If you follow me on twitter or facebook, you might have seen a few weeks ago that I announced that I’ll be a vendor at Renegade Austin in May.  I’m super excited about this!  I’ve been spending this morning working on my plans for the show and also for my weekend in Austin.  I’m a little bummed that the husband won’t be joining me at this show, but I’ll be there with a few of my favorite crafty ladies.  Austin friends, is there anything I need to make sure to check out while I’m there??

I’m really excited about my lodging while I’m there too.. I’m doing some custom artwork and printing for a lovely little B&B in exchange for my weekend stay.  I’ll share more about that later!

In the meantime, I’ll be printing and designing and printing, printing, printing to prepare for my busy spring schedule.

So, if you’re in the Austin area, come see me May 21st & 22nd at Renegade!

I’m excited to be participating in the Tulsa Art Studio Tour this Spring!  I’ve attended this event a few times and always had a great time.  I do hope that if you’re in Tulsa, you’ll come see me!  April 9&10!
