Dave and I were at Borders tonight. I was looking at the calendars when Dave came running up to me really excited. He had just seen a girl carrying one of my purses! How exciting! It was the Teela one that was sold at the Rock and Roll Craft Show.
Tomorrow my friend is in town and we are going to Rock, Paper, Scissors in St. Charles. www.rockpaperscissorsblog.blogspot.com I cannot wait.

My nephew is a funny little guy. You pull a camera on him and he just looks grimly into the camera. After you snap the shot, he is smiling and having a good time. I don't think he dislikes having his picture taken he eagerly poses for the camera. But he just stares blankly into the lens. Prime example above, first picture is his pose, the second is what he looks like after the picture is taken.

The Rock n Roll Craft Show was the past weekend and, boy-o-boy, was it a good time. First off, it was at The Mad Art Gallery http://www.madart.com/, which was way cool. Crafters and artists had their work set up department store style and there was a lot of great goods to choose from. On Saturday night, I worked a two hour shift at teh jewelry booth, which was a huge mistake. I wanted to buy a little of everything! But I ended up buying for myself a really pretty collage necklace by La La Lori. It is really pretty. I don't have my digital camera so you are goign to just have to take my word for it. I also finally bought a couple of prints from Cate Anevski http://cateanevski.com/ I have been eyeballing her work for a while and now I have some for my own! Other things I bought are for presents so I can't mention them here. I ran into Denise of First Born Studios She is so nice and I am always amazed by her beautiful work. Her mixed media collages are awesome. While I was working, the band Gentlemen Auction House performed and a sock monkey walked around. I found out later the sock monkey is actually Matt Kindt, the Super Spy artist. http://mattkindt.blogspot.com/ It was exciting to realize he was there, let alone dressed like a huge sock monkey. I get star struck for local artist "celebrities." He had an awesome display set up in one the old jail cell, Mad Art Gallery is an old police station. It was tons of fun and I sold tons of stuff and I spent lots of money, so it was a good weekend. I can't wait until the next one. The next show I will (hopefully) be in is the St. Louis Craft Mafia show, Indie Valentine on Feb 2nd. See you there!
