I know there have been a lack of updates on the website for the past couple of months. Things have been super duper busy on the home-front. Of course there was the start of a new school year for my lil’ man, the family and I moved (and are still living out of boxes eek!), all the while still trying to restock for the busy market season.
This weekend looks to be one my busiest weekends of the whole year…so far! First off we have the Undead But Not Unloved Art Show at the East End Studio Gallery on Friday. Next up is the Discovery Green Flea on Saturday. Then, finally we’ll be set up at the Houston Halloween Fest & Horror Con at Minute Maid Park on Sunday. More information on these and all other markets we will be participating in are posted at this location.
Once things finally start getting back to ‘normal’ (whatever that is), I should have a few new designs to show!
I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news:
First the bad news…unfortunately because of something that came up this weekend, CultGrrrl Creations will not be able to participate in the first Watershed Market in East Downtown Houston. I was really looking forward to this event but as the saying goes “stuff happens” *sigh* :/ I am going to try my hardest to still stop on by the event and would highly suggest everyone else does as well, because it looks like they have some fun times planned.
Now the good news, CultGrrrl Creations was accepted to participate in The Market @ Mid-Main on Sunday, April 6th at 10am-4pm. I will have a few new goodies made just in time for the upcoming spring time holidays. I also heard they will be having a quick workshop for the kiddos making Easter egg garland *wink, wink*
Also, I just got word that we were also accepted to the ever so fun and exciting Pop Shop Houston : Indie Design, Art, and Music Festival on Saturday, May 3rd & Sunday, May 4th! Pop Shop Houston has ALWAYS been a good time! Can’t wait
As always, more information on these and other markets/craft fairs CultGrrrl Creations will be participating in can be found at this location…hope to see everyone out at one or all of these events!
It was a really productive weekend over here at the CultGrrrl Creations camp. Aside from finishing up my latest creation, I worked on a few things that have been on the back-burner for a little while now.
I decided that it was time for a re-do of the look of my booth at markets. One of my main annoyances were my table cloths. I have been using these really cool purple fitted bed sheets around the table with a black cloth accent on top…which worked for a while but this made it hard to move my tables in various layouts. I purchased this really inexpensive zebra stripped fabric to go with this purple fabric I already had and made an actual covering fitted just for my table. I’m pretty proud of myself, seeing that I don’t know how to sew (except for the whip stitches I use to put my dolls together HA!).
Next up, I’ve been wanting to make some bunting to go in front of my tables and came up with this little beaut.
Another thing I’ve been wanting is a way to showcase my cupcake containers. I used some good ole’ Mod Podge to adhere some left over purple cloth to a dollar store plastic serving tray and voilà!
Apologies for the cruddy phone photos but I promise to take better pictures once my booth is set up at my next market in a couple of weeks
I’d like to send out another THANK YOU to everyone who made it by my booth at the May edition of the Discovery Green Flea! I was thrilled to see a few familiar faces and meet a lot of new people. I had a headache from hell because of my killer allergies and hope I didn’t make a bad impression on anyone :/
I was able to debut my brand spanking new 10′ banner, YAY! I was so pleased with the way it looked set up
Fyi, we will be set up again on June 16th between 6pm-10pm. Note the new hours…the organizers are looking out for everyone during Houston’s hottest season. Speaking of the organizers, they have recently set up a new Discovery Green Flea Facebook page – www.facebook.com/DiscoveryGreenFlea. Be sure to ‘Like’ the page to keep up to date on all Flea happenings
I’m happy to announce that CultGrrrl Creations will be a part of the Discovery Green Flea in Houston, TX on Saturday, February 18th and Saturday, March 17th! More info on both of these markets can be found at this location. Hope to see everyone there
