Show Update-Feed Your Passion For Fashion

I am sad to announce that Sprite Creations will not be at Feed Your Passion For Fashion Art Fair this evening.
I've not recovered as much as I'd hoped from this darn cold and so I must bow out of this fabulous show.

That said... please do drop by The Shops At West End for the Art, the shops, the Fair and so much more!
It should be a fabulous event!

In the meantime:
We'll see everyone this weekend at Lake Harriet Spiritual Center and Pagan Pride!

Bits and Bobs....

Hello Everyone!
Just a little update on all sorts of things!!!
I've been dabbling a bit in all sorts of things this week! A little resin, a little drilling, a little wire-wrapping, a little glueing and it has been fun!!
I have two Steampunk tie tacks to show you in a few moments. They are part of what I've been creating as well as single post Steampunk earrings, Serenity necklaces and more!
As you can tell, I am definitely on the mend from the cold that knocked me out of the Bean Factory Artist Market on Saturday. Boo! Hiss!! I was so disappointed to miss it, but feeling well is a good priority!

Before we head on to the photos, I just want to remind folks of two shows in the next 4 days that I'll be at!
The first is Feed Your Passion for Fashion at The Shops At West End in Saint Louis Park, MN, USA. This is still scheduled from 5 to 8pm tomorrow evening. We're all watching the weather reports closely and it looks like there are some alternatives to the expected heavy rain, but I'll keep you posted if there are any changes or postponements!

The second show is Pagan Pride at beautiful Lake Harriet Spiritual Center at 44th and Upton in Minneapolis, MN, USA. This show runs both Saturday and Sunday and is indoors so will be VERY difficult to rain out!
I hope to see you at one or both of these!

And now.. those fabulous Steampunk Tie Tacks or Cravat Clasps as I've termed them!

An Update!

I've been a bit slow on the updating lately, but that's because there is so much going on!!
As I've mentioned, I've been changing out Creation Locations and have two new locations to introduce to you!
The first is for the more Northern MN folks as it is located in Mora, MN.
Bread N Honey Pantry is a lovely cafe, organic/whole foods and alternative health products market, exquisite boutique is located right on Main Street (actually Union Street) Mora. It is chalk-full of goodness and is locally-owned and operated by a single parent! If you are in the area, it is worth the visit to stop in!

The second location is BellaLuna Boutique in Minnetonka!
This beautiful boutique is full of hand-made goodness, wonderful stones, candles, books, incense, statuary, and so much more!! If you are searching for a unique gift for yourself or a loved one, this is highly recommended!

I am sad that I haven't had a chance to snap any photos of my new creations so I can proudly show them to you! My creations lately have been on the Steampunk-ish and Fae end of the the spectrum and I've had so much fun with them!
Look for wrenches, keys, beautiful glass, lovely hand-dyed fibers, one of a kind chains and more when you have a chance to visit me at one of my shows!
(hint! hint!) hee!

And now, back to the studio!

P.S. I came home last week with two bells in the shape of a baby chick and an owl! I've been carrying them around with me and a giggle every time I hear their chime through my jacket or in my bag!
PPS. WAIT!! I snapped a quick photos of those fun little bells for your viewing pleasure!
Aren't they adorable???!

I've had so many changes in these past few weeks that I've had difficulty blogging about it all! This week, in particular, has had many hours away from the computer! I've been shuttling hither and yon, closing down Creation Locations, investigating and fostering new Creation Locations as well as lining up more shows and various projects. Whew!
Let's look at a change overview!
First up, Creation Locations!
For you folks near Deerwood, MN, USA, the Knotty Closet is now closed for the season. Look for it to reopen in May of 2011.
Cambridge, MN, USA folks! Sprite Creations is no longer at Willow Bridge Center. Please contact me if there was a Creation that caught your eye there that you MUST have! Feel free to check out the fabulous Bead Shop at the Center, Deb runs an excellent shop and it is worth the stop to see all the goodies!
New Creation Location in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Metro area!!!
If you are in or near Minnetonka, MN, USA, drop in for a visit to BellaLuna Boutique LLC. Gail is co-owner of the boutique and a delightful soul! This shop is full of unique and thoughtful gifts, including Sprite Creations!

Sprite Creations will be returning for the Fall edition of the Bean Factory Artist Market at the JS Bean Factory in Saint Paul, MN, USA! Saturday only, September 18th, from 10am to 8pm. The Bean Factory is an independent coffee house which serves up an inviting, comfortable atmosphere. Come on in and be surrounded by art whilst nomming on tasty treats and wonderful beverages!

Sprite Creations is proud to be part of the inaugural event Feed Your Passion For Fashion! Sponsored by The Shops at West End as part of the Taste of West End and Local Art Fair, this show is Thursday, September 23rd from 5-8pm only! The Shops at West End are located at Freeway 394 and Hwy 100 in Saint Louis Park, MN, USA.
There will be fabulous food, fun and shopping! Stop by for a visit and to see the new digs!

And in honor of the Feed Your Passion For Fashion Show, I present these earrings!
They are not, as yet, titled, and comprised of Victorian era mussel shell boot buttons (from Muscatine, Iowa!), metal vintage boot charms, chain and surgical steel earwires.

Stop on back to this blog next week for more updates!! There is so much more to tell!!!
