Upcoming Indie Craft Parade

Looking for Christmas presents yet? Well. . . even if it’s a little early, you won’t want to miss this event. 75+ artists and craftsmens will be displaying fabulous work at Indie Craft Parade in Greenville, SC!

Even though Paul and I moved to Virginia this summer, I am grateful to be participating again this year.

We will be thrilled to see our Greenville friends at the show. So please stop by! New Virginia friends, if you are not able to come, you are still invited to browse the list of venders on Indie’s website and make a shopping list to send with us.  No joke. Or you can contact artists directly. I already have a little list in mind, like handmade soap from my former music teacher’s company, The Herb Garden, and jewelry from 17 Dove Street.

I used to do a lot of drawing and painting in college. . . but somehow it got pushed out while I was exploring fiber art. Sad. But, it’s making a comeback in my repertoire, alongside more fiber art!  It has been fun, though work sometimes, making these past few weeks. So take a look.  Some of these are in process. The Creator has so many fantastic ideas. . . I tried to highlight a few with my pieces.


If you remember to bring a note pad (ok–or an ipad), you will probably walk away with ideas for your own creative ventures in addition to your new treasures.

Hope to see you there!


I’ve inherited a parade of flowers in my Virginia Beach yard this summer! Several new ones surprised me this week. I’m taking as many pictures as I can with the hopes of painting a few!

. . . just hope I can keep them alive and coming back next year!

Glad to be back

Yes- it has been 2 years since I’ve blogged! Since then I have married Paul Keew and been spending my time learning to be a wife and enjoying many new family members and friends. I’ve found “house-y” things can be mundane sometime, but also full of creative possibilities- so, though I didn’t give up on making art, a lot of attention went to figuring out cooking, decorating, entertaining, and loving my husband. I’m enthusiastic about blogging again, especially since Paul also has a blog and can help me navigate it’s workings. (I’m not very tech savvy). I hope to post mostly about art, but might throw in some recipes or other odds and ends when I get too excited.
