Renegade San Francisco!

I know I've been a little bit absent on the blog lately.  I have SO MUCH to share with you.  Alas, I have very little time for blogging right now.  I've been so busy getting ready for craft fairs and working on commissioned pieces, I haven't had a spare moment to sit down and recount it all.  Any free time I've had, I've been using to enjoy the beautiful summer that's settled upon us in Portland.

Hard to believe that my yearly rafting trip down Oregon's Deschutes River has already come and gone. How time flies!

This weekend I will be loading up the car and heading down to San Francisco with Janell of Prunella Soaps!   We're packing up our shops and getting ready to vend our goodies at the Renegade Craft Fair!

SO!  If you're in the Bay Area this weekend, please swing by!  There will be countless creatives to peep and loads of wonderful crafts to buy.  And it's FREE!

Please stop by our booth and say hello!

Giveaway Winner Chosen and New Work

It's finally here!   Time to announce the winner of my celebratory giveaway!  Chosen by random number generator.........drum roll please.....

....the winner is Chrissy Foreman C!  She'll be receiving this wonderful lot of Little Canoe goodies.  Congrats, Chrissy!

Thank you everyone for all your encouraging comments, it really means so much to me!  Now, onward and upward!

In preparation for the big trip down to San Francisco to participate in the Renegade Craft Fair in July, I've made a very special print.

You can find it both in my etsy shop and on Society6.

What a perfect way to dress up your laptop, don't you think?  I know there are a lot of Bay Area lovers out there.

I'm really pleased with how the stationary came out.  Such a terrific card to send to your loved ones who are missing their beautiful home in the bay of California.
I'm planning to have mugs and postcards made with this image as well.  Hopefully they will be available in my etsy shop soon, so keep your eyes out!

I've also come out with a new pickle design!  A print after my own heart, I tell ya.  I'm clearly obsessed with pickling and canning.  I've recently started a group that gets together and trades what they've made.  It's glorious!  We're called the Portland Preservation Society!  If you live in Portland and are interested in joining, just make a request on our facebook group page.  Here's my print inspired by this pickling passion.

My big plan with this print is to make beautifully screen printed tea towels.  That's why I've decided to leave it as a black and white design, instead of filling it in with watercolor.  I'll probably make another one at some point with more color detail.  You can find this print in my Society6 shop as well.  

This one looks pretty great on a t-shirt.  You can be the envy of all your friends at the Farmer's Market wearing this hip tee!  So go ahead, treat yourself!

To finish things off on a slightly hilarious note, here's a little sketch from the IFC show Portlandia:

500 Sales and a Giveaway!

I'm so incredibly excited to announce that I just hit 500 sales on Etsy!  When I first opened my shop last year, the thought of reaching 500 sales seemed like a far fetched dream.  NOW, thanks to all you wonderful people out there, my dream has become reality.  And I'm not stopping here!  Another 500 sales await me right around the corner, I can just feel it.
As a big ol' thank you to all my wonderful friends and supporters out there, I'm setting up a giveaway!

I'm giving away all the wonderful things pictured above!  Included are 3 cards (including my brand new birthday card!):

(You can find this cute newbie in my etsy shop)

This fun 5x7 beard heavy print:

An Animals of the Pacific Northwest Tote!

A mini sketch book featuring artwork I did for local band Loch Lomond, and a couple Little Canoe badges!  What a great lot of goodies!

All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment and include your email so I can get in touch with you if you win!  Contest runs through Monday, June 11th.  


Meanwhile, don't forget to pop into my shop!  I'm having a 15% off sale with coupon code OHHAPPYDAYS!  Take advantage while you can.

Another Busy Week

Another week has passed and I have a few things to show for it, so here we go!
I ended last weekend with another craft show.  Janell from Prunella Soaps and I trucked our creations out to Kenton (North Portland) for the annual Kenton Street Fair.

What started as a rainy, cold, and somewhat miserable morning turned into a warmer and completely tolerable (if not fun) afternoon!  The turnout was pretty good once the rain subsided and it was so nice to be outside smelling the delicious food and listening to local music.  It was also terrific practice for us to set up our booth together since we'll be heading down to San Francisco in July for the Renegade Craft Fair!

The rest of my week was focused on my upcoming solo show at a local shop called Redux.  This will be almost entirely full of new work that I'm really excited about.  If you live in Portland, you should come down for the First Friday Art Walk!
