new york

On our first night in town we had dinner at Panna 2 with friends to celebrate Meghans birthday. It was so funny today when we were shopping in the east village we turned a corner and bumped into the whole gang again!

Friday we did a little supply shopping and found some great vintage goodies.

beautiful store windows!

Finally getting the rest of these Baltimore images posted. This was the view from our hotel room,very cool.

On the second night of BMAC they held a party for us at the American Visionary museum,this place is amazing!

Got my fortune told inside the museum's gift shop.

It was so quiet at the show most of the time that several of the ladies jumped in the aisle for random dance parties. What was especially funny to Bryan and I was that the music they were playing for these dances was from a Hallmark sound card!!!

Show is over and the booth set up is packed up and we are ready to enjoy an evening out with our booth neighbors Nina and Brian from Hightail studios.

and the celebration began!

Buyers Market of American Craft

Hello, Im blogging from Baltimore,MD. this evening. Bryan and I are here doing the Buyers Market show through Wednesday. Think our booth turned out really nice,at least we've had lots of compliments on it and we've noticed lots of other vendors popping down our aisle to have a look. It's nice to see friends here at the show and to make new ones too! Day one was really quiet, that can be very frustrating but part of the deal sometimes. we are hopeful that most folks were just walking the show today and will be back tomorrow to place orders.

We were a bit annoyed to find out last night that our hotel doesn't have free wi-fi, who doesn't offer that anymore! so, im enjoying a latte and brownie at Panera right now.

more tomorrow from Baltimore

Baltimore here we come!

We got new postcards and line sheets printed up and our crate just got picked up and is on its way to Baltimore for the BMAC show.

it's so exciting to see a big truck pull up and load your crate( a few neighbors even came out to see). Last year when we did this for the first time we felt really nervous/sad to see that crate being loaded up but this year its just plain exciting!

Roger Goes to the Circus

The Etsy Metal group plays along with the tv show Project Runway each season. This is my project from the first episodes challenge. On the show each person used an item from another players suitcase and created a garment, so we all traded scraps from our studio with one another to create a new piece.

This was a super fun challenge. Please have a look here to see my other team members projects and also a picture of the scraps that I was given to create from!


Bryan and I went to Poppy in Columbia,Missouri over the weekend. What a nice surprise to see that our Citybird necklaces were used as inspiration for some paper birds that they made for their current window displays. How cool is that?!
