Colab 2009 @ Gallery Nucleus part II

This past December I participated as a vendor with my friend, Helen of Helen Oh Jewelry, in the Colab craft / art show at Gallery Nucleus.  Out of college, Gallery Nucleus was my first art job.  If you know anything about me, I'm an art snob and went to school for a degree in Drawing & Painting.  So when I interviewed for this job, I was so nervous!  But I soon realized all of my co-workers were like me! :) quirky and LOVED art.  I eventually moved onto another gallery soon after started my own business.  So when they asked me to be a part of this show, I was thrilled!

While I was roaming around taking a look at all the goodies, I came across this loverly shop...LovMely!  All her hair accessories are divine!  I chose one and made a vendor swap!  Love it!  I wear it all the time!  Visit her etsy shop!

This stationery co. sells letterpress cards and they're oh-so-cute!  I met the two owners of Fugu Fugu Press and they're oh-so-sweet!

and this is from my booth-mate, Helen!  Here jewelry is amazing and easy to wear as well as dress up.  Her pieces are unique and fresh.  Check out her etsy shop H E R E.

Here's me with my stuff! 
with all my handmade flowers and display in their blooming glory...haha
For my second display, I had flowers all over it but I wanted to add something different too, so I took my exacto knife and eyeballed a butterfly wing pattern.  I don't recommend doing this though...I should have printed a pattern first.  
If you've ever been a vendor, this is the best of the best in craft show diets, tacos from Eat My Taco...We were spoiled with Helen's husband {Youkeun of Youkeun Oh Photography} bringing us goodies and taking the photos.  Plus there was a farmer's market going on behind the building so we got red velvet cupcakes and HONEY STICKS!  That plus my venti americano totally kept me wired throughout the day!  I wasn't able to get any sleep the night before due to a traffic accident with my dog (he's TOTALLY fine now, he's super dog), but the energy at the show helped me also.
If you weren't able to make it to the show, stop by my etsy shop and take a gander at my small stash of stationery!  I'm also starting to offer the paper flowers for clients...great for garlands, small or large ornaments, or just decorative pieces here and there! :)  Pictures will be up soon!
Look out for the next issue of Utterly Engaged!  Photoshoot including my stationery will be featured!  The current issue is definitely a "Tear Jerker"...If you haven't subscribed for the first online wedding e-zine, sign up now!  You won't be disappointed!
