Getting ready for Crafty B's...

It's that time again: Crafty Bastards, the city's biggest handmade craft fair sponsored by the Washington CityPaper and powered by Hello Craft. This is my favorite event of the year because it also features live music and activities all day.. It's not all just crafts for sale. Last year there was a haircutting booth, arts/crafts demos, a fashion show and of course their annual b-boy/breakdancing contest which draws huge crowds..

This year's Crafty is on Saturday 10/3 from 10am-5pm at the Marie Reed School grounds in the center of Adam's Morgan's bustling 18th street. (18th btwn Florida and Wyoming)

here's a sneak peek of what I have 'cookin' at the studio. Come by my booth early if you want the best selection of ties, scarves and tops!

Gold Leaf Studios featured in Washington Post Magazine ::

Gold Leaf Studios in downtown DC (btwn Union Station and Chinatown) is where I do all my work. I'm lucky to share a huge, sun filled studio space with two awesome artists, Sarah McLaughlin (not the singer) and Nick Pimentel. There are lots of other artists and musicians who work in the space and a few of them are featured in an article that will come out in this Sunday's Washington Post Magazine. There's also a cool accompanying video piece. check it out!:
