Christmas in July Arts and Crafts Fair

IMG_2088

Just finished another arts and crafts fair this weekend. For whatever reasons, not that many people came, but it sure was nice sitting in an air-conditioned building all day. Sold mostly notecard sets. Only a few people took the time to stop and read the poems.

Rooster Woodblock Notecards

Multicolor Rooster Notecards

Reproduced the rooster woodblock print on color card stock (red, yellow, blue, neon green, forest green). Lined up for the photo, they kinda-sorta have a Andy Warhol effect? A set of notecards can be ordered at my not-so Etsy-successful shop.

“Hedgie the Hedgehog”™ Notecards

Hedgie the Hedgehog™

Hedgie the Hedgehog™

Yesterday, I made notecards from the woodblock I cut of a hedgehog. Couldn’t resist giving it a name, so I came up with Hedgie the Hedgehog™ (Hedgie being short for Hedginald). Why stop at naming, so I came up with the phrase: “Livin’ life each day the hedgehog way!© And yes, a set of Hedgie’s notecards can be yours from my Etsy shop, PoeticExpressions.

“Hedgehog” Woodblock Print

IMG_1937

In getting ready for an arts and crafts fair next month, I cut this woodblock of a hedgehog. The photo is the block after it’s been inked. Its quills offered a challenge I couldn’t resist. Many years ago, after watching a Kipper the Dog episode where he and his pal, Tiger, are hedgehog watching, hedgehogs seem to keep popping up in my life.
