see you at the market …

I’ll be at the Llewellyn Holiday Market this Saturday, November 18th, from 10am-5pm at 6301 SE 14th Avenue. Stop by and say hello! They have a lot going on:


I had a great time last weekend at the All Saints Bazaar. The vendors on either side of me (Alshiref and Jo Lupton) were both incredibly talented and equally nice. They gave me some good advice, helped me when my credit-card reader stopped working, and kept me company during a long day.

I met some new customers, too. Adults who love to color stopped by and bought cards. A few others bought stationery for gifts. And one memorable visitor was a little boy who totally cracked up when he saw my mittened octopus card. That made my day! The card is supposed to be funny, and seeing a kid, maybe 5-years-old, get the joke was gratifying.


So, off to Llewellyn this weekend. Then it’s the Lewis Holiday Bazaar and Tree Sale after Thanksgiving, Saturday, December 2 from 10am-3pm. Phew!

Upcoming events…

I will be selling Carrot Condo creations at three events in Portland this year. The first one has been happening for 62 years. Can you believe it? This is my first year taking part, and I’m really excited about it:


I’ll have my hot-off-the-risograph-press cat poster and cards. They’re kitties with a message, designed to represent all types of people working together whether they love it or not (some cats are looking pretty grouchy), whether they agree with each other or not, and whether they look alike or not.


Carrot Condo will be at these three events–hope to see you there!

Saturday, November 11 from 9am-4pm is the All Saints Holiday Bazaar at 3847 NE Glisan Street.

Saturday, November 18 from 10am-5pm is the Llewellyn Holiday Market at 6301 SE 14th Avenue

Saturday, December 2 from 10am-3pm is Lewis Holiday Bazaar and Tree Sale at 4401 SW Evergreen.




Portland Holiday Markets 2016

I will be selling Carrot Condo creations at a few craft shows in Portland this year.     

On Saturday, November 19th, I will be at Llewellyn Holiday Market from 10am-5pm at 6301 SE 14th Avenue.  


On Saturday, December 3rd, I will be at Lewis Holiday Bazaar & Tree Sale from 10am-4pm at 4401 SE Evergreen.

On Thursday, December 8th, I will be at The Madeleine Marketplace from 2:00-8:00pm at 3123 NE 24th Avenue.

I’m looking forward to seeing what other vendors have made, meeting new customers, and getting inspired for new projects. I hope to see some of you!

You can find all of my cards and storybooks at Carrot Condo on Etsy. I am especially excited about my collaboration with Lisa at Panda With Cookie–three different dinosaur cards you can color and a plush ornament designed and hand-stitched by Lisa.


My Winter Octopus comes as a Card You Can Color and has the option of coming with an ornament you can color and shrink (like old-school Shrinky Dinks!). img_4102I also have non-winter-themed items, like my Storybooks You Can Color. In fact, “Sometimes…The Weirdest Things Happen At Our House” may be ready for a second printing! Others, like “Follow Your Heart…” will be retired after they sell out so I can make room for new books. More about those in a few months!!
