The weather has -suddenly- turned cooler and more seriously toward Christmas. With that in mind, I am honored that A Show of Hands with be hosting a trunk show in a few short weeks. This is a wonderful opportunity to get a jump on your holiday shopping with the best selection at the beginning of the season.
I will be showing my usual suspects- funky patchwork purses, little recycled bags and polar fleece reversible hats. However, I also have challenged myself to create a few new pieces, such as comfy shawls, more unique hats and perhaps true artwork bags. Who knows! You'll have to come by and check it out.
This is a great chance to get introduced to A Show of Hands, and the neighborhood of Del Ray, if you aren't familiar with it. The shop, which opened its doors nearly 3 years ago, carries almost exclusively local artists. The variety of offering is astounding! From fine ceramic platters, brightly colored glass pitchers and knitted hats to dip mix and precious gemstone jewelry, there literally is something for everyone. This trunk show will not only highlight my own work, but it would be a great time to pick up a truly unique item for the hard to please person.
Please join us for this very special event that I am so looking forward to!

Green Tip~ Compost properly.
The fall is a great time to start a compose pile. As you rake and clean out your yard and garden, these plants can be the beginning of a new adventure. I personally don't know much about it, but you can find a huge amount of information online.
This website will show you how to do it from scratch. The Compost Warehouse will sell you a fun machine to help with the process. Happy Composting!
