American Artisan Festival

Well, It's crunch time for me. I've been getting ready for the American Artisan Festival in Nashville. It starts this Friday the 18th and goes through Sunday in Centennial Park. I'm so excited to be a part of this event. It should be amazing.

I also am getting jewelry ready to send to the Homespun Store in Indy. This new store in the Irvington neighborhood is so exciting. The owner of the shop, Amanda Taflinger, is a former art teacher just like me and I met her last year during a metals' class at the Indianapolis Art Center. I'm so excited that she was able to make this shop happen, as I know it has to be a dream come true for her. It is also such a boon to local Indiana artists.

Aside from that, I have recently discovered that I will be participating in a few more art shows, some of which are incredibly exciting. The Detroit MAKER Faire should be amazing. It is like a giant science fair mixed with an art fair mixed with a circus. It will take place at the Henry Ford museum on July 31st and Aug. 1st. I will also be a vendor at the local Art on the Wabash in West Lafayette in September. On top of all that, I will be sending jewelry to be included in the Emmy Awards gift baskets. So much to do, so much to do.

So, I am going to cut this post short and head back to the studio to get to work. Wish me luck and if you are in the Nashville area, come out to the American Artisan Festival this weekend!
