Sorry I've been absent lately, I've super busy working on things "behind the scenes" here. I've been working on articles, trying to get into new schedules, and working on getting everything completed and together for my upcoming show.
There sure is a lot of work that goes into a solo exhibition- designing postcards and posters, press releases, artist statement, signs, sketching show layouts, marketing, prints, deciding on details, etc., etc. I feel like I'll need a month long vacation after this!
In February, once the opening is done and over with, I'll have lots of photos to share. I have multiple shoots booked in TN, and will have stuff from the opening of course. But until then, here's a few "behind the scenes" shots of what I've been working on...
Thanks to Katrina for helping make the new glittery "BSC" banner, Jason for the faux window frame, and my mom for sewing the curtains!
I've had "make sweater clip" on my "to do" list for awhile now, but I haven't been able to find the type of clips I wanted to use. I finally settled withe these three materials: chain, cat buttons, and a "fashion fit clip" (those are the clips with the elastic attached that people would wear on the back of their vests in the 80s... that's all I could find at the craft and fabric store, so I cut the elastic off and used the two end clips.) They grip on to the garment without hurting the fabric, and are easy to get on and off. Sweater clips were worn often mid century. They are great for holding sweaters or shrugs on without having to have them buttoned, or even actually on.
I like the way these turned out, but hope I can find the clips at some point I am envisioning in my head so that I can make another set without the large oval loops.

First of all, a huge Happy New Year to you! I hope your 2010 was great and hope that 2011 is even better!
Since it's a new year, it's time for a new shelf... The house feels so bare with all the Christmas decorations gone. Since it's too early to put up Valentine's decorations, I had to come up with a non-holiday theme for the empty wall shelf. I guess I was inspired by the letter "C"... cats and cameras it is!
Items included: vintage kitties (x 5), salt and pepper shakers (x4), vintage cameras (x4), framed image of vintage camera, cat nesting dolls, hand-sewn vintage kitty pillow (by me when I was a kiddo), ceramic 3-headed kitty, vintage "friend" camera (a novelty), other items (x4).
