I’m back at this wonderful 4-week long shopping event, held at The Linc Shopping Center, in the Marchesa Hall and Theater 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. It’s open 7 days a week, 10am to 10pm through Dec 24th and I keep my booth chock full of all of your feto soap favorites!
Kicking off the first of my holiday shows with the De-stash Bash Arts & Crafts Garage SaleSupplies only, no finished products at’s Tom’s Austin! Seems like fabric is the big winner this year, but can you really ever have too much. PLUS we will have everything from Japanese quilting fabric to vintage barkcloth. I’ll have bath & body supplies, packaging and displays.
Hey lovelies! It’s that time of year again when I make the short trek to my hometown, Houston for the Winter Holiday Art Market at Winter Street studios this weekend! Here’s a peek of what I will be bringing:
Wow you guys! Between my little table at SXSW Create (in the Austin Mini Maker Faire booth) and my workshop at the SXSW Renegade Craft Fair, we made over 500 custom nail polishes together! You guys are amazing! I loved seeing all the colors and combinations you came up with! Many thanks to Roni, Dallas, Moira, Maria Felix, Avery and Mariah for all of the help I had at my booth during the three-day show. It was great to meet you all!

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be at Cherrywood Art Fair from 10am – 5pm today at booth #82. My other show, the Violet Crown Arts Festival was cancelled for the weekend, so Cherrywood invited me to exhibit at their fair again this year.
The funds raised through the Cherrywood Art Fair go towards the CHULA League + one of my favorite programs that I had the pleasure to be a part of this year, the Little Artist, Big Artist Program.
Little Artist/Big Artist pairs East Austin students with professional artists to experience the creative process from ideation through commercialization.
Mentored by a Big Artist, the Little Artist creates art, along with a journal of the experience. Little Artist works, along with selected art by the professional artists, are displayed in the spring show. One work by each Little Artist is auctioned at the prestigious Cherrywood Art Fair each year on the second weekend in December.
Houston is my next stop this weekend. I’ll have my beauty products galore + my custom nail polish station setup at the Winter Holiday Art Market alongside many other talented artists.
Then I’ll be setting up at the Blue Genie Art Bazaar after I return & selling at the Austin Renegade Craft Fair at the Palmer events center.

Come and see me at the Round Rock Market Days located in Downtown Round Rock (just north of Austin) this Saturday! I’ll have my fall scents out like Pumpkin & Pepperberry, and you can also check out my fall colors of nail lacquer. My glow in the dark polishes are especially fun for halloween!

I’m not just a vendor at Cedar Park Farms to Market. I’m an avid supporter of slow food and eating local. At market this week we picked up duck eggs from Countryside Family Farm, a container of Fromage Blanc from Mill-King Market & Creamery – I topped a piece of cornbread I had with it and some strawberry preserves, veggies from Johnson’s Backyard Garden: Carrots, Kale, Rainbow Chard, Brussel Sprouts, Green Onions & a pound of shrimp from K&S Seafood. I’m going to make shrimp scampi with Kalyn’s Kitchen’s recipe tonight for a potluck for a friend that is visiting from the Far East!
Hey guys! I finally uploaded my first video today! What do you think?
This is the first video I’ve ever put together! Monica held the camera on me on a windy day at the farmers market while I helped Xavier make his soap. He had already picked out his toy, color and fragrance when we stared rolling and I showed him how to use a color wheel to make orange.
It was cold and windy on Saturday, so we were all bundled up! There’s a live band every week at the Cedar Park Farms to Market, so thanks for bearing with me with the sound quality for my first video!
I spent Saturday morning at Cedar Park Farms to Market where Erica & I made soap at the booth. It was Erica’s first day. She had fun making soap with the very excited kiddos! The adorable little girl in the pink told us that she couldn’t wait to go home and use her strawberry scented horsey soap.
If you would like for me to make soap with you and your group, just let me know! I would love to teach them how to make soap in Austin and surrounding areas.
I’ll be back at Cedar Park Farms to Market at Lakeline Mall next weekend with my Make Your Own Soap Booth if you want to check it out.
