End of Summer Update

At the end of summer, I often feel as if I hadn't done enough to enjoy it. I didn't camp like I thought I would or go on any big trips. But I tried to be productive when it came to Knuckle Kiss.

It's like that Aesop fable about the ant and the grasshopper. I tried to be more like the ant. Fingers crossed for a bountiful fall and winter.

A few weeks ago I dropped off a batch of jewelry at Twilight Gallery and Boutique in West Seattle. I'm thrilled to have some pieces in their boutique, which features a great selection of jewelry, cards, accessories, prints, and more.

Twilight also has a rotating exhibit of artists in their gallery space. The current exhibit is the Iconic Women Series by Kristina Griffith and it's beautiful.

"Jaguar" by Rocio Arreguin 2013

And, a week from today, I'll be vending at Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird with my friend, Rocio Arreguin! She makes fabulous illustrations and paintings.

I'm loving her new series of anthropomorphized animals framed by wonderfully rendered graphic patterns. It's gorgeous work and you should come to Oddmall and see it if you're in town.

Oddmall will feature over 150+ vendors selling odd and unusual arts and crafts, carnival-esque performances, and a fleet of food trucks. It'll be a fun way to kick off fall.

I hear there's a costume contest, so if you're itching to try out your Halloween threads, here is your chance!
