North Carolina: The Mountain Nest.
There is a lovely gallery and shop in Black Mountain, North Carolina called The Mountain Nest. It is full of gorgeous hand crafted arts and crafts, with a focus on birds! How perfect. I am so impressed by it. You can find my prints, cards, pins, and magnets there. On this trip I brought them some original bird nests. Here I am with one of my pieces... And my favorite things from the shop... I want these bird houses and carved bird ornaments! So cute!

While in North Carolina this month I went to The Big Crafty indie craft fair in Asheville. Lots of talent there! The place was packed! It was difficult to move around, I was frustrated with the crowd but hopefully it meant the artists had lots of sales. It was cool to see some new stuff. So She Sews: E.

The Sketchbook Project.
Last weekend I went to see The Sketchbook Project exhibit. They gave you a library card and you could check out two books at a time. I checked out sketchbooks at random based on themes. It was very interesting! Here is a little glimpse at some of the sketchbooks I saw:
