And… It’s November!

Many thanks to all who kept my shop humming for Art Walk on October 26 and First Friday on November 1! I appreciate the conversation, the encouragement, and of course – the $upport!

Last in, first out… I had just finished making this small collage with a page from an antique 
book, vintage typewriter parts, and a vintage clock face, and it sold first on First Friday!

Special thanks to Anne Glaze for lending a hand for Art Walk, and for artsyletters regular Kim Poovey for all the help on First Friday.

With my partner in historical and literary mischief & artsyletters
Chief Creative Promotional Officer, Kim Poovey.
I love happy customers!!

Thanks for reading along! And Happy Novembering…

*Hurricane Days*

We are safely away from the shore – hope to reopen soon after the storm!
Appreciations for all of the emergency management folks, power crews, and other helpers.
Prayers and wishes for safety for all along our coast, and keeping those in the Bahamas close in thoughts. They will need continued prayers and tangible help for some time.

July Open Studio Hours

(*UPDATE*: 7-15: well, now I’ve gone and fractured a bone in my ankle. Not sure when I can resume regular hikes up the stairs & regular hours, but I hope soon!! Thanks. See above for latest! )

(UPDATE:  The studio will be closed July 11 & 12 as I will be traveling out of town for a funeral. We’ll be open several days during Water Festival – look for the sign out front. Thanks!)

Happy JULY! I’m busy in the studio & will open this month for FIRST FRIDAY, July 5, 5-8 p.m. Then, hours will be on the flexible side, with some extra open days during WATER FESTIVAL! :0) See you soon!

Beaufort’s First Friday 5th Anniversary gets 15 Minutes of Fame!

I was thrilled artsyletters was the Spotlight Business for First Friday this month. And icing on the cupcake was this TV coverage from Lyndsey Gough of WTOC in Savannah! Enjoy a taste of the celebration. (Ignore the windblown hair!) Link and pictures below.

Rhonda and Bernadette from the City of Beaufort had no trouble finding takers for the yummy “5th Birthday” cupcakes!
(Had my own special sign and everything!)
