It's time to get the cat fixed, so in honour of Loiosh's soon-to-be-missing parts I'm having a Get the Cat Fixed Sale! 25% off of everything in the store (shipping not included -- I asked the post office to play along and they just laughed at me).
He looks kinda cranky, but really, who can blame him?
Come check it out!

I hope some of you will be able to come to the fair to sell, buy or browse. I would love a chance to get to know you in person!! I haven't had the chance to meet any of you face to face yet.
Gearing up for holiday sales has taken a lot of energy for me and I have been holed-up the last couple of weeks sorting my beads and taking stock of all my materials. I started a few projects, too. I don't know about everyone else, but I should not have more than 2 projects going at once. I get overwhelmed at what to finish first!!
I hope everyone's sales are going well!

It has been a long time since I have been involved in our group, so I thought I would just check in.
I was hoping to find out about some up and coming art/craft shows for the Denver metro area for this fall. If anyone knows of any please let me know.
And for those also interested, I am doing the one at the Westminster Rec. Center in Dec. it is called the Santa Workshop. It is geared towards children and being able to afford to buy gifts for their family and friends. All items for sale are $8 and less. I believe registration is either at the end of this month or the beginning of Sept. I will keep everyone posted.
Also, my job holds a craft show every year closer to the holidays and we are trying to change it up a bit this year and allow outside crafters to join in. It would be one day only on a Friday and there would be a booth donation of $25 or more to join, which goes to a charity that our company will match dollar for dollar.
Hope to hear from some of you soon as the holiday are right around the corner.

It started out rain. Then looked like sleet, but it's been too warm for sleet, y'know? Then the next thing I knew it was hailing marbles and I would have sworn Santa's boys had got confused and were tapdancing on my roof.
Really big marbles.
The first shot I took while it was still hailing -- crouched in the dubious shelter of the balcony half-wall, trying to fit as much of me as I could under my hat, and still getting nailed in the butt by FREAKING BIG HAILSTONES.
The second one? About twenty minutes after it stopped, once I'd had time to get the first set of shots off my camera. TWENTY MINUTES.
Then this happened:
See, I'm from eastern Pennsylvania. We don't get tornadoes. So I was all like, wow, look at those swirling clouds, I wish I had a video camera. That siren? The fire sirens always go off during exciting storms.
...no, dummy, that's the tornado siren.
They don't have those where I come from.
...so yeah, anyway, it didn't actually turn into one, and even though I'm on the second floor and have no basement, I have a plan: grab the rat and head for the laundry room. It's halfway buried in the ground and well-protected and about as safe as I'm going to get. The cats are all in closets and under beds anyway, so they're on their own.
It's quiet now, and Tim has said that the birds are a better predictor of imminent excitement than anything else, so as long as they're still chirpy and happy I'm not worried.
In the meantime, one last photo. This one's for Tim.
...and that's what's happening in my part of Colorado! Anyone else getting exciting weather?

My name is Jude and I am new to the group. I make mostly art dolls and other soft creations. My etsy store is currently empty as I have been busy working in the public sector and not had much time to be creative but my hours changed this week so I now have more time at home so sew. Looking forward to exchanging ideas with you all.

Our shop is a three generation family owned and operated. Sandy, Kellie and Joshua make up QuiteNice.etsy.com. We enjoy creating items that are useful and fun. Our inspirations come from our family, friends and of course, Colorful Colorado. Sandy is a native, Kellie, that's me, have lived here for over 15 years, and Joshua, my son, is a native as well. We enjoy crafting together as a family very much. We live on the west side of Colorado Springs. Our other full time passion is a home daycare, we also volunteer at Joshua's elementary school. Whew...we are really busy, but doing something you love is worth it. We are very happy to be a part of the etsymilehighclub!

My name is Stephanie and I'm new to the group. I live in Colorado Springs with my husband and our 10 month old puppy. We moved here just a year and a half ago from San Diego for the weather, cheaper cost of living, mountains, people.... I could go on. :) We could not be happier!
I love making all kinds of things however jewelry is the focus of my Etsy store,
http://www.bluelilydesigns.etsy.com. I have a website as well at http://www.bluelilydesigns.com. I'm also looking for local shops where I could sell my things and I would love to get into craft fairs.
What else... I'm a systems engineer during the day however I can't wait to have babies!! :) I hope it works out and I can be a SAHM. Wish me luck! ;)
I'm extremely excited to be part of this group and look forward to getting to know you all.

My name is Megan Savors. I moved to Denver recently from Charlotte, NC, and I love it here! In both weather and friendliness it reminds me of the area of PA and Ohio where I come from. What do I do? I make art jewelry and accessories, and sometimes when I get the itch, I sew a bit. Currently I sell my wares through my Etsy site www.artificestudios.etsy.com, but I'm looking for gallery and/or boutique representation. Drop me a line if you're a friendly local artist, or even if you're a mean one who has a suggestion as to where I can sell my stuff!
I have 2 stores on Etsy:
Eventually I'd love to have my items in a brick & mortar store, but current conditions kind of make that hard.
Also, have a blog that I upkeep regularly: www.alisonlove.com/blog
I live in Colorado Springs with my patient Husband, two girls, and three cats. I look forward to being a member of a team with those who are in the same state as well as having as much fun with this group as I do with the other groups that I am a member of.

My name is Melissa Langer, and I am from Louisville, CO. I am an artist who creates Pug and Dog Art. I am inspired by my pug, Emmitt.
You can meet him here on my website...http://www.pugnotes.com/emmittphotos.HTM
I love the Etsy community, and I am very excited to have found your group.
All of my work can be seen and purchased on my website http://www.pugnotes.com
I sell my prints, cards and one of kind fiber art creations in my Etsy store that you cannot buy on my website.http://pugnotes.etsy.com
I am happy to be here! Thank you for having me.
Have a great day and stay warm. :)
I am Amy Kalinchuk, soap maker and now crafty sewer. I plan on offering my sewed items in my etsy shop.
Olde Crone's Bewitching Bath Soap is the name of my other venture. All the soaps are handmade from scratch by me, in my kitchen. I also make lip balm, body balm, sugar scrub, facial cleansing oil, and a facial serum. I sell these things online and at a couple of farmer's markets--Old South Pearl Street and Historic Downtown Littleton.
In addition to these things, I'm an author and publisher, a public school teacher, and a mom. Whee!
Good fortune to all of you in your etsy endeavors!
p.s. I live in Denver.
