Wut. Da. Fuq. This is a major breakthrough. It's only taken 7 years. Honestly I think it's because I've been monopolizing the warmest spot in the house. Little old Phoebean must be desperate to be THIS close to @klaus_von_hayden
Just some things I'm super excited about. Loving the chance to make things out of clay again. Lots of ideas pulsing through my brain. Learning patience when it comes to this medium- when to carve, when not to. I'll get there!
When my dream job with bennies disappeared after 12 years, I jumped into freelance and although I enjoyed it, a household run by two self employed incomes was a nightmare. All the money I was making was going to insurance premiums. I upped the ante with some extra cash from indie craft shows, and in the beginning hustling was fun. In the end though, I began to resent creating as I was at the whim of what I could sell to pay my bills. I sold my soul to the 9-5 corporate devil and shut down creatively so to speak. I just want to say thank you to @jessedaino for recognizing my need to create for the sake of creating and getting me Clayscapes classes. I have always been fond and wistful of the handbuilding I did when I was in college. I had my first class last night and everything came flooding back to me. I am looking forward to the weird creepy shit I will come up with, without a care in the world to hawk it at a show.
My view at the @thesweetpraxis craftsmas pop up with @cayetanovalenzuela and @inkandwit. Come check out some amazing artist's wares and enjoy everything this snowy day in downtown Syracuse has to offer!
Dear instagram. It's a cold crisp December day in Syracuse with lots of fun activities planned in downtown Syracuse- this being one of them. Come buy my wares, half off! I seriously want everything gone so I can focus on making some new things. #syracuse#sweetpraxis#praxiscraftsmas#popup
What a cool night. Tacos. Christmas music. Chasing the auroras. First pic was the best display as it was the whole sky and sadly taken on the highway where we couldn't pull over. Second pic is the column my sister was able to catch in the city. Last pic was us chasing that column to Jamesville, where it shifted- so so faint before the clouds rolled in.
This Saturday December 16th from 1pm to 6pm there is a really awesome pop up happening at the @thesweetpraxis. I have been out of the game for awhile but have a nice stock left (not everything'spictured). This equals a half off sale to you fine folks! Small prints for $5 and large for $10. Rings for $3. Necklaces for $10. Pins for $3-4. I'll have a few fabric buntings for sale at $12. The cute animal jars are $4. Come buy my stock so I can make new things! #praxiscraftsmas#popup
