First and foremost, Happy April Fool's Day! Did you play a prank on anyone today? I suck at April Fool's so once again, I did not participate. I kinda did one on accident a month ago. I had a hard time telling my mom and sister that I was moving back to Enid so when I told them (separately) I kinda made it dramatic, such as "hey, I have something to tell you" in a weary voice. But then it was followed by a "We won't be moving to Tulsa yet, we're coming to Enid". See not so bad. But I still ended up giving my mom and sister a heart attack and their first thought was that I was pregnant. Geez, come on ladies! So they wanted to beat me up for scaring them, and for being so dramatic. Hehe, oops.
Last weekend I met this awesome couple that own an art gallery in downtown Enid called Scribner's Gallery & Studio. Not only that but they are amazing artists! We had discussed selling Stelabird goodies there so today Riley and I went to show my wares. And in the process I got to meet Andy Warhol.
As you see, Andy is a chinese crested who is super sweet and has to wear sunscreen when he's outside.
I love him. I really, really do.
So anyways, I will start selling at Scribner's THIS Friday! Normally, I would give myself a couple of weeks to start preparing merchandise for a new location but this Friday is Enid's First Friday, where downtown stores & restaurants stay open later and Scriber's has snacks, drinks, a new artist in the gallery, and live music-which happens to be Riley! Sooooo, you can see why I'm going to rush to make them merchandise to have that night.
If you're wondering why I don't just give them my inventory....it's because I don't have much inventory! Eeks! Once the items in my etsy shop sell and I relist, I don't make the product unless it gets sold again. And I'm constantly making things but then they go to my store locations. So I have a lot to make by Friday. But no worries, I have these clamp lights that help me work through the night without straining my eyes
And finally, I leave you with the album I'm currently obsessed with. I'm a year late, but who cares, I finally have it! It's perfect for making stelabird goods because it's so innocent, fun and spirited
