This and That

A few items of note (to me) to mention ...

First of all, after many months I've changed my blog header. And I used Picnik, but no fancy stuff. I'll be going back with some other images to play, play, play. But for now I have a new header.

Next, there's a new shop in town. Fort Myers town, that is. Savvy on First is expanding and adding a second location on Cypress Lake Drive (9405 Cypress Lake Dr., Ft. Myers FL 33919 (Opening Feb.1)). I will be one of the 200 artists featured in the new shop. I've stocked some onesies, handbags, coasters, and baby layette items. This will be the first time, since Ditto Kiddo closed, that I'll have any of my items in a brick and mortar store, I have no idea what to expect, especially with a new store, but I'm hoping for the very best. I spent some time with Lisa, the owner, today and the shop is going to be so exciting. She's got some terrific ideas and some great merchandise. If you're in the area, either downtown Fort Myers or the Cypress Lake/McGregor area, stop into Savvy for a peek.

On Saturday, February 4th the Alva Community Park will be having it's first Annual Craft Show, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Admission is free. I will be there peddling my Because I'm Me wares. This is the first craft show I've done since River was born, I think, so I'm a bit disorganized and getting a little nervous about being ready in time, especially since I have a whole booth to fill and not just a smaller table. I don't think it'll be hugely busy, but it seemed like a good opportunity to do some networking with other crafters and artists and since I didn't have any other plans I thought I'd give it a shot. If you happen to be in Alva, Florida on the 4th of February, stop by and say, "Hi."

And now I'm off to work on binding a zig-zag quilt.

  1. Is there a Savvy downtown? That's really awesome that your stuff will be in it. It's no secret that the Fort is growing fast and I believe it's culture is actually starting to show, so I'm sure your creative stuff will be a big hit!

  2. Joey, I agree, except there is still a huge issue with parking. It stinks. We were there days before Christmas to savor the scents of the Naples Soap Co. and almost left in frustration because we couldn't park. Thanks!!
