    Make Your Plans! (The holidays are here!)

    I would like to talk about the Mary Queen Christmas Bazaar this evening, because it’s coming up–before we know it–the first weekend in December! This art, craft, and food festival is held annually in Friendswood, and was first suggested to us in 2005 by my sister-in-law. We learned that the bazaar is a juried arts and crafts event with top-quality goods. We got in that year, and plan to continue our annual streak of participation in this “feel-good” event. The bazaar is held in the parish hall–indoors!–so bad weather can’t put a hole in your calendar, so plan to join us December 4th and 5th. Attending the MQCB will light…

    Ready to show!

    The last new pieces have been finished and we are now in our packing mode, getting ready for the trek to ARToberFEST! This pendant is called “Warmth” and features a Rhodolite cab (garnet family) and 24k gold, which was applied using the Keum-boo technique. Read more about the pendant at our site. We hope to see many friends at this show. Please come by if you are out and about this weekend. Hope to see you there!

    ARToberFEST is this weekend!

    We are burning the midnight oil getting ready for ARToberFEST on the 17th and 18th! It’s great to be down in Galveston–an important historical town in Texas, and there’s nothing like being at the Gulf! I anticipate meeting the artists who will be on either side of us–an inevitable and pleasant aspect of doing these shows. Last ARToberFEST we met Becci King and Kathy Spanier, very nice people to say the least. We traded with Kathy for some of her beautiful watercolors. Best news of all though is that it’s supposed to be SUNNY! We have had buckets of rain lately–yesterday I thought the curbs might wash away but the…

    One Down and Two to Go

    Alone Star was in Austin at the Pecan Street Festival just a couple of weeks ago. It was a good experience for us going back to Austin, our home town, and as usual, such jaunts continue to be learning experiences as we hone down just what we want to to with our presentation during shows. Every show is different, so our displays have been different for each. One thing we know for sure is that we want to make setting up and breaking down much simpler than it has been in the past, for all the shows. And we think we are getting closer to that goal as we get…

    Almost Showtime!

    Well, tomorrow we head for Austin and spend the evening making final preparations for the Pecan Street Festival on Saturday and Sunday. We are both working fast today to finish up any pieces that still need final touches. For instance, this image features a new necklace that I started yesterday and completed the remaining necklaces this morning. It’s called Twirly and is made from Greek leather and Argentium sterling silver wire. For more information, please click here to view the necklace on our website. And if you’ll be in Austin, TX this weekend, don’t forget to come by booth 94 to see us! You may get lucky and win a…
