Upcoming Craft Fair and a Giveaway!

Hi all! I have been invited to sell at a little local craft fair in San Francisco on July 24th:

It is held in Jack Kerouac Alley, right next door to City Lights Booksellers, and it sounds like a really fun mix of vintage, craft, and food vendors. I will be sharing my table with the talented Miss Aubrey Hebert, and she will be selling little original watercolors starting at $10, and other little works of art too! Click on the picture above to check out the fair's website and get more information. If you happen to come by and tell me that you read my blog I will give you 25% off!

I have been in the mood to do paper crafts lately, and I recently purchased the book Handmade Weddings from Chronicle Books, and it is so wonderful - great color palettes, projects, and tons of ideas that can be used for way more than just weddings. For the craft fair I am making owls (of course), but they will be special ones (you will get to see them soon), and possibly loop scarves and fabric flower hair clips/brooches. The rest will be paper crafts, including bunting cake toppers, mini notebooks, and moustache straws, which I was working on last night:

In celebration of my paper-crafty mood I have a copy of The Art of Paper Jewelry by Marthe Le Van to give away! There are so many amazing how-to's in this book, and I love the fine art features as well. To enter the contest all you have to do is leave a comment here, and you will get another chance to win if you mouse over to my sidebar and Like my Oh the Cuteness! Facebook page. I have been meaning to set it up for some time now, but you need to get 25 likes to get the simple url to give out to people. I will announce the winner in one week, good luck!
