Beer-B-Q Tomorrow

Since I'll be up late tonight preparing for tomorrow's Beer-B-Q, I thought I'd post this lovely treasury created by Sadiesthings of Etsy Dallas. Also, I happen to be in it, front and center, which is pretty sweet so a big thanks to Sadie who also happens to make lovely jewelry!!

I did manage to take some pictures of the stuff that will be in the show tomorrow, but unfortunately due to a UPS disaster with my business cards and the fact that I'm going to end up printing my own at home tonight, I won't be able to edit and post them until next week.

So, to everyone in the DFW area, I hope to see you at the show tomorrow, and to everyone else, goodnight!

If I were on a picnic...

If I were out on a picnic, instead of working Reapercon, then I'd have to wear...

And some long ornate earrings from AncaNY:

Hopefully I wouldn't mess it all up by eating fried chicken!

Busiest weekend ever!

So on top of the Etsy Dallas Beer-B-Q that is happening on Sunday, this weekend happens to be Reapercon 2008. This means that I'm working extra hours at the convention while still trying to get all of my work finished for the sale.

So far I've completed several necklaces, and many earrings, and I'll hopefully have time to take pictures of them tomorrow after I escape the convention, although I can't promise any pictures anytime soon. Anything leftover from the sale is sure to either make it into the shop immediately, or if it's sold out will be put into production.

Also, as a side note my One Yen Coin earrings were featured in In the Night Kitchen this week! Thanks to Amy Esther Ceramics for the sweet write-up!

Huzzah for free beer!

So right now I'm gearing up for the Etsy Dallas Beer-B-Q coming up in a couple of weeks. This will be my first time participating in an Etsy Dallas event, and since we'll all be selling our jewelry I've been working on building up as much stuff as possible. If you're looking for more information about Etsy Dallas, you can check out their blog or their website.

From some of the forum posts I've read, most people recommend taking as much as you can, so I'll be making more than a few new designs and one of a kind items to go with my standard themes. I'm currently working on some simple geometric pieces, as well as some that incorporate filigree style wire-work. I'll make sure to get some pictures of everything before the show, so keep an eye on my flickr page for the next couple of weeks.

So, if you'll be in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area on the weekend of May 18th, between 11 am and 5 pm, and you're interested in some free food, free beer, or just checking out some awesome handmade stuff by local crafters / artists, then make sure to come see me at the Etsy Dallas Beer-B-Q!
