In other news, Cutesy but not Cutesy will be on vacation from June 19th to June 29th to visit a friend who has been teaching in Shanghai, China for the last year. A trip to the Great Wall is scheduled amongst other once in a lifetime sightseeing opportunities! However, when we return, it's all business again with a line up of craft shows, websites, and new monsters to come! Stay tuned!

Cutesy but not Cutesy will be making an appearance at the Crammed Organisms shows in St. Louis. There are four different venues and four different weekends for this GIANT plush show. Somewhere in the crowd are Cutesy but not Cutesy monsters! If you're in the St. Louis area, you should try and hunt them down! And take pictures! :)

I'll be packing up the remains of my inventory from the Craft Bazaar and taking it down to the Appel Farm Arts and Music Festival in Elmer, NJ. I have never been to this, but I have always heard good things...especially about the music. I am looking forward to seeing how different (or similar) it is to the Craft Bazaar in Philadelphia. I am not sure what to expect and I don't know how many people the festival draws in...it will certainly be a learning experience. It is supposed to be hot and sunny, perfect monster buying weather! I look forward to hearing There Might Be Giants if nothing else. More pictures to come upon my return!

It sure has been a long time since I have had the time to update my blog, but what better to start with than the Art Star Craft Bazaar photos from this past weekend? The Art Star turned out to be a great success despite the looming clouds and tornado watches on Saturday. Sunday more than made up for the bad weather on Saturday with perfectly clear skies and a wonderful (sometimes blustery) breeze.
I, unfortunately, didn't have a chance to wander around the fair myself but to make a quick, quick purchase from the lovely My Paper Crane. However, I did get to meet many wonderful crafters who wandered their way over to my booth.
It was wonderful seeing the looks on people's faces as they wandered by my colorful table. This has to be one of the best parts of selling in real life rather than just online. If only I had counted the number of people who immediately gave my monsters personalities and voices and made them dance for their friends.
I look forward to more events like this in my future, this being my first one of this kind, and I, of course, look forward to next year's Art Star Craft Bazaar!
