September is kicking off in a BIG way. I have so many exciting updates to share!
First of all – Mucho Más Art Studio!
Opening a physical art space has been on the bucket list for decades. I never thought it was feasible because I feared the overhead costs. But you know what? Since when did I ever let fear hold me back from other projects. And this space came about at the perfect time, with the perfect people, for the perfect price.
My friend Emily Costello and I had been selling our art at Galeana39, and when the space opened behind that shop, the owner (a longtime friend of mine) pitched us to the owner of the property and she signed us on! Here’s a tiny picture of what the space looks like as of today. But tonight it will be transformed into a Mexi-bohemian escape! We’re having a “soft launch” opening tonight for First Fridays, we’ll be saying hi, hanging art and setting up the space. We’ll have an official big grand opening next month! We are located in the McDowell Market property, which also includes Palabras Bilingual Bookstore, Galeana39 and Shug’s Coffee!
As far as what we’ll be doing there – it will be a working studio space, my new YouTube filming area, retail sales of our finished pieces, plus art workshops and so much more. Right in the Central Phoenix area, actually, it’s called the Miracle Mile area. See more about the Miracle Mile Merchants here!
Fair Trade Cafe Art Show
Patrick has a big show up at Fair Trade Cafe through September 24th, and I have a few pieces in there as well! We’ll be there tonight from 6-7, before we head over to Mucho Más Art Studio.
This is a fabric collage piece I had at the Mesa Arts Center and now it’s gracing the walls at Fair Trade!
This is a project that has been in the works all summer and we finally got it launched! I’m going to be a Sun Frog ambassador – they have a HUGE offering of shirts designed by artists from all over the world. Patrick and I pulled some designs together and are working on more!
Here is where you can see our two collections: https://www.sunfrog.com/craftychica
Fresh mugs out of the kiln – and a new painting! See our store here!
New Facebook live and YouTube Live!
I’ve decided to REALLY kick up my livestream game. Last night I did both a Facebook Live and my first ever YouTube Live! I’m giving away some collage kits, but you have to watch the video to see how to enter!
These are the cards I made for the sessions!
And these are the little collage kits I’m giving away!
Alright, I have to get off the computer now – I have to go get ready for the events tonight! Thanks for reading through all of this!
Before I go, I want to share an awesome fundraiser that some of my Texas friends are holding. These are people who are going through the trauma of the aftermath of Hurrican Harvey, but are still making time to help their communities!
If you buy a shirt today – make it one of these. One $20 shirt will provide 100 meals for the residents of Corpus Christi who are in need. And there are plenty of them. Here is the link: http://bit.ly/2evazMM
Happy Friday to everyone! Sending many blessings to all of you!Love & light,
