A Surprised Unearthing

On a cold, dark, rainy Saturday a packaged arrived at my door. It was labeled “A Grave Correspondence”.  

How curious and strange, my inquisitive self pondered.

Inside a box, nestled in tendrils of spring green. A tiny spoon bound by ribbon with a message: 

Here lies a Wicked Missive. Exhume With Care!

Inside a box of rich, black earth and tiny gold flakes. A Grave and Curious Correspondence indeed!

With caution, I use my dainty gold spoon to slowly push aside the earth. But, what’s that? A sound! A solid something!

A grave something!

Pulled from the dust, an intricate, tiny coffin, exquisitely detailed with vintage imagery and dancing skeletons. Only a special something could be housed within!

Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween! A burned scroll bound in burlap, sealed with wax! 

This spider seal makes me swoon! How special! And inspiring!

Unrolled, an invitation! The highest compliment! A moment to be inspired and a memory to be relived!

Let the creating begin!

 

Please join in on the fun and be moved by all things Halloween, September 29th, 2018 at the Calhoun County Fairgrounds in Marshall, Michigan. More information can be found here.

The Kentucky Crafted Market 2018

It’s almost time for the show that kicks my season off–the Kentucky Crafted Market. In less than two weeks, I’ll be packing my little creatures up and trying to wrangle them to the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky for this year’s show. Yep, Louisville, Kentucky! Many of you many remember that in the five previous years, Kentucky Crafted: The Market has been held at Heritage Hall in Lexington. Before that, the Kentucky Crafted Market had a long history in Louisville and so this year the show will return to its home.

There are a few more changes taking place, as well. Traditionally, Friday has been open to wholesale purchasers only. This year, on Friday, the public will be admitted from 5-8 p.m. at a discounted price if you’d like to scout vendors or make sure you get first dibs on artwork!

Otherwise the show is open from 10-7 on Satuday and 10-5 on Sunday.

The banner below will take you to the The Kentucky Crafted Market website for additional info, driving directions and ticket purchases if you’d like to purchase tickets early.

Now, back to the work table for me!
