What Happens after the Crawl?






Besides trying to set up a studio like space that is not in the living room I still have four of maybe five markets to go. The fifth is at VGH and I am not sure if it is open to the general public. More about that later.

A Rainy Eastside Culture Crawl


Monday, there is a Crawl space to put away for another year and a studio to reclaim. Upwards of 800 brave people made it out to my space this week end in spite of a the rain both Friday and Saturday. Thank you Carmen for helpling Friday, Debby for being willing to brave the storm and Hugh for his support throughout the weekend.

I have also to thank Carmen for the lead Saturday night to get about 30 salmon row boxes from an add on Craig's list. After closing on Saturday Hugh and I ventured out get a deal on these little treasures that will find there way into my in the future.

Not Thunder or Lightning

Last evening was the first day of the Crawl. Thunder and lightening for the first two hours and still there were almost a hundred people welcomed to the studio/living room before we pulled in the sign and turned out the lights at just after 10 PM. Thanks to Carmen for watching the door (while knitting) and greeting visitors through out the evening. And thanks to all who made it
here here through the rain.

And now for Saturday and Sunday.

Button Down the Hatches


It is less than a week to the Eastside Culture Crawl. I had all sorts of good intentions to post before now and all sorts of things that I wanted to say. I would say "share" but mostly it is I who reads this blog, but all must stop while I button all the loose ends for the first of my holiday sales. There are not many but that doesn't mean that I can forgo my yearly "nickers in a twist" reaction to stress. Loading pictures in a less stressful activities so it's buttons, buttons

and more buttons.
