First Two weeks of December...

James Library + Art Center December 5th
Design Hive on December 6th
Transportation Building on December 9+10
Holly Fair in Cambridge on December 12+13
The last 2 weeks have been a blur… It started with a trunk show at the James Library + Center for the Arts in Norwell (my hometown) on December 5th followed by the Design Hive on December 6th in Cambridge. A few days later, I set up shop at 10 Park Plaza for the 22nd annual Transportation Building’s Holiday Festival on December 9 + 10, and then wrapped up at the Holly Fair in Cambridge on December 12 + 13. There are still two more shows before I finish the 2009 season and I’ve learned a lot about overloading one’s schedule as well as how to function (well) on less than 3 hours of sleep. Since it’s been a few weeks since my last update, I have lots of fabulous vendors to mention and my plan is to list everyone in an abbreviated fashion so this doesn’t go on and on…and on. Plus it’s a busy time of year for everyone and I’m finding everything is taking me longer to do than I’d like. So enough with the blah, blah… here are the fabulous folks: Mary Draper Murray, Outside the Box Jewelry Designs was my neighbor on December 5th at the James Library Trunk Show. Former model and dancer Dina Canducci, Ducci Designs displayed her one of a kind designs at Design Hive on December 5th!
Lisa DeMio, RedStaggerwing Designs also brought her fabulous goods to Design Hive… all the way from NH! (love this pillow! yum!) Fun and funny Liz Ballard of Crafty Lizzie was across the aisle with her handmade greeting cards for all occasions.
At the Holly Fair in Cambridge on December 12 + 13, I shared a teensy room at 42 Brattle Street with three lovelies including Sue Randall, Thistledown (hats, gloves, scarf, baby bibs - sorry folks, she doesn't have a website); Keyse Angelo, Flauxy ...colorful and fun jewels (happy birthday girl!); and Rob Charlton, Goosefish Press pictured above with his printing press in South Boston.
I probably left off a few people I'd like to mention but I'm rushing and will remedy with the next post! Wishing everyone a happy, healthy holiday season! I’m off to give hugs to my nieces and nephew and light the menorah!
