Allow me to apologize for my lack of blogging over the past few weeks. Things have been hectic. Lot's of work & a fair amount of play. This past weekend my parents came to town & we took my grandmother out to see the wiener dog races. Yes, you read that correctly. Wiener. Dog. Races. Talk about cute overload! So many tiny dogs wearing costumes & loping around. Our faces hurt from smiling. So, ya gotta forgive me for ignoring my blog momentarily. If you are having a hard time with this forgiveness stuff, just look into these puppy dog eyes... that always works.
When I wasn't hanging with my fam & watching little dogs speed down a track I've been scratching things off my to do list. 1.Making tons of jewelry for a boutique in Milwaukee called Fasten Collective (soon to be called Sparrow Collective). They are having their grand opening party on May 15th & I want them to be stocked up for it! Speaking of new stores... Is there a boutique in your town that you think would like to carry Model Citizen Clothing? If so please drop their name to me! If the store ends up carrying the line I will send you a special thank you gift in the mail. Why? Because sharing is caring people! Don't you forget it!
I've also been preparing for one of my favorite things - YART! Not sure you know what a YART sale is?
Yard Sale + Art = YART Sale!
On Sunday May 3rd myself & about 15 other artist will be putting it all out on the lawn @ BiRDHOUSE Gallery (1304 E. Cesar Chavez). Paintings, drawings & crafty fantatic-ness PLUS records, clothes, furniture & more. You think the fun stops there? No freakin' way! Larissa tells me that there will also be "baked goods & popsicles & beer & at least one kiddie pool & a polaroid photobooth!" Oh yeah & a Bloody Mary Cook-off, sponsored by Tito's Vodka!
Personally I will be selling off quite a bit of my wardrobe & lots of accessories. Some furniture & awesome accents from my casa will also be available. OH & I'm getting rid of a pair of Betsy Johnson sunglasses as well! On the CHEAP. They are in perfect condition, they just aren't right for my face. As for the ART part of YART - that's a surprise. I can tell you this though... I think I'll be bringing those Nacho Cupcakes. Oh yeah!
