Last Minute Gift Bazaar

Greetings All,
This weekend and next I'm hosting a last minute gift bazaar at "Hand Works Gallery/Studio" (my home) and I'm excite to see how many people will stop by.
I'm pulling out all of my inventory (dolls, quilts, gourds, jewelry, and garments)and we shall see what we shall see. I did this a couple of years ago and it was ok. The best part is not having to pack up and haul everything to another location, set up, break down and haul everything back home. Most of the times I'm by myself and this diva is not getting any younger.

Greetings All!

Greetings All,
I'm just checking in to see what's going on. I've not been busy with dolls this week, but I have been busy. Sunday I started out at a wonderful early dinner at a Art Space project called "The Switching Station Artists Lofts". The company was good and the food great. Later that day I was at a members reception at the Garfield Park Conservatory hosted by the Garfield Park Alliance. They were launching their new book about the conservatory titled,

Monday I worked with a small group of children at the Sankofa Safe Child Center doing fabric postcards (above). Tuesday I hung out with my mentee at Urban Circle Ministries drawing with oil pastels, and last night I was with a group of children at Youth Service Project, Inc. doing fabric postcards for the "2nd Annual Holiday Bazaar" that will be 12/21st and 22nd. I will post pictures later, but here are some pictures of their artwork (below).

Tonight I'll be going to and artist opening in Wicker Park. So far this week has been a busy one for me. I'm also having a 2-day "Last Minute Gift Bazaar"at my home on Saturday/Sunday. So what's up you dollies?

Hello All,
I went out vending yesterday with the Darling Divas/Friends and several of them found new homes. Two long time friends came by and bought two at my special friends/family rate. So Carnelian (left) and Favor (right) are off on new adventures and Carmella (below)of the "Brownlee Sisters" (aka "Glam Squad Series) will be going to her new home after the 1st of the year. So I'm back in a doll making mode and I'm off to create.
