It's been quite a while since my last post! I've just returned from a trip to Rochester, NY for the Mayday Underground Craft Show and a mini vacation with my college friends! 

In preparation for the show I created a painting of the Rochester skyline and 490 bridge. Prints are now available on Etsy.

This painting was done in a technique I have not used in a while: oil pastel, oil paint and colored pencil. I think I'll be experimenting with this a little more, since I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it. 

Heres some photos from the weekend: 

Back to School 2012 Indie Garage Sale

Just wrapped up my favorite local sale, the Indie Garage Sale! I worked out this brand new set up. The side displays are made from inexpensive crates, spray paint, and the bottoms and tops are covered with Mod Podge and scrapbook paper. I used some yarn and some clothespins to hang my small 8"x10" prints. 

Also made this great little chalk board price signs. I think in total they cost me about $5 to make. Much more versatile than the paper signs.
