I was tied up for a moment there.

My New Years Resolution will be to update this more often. Although maybe it shouldn’t be, because that pretty much guarantees I won’t do it. Theres been a lot of good and a lot of bad. Ill catch up by … Continue reading

Summer so Far

Phew. Its been a crazy summer thus far. I’ve been summering the hell out of it. However when I got back into town from our mega trip, I discovered that not only did my one and only external drive bite the dust while we were traveling but my computer had some sort of stroke in my absence. I was not happy for a moment there. During the process of getting everything recovered and working again, I probably would have flipped my desk on more than one occasion had it not been for the fact that it weighs a ton. BUT, after many trips to consult the “geek squad” and thousands of hours reading forums on various ways to fix the endless stream of problems I was having, I think I have everything back on track (knock on wood).  Ive also learned from all the eye rolls I encountered when I said I only had one back up drive that apparently I should have many…  and backups for those. Apparently they think I have a money tree as well.

Thats why its been awhile since I’ve updated…

aaaaanyway, This is what Ive been up to:

I packed up my four and five year old and left town for a few weeks for a marathon trip involving stops in Connecticut, Brooklyn, Philadelphia and South Carolina. That last one was unplanned (its a long story involving my intense fear of flying, I won’t bore you with it, that is if I haven’t bored you already). It was amazing to see so many old friends and hit up as many museums and eat as much food as humanly possible. One if the highlight was being to attend the Tiny Trifecta at The Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn. They invited me to participate this year and I was more than excited to.

I had a wonderful time in Brooklyn and saw so many old friends it made my heart swell. Teaching my kids to navigate the subway was interesting and full of horrifying moments of my youngest putting her face/mouth/ hands all over everything. It was like emersion therapy for me and my feeling about germs. We even made it over to Bushwick to eat at my friends new restaurant Montana’s Trail House (you must go) and spotted this beautiful Mural by Beau Stanton across the street…


sometimes I miss New York.

The rest of the trip involved the American Museum of Natural History, walks in Central Park, a slightly horrifying trip to Times Square because the kids HAD to go to the big Toys r Us, racing down to philly and visiting dear friends and getting to see the Barnes Museum for the first time which was very special and inspiring, The Franklin Insitute, Philadelphia Zoo, the South Carolina Aquarium… We wanted to squeeze every last drop of fun out of this trip, but I won’t blather on any more and I promise I won’t fill the rest of this post with vacation kid pictures…

I was also involved, When I got back to savannah, the Artists & Artisans Tour of homes sponsored by the Downtown Neighborhood Association, My work was displayed in a beautiful home on Gaston Street along with many other local Artists…

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…

So long 2012

After a small break to deal with the holidays, some personal calamities, and some sort of cold/ flu death spawn that has invaded my face and lungs… I am more than ready to say goodbye to this past year. It was a weird one.

BUT Santa (or my amazing Aunt Debbie in this case) did come through and I found THIS under the tree

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….

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.

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…

This weekend

Tonight a couple of prints of mine will be included in Le Snoots “Three Little Prints” show (6 East State Street, Savannah) …

a preview…


Also, I had intended on bringing new necklaces over to Recreate last weekend, and in my massive hurry and worrying about my car that I left in the alley, I managed to tangle them SO bad that I actually had to just bring them back home.

In the end I had to cut them apart and piece them back together. But the good news is I brought them back over to recreate without destroying them. Along with a new one…



and tomorrow Ill be bringing by some of those prints from last post and some postcards..

So If you’re are in the Downtown Savannah Area this weekend looking for early Christmas gifts or having a “treat yo self” day swing by (ReCreate: 10 W. Liberty Street, Savannah, GA 31401)….
