The first part of this statement has already been revealed.That would be the December Trunk Show that i'm doing at the Columbus Museum Of Art.It's going to be AWESOME.

Next on my list of announcements is my NEW creations(pictured).
You get a sneak peek at my NEW Matryoshka Doll design.
The face is painted onto the fabric.Then I cut out the fabric for the body and attached with some fun stiches.
I think shes ADORABLE :o)

I also created a NEW line of Zippy Cosmetic bags.
There bigger than my other style of zippies, so you can put more stuff in them.
I made a mini sized Geisha Girl (pictured) and a Martyoshka Doll (pictured) to put on the front of them.
This would be a great bag to carry your essentials in as well, when you want to leave your purse at home.

I didn't get to take to many photos this past weekend at Craftin' Outlaws.
I was to busy talking to customers and talking to my neighbors.
and when my booth sitter(my husband)wasn't busy with his volunteer duties,I walked the show to see the other vendors and crafty friends.
This is definetly my favorite picture I took.
My Baby B with her mommy in her cool shirt I got for her at What The Rock ?!
You can see more photos from this year and from previous years in the
Craftin' Outlaws Flickr group.

Birdie Bag

I love picking out fabrics when i'm making bags.All the different colors and patterns to choose from.
In every group of bags I create there is usually one that stands out from the rest.In the last batch of purses I created I think this Birdie Bag turned out the best.
I just love the way it turned out.
Usually I keep my favorites around for awhile.I just like to have them near by so I can look at them.When I do decide to put my favorites out,they are usually the first to go.
You can find this colorful Birdie Purse here in my Etsy shop.
ENJOY !!!!!

Mary Moon Designs sets up shop at first ever Oddmall

This last weekend I set up shop in Hudson,Ohio for the first ever Oddmall Emporium of the Weird.
Me and Mr.Moon drove up Friday night and set up the booth when we got there.We went out for dinner afterwards,it was late when we got back so we headed off to bed.It was nice to wake up knowing all I had to do was put out a few things and touch up my display.
It did take some thought as to how to set up my booth though.We were given a 8 foot by 6 foot space.Most of the shows we do have the standard 10' by 10' space but there usually outdoor events.I went with the "lemonade stand" style set up and worked from behind the table.
The customers were great,I really enjoyed talking to them and showing them my creations.It's so nice to get out of your local scene and meet new people and introduce them to Mary Moon Designs.We had really good neighbors as well,Deb(Artistic Flair) and her sister-in-law kept us entertained.

Special thanks to Jill(Pink Sky) for taking a photo of my booth.Mr.Moon had his camera but never took it out of his pocket.At least I have one photo from the event.
The vendors of the Oddmall were mostly from northern Ohio.I met a bunch of new talented and creative artists.I was able to find some great fun gifts for my kiddies as well.
Overall I say the show was a success.Being it was the "first ever" Oddmall,it brought in a good crowd that were making purchases.I sold pretty well and met new people and artists.I had a few local friends to chat with (SDS) and had some quality time with Mr.Moon.

Next week I will be setting up shop in Whetstone for the first ever Eco Chic Craftacular hosted by Etsy Team Columbus.You need to come out and check this show out,it is going to be something special,I can't wait.
