We had a great turnout for the Etsy Craft Party! Philbrook was an amazing party venue and I think everyone had a great time. I’ve uploaded the full set of photos to my flickr.
I may even upload photos from FiberFest – geez, that was back at the beginning of May and I never even mentioned what a great success it was! The barn was a perfect atmosphere for the event and everyone had a wonderful time. I bought some handspun yarn from Angora Jane and have been dying to start knitting myself something from it. And of course it was fun to have such a lovely weekend houseguest, miss Samantha Lamb! We had a lovely time together!
Thom started his new job with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation this week and I think he’s going to be much happier… There is a lot of change happening in our lives, but it’s mostly positive and I am feeling so fortunate lately. I had a really difficult spring (perhaps why the blog is so neglected!), but things are looking up.
I’ve got a new series of prints in the works and will share some photos as they progress..
By the way, I totally changed up the website/blog. What do you think?
Hello blog friends. I have decided to skip updating about the events of last fall/winter and just say that it was a season of ups and downs! Indie Emporium was fabulous last year, with over 1000 guests!! Wow, what an amazing and supportive community we are in. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen! I can’t wait to do it again! I hope to blog through the planning process of Indie Emporium more in 2010. We have just begun planning this year’s event and should be announcing the 2010 date and location very soon.
So far, 2010 has been difficult. My sweet 97 year old grandmother passed away in January after she had been in a coma for over a week. She had been suffering from dementia for about 12 years. Grieving is a challenge when a person has not been herself for many years.. So we have been having a lot of family time in recent months. She was a special lady!
I’ve also been working on a new project that I don’t think I’d mentioned on the blog before – make:Tulsa. You can read all about it here. If you are in the Tulsa area, you should join! Add us on facebook to stay up to date on what we’re doing with that.
I’m in the process of getting my (too) numerous websites built/rebuilt/updated/functioning. It entails so much frustration, but I’m happy to say that the make:Tulsa site is complete, and I hope to upload the new weather&noise site this week. Then just 3 to go..
School is going well and I’m finally approaching graduation. I’m spending some time this semester building my portfolio and trying to prioritize things.
Lastly, with the ladies of STICKS (south tulsa indie crocheting & knitting), I have been helping plan a new Tulsa craft event; FiberFest. It will take place on May 2nd and you can read all about it here.
Life is busy, but I will try to be a better blogger. Promise!
