Realms for the Holidays

November 8, 2015

Call me crazy, but we are doing two concurrent festivals over the holidays, Pacific Arts Market for our lotions and soaps, plus the Allied Arts Festival for my barrettes, shadow boxes and assemblages.

Pacific Arts Market

Pacific Arts Market

Pacific Arts Market is a true cooperative, owned and operated by the artists. I’m stoked to be joining this group for the first time. It will be located in Sunset Square, next to Jo-Ann Fabric. The market will be open the first three weekends in December, Friday through Sunday, Dec. 4-6, 11-13 and 18-20.

Allied Arts Festival

The Allied Arts Festival will be returning to last year’s location, across from the Bellis Fair mall entrance on Bakerview. This is in same shopping center as Burlington outlets, in the back corner. It’s a great space wth lots of natural light.

Stop by both and support local artists!

Getting ready for the Allied Arts holiday show. I juried for both my Realms lotions and soaps, plus the art assemblages I’ve been doing all year. So my booth is going to be a little of both.  Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

Time Gone By

Gramophone dog

Lamp shade half doll assemblage

Been having fun with some mini shadow boxes — in necklace form. They are double-sided.

Festival of Lights

The snow fairies held off long enough to have a very successful Festival of Lights. The art was amazing. And the artists were warm, welcoming and wonderful. We had a great time trading and buying — my house is full of new objects, all lovingly made by hand — including a sweet felt Santa made by Linda Sue.

I fell in love with this bunny.

Elaine makes these delicate decorated bottles and boxes. Her husband has drilled holes in the backs of some of the bottles , which she has turned into nightlights.

Karin puts together these wonderful collages — part funk, part industrial, and part just plain wonder.

And I forgot to mention, the whole atmosphere at Amy and David’s house is wonderful, with the girls and Atlas (one amazing dog) running around. And besides being a good sport, David makes a mean white bean chili.

One of my favorite crafts fairs of the season is coming up December 12th & 13th. The Sixth Annual Festival of Lights is happening at Amy Gould’s home, in the W.W.U. neighborhood, 510 North State Street, across from the Armory.

This is a special show, with unique items you won’t see anywhere else. One of my dear friends and true artist, Linda Hoofnagle will be there. She works primarily in felt. For a sneak preview of some of the pieces she’s been working on, check out her blog, All I Ever Wanted, at http://ifeltit-poppiespoppy.blogspot.com/.

Friday’s hours are 5-9 PM and Saturday 11AM – 5 PM. I’m making a passel of mini-lotions for stocking stuffers. Sure hope to see you there.

Realm-eth by mail

September 18, 2008

I’ve been asked how you can buy my Realms products. You can email me at terrykaye(at)fastmail.fm and if you’d like to preview any of the scents beforehand, just send me your mailing address and I’ll pop a swatch in the mail.

* All 8oz. lotions, shower gels and foaming hand soaps are $10 each.

* The 4oz. room sprays are also $10 each, but are probably the best buy in the line. You only need one spritz and it lasts for hours.

* All the mini shower gels and lotions are $3.50 each.

If you order 4 items to make up a gift basket, I’ll give you the organza covered basket free of charge. And of course, all shipping is extra.

Please place Christmas orders by December 1st.

Gift baskets for the Holidays

September 17, 2008

I’m putting together gift baskets for the upcoming crafts fair season. There are two sizes. The smaller square basket holds 4 lotions or shower gels in the mini-size only. The larger oval basket can be filled with all of the Realms products, including foaming hand soap and room spray. At least two of the items need to be the large 8 oz. size in order to hold the basket’s shape. I’m really pleased at how well the translucent organza wrap works.
