bright & festive at Fiesta 2016!!!!
at 10:11am on april 23, 2014 this little fella made quite a grand entrance into our world. he was very comfy in the nest he had created in the previous 9+months arriving "only" 13 days past his due date. BUT, boy when he decided he was ready he came fast and furious in under 2 hours from 1st contraction to birth. one minute i was making pancakes for lucy and the next minute i was in full tilt labor. it was pretty damn incredible. our midwife gb khalsa barely made it with only 15 minutes to spare before he officially arrived. chris was incredible and had everything under control but at one point i had to lay with my chest down on the bed to stop the contractions or he probably would have arrive before she got there. i still can hardly believe it, and what a sweet sweet boy we have. thanks so much for picking me to be your mama, boden redding campbell. i couldn't be happier to be the one who gets to love you forever, along with your amazing big sis. i am one lucky and grateful mama.
i used doterra essential oils during most of my pregnancy to prep for labor and delivery. i didn't learn about them until i was almost 3 months pregnant, so from 3 months to full term and then some :/ if anyone is interested in what i used please just send me an email and i would be happy to share information with you and what worked for me. i am certain the doterra oils helped me have a very smooth, quick delivery and fast recovery.
chris and i are beyond words excited to be expecting a baby in august. most days i really can't believe it until she reminds me with a swift kick in the belly :O) we just found out last week we are having a girl. i am psyched to have an excuse to steal away and relax in the pool this summer to beat the austin heat.

my friend melanie and i have been laughing about using the term hawesome for haw (handmade austin women)!!! haha!! melanie is one of the other main coordinators for the show....hawesome....cheesy, yes!! but we just can't help it. with all the long hours of planning the event i think we have the right to coin "hawesome" in the midst of our deliriousness. planning a show (even at this small scale) is an immeasarable amount of work and at times feels like a full time job. having said that, i love being part of this show in every facet. i love everything about it from the artists, to the details, to nerdin out on my computer organizing the logistics. AND, after all the planning it's about that time to just enjoy.
the handmade austin women show is saturday and sunday, 11am - 6pm on may 1 & 2 at ginko studios in east austin. 800 gullett street, austin, tx 78720
the 5th annual HAW spring show and sale will feature an eclectic array of work including ceramics, collage, photography, mixed media, jewelry, clothing, and for a little something extra, massage therapy. also, to appeal to your senses there will be a well rounded mix of happenings throughout the weekend including : marionette & ukelele performances, some funk & roll music by guy town, a mix from dj lovecat, treats and delights from hope & glory pastry and cornucopia.

wishing you a festive and peaceful holiday season filled with
friends, family, love and laughs,
it's official....i am retiring the beaded tail detail on the clasp of my necklaces. my new neck pieces will have a completely new and different clasp. i have some ideas that i am experimenting with now and i'll let you know the outcome as it reveals itself. i currently have a limited number of necklaces with beaded tails. so, if you love those little guys on the clasp then now is the time to scoop em up :O)
these are fun all collaged together...maybe they'll have a new identity in their next lifetime.
hApPY hAPpY!!!! my copy of the 500 plastic series: a groundbreaking survey of a modern material book arrived today...featuring two of my pieces. YaY, it was such a nice surprise to find that waiting for me at home when i arrived. the book will officially be released in book stores in september. there are so many amazing and inspiring pieces in the book...i am giddy-full-of-glee and honored to be placed aside such phenomenal pieces/artists. i have had polyurethane on my list of materials to experiment with for about a year now... this book is just the inspiration i need to buy some polyurethane and play!! i will list a few of my favorite pieces in the coming days. YipPy!!
i just found out last night that these two pillow pieces of mine: green pillow brooch and strawberry tiered pillow bracelet, will be featured in the book titled "500 plastic jewelry" by lark books. they should be printed this summer and in the book stores by fall of 2009. i am thrilled beyond words!!
