(Self Portrait: Me turning into a Cotton Monster!!)

Thanks to all who came out for the Holiday Heap show last Saturday...If you missed it, don't fret, Squidfire is hosting a show Sunday December 7th at the Lyric Opera House, where I will be with a table full of Cotton Monsters! And to those of you not in Baltimore, don't fret, I'll be doing another Etsy update before the holidays!

Can you spot the Cotton Monsters?

I'll be there with a heap of Cotton Monsters along with over 50 other crafty vendors from Maryland and beyond.

Opening week....

So there are two upcoming shows this week I'm involved in....

One in good ol' hometown Baltimore Maryland: Thursday November 6th from 6-8pm, there will be an opening reception for my Eyepiece project which is installed in the Minstallation Gallery at the Creative Alliance. The Minstallation Gallery is literally mini, measuring 16" deep with 14" tall ceiling. Below is a sneak peak! And here's a little write up!! The opening is also for the new main gallery show Magnolia Laurie & René Treviño: Destructive Behavior, which should be fantastic! Both shows will be up through Dec. 20th, so if you miss the opening, you'll have plenty of time to stop in and see the work over the next two months!
The other in San Francisco: Plush You Two is another shop show, this time at Double Punch (1821 Powell StreetSan Francisco CA) Opening on Friday November 7th, and will be up through Nov. 30th. I sent off two little Cotton Monsters to this show where they will be in good company amongst tons of other soft handmade creatures!
