Craft Lake City

Just finished Craft Lake City on Saturday. It was the first time I had done this show. It was sponsored by SLUG magazine (Salt Lake Underground) so there were a lot of interesting people there. Sometimes when I do shows I love to people watch and this show provided plenty of interesting people. Saw lots of really fun artists with such unique items. One that stood out was lampshades made from old photo slides slides. I think I would have bought one if I had a place to put it. My booth was next to Gentry Blackburn who owns Frosty Darling in SLC. I had heard of her before but it was nice to meet her and chat throughout the day. I bought a "darling" pillow from her that says UTAH in felt and fur. I will post a picture of it. Thanks to my friends who came to visit. Sold a lot of junk charm necklaces, definitely my most popular item, got a lot of great response and compliments from people. Craft shows are so good for the EGO! One other fun thing is a Salt Lake Tribune photographer came by and took pics of me and my booth. My picture was in the SLC Tribune on Sunday with the article about Craft Lake City.

Go here to read the story.

(Not the greatest pic of me, but a least I'm mostly covered by my jewelry.)

Here are some other pictures that SLUG mag photographers took:

Do you feel Summer is disappearing and you still have so many things to do........that is my life right now.

I am looking forward to catching up on friends blogs, as I've been super LAME this summer. I hope you have all had a wonderful and creative summer. Back to school.........

You were great on KSL today. You have been blessed with may talents. Thank you for sharing. I would say that was my favorite segment on Studio 5. Way to go.
