Well, this has been a really busy last few weeks! We’ve had Retro City Fest, our first, First Friday Las Vegas show, Tempe ComicCon, Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and now we’re gearing up for Las Vegas Toy Con at the end of February!
Let me start by saying thanks to Kirsten, Jasmine and everyone else who works for the First Friday Las Vegas Foundation! It is a really well organized and well run show! Load in and load out are super easy considering how busy it is! I would definitely recommend participating in this event to my other artist friends. Also, if you’re in Vegas on a first Friday, it’s something fun to do while you’re down town. The artists and makers are amazing!
Tempe Comic Con was tons of fun! So much awesome cosplay. The volunteers worked their parts off! I personally think that we got the best one! Clayton, you ROCK!
I think my favorite CosPlay was Demogorgon.
Lots of new boxes are going up in this shop and on our Etsy shop!

My raw materials come to me in lots of different ways.
I have friends that save me parts and pieces of things, people bring me things they found on vacation or on a walk.
Most recently we were over at our friends house for the weekly “stuff our face and dungeon crawl Sunday”. There was a sizable box on her kitchen table. I looked inside; it was FULL of wee metal tins filled with even smaller mints. They were from a promotional products company. I asked her if she was going to do anything with them. She wasn’t and gave them to me on the condition that her kids keeps the mints.
So, for the next 10 minutes my friend and I studiously emptied fifty odd tins worth of tiny mints into gallon ziplock baggies.
It was a win/win. She got to keep her candy and I got art supplies!
I will say the mints were delicious, though…you know…quality control and all that.

Boo for forgetting to actually have the earrings that we posted on IG available on Etsy! Well, they are now! 🙂
At the end of the year, (and show season) not only are we pretty much sold out of everything, but we find that we’ve gotten a little forgetful. All that being said, this is probably one of our favorite times of year. Not because it’s Christmas or the holidays or anything of that. It’s because it’s the only time of year that I can take a whole day to develop a new design or piece and not feel rushed.
I say all of this like I don’t have ANY deadlines coming up. I actually do.
We have quite a few upcoming events:
