It’s certainly the most wonderful time of the year… The trick is, you just have to avoid the overly busy shopping places and the cranky hubbub. That’s right… You don’t have to stand in line at big corporate stores to buy mass produced gifts. No, you can be selective and creative in your shopping. This is how I do my gifting (which keeps me cheery). I buy from fellow local artists if I don’t make it myself. I like to be merry and full of the creative holiday spirit, don’t ya know.
This was my table at my friend Nicole’s Mt. Tabor Holiday Open Studio. It was a fantastic weekend… my big seller, as always, was my hand drawn, unique Copic Marker pinback buttons. But there were lots of other things that sold… like magnets, zines, cards and matted art.
If you visit Sidestreet Arts on 28th & Ash in Portland (OR), you’ll see new matted art, new magnets, Christmas cards, buttons and more. And you could always contact me with questions or visit my online shoppe. Meanwhile… happy holiday-ing! Don’t forget to be jolly.
