Self portrait :: Craft room renovations

This might be the.... fourth time I redecorated and rearranged my work room since I moved here. It's only been 2 months?
Maybe I'm weird but I think its actually fun and super relaxing, especially when I'm blasting the Rolling Stones and the children (dog&cat) are napping on the couch.
Also, can you please notice the length of my hair? Holy shit. More pictures are due, I just need to edit them.

:::: Some news ::::
I'll have a table at Eskell's Holiday Bazaar this Saturday. It's from 11am to 7pm and it's right dab in Wicker Park, only a few stores down from Urban Outfitters. I'm excited for it's location! Wicker Park is a super hipster shopping area and neighborhood in Chicago. It's fun. It's always REALLY busy, and it seems to just keep getting busier. So I'm crossing my fingers for good traffic day! I know it will be a blast. I'm really sort of anxious for it. Pre-craft show jitters. Only because I'm like AH, IS EVERYTHING TAGGED, DONE, IS THE DOG HAIR OFF, DO I HAVE ENOUGH, I NEED BAGS. yep.

 ::::: Here's the info from the gal's at Eskell :::
Join us and Chicago designers, Laura Lombardi, Shades of Grey, Mineralogy, Red Head Prints, Lady Faye, Bird Trouble and more, for this one day shopping event at Eskell. Designers will be selling merchandise that is not currently available at Eskell. This is a perfect opportunity to stock up on jewelry and trinkets for your loved ones this Holiday season! Shop for others and shop for yourself. In addition, the entire Eskell Fall 11 collection will be 30% off. Spirits included! We hope to see you Saturday. xoxo, Eskell

  1. oooohhh, what's inside those little drawers!?? I *really* want to rummage!

  2. Neat space. Good luck with your stall! I hope you sell lots of bags & get lots of exposure!


  3. I need to do a mass reorganization of my craft room too. I've lived in my apartment for a few months and it's just not right. I'm thinking about painting!

  4. this picture is so great!!...i feel like its the picture that goes with your bird trouble crafts book. ;)

  5. I'm going to try and come see you, but my brother-in-law and sister-in-law will be here this weekend. Maybe I can convince everyone to go with me...! I'll keep you updated. Either way, you'll do great and it'll be super fun! <3
