As we say goodbye to Summer…

Seems like fall has come early this year…the leaves are already starting to turn. We are sad to say goodbye to summer, but look forward to a beautiful fall. The cooler weather opens the fall show season for us, starting with the Paradise City show in Northampton, MA the weekend of October 11-13.

And as soon as we are done with that show we make our way to Northport, Alabama for the Kentuck Festival of the Arts on October 18-19. Treat yourself to extra amenities as a Patron of the 2014 Kentuck Festival of the Arts. Details about becoming a patron can be found at www.kentuck.org/festival_patron.html.

I am honored that the folks at Kentuck chose to use one of my JunkHeads in the patron pamphlet.

And now it’s back to the studio to continue to make things to bring to these shows. We look forward to seeing you at Paradise or Kentuck.

Of giraffes and owls

This summer my nephew, John, is getting married and he and Katelyn asked if I could make their wedding cake topper. Katelyn loves giraffes and owls and so that was the starting place and from their bits of their life were incorporated.

This was a fun project and it turned out better than even I expected.

How much is that doggie in the window?

At the beginning of this year we added an online store to our website at www.ArtheadStudio.com/shop … and so, on April 15, 2014 we will be closing our Etsy store. You have a few weeks to check out what is in the store and snap it up before we close the Etsy doors for good.

Going forward we invite you to take a look through the window of our new online store, and like Patti Page, you too could be singing “How much is that doggie in the window?”  Bookmark the new store page (www.artheadstudio.com/shop) and come back often as we are adding new stuff all the time.

Leave us a comment and let us know what you think of the new store.

Man Finds Fabergé Egg Worth $33 Million on His Kitchen Counter

Faberge Egg

My dream each time I go to flea markets, thrift shops & estate sales is to find that one gem. Imagine having a Fabergé Egg as part of the clutter on your kitchen counter for years and having no idea what it was?

Portlandia, Cheese Doodles & Robots

I am excited to announce that we started 2014 by launching our new online shop (www.artheadstudio.com/shop) which is now an integral part of the ArtHead Studio website.

On cold winter days in New England, when I have not been on snow removal duty, I have been in the studio creating lots of new things for the shop and preparing for my first big show of the year — the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore.

Here’s a sneak peek at what I am bringing to Baltimore!

If you are a fan of Portlandia, as I am, all I can say is “Put a bird on it!”
