I’m looking forward to these booths and dozens more at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn next weekend (June 11 – 12).
1. Nicce Dress by Pip-Squeak Chapeau
2. Masquerade Ball dolls by Tidiworld
3. Love pouches by Humunuku
4. Letterpress Dice print by Stukenborg Studio & Press
5. Rolsten Backpack by Shelter
In other Shop Handmade news, you should check out the new Worthsy website, where creators Jessika and Zoe will carefully curate one new handmade good to be auctioned each week. Their debut auction item, made by Jessika, is charming. If you are a handmade artist, you can submit your shop / goods for consideration, too.
Wishing you all a happy weekend! xo
I wish that:
1). I could go to the Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philly this weekend to see Sara Lee Parker‘s textiles (I’ll be at the National Stationery Show instead, so I guess I can’t complain!), or
2). That she was coming to the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn next month.
Great designs, great colors. See her shop, which also includes some paper goods.

I don’t live in California or Illinois, but I kinda wish I did after seeing these gorgeous letterpress prints from Paper Parasol Press:
You know how Sufjan Stevens had once planned to make an album for each of the 50 states? I’m thinking this is the new 50 States Project.
Check out the fabulous Paper Parasol Press shop – you will not be disappointed. You can see Cindy’s other shop here (also fabulous). I own two of her prints, which I bought from her booth at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn a couple of years ago. I really love them both.
Speaking of Renegade, if you are in the Chicago area, Cindy has a booth at this weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair in Wicker Park. Wish I could be there!

At last year’s Renegade Craft Fair, Karin and I lingered for a long time in Jen Skelley’s booth, going through print after print, trying to decide which we liked best, as well as the piles of adorable toddler t-shirts. Her work is really lovely – cheerful, colorful, full of life. Take a look at some of her portfolio:
“Bobbi” limited edition print
Monogrammed E (for Elena, naturally)
Monogrammed R, for Rosa
Owl toddler tee
Matryoshka toddler tee
Visit Jen Skelley’s website, Etsy shop, and blog for more beautiful illustrations.
The Renegade Craft Fair is coming up at the beginning of June. I cannot wait to go back. Who wants to come along?
