just a few days shy of the real start of spring i thought i would dust off this blog and try to keep it at least SEMI-updated!

there is a lot going on with ! first off, i am signed up for the entire season (mar-oct) of 2nd saturday's down at mcmartin realty's *park your art* .

this saturday, march 20th i will be doing one more installment of this time at the california museum in downtown sacramento. admission is free and there are quite a few awesome vendors selling, so please check it out! make a day of it with the kids...i haven't been there so i am excited to see what it's all about. i have a ton of vintage fabric pendants two-fer sale, and a "winter clearance" bin on crocheted scarves and scarflettes.

i have been working on more bird headbands, and some pint cozies (as always made with vintage fabrics and felt!) along with more soldered pendants. i was down for the respiratory count for almost two weeks with bronchitis the last time i tried to solder anything. i have to be really careful about having enough and proper ventilation when i do the soldering--the flux fumes are really nasty. i really love to make a little workspace outside and now the weather is turning lovely i will have more opportunity. breathing is important...and i don't like taking it for granted! :)

i am updating my packaging a bit for earring cards and goal is by next month's 2nd saturday to have a new look going on for both packaging and display. i am on the hunt for a new display piece for my pendants--they aren't getting the attention on the table they deserve.

happy spring and i hope to post come great pictures from the indiesacramento show--it's going to be a good time and hope to see you here if you are local!

oh and i want to make sure everyone in sacramento knows about my friends new ALL vegan cafe called sugar plum vegan. it's sacramento's first all vegan cafe/bakery and it just opened this week. it's on kst between 23rd and 24th and the hours vary but generally around 8-8. check the website for details and specials! support your local vegan business and tell them jen from neverfeltbetter sent ya! :) melissa sugar is rad and a force. support her!
