Product shots and maybe a head shot or two are all that she wanted but I convinced her to pose for this photo illustration with her tossing her yarn in the air. I couldn't resist, and she loved the final result!
If you can't make it tomorrow night, that's ok! The show will be up until May 5. For more information, visit our event website here.

I needed a small mirror and card case so I had to go with these two colorful items from Stitchy McYarnpants. Pancake mix! (it says that on the back. So cute).
Looking at them makes me happy.
Working in the gallery was so much fun for me; I loved spending time with other artisans and also connecting with shoppers who love buying handmade. This year we have a bunch of cool new exhibitors, you can find a list of them here.
The store will be opening the day after Thanksgiving, November 26, and will be open Wed-Sun, 11am to 7pm until Christmas Eve. I will be there on the 26th and several other dates in the next few weeks so you should definitely stop by and say hello. Oh yes and buy stuff too!
As great a day as it was, it totally wiped me out. Catching up on sleep tonight; tomorrow I will post pics from the awesome couples portrait shoot I did on Saturday.
We'll be at 460 Harrison Ave in the South End from 10am to 4pm. For more info and to rsvp, please go to our event page on Facebook, hope to see you there!
Even from the shore, the heat from the fires was intense; we were lucky it wasn't a really hot night. In addition to the fires, there were singers stationed around the canals, gondola rides, and even a few living statues. There are still a few dates left this season to catch Waterfire; I highly recommend that you do!
It's summer so that means JP/Centre South's First Thursday events have been in full swing and this Thursday Boston Handmade (and I) will be a part of it! Join us at the Artisan Fair on the lawn of the Loring-Greenough House (12 South Street Jamaica Plain, MA 02130) from 6-8pm on Thurs, August 5.
The show will consist of more than 25 locally grown artists, artisans, and craftspeople will be showing and selling handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, ceramics, art, photography, handspun yarn, vegan soaps, handblown glass, and more, in Union Square (at the intersection of Washington, Prospect & Somerville Ave.) on Saturday, July 10, 2010, 3-7pm, with a rain date of Sunday, July 11.

What am I talking about? Last year our group, Boston Handmade, essentially borrowed an empty storefront in one of Boston's shopping districts, Downtown Crossing. We were open from Thanksgiving to Christmas and it was a huge success! We set it up just like a gallery/boutique and it quickly became a must-stop shop during the holiday rush.
Here are a few pictures from last year from Jess's flickr page:
