I Won't Lie. I Can't Hide It.

The South End Open Market is opening next month and I'm super excited. The crafty people who run SOWA also operate in Providence and at the Mashpee Commons. I've been looking into booth rates and they're really not that bad considering the exposure you'll get. I've never been to any of the open markets and I'd like to get some imput from those of you who have.

Upcoming Shows, Festivals, Fairs & Classes

Every month, I'll have a list of the current and upcoming shows, fairs, festivals and classes in the Cape Cod area. I'll only be listing one month out, otherwise the list would be 8 pages long! If you'd like to add an event that's not on here, please drop me a line.

Travel To The Far East

Totally different from our Rockstar line, these Far East themed cards make me want to find a quiet corner somewhere and reflect on things. I love the colors and designs. These cards have a white base with matching envelopes. I decided to go with a textured cardstock this time and it finishes the cards off nicely. There are four up for grabs in the store and I plan to add more within the next few days. Keep an eye out for scrap paper packs with this theme as well!

Rockstar Themed Cards at IssueGirl

I was lucky enough to score the rockstar cardstock at an amazing price so I scooped up as much as I could. At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to create with it and I'll admit, it sat in my tote for about a month or so. Then the card making bug hit me last week and I've been crafting up a storm. I've already sold five of them and as much as I'd like to keep them around because they're so damn cute, they need to go.

All of my Rockstar themed cards have an ivory base with matching envelope. They are sealed in a clear cello envelope for extra protection in shipping or can be kept in to give as a gift. The cardstock is high quality and many of the cards have silver or gold foiled designs on them. I've added glitter to the card you see here (Guitar Rockstar Card) and also to the Smile Gorgeous Rockstar Card to give them that little something extra. My favorite card has to be the Deathly Molecules Rockstar Card. The design is a basic hexane ring but with small silver skulls making the connections. I've been thinking about making it into a t-shirt design for all of us science geeks! You can check out the store here.
