is the only phrase that comes to mind when I think about life in the past couple months. It has been insanely full, but balanced, which I am happy to say I am getting SO much better at :D
Anyhow, Makers Arcade was this past Saturday and it was AMAZING! So many fabulous vendors and a community of people who love & support small-local-handmade makers!! A big THANK YOU to all who came out and to Rebecca & Jen for organizing such an incredible event.
Okay! And now onto the next!! I get to be apart of two more shows before the end of 2014 and thankfully they’re both right before Christmas!! SO, if you’re local, be sure to stop on by!! (Show prices are always better than online prices, and often better than the stockists!!)
The first show will take place on Sunday, December 7th from 11am-5pm on 32nd & Thorn! I will be sharing a booth with the ever so lovely Thread & Arrow, so come and say “hello”!
The next event will be at Blind Lady Ale house on Sunday, December 14th from 11:30-4pm and Blind Lady.
And now, it’s time for bed. I am fairly certain I will be in a Turkey costume most of the day at Trader Joe’s… which means I dance almost the entire day…so I have to maximize the Zzzzz’s. See you around!!
I am pleased to announce that Grey Theory Mill will be selling at Makers Arcade on November 22nd!!
There will also be a plethora of other neat handmade makers selling their awesome wares too!!! (Rais Case, Thread and Arrow, Mr. B’s Luminaries, Make Good, and Colleen Townsend to name a few!!)
To view a complete lineup go to www.makersarcade.com and check out the Holiday Fair Maker’s List :)
The market will be held in Downtown San Diego at Moniker Warehouse from 11am-5pm and has a PARKING GARAGE!! :)
This will be an event full of great food, neat people, fun things to do, and awesome stuff for purchase!! I hope to see you there!!
So, if you didn’t already know, I’ve worked at Trader Joe’s for a little over 6 years and have been doing signage for TJ’s for 5 of those years. Needless to say, I’m not too shabby when it comes to chalk art!
Anyways, when Urban Craft Camp approached me about teaching a Chalkboard Art Workshop I was beyond excitement. Yes, I love to make make make, but teaching is one of my passions, so my friends…I feel like I get to have my cake and share it with a bunch of rad people too!! The workshop is taking place on Saturday, October 11th and still has a few spots left!! You can sign up at www.urbancraftcamp.com
In the workshop I will cover creating chalkboards out of recycled and new materials, design & composition, layout for several types of boards, basic lettering, and an overview of the tools used for both chalk pen and chalk art. There will be delicious refreshments including a Bloody Mary Bar & goodies to take home to boot!!
When: Saturday, Oct 11th
What time: 10:00am – 12:30pm
Where: Moniker Warehouse, downtown San Diego
Includes: Chalkboard, Chalkboard art kit, refreshments, goodies.
OH! And I get to make all sorts of example things!!
Follow me on instagram @greytheorymill to get fun sneak peeks before they’re all set up at the workshop!!
