The Waltz-Astoria is a great coffee shop/music venue at 23 - 14 Ditmars Boulevard, Astoria, Queens. This holiday Fair will go from 10 to 6 this coming Sunday, and from what i understand, there will be an awesome assortment of artists with their wares.

Better Late than Never!

My jewelry shows on friday and saturday were gangbusters.

Friday night at Arthouse was the Hudson County Arts Slam, and it was amazing! Tons of art displayed all around the room, great live music, an area set up for guests to participate in painting, slam poets, and at some point there was a quantum of Lego spilled out on the floor for all to enjoy.

I met a ton of great people, and sold enough jewelry to run me out of my little velvet bags, so we picked some more up on the way to Marti's on Saturday!

For the trunk show, don and I drove in from Jersey... forgetting what a nightmare parking is on the east side. Seriously? All muni-meters? What is the deal with those things anyway? But that didn't stop us! Marti greeted us with all kinds of tasty treats, and we had a lovely afternoon soiree.

Now I need to buckle down and replenish my store, it's growing thin again. maybe if the sun ever came out i could snap some better photos. :)

for those of you who were interested in custom items. please feel free to email me directly, alexladydesigns (at) gmail!

Such an exciting weekend!!

I'm really pumped about my two shows this weekend. I had a finger injury just before Thanksgiving that was keeping me away from my pliers... um, complete torture... but I'm back in bidniss and I've been creating all kinds of new designs!

I hope you all can make it tonight to the Hudson County Art Slam. That's my necklace, featured on the website! Woot!

23 Shopping Days... Stocking Stuffers Under $10!

I love stocking stuffers. My mom would always put together these giant stockings for my sister and i, and wrap each and every tiny thing, down to individual cap erasers, with a tangerine at the toe, and we were allowed to open them the moment we got up on Christmas Day! I realize now this was because she was trying to get a couple extra minutes of shuteye after staying up all night scraping the orange Toys R Us stickers off of things.

For all of your loved ones who have a stocking in need of filling.

Oh, crocheted moustache, where have you BEEN all my life??? This nifty item from Shannon Gerard is for the person who thought they had everything.

Perfect for any girl on the go, this snazzy little pocket mirror from MadisonCraft is sure to please!

If you have a Flight of the Conchords fan in your life like I do, I recommend these tribute magnets from elloh.
um, and really pretty much anything in the store. Tribute magnets for the Office, Juno, Dirty Dancing, wow! I'm thinking you'll check at least five people off of your list!

Don't leave this bad boy out for santa to eat... This gingerbread man is a yummy soap! Check out LoveLeeSoaps for more holiday styles.

There's not much that's cuter than this snowman pendant from 3bagsfull!! love it!

And, in keeping with the spirit, how about this chocolate tangerine bath scrub from Smellsandbells? Best yet, you won't forget it in the toe of the stocking and have a rotten citrus fruit a week later. I know, I know. I was never big on oranges though.
