New for the season, is my latest scent, aBandon, a sweetened cranberry. I’m making it into everything, including shaving soap. I particularly like it as a room spray.
And, in other news…
The new home for this year’s Holiday Festival of the Arts is…
This is the building kitty-corner to Bellingham High School and used to be a bingo hall, Sunshine Liquidators, and, most recently, Mayberry’s Sporting Goods.
Bonus: latte stand in the parking lot!

Allied Arts’ 33rd Annual Festival of the Arts is officially open for the season. They have a new location this year, across the street from Geri Fields, behind Inside Pitch in the Haskell Business Park.
Some amazing work is on display. C’mon down and support local art!

Here’s how the table looks this year. There was room to add a tall, skinny shelf to the right — perfect for some of my assemblages.
Here’s to buying handmade and local. Cheers!

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

The Allied Arts Holiday Festival opened yesterday and I’m happy to be in it for the second year.
Here’s how the table looks this year. Got a few new things: bar soap, roll-on perfumes and the room spray is in a new slender brushed aluminum tube.
Heading out to do a shift at the show, but look at what arrived overnight. Going to have to leave a little early, I think.

So stoked! I’ve been accepted to Allied Arts’ Holiday Festival, the grandmama of Bellingham’s Christmas fairs. I’m going to have to get busy stocking up. The festival runs for over a month: from November 20th – December 24th. Hot damn.

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 Ed, holy moly, well the glass screams for itself.
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.

What a busy crafts fair! 60 crafters from one end of the church to the other. My, oh my, there was some absolutely gorgeous stuff. I was honored to be included among them.
