Gift Fair and Family Festival November 25-27, 2011



On November 25-27, 2011 I was one of the vendors at the Albany Institute of Art and History Museum. I sold a lot of items and met a lot of the public and made lots of new customers and fans. I am so thankful I joined the Gift Fair and Family Festival for those three days. I have had a few people write requests for more items to be made and I am thankful and appreciate your comments and suggestions. I do work a job full time so I make my crafts when I am not at work or at lunch or breaks at work. I might be making things on the side for a customers or might see me at a future craft show or on Etsy.com in future weeks. 

Some items that are being sold at the Museum Shop @ the Albany Institute of Art and History Museum.
Those items are jewelry, and ornaments.  If you are not able to pay the museum entrance fee to get into the museum you can enter first Friday of every month is free admission to their galleries from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

Here are some photos taken by the Museum on flickr of that Lego Challenge weekend.

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Children age 12 and older, teens and adults are welcome to attend. If your a beginner or at a higher level I can provide teaching and have the time to work on projects that are simple or that can challenge you.

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.
