Mid-February Creativity

Leave a comment

Well, it’s the middle of February and I have been neglecting this blog a little bit.  It’s because I have started to get quite busy.  Last weekend was the Silverlake/Art/Craft/Vintage.  I had the pleasure of getting to spend the Market with some other friends who were vending and it was a fun day!  Chalay makes cute and funky jewelry and Mary has some great artwork/prints/cards/ and journals, along with fabric coffee filters that are environmentally friendly.  Silverlake seems to be a challenge.  It’s a great venue, but somehow it doesn’t seem to have great promotion and everyone that I spoke to was disappointed with the attendance.  Mary and I are going to try and share a table next month and downsize our wares to make it more worth our while.

I am very busy crafting away to get ready for a surprise.  I can’t share it with you until next week, but here is a sneak peek at what I am working on.  This first softie is huge at 30 inches high and is affectionately named Lumpy.  He is quite special really!I have also created some foxes!  Good thing the aren’t stuffed yet, because I’m certain that they are full of mischief! 

Today is all about raccoons.

We have tickets tomorrow for America’s Got Talent.  It should be interesting.  It’s only about 15 minutes away from us.  We have to wait in line for an hour, then watch it for 5 hours.  I can only imagine the scenario.  Oh, and we are not allowed our cell phones.  I have no problem with not having my cell phone with me.  I did it all the time when I was a kid.  Except when I was a kid, there were payphones everywhere.  Now they practically don’t exist.  Anyway, I can’t bring my camera, I am not allowed to  talk about what I saw, but just use your imagination…

Happy crafting day to me!  Happy Birthday to my nephew, he’s four years old today.  I sent him a stuffed wooly mammoth(I didn’t make it) and an Owly graphic novel.  He loves those.  I can’t believe he’s four already!  Gotta go, my sewing machine is calling!

My name is Jenny Smith and I am a Teddy Bear Artist. I have a need to be creative many hours per day. I am currently living in West Hollywood and my Canadian blood is enjoying the sunny warmth of Southern California. When I am not sewing and creating, you can find me, running, working out, writing, drawing, reading, gardening and attending the occasional flea market.
