Busy, Busy, Bee

So many exciting things have happened this week. It's been a total whirlwind! Earlier this week I got a "promotion" at Girls Guide to the Galaxy and am now the new Arts Editor. YAY! I'm so honored to be a part of this fantastic women's magazine! We have all sorts of neat-o events coming up in the very near future, be sure to stay tuned for details.

Today, I got an email letting me know my artist feature is live on Cafe Handmade. This is such a cool site that hosts a weekly virtual craft show. I'm thrilled beyond belief to be featured.

In addition to the totally awesome stuff happening I've also been feverishly crafting my butt off. Lots of new things are happening in the studio. I've added some toddler clothing with cute-as-hell appliqued animals, some new doggie toys, as well as making a bunch of jewelry. I've got lots more new stuff in queue for the big show at the end of the month, Big Ass Indie Arts & Crafts show at Mad Art Gallery. This is going to be a cool show. There will be live entertainment too! That same weekend I'll be representing my favorite craft store, Paste, at Soulard Farmer's Market with my pal Bobbi of DownZipper. I'll be at the Farmer's Market in Tower Grove Park on September 19th, then the next big show will be on September 26 & 27, the Strange Folk Festival in Illinois. It's going to be a huge bunch of fun with tons of artists from all over. I can't wait!

I'm feeling a little tired reading about all my big plans! In addition to all the fun in the studio, I have a wedding to attend and photograph for one of my dearest friends, Teri, a camping trip with the kiddo and a hotel overnight at the Crowne Plaza with my bff, Paula (I won a free night's stay last year and it's about to expire!). The day job is crazy busy with the fall semester rapidly approaching and I'm starting to wonder if I'm ever going to sleep again. Good thing I like coffee and there's nothing more I love than being busy.
