Artists & Fleas, Dec. 6 & 7

Just a quick announcement, since I need to get up super early to VOTE and should therefore be in bed already.

I'll be vending at Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg BK Saturday, December 6 and Sunday, December 7. I've got new stuff up my sleeve, mostly involving paper. Plus more pouches and a fresh batch of wallets, which I haven't made in a while.

So swing by, say hi, have a cup of coffee with me, do some holiday shopping (at my or anyone else's station). I'm pretty excited to take part in A&F again with all the super-talented vendors there.

Check out for info and directions.

Happy voting!

Unplanned hiatus

Yes, this blog still exists! And I plan on writing here more often and finishing my shop this spring. I've had the busiest few months here in Haasomeland and have taken a bit of an internet break. Not that I haven't continued to read blogs, but I've greatly cut down on them and have used the time to focus on other areas of my life and to help me reconsider the kind of crafty person I want to be.

And that person is: more organized and focused; more disciplined; more selective and refined; and more vocal and expressive. Haasome's gonna be bigger and badder.

First, that requires moving into a new apartment later this month. Rebudgeting. Rethinking how and with whom I spend my time. Then I get a nice kick start by participating in another Hearts & Crafts Affair in Greenpoint in May. Nothing gets me going like a deadline and with my refound sensibility, I think I'll come out of April with a lot of great new stuff.

I've hesitated so much coming back here to write, fearing I'd look like an unproductive slacker who keeps promising she'll do things. Then I remembered that I wanted this blog to be about just that: misadventures and imperfection and addressing the more-common-than-normally-talked-about time when the creative well dries out or you lose the bucket or you just don't have the time because you don't have the luxury of making crafting anything other than a glorified hobby. All while still celebrating awesome craftyness and the part of me that will never ever go away.

Plus I keep thinking about a couple crafty tattoos but DAMN my fear of needles...

Stay tuned; I promise I'll be back!

The Hearts & Crafts Affair

In between travel, catching up and welcoming a new cat into my life, I've managed to get myself into a holiday craft fair. Huzzah!

What's so great about this one is that it's at a cafe with known-to-be-amazing coffee. So it's indoors, and tables are provided. I love indoor fairs. Rather, I hate carrying and setting up tents. This isn't the first Hearts & Crafts Affair at the cafe either, so I assume it's gone well in the past. How can it not, in a nice cozy atmosphere like that?

Okay, enough blabbing. Here are the deets:

I've got new stuff in the works. Come see what I've got up my sleeve!

Artists & Fleas

Hey New Yorkers, if you find yourself in or around Williamsburg, Brooklyn this Labor Day Weekend, stop by Artists & Fleas on N. 6th Street. I'll be there both Saturday and Sunday from noon to 7pm selling my wares. Mellow Being and I are splitting a space, woo!

In case you didn't know, here's what Artists & Fleas is all about, in their own words:
Artists & Fleas was established as a weekly marketplace to bring artists, collectors, designers and anyone seeking a place to play show and sell together in a non-intimidating retail environment to network, sell and get feedback from shoppers and fellow creative folks...

Part community gathering spot, part hipster haven, Artists & Fleas has hosted almost 1,000 artists and vendors since opening its doors...

With new vendors every week, guest DJs spinning, an occasional guest appearance from a musician, visits from neighborhood characters and regulars, Artists & Fleas is as much a weekend destination for shopping and selling as it is for hanging out, checking out and chilling out.
It's my first A&F experience selling and I'm pretty excited. Come by and say, "Hi!"

Artists & Fleas is located at 129 N. 6th Street, between Bedford and Berry Streets.
