Sunday Best Holiday SALE

If you are in town you need to come to this! I will be selling my goods along with many other talented local designers. And the first night of the show is Friday, with free hot cider and the option to spike it with a little, YES PLEASE, consider mine spiked. See you there.

ON SALE...Pillows!

I have some cute new pillows in the shop- all 20% off until November 28th at midnight.
These make a great gift! Regularly priced at $36- sale price $28.80. That is a little bit insane.
Who agreed to this?

I want!

I am obsessed with these Cathrine Holm Norway bowls and kitchen items...swoon!
You can find a bounty of them on Etsy.

New in the shop!

My Anna Joyce Textile Collection tea towels and napkin sets have arrived and are ready to give (or keep!).  I am really excited about the way that these turned out- I am way into the yellow and gray.
I am also proud to say that they are hand made and hand printed from start to finish here in Portland, OR. You can pick some up for yourself right here.

 Also- pneumonia update! I am recovering, and after round two of antibiotics my lungs are clear, whew.

Anna Joyce Textile Collection!

Oh, this has been so many months in the making I can hardly believe that it is true- my fabric is printed and I have textiles with my design on them! So great.  Each piece has been hand printed here in Portland on beautiful linen with water based inks- so pretty.
Right now I have pillows and table runners, but by the end of next week I should have my napkins sets and tea towels ready to sell in the shop as well.  All of these products are made in a very limited edition, so if you like something, snap it up now!

That is Sergio working on one of my napkins- warm gray trimmed in a beautiful hot yellow- swoon!
I also have a new friend in the studio- my new Bernina 800 serger- his name is "Sergio" and according to Angelina he has a major crush on my sewing machine Bernice- cute. He is of course from Modern Domestic- the land of all things Bernina. Love me some MD.

Sick, oh and tired.

I have had pneumonia all weekend (and probably for about a week before that, but just went to the doctor last Friday) and spent the entire weekend in bed. I have not been flattened by an illness like this in years. But this morning I am finally ready to attack all of the work that has piled up. My first holiday show (Sunday Best at the Ace Hotel Dec 2nd and 3rd- such a good show!) is less than 4 weeks away, Crafty Wonderland  is the following weekend (Dec 10th & 11th) and I teach every weekend leading up to both events.  And lets not forget the children... If I think about all of it I will just go back to bed. So instead I am going to work as hard as I can (without making myself sick again).  I need to just be grateful that I am able to make art and spend time in my studio and be a part of the amazing art and craft community here in Portland...Yes. That is what I am telling myself (as I feverishly try and do 3000 things at once, be a good mom, not ignore my wonderful husband, make food... the list goes on.) Send some good cyber vibes my way will you please?
