Have you? It’s definitely spring here in Western PA (I saw some House Sparrows doing-the-do this morning so I know it’s true) and we’re all coming out of hibernation and greeting the new season.
A few Spring Cleaning items:
Last weekend was Craftin’ Outlaws in lovely Columbus, OH. Thanks to Megan and everyone for putting on another great show.
I will be at the Mt Lebanon Earth Day event this Saturday to celebrate. Stop by my booth to say hi and feed some mealworms to my hens. It goes from 11-3 at Main Park.
I will be adding some new pieces from my tin series to my etsy shop later today. This one is already there:
Lastly – I designed and printed a 5×7 piece featuring a Great Horned Owl. I am going to be selling the print and a portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to Wildbird Recovery Center. Details to come in the next post.
Spending the day here in beautiful Columbus, Ohio, at Craftin’ Outlaws.
Just in time for Spring everything is new around here now. The biggest of the big doings is that my wonderful husband took the leap into working and living the way he (WE) wants to. Yesterday was his first official day as the Big Boss Man at Yellow Couch Studio. This means so much to us – more time together and more time as a family, flexibility with our time and our days, space and time to explore new ideas and projects. It’s all so wonderful. I am so proud of him and excited to see what our future brings.
I’ll have a couple of full days a week to work myself which will be the first time since 2006 that I’ve been able to dedicate big, fat blocks of time to my pursuits. (Watch out, pursuits!) I’m starting my new work life by putting a bunch of new work up in my Etsy Shop.
Watch as my dear friend, Adrian (of Communal Table), makes fresh pasta with her son.
Listen as my dear husband, Steve (of Yellow Couch Studio), sings “Pink & Brown”.
I just posted about Spring possibly, maybe, thinking about finding its way and look what I found in the hen house just now! I believe it’s a sure sign.
Spring is starting to become a reality. It’s still snowing and beautiful out but I’m just beginning to feel that little twinge of excitement about warmer weather and more light and growing things.
It’s all coinciding nicely with a new batch of work I just delivered to the Square Cafe in the Regent Square neighborhood of Pittsburgh. I had a burst of creativity this winter in expectation of the coming season and this work is the result – birds, bees, hens, trees and the like. It will be up through the end of the month so stop by and grab a coffee (or some delicious pancakes) if you can.
