I just started up my twitter account, got moving on linked in and I am opening up my etsy shop. All are under the name Art in Bloom. Etsy needed "designs" to be added to the shop name. I can't believe all this great stuff to learn! :-) I will have some new stuff to post shortly.
Happy Halloween!

Find Art in Bloom

I am looking forward to so many Fall events around Tampa bay.
The weather is finally cooperating and it is a joy to be outside.

Next Sunday in the A.M. only, I will have my booth set up at Congregation Beth Am, on Fletcher Avenue.
If you stop by the Holiday Fair, come say hi to me.

On October 23rd I will be at St. James in New tampa.

I will post photos from these events.

Last weekend at Keystone United Methodist I met the nicest knitter. And since i definitely cannot knit , I was most impressed by her cute scarfs and hats in college colors.
They also had the incredibly delicious brownies sold by the church ladies. Yummy and only a dollar for 4. Yes, i admit, i ate them all in on day. Again, i say yummy!
My tent held up even with the breeze so those spiky things were great. Last year I had my tent blow over at an event so i was excited to see if it would stay standing.

Have a great week! I'm off to make some crocheted dreidels for this weekends event!

A Seacreature Birthday party!

I finally finished the sea animals and the "1st birthday" party i created with them. I designed the animals and the products. My client wanted the turtle to be the main character on the items.  She even let me know she bought her little boy an outfit with turtles to wear at the party. Such a cute idea. I love having such supportive clients who let me have the freedom to play and creat something just for them. so here are some photos i took before delivering them.
