Open House Tomorrow!

Yep - its finally here and Deb (from Merciful Hearts Farm) and I are ready to welcome you tomorrow beginning at 10:00. We'll be around all day until 6:00, so please stop by for a cup of cider, Christmas cheer and fabulous-handmade gifts.

Come on down to Pendleton Street Arts District and follow the signs to Kyle's Studio. (For those of you who are GPS dependent, plug in 25 Sturtevant Street.)  We're only one block off of Pendleton Street, extremely close to the Art Bomb!

Here's another sneak peek at the 2011 Famsterville Calendar and for clarification, this the "master calendar" - the take home version will be a printed version.
 If you can't make it tomorrow, and you'd like a calendar - just let me know!  The pages measure 8" x 8" and they're clipped together with a cool metal hanger - I'll put a finished product picture out tomorrow.  Price is $15 each, plus shipping.  More details to come!

A famster named MICAH

THANKS to all of you who stopped by my booth at the Indie Craft Parade. Your encouragement and ideas are truly inspirational and help me continue on with famsterville!  I really appreciate your support - it means more than you know...

MICAH slips out he back door and down the stairs to feed the geese.
(Where, oh where is this historic spot?)

He's looking for a good home, preferably one with crafty folk.

Actually, Micah has already found a good home,
but if you're interested in a similar look - I have a few to choose from.
Visit me this Saturday at the downtown farmer's market or contact me via email.

Famsters will be back on ebay, and will ship domestically and internationally.
We're going GLOBAL.

Mother of All Famsters!!

I bet you're wondering what has happened in famsterville this week.  Well, we've been snipping and stuffing and stitching to our heart's content.  Multi-tasking is non-existent in our household but the daily blog will resume next week - I promise!

We're almost ready for the Indie Craft Parade TOMORROW! We'll have over a hundred famsters and their younger siblings on hand. Here's a sneak peek at the gargantuan famster, Attilla.  She's slightly sensitive about her size, so please don't stare... The doors open at 6:00 and it goes until 9:00 tomorrow night.  On Saturday, its 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Huguenot Mill (behind the Peace Center) - be there or be square - see you there!
