Holiday Ornament Workshop

I taught a holiday ornament workshop at the Buttonwood Tree in Middletown, CT earlier today. We had a lot of fun making an ornament from recycled cardboard and pages from discarded books! :)

Last Sat my friend Keka Marzagao shared a booth with me at the 3rd Ward Holiday Market. Good times! :)

Keka was selling prints of her mother Regia's beautiful paintings.

My studiomate Kerrie Yeung (right) was also there sharing a table with Samantha Wu (that's Samantha's sister on the left).

Beautiful jewelry by Kerrie Yeung!

Awesome jewelry by Samantha Wu!

My friend Amanda was also there selling "make your own light sensor theramin" kits! she's in a band called the Drunkard's Wife which is playing tomorrow Dec 16th at 9pm at Trash Bar.

And continuing with the electronics theme... check out some of my friend Luisa's awesome cross-stitched video game buttons! I bought one of the space invaders buttons shown here. :)

Holly Slayton of Artikal was at the Market showing her gorgeous handmade hats.

Pics from the Dec 6th Craft Workshop!

We had an awesome group for the "Green Crafting" workshop with GreenEdge yesterday! It was at the Brooklyn Creative League, which I highly recommend checking out. They have a great set-up!

All of the projects I demo-ed involved recycled plastic bags. The first one we did was the Upcycled Plastic Bag Bangle.

Next we tried a few yummy locally produced wines.

And we finished up by making two styles of barrettes made from recycled plastics. :)
