Remember when it was 2015?

Yeah, back last summer when I was still attempting to blog?  And then life happened as usual and we went on vacation, we planned and had our bathroom and part of our kitchen redone, R started soccer, and then he started school!  I went back to work 5 days a week, slashing my creative time to nothing.  BUT I did start a new position at work and it's been fabulous.  I trained and ran in 2 5K's.  There has been a lot of adjusting.  I was in two other art fairs last year, and I was in two galleries over the holidays.  It was a good year for me.

This year is starting off just as busy.  I am already prepping for my first art fair.  I've applied to 3 this year, and have heard back and been accepted into Spring Bloom in Bloomington IL again.  I loved this show last year.  It is a one day show and it's super early this year, Saturday March 12 from 10 to 4.  It is in the Brown Ball room at ISU...which is a new venue.  I'm upgrading my booth this year to display my copper tile series.  I am just as smitten with this technique as I was last year at this time when I was developing it. 

Have I mentioned that my website is live again?  www.crymsonflower.com is up and I have a gallery of all my copper tiles on the site.  I haven't and I'm not sure if I will, put the tiles on Etsy.  But if anyone is interested in a tile, email me and I can send you a price and we can go through there.  I still have my Etsy shop, and right now plan to keep it with my flowers and ornaments. 

This space will probably be pretty quiet.  My hope if to post pictures of pieces as I finish them.  But if you want to see the pieces come together, and see them as soon as I finish them...follow me on instagram.  I post flower pics, beading pics, flaming copper pics, life pics.  I enjoy that platform most.  You can find me @crymsonflower

Both of the pieces in the pictures are on my work table and in progress.  Exciting flowers are being made in 2016!

Wow! You have been totally industrious. I have told you before that I am quite impressed. Do you sleep at all? Great with the art show. Sounds like a lot of fun. And I have just opened your instagram page. We might meet there. :D
