What a Busy Weekend!

I've spent the week recovering from my crafty weekend in SF and gearing up for another fun filled and very busy weekend. If you are in the Portland area, stop by and see me at one of these fun events.

Buckman Art Show & Sell
April 11th - 5pm-9pm - $5 admission
April 12th - 10am - 5pm - $2 suggested donation
Kids 4 and under are free both days

A benefit for Portland Public School's premier arts focused elementary school featuring live music, kids art activities and a student art gallery where you can buy art from Buckman kids. I cherish the Krusty the Clown portrait that I bought several years ago! Buckman is an incredible school where my son has spent the last 6 years. Come support this great community and take home some fantastic art!

Both my son and I will be selling at the sale - he will have assorted Mr. T related items in the student gallery and I will have misc. oddities for sale in the main gallery. I have some fun new cut tin pieces that I'm excited about - branches with birds and squirrels and nests. Sorry, no photos quite yet. They will probably go onto My Etsy Shop after the sale.

And this year an extra special event has been added to the Show & Sell. The Buckman Bash will feature a live art auction, a free dessert bar and performances by Stephen Malkmus (of Pavement and The Jicks), James Mercer (of The Shins) and Andrew Dickson (performance artist and husband to Susanstars!). I'll be there as a
parent volunteer - I may be doing the Vanna White thing with the auction items...I've been practicing!

And if that wasn't enough - Crafty Wonderland is turning two on Sunday!
I can't believe it's been two years since Torie and I filled Doug Fir Lounge with fabulous crafty goodness! On Sunday, April 13th we will do it again with 40 talented vendors selling their goods along with cupcake decorating at the DIY table and a spinning raffle basket where you can take a chance to win fabulous prizes! Stop by and celebrate with us!

Crafty Wonderland
Sunday, April 13th *11am - 4pm
at Doug Fir Lounge *830 E. Burnside St. in Portland
Free Admission - All Ages!
Full vendor list here.

Gotta run...I have 150 cupcakes to bake!
Hope to see you out and about over the weekend.
