A Tentacled Trend

Thanks to all who stopped by to support Art Carnage at The Soundry last Saturday...what an awesome night of shopping and entertainment! It was great to see some familiar faces, and a lot of new ones, too!

Despite the bitter cold and ice, The Soundry was packed! Yes, those parking spots were worth the wait.

Nadine from Simple Girl Designs had her booth across from mine. I like how she paired tags bearing words like "kindness" and "amore" with her vintage-inspired jewelry, influenced by 1940s-1960s fashion.

A number of vendors were discussing a current craft trend, for sale on several tables at the event -- octopi. "It's this year's owl," said Cara Salvatore of Dopo, referencing last year's popular item.

Dopo's handcut paper modern art includes an octopus design.

Sweet Chloroform sporting felt octopi -- and owls, too!

We're already gearing up for the next Art Carnage, to be held the evening of February 26th. That day, Melissa Lew will be holding a series of seminars for the career-focused artist/crafter. Check out The Soundry web site for further details.
