I obviously failed miserably at keeping my New Years resolution to post more on my blog… Ive also only been to the gym once this year and that took a lot of peer pressure. Ive been absorbed with applying to Grad School, projects for my children’s school and an attempt at learning how to relax and taking some mental health days (that last one is slow going).

The good news is that Ive been accepted to the Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) to obtain my Masters degree! Woo! Starting this summer I will be going back and forth between Savannah and Philly doing grad work, which I am thoroughly pumped about.

Ive also been invited to participate in this years “Tiny Trifecta” at the Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn opening June 6…. I will be there toting children and all so I hope to see some old buddies that weekend.

Some things Ive done (or am doing) lately:

I made this psychotic hat for one of my children, as they need a hat with one hundred things on it for their 100th day of school.

End of the Year Wrap up

I think the craziness of the last month of the year was appropriate for 2013. It will be forever remembered in my mind as the “year of extremes”… the best worst year ever.  December was terrific however, and Im glad to end it on a high note…

Big crafty was great! Thank you so much to everyone that come by my booth… I gotta say I love Asheville…

Cyber Monday Sale and other things

I hope everyone had a great holiday where they ate way too much and passed out at 6 in the evening in a modified fetal position… (maybe that was just me).

I also hope anyone who was partaking in the shopping madness this weekend supported Small Business Saturday and hit up all your favorite locally owned stores… including Recreate (heh). So in continuing with the shopping fever and in honor of what is now “Cyber Monday”  from now until Monday evening at midnight (eastern time) you can receive TEN PERCENT OFF (!!) your purchase from the Claw and Bone Etsy Site….

Which you can visit by clicking HERE… just enter the coupon code MANICMONDAY.

Theres some new jewelry and lots-o-prints… heres a few things you’ll find…

Also speaking of Monday and Recreate I will be there (10 W. Liberty Street) from 10-6 tomorrow, so swing by if face to face shopping is more your thing.

Dont forget to mark your Calendars for December 14th as we will be participating in a Holiday Hop in the Heart of the District along with Gallery Espresso, Fabrika, Red Clover, Perry Rubber, Oillie Otsun, and more! It will be awesome, and there will be food, drink and more discounts to be had. More Information coming soon…

The Holidays are Nigh

And I am in full Holiday panic mode. I am cooking a whole Turkey myself this year and considering I tend to destroy meat I am slightly nervous about it.

But I did manage to get a few things done, and I participated in Desotorow’s Junk in the trunk show the other day (thanks again to everyone who made it out!).

It was very cold.

For those of you who couldn’t make it out I will be putting all sorts of new things on my etsy site by weeks end… including Jewelry, Embroidered prints, screen prints, open edition prints (did I say prints?) and limited edition giclees… If you are interested in an original painting you’ve seen please feel free to email me at KelleyHagemes@gmail.com for availability and prices…
