used by a scoundrel, then rising into womanhood despite him. I love her. This beautiful pendant reminded me of her; the pink color is called Antique Pink, and it’s perfect for her character.
I’m working on lining up shows for the fall! I’m excited for some things coming up in October, and hopefully several in November. I know, I know, it’s a long way from now. For now, let’s enjoy summer!
I went on a bit of a vintage shopping spree. I shopped through my favorite online venue (Etsy of course!) and found some lovely antique pieces. I’m pretty darn excited to incorporate these into some new designs.
I’ve been unable to schedule a spring show because, you know, life. There are ballet performances, swim team finals, soccer games, and birthdays. But I’ll keep posting new items to the shop, and hopefully Mom and I can find a table to sparkle up this soon!
I’m happy to announce that Bhuey Designs will have a table at this year’s Craft Boutique & Vendor Fair at the Colerain Township Senior & Community Center! Last year’s show was my very first craft fair, and it was such a positive experience. The Bhuey Designs team (hi Mom!!) have had many successful shows since, and I’m so excited to be back at the Colerain Craft Boutique with our new and updated line of jewelry and accessories.
I’ll have my usual spread of sparkly Swarovski crystal jewelry, plus my popular book marks, and some very special holiday jewelry.
The show is on December 2, and runs from 9-3. It’s held at the Colerain Township Senior & Community Center, at 4300 Springdale Road.
I am super excited about the next two months. I’ve got three (maybe four!) shows lined up for the holiday season. First, the Colerain Boosters Craft Show! I’m really looking forward to this one. It’s such an established, and big, show that I’m also a little nervous. But it’s going to be great!
Next up is the Holiday Hop and Shop which benefits the Weschester Cooperative Nursery School. My nephews attend this preschool, and I’m so happy to be supporting them and their school. The show is on November 11 from 2-4. More details to come soon!
Then comes December with the possibility of two more shows! My reservations are not yet confirmed, so I can’t share details yet, but I will soon.
Save the date for the September Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show! I’m really excited to be doing another Avant-Garde show. I’ve had such fun at the two I’ve done already. The show is on September 23, 2018, and it runs from 10-5. We’re at the same location, the Oasis Golf and Conference Center in Loveland.
Admission is $3, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Bake Me Home, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting volunteerism and encouraging shared family experiences for those in crisis.
I’ll be sharing some sneak peaks of new items soon!
It’s less than a week until the Cincinnati Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show at the Oasis Conference Center in Loveland. I’m pretty darn exited for this one. I have a new display, and tons of new items to share based on my favorite works of literature. Please come say hello!
Admission is $3, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Dragonfly Foundation. Kids under 12 are free.
The Dragonfly Foundation is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides support to young cancer patients and their families. Through gifts, social events, and community building, The Dragonfly Foundation helps young (0-30) cancer and bone marrow transplant patients find strength.
A wonderful art and craft show that benefits a wonderful cause. What could be better?
Oh my. January is over already. Things have been *quite* busy around here. Homeschool is rolling along, and we’ve managed to avoid a January slump. I think the fact that we’ve had some crazy warm days has helped. Even though Evy and I have a hard time fully enjoying warm days in winter…we know too much.
And then of course, there have been the snow storms that I have popped up between the warm days.
February promises to be another busy, busy month. There are the usual commitments, plus swim meets and….drum roll…another jewelry show to prepare for! I’ve been hard at work creating more lovely pieces for my favorite heroines. Here’s a sneak peek.
More information to come soon! Until then, happy crafting/schooling/living to all!
A finished project is always so satisfying. My Rainbow Hat was extra gratifying because the recipient loved it too. I finished this up a few days before Christmas, and it made the perfect early Christmas gift for Kev.
The yarn is Knit Picks Felici Worsted. It was my first time using this yarn, and I was very pleased with the results. It’s smooshy and soft, and the stripes are so much fun. The pattern is the Headford Hat by Theresa Gaffey from the book Drop Dead Easy Knits. It was a lovely pattern, and I’d definitely use it again.
My next project is already on the needles. Another hat (for me this time!) using lovely yarn gifted to me by my mom for Christmas 🙂
