RCM’s Handmade Holiday

This year the Richmond Craft Mafia and the Visual Arts Center of Richmond are teaming up to present the Handmade Holiday Craft Show, an exciting new holiday shopping event for Richmond.

The Richmond Craft Mafia has put on their Handmade Holiday Trunk Show since 2005, but now our collaboration with the Visual Art Center will expand the show to include other crafters and designers from the Richmond area.

Applications for Handmade Holiday Craft Show will be available online from August 24th – September 22nd. Only crafters and designers living in the Richmond, Virginia area will be eligible (applicants must be within a 30-mile radius of the City of Richmond).

Neat stuff on the web…

I am on the web ALOT. Mostly for business (email, updating my Etsy shop, etc) but I do realize that I am easily distracted by the shiny and the interesting. Some days the ratio of business web vs. distracted/procrastination web is pretty bad but I’m working on it. :-) Today, I found Wordle.

It generates this cool word clouds from your blog, website, or any text you cut and paste into their program. This word cloud is what was generated from my neglected account. Neato!!

I love fabric…

Well, its not like it was a secret or anything. :-) I received my fabric from Spoonflower a couple of days ago. I am extremely happy with the results even though, I messed up the scale and repeat of the designs. The design/repeat is a little too big than what I was envisioning but the fabric is still super cute and the print quality is great. I’m addicted!!! I’m starting to go through old doodles to see if they would translate to cool fabric prints.

The beehive print is the logo for my other crafty endevor I started with my mom for an upcoming product set. Gotta love etsy, since I found Henry Rabbit, one of the grooviest logo designers on there.
