prepping for a spring show!

as promised, i am here to fill you in on what i’m working on for an upcoming spring show. i will be selling my wares at an event called ‘spring fling’ at amy’s farm in ontario, california.

yep…i shall be in the open air, surrounded by farming enthusiasts, and the farm’s four-legged and feathered inhabitants. and i can’t wait! the april 11 event runs from 10AM to 2:30PM, and admission is $7 for ages 2 and up.

if you know my work, then you know that i am all about flowers and nature. and, since i will be at a farm, and already have a botanical bent to my work, i thought it appropriate to explore those other garden delights–vegetables. yep, i am making vegetable-themed pieces:

deliciously dainty veggies for your ears!

deliciously dainty veggies for your ears!

i thought it would be fun to embellish the hang tags with a vintage-style seed packet design with the name of the vegetable in question. appropriate to the venue, interesting to look at, and helpful for shoppers to identify the vegetables, too!

in addition to veggies, i will have some berry-themed pieces, as well as some butterflies, ladybugs, and, of course, all those lovely flowers i am known for. any new pieces leftover from the show will be listed in the shop, so keep your eye out!

working toward a specific goal is helping me stay on track, creatively speaking. i feel inspired and productive…which is a welcome change.

here’s to spring!
