This weekend is a Pop Up Shop at Maglianero Cafe in Burlington, Vermont. I will have a few one of a kind clutches and evening bags for sale. Stop by if you get a chance. With all of these talented women selling art, fused glass, jewelry, tote bags made from coffee sacks and ideas for garden design, there’s sure to be something to check out for everyone.
Here’s a peak at a few of the clutches. I think you would have as much fun carrying them as I’ve had making them. They really are a piece of art to carry your phone, cash/cards and a lipstick when you’re out on the town.
I would think it’s a co-op of about five different artists and I wouldn’t even know what to pay attention to. No wonder when I get there I’m not always sure what I’m going to work on—I want to do it all and sometimes, unfortunately, that’s immobilizing.
I think at this stage of my life I am seeking a more direction.
I don’t want to get static or rigid, but good grief, I think there’s a space in between.
I’ve decided to take a few minutes, get quiet and see what I want to work on BEFORE I take off for my studio. I’m hoping that simple act will get me more focused and deliberate. I’ll let you know if it works…but I might forget and you may need to e-mail and ask me about how it turned out. It seems like this just might be a natural state of our world…but I want to fight it. There are so many things to pay attention to that it’s overwhelming. OK, off to the studio, but first, I want to check out that song, book, technique, read my e-mail, the news, oh there’s a video I bookmarked…aaaarrgggghhhh.
and I didn’t even turn NPR or music on all day. I was so happy to be alone with my thoughts, a giant iced tea (thanks to my son) and all of my leathers, fabrics, trims, sewing machines and tools. I wanted to start working on my accessories for the fashion show (STRUT) on September 12th, in Burlington, Vermont. I’m afraid this bag may be a little dark for the runway. However, with the right styling it might just work.
