Block Party

I always love hearing about local artists and events.  I found out about a local indie craft show tomorrow called the BLOCK PARTY hosted by the Handmade Brigade of Orange County that will showcase a lot of local artists who specialize in all things handmade.  If you have time, come out to downtown Santa Ana at the FIESTA Marketplace and take a look around to see all the  70+ local vendors.

As I was perusing the website, I found out that this group doesn’t fit your normal, run of the mill, granny type crafters, but rather features an eclectic group of artists.  I was definitely intrigued by this hidden gem.

If you have time on Saturday, definitely check out the Block Party!

An Early Halloween

I had such a blast at the art walk last weekend and met such amazing people. One family in particular stuck out to me because the whole clan decided to come out and enjoy the Santiago Art Walk together from the baby in the stroller, to the teenage oldest brother and of course the amazing parents who brought them all in tow. It was a pretty big family.

They were perusing my displays and apparently one piece stuck out to them.  They were immediately drawn to the glass orb with the Halloween pumpkin inside. The oldest son asked me how much it was and without hesitation he immediately pulled out the cash to purchase this piece.  I could’ve said it was a $1000 and he would’ve still bought it.  To be honest, I was at first a little confused as to why they wanted the pumpkin of all things, but when I asked why they liked that particular piece, he told me that Halloween was a special day for his parents because they were married on that day. He wanted to get it for them as a gift. I was so completely touched by what the son did for his parents spontaneously just because he loved them and knew what it would mean to them.

The whole family was oohing and ahhing over this simple ornament that I had made just to have as a “Halloween” piece for my portfolio, but for this family it meant so much more.  After they left my studio, it made me think about how beautiful and blessed they were.  You could completely sense how much they all cared for each other and how much all the kids loved their parents.

That family left an indelible mark on me and gave Halloween a completely new meaning.

So to that family, I say thank you and Happy Halloween!

These days I’ve been mainly focusing on my classes, however, I’ve been able to squeeze in some time to create some cute small arrangements.  I usually have some leftover clay flowers and it’s such a waste to have them lying around so I took one day to create a bunch of petite flowers cups! It looks so tiny, but anyone who has taken my class knows that a lot of care and time is usually taken to make something even as small as this. Here are just a couple of the ones I made.

I love my job =)
