The Must Have Item(s) of the Day.

Etsy seller soop creates these really unique acrylic rings in the likes of forest animals and trees.  You will find sheep, deer, goats and rabbits just to name a few, that can adorn your fingers and they look best when you combine the animals with her tree rings.  My favorite is the Red Squirrel.  

It's that time of year again to spruce up our yards with new plants and it's nice that there is more of a variety of planters to choose from besides the usual brown and green plastic containers.  I especially like the ceramic Mynta hanging planters from Ikea.  Luckily for me I live a short 5 minute drive to the Houston Ikea and plan to check these out soon.

Today I Want To Talk About....

How About Orange, the blog from designer Jessica Jones.

This blog is by far my favorite to read and I have to admit I am a bit obsessed with checking it daily for anything new Jessica may add. For the two of you that read this blog you might remember a previous post discussing the mouse pad I purchase from her. She posts everything from really cool websites for products and resources, and links for free patterns and DIY projects. 

You can find Jessica's work for sale in her Etsy shop and you can also find the fabric she designs over at JCaroline.

(I actually made a bag from this fabric last year)

My First Art Market!

I'm really excited about selling at my first market this Saturday, March 7.  It will be held during Heights First Saturday on 19th Street in the Houston Heights.  The Yale Street Art Market is held every month on the first Saturday.

I will be sharing a tent with Amie Needham from A Punkin Card Company.  This will be a nice way for me to ease into selling one-on-one and see how the set-ups and tear-downs go.

Wish me luck!
