Three pop-ups this month!
Hello Life Marvelers!
Birthday month was fabulous, and now it is time to pop up all over Chicagoland. I'll be at Platt-A-Palooza Saturday, the Ravenswood ArtWalk next weekend (10th & 11th), and Girls Nite Out on September 14. Scroll down for the details.
Then I'll be taking a trip to see family, and back to shop inventory loading in October, along with prepping for the fast-approaching holiday season.
I'm also excited to be featured in a book: INCiTE 4, which starts shipping after Labor Day. I cannot wait to see the layout of my contribution, and seeing if my local bookstores have a copy.
Thank you for subscribing, and like my Facebook page to call dibs on new creations before they head to online and offline stores
. You can also find a selection of my pieces at The Collage Cafe

Platt-A-Palooza & RAW
Platt-A-Palooza is September 3
, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in Bloomingdale. Platt Hill Nursery is hosting a showcase of handmade items from ceramics to jewelry, baby items to dish towels.
They will also be selling hot dogs, chips, and drinks. I will bring my wares to a table at the Bloomingdale location at
222 W Lake Street in Bloomingdale, IL 60108. The
Carpentersville location will feature other crafters the same day.
On September 10 and 11 I'll be part of the 15th annual Ravenswood ArtWalk
, a weekend of local art, local music, local food and local brews! Stretching along Ravenswood Avenue from Irving Park Road to Leland, the weekend will feature open studios and galleries, indoor pop-up markets and a street festival featuring live music, a children's corner, and food truck roundup.
I am SUPER excited to be in Artifact Events Indoor Market and Lounge at 4325 N. Ravenswood Avenue
this year. Pick up the virtual map and chart your route for the weekend.
This is one of the most inspiring art fairs in Chicagoland, and the permanent venues along the way have wonderful products and furnishings.
Girls Nite Out Elmhurst
I am excited to participate in RGL Marketing’s Girls Nite Out on Wednesday, September 14
in Elmhurst. The Wilder Mansion will be open from 4 pm to 9 pm. Admission is $10 to
come sip a new wine, enjoy a 5-minute massage, take home giveaways, learn makeup techniques and shop til you drop!
This fun evening is filled with more than 50 artisans, pampering services, wellness experts, and gourmet food vendors. Tannins Wine will be pouring samples and selling wine. Scottie Long will be playing acoustic music.
I will bring all my jewelry pieces, and a selection of my Swarm creations for those looking to decorate their homes with whimsy. It'll be a fun night of inspiration and lady-like celebration.
The 3rd Annual Girls Nite Out is produced by RGL Marketing for the Arts, Inc., presented by Brewpoint Coffee and sponsored by the Elmhurst Park District. The Wilder Mansion is located at 211 Prospect Avenue in Elmhurst, IL 60126.
This historic mansion is lovely to wander around in, and the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art
is nearby, which is on my list of places to visit.
