art starry cap

i know this is a little late, but how about an artstar bazaar recap, shall we?

i had the pleasure of sharing my tent space with the lovely and uber-talented melanie linder of spread the love and love your invite. her illustrations are so good they give me the happy freak-outs and i really really love the way that our work works together. (i love it so much, in fact, that i'm taking some of her cards to renegade so that you nyc peeps can see for yourself how sweet mel's doodles are!)
as if having mel as a tent-mate weren't cool enough, we got to have our fellow z-town pals karen and sara right next to us. it was great, we got to share sticky-buns and muffins and popcorn and french fries and swedish fish and mixed nuts and pina coladas. we had a fantastic location, the weather was lovely, and i think we all agree that it was a successful event. kudos to megan and erin of the artstar team for all the work they put into organizing the fair -- it went off without a hitch (as far as i know....)!

it was good to see tara (of handmade in PA) and it was great to meet jen (of indiefixx), these ladies have both done some sweet little write-ups for chez-sucre-chez and it's really nice to put a face to a name. i also had the pleasure of meeting sue, of giant dwarf. i have been coveting one of her facinators for months and months and now, because she's awesome and we heart each other (etsy lingo, there) we totally worked out a trade and now we've each got a piece of one another's work -- i've got the fascinator i wanted and she's got a little bit of bunny love to hang in her studio. yay!
love and thanks to grade-school pal amy, and to mom and pop and stacy and sweet baby aidyn and baby bella, and to the k-town posse, and to b for stopping by to see me!

{okay -- in attempting to put this post together, i realize that the photos that i took are total crap, and that the pictures and the recaps that my fellow z-towners have posted on their blogs are way better than what i was working up. check out karen's recap (here), and sara's post (here) and mel's (here).}
