ah summer. we are in it's throes here in the sacramento valley, and apparently all along the pacific north west. i don't know about you guys but my electric bill is literally on fire but *sigh*, what can you do? i know what we have done is take full advantage of local swim spots, and our proximity to the ocean! :) trust me, it helps.
along with the season, we have summer craft shows which are a little like a sado-masochistic exercise if you ask me! vending on asphalt on a "spare the air" day of triple digits is just...well, a labor or love i suppose! so far, there are two ongoing events i have done and loved a lot, and will be doing for august and september: 2nd saturday @ park your art by mcmartin reality and 3rd saturday @ design downtown put on by the sacramento news and review. look for me there if you are in the area and love supporting your local DIY/craft scene.
in other NFB news, my website got a mini-face lift and i am loving it. if you haven't gone lately, please check it out! neverfeltbetterbyjen.com
i have listed a new group of vintage fabric soldered pendants, along with fabric "feather" and bird headbands--cute cute! also, i plan to donate a portion of fall/winter sales to the farm sanctuary.

happy summer! and it is setting off with a quiet bang for me here at neverfeltbetterbyjen.com central! i have two craft shows back to back this month, july and it is a trial by fire since i haven't done much in the way of vending for a few months and feel a bit rusty. but, i am ready to begin again and along with that i got some new graphics for my site and etsy shop (you like? i love!) and am having some different tweaks and wallpaper coming mid-july that i am really excited over. it is a good thing!
here are some recent new items for the site, enjoy! please check back for more vegan "feather" headbands and fascinators...ready to be sewn in my little workshop as we speak LOL.
