Craft Show Season 2011!

Craft show season officially kicked off on April 10th with Craftopia. I should have blogged about it before the show, but time has been flying by lately. As with last year, it was a smooth kick off. It was a lot of fun to see everyone again, and also to meet some artists whose work I get to sell at Craftland. Thanks to the Craftopia team for a well organized and successful show!
And waiting for me when I got home, incredible braised short ribs. So delicious!

Cork Board!

Yesterday I finally finished the cork board I was working on for D's office. We decided to try and snazz it up by buying a frame and putting all the corks within the frame. I think the finished edge of the frame looks nice, but the drawback was that the corks didn't all fit as perfectly as I would have liked, so there's some open space. Still, I try to remember that paper and stuff will be tacked up onto the corkboard, so I didn't need to go too nuts.
I went with a border of regular corks, and the inside are bubbly corks. Delicious to do all the cork gathering, and I think the end result looks good. Should spice up a corporate office, don't you think?
