Montclair This Weekend.....October 5 & 6

It is really hard to believe that it will be October in a few days. It is overcast and chilly here today, and it really finally feels like fall. This coming weekend in Oakland should be enticingly cool after last weekend's breathtaking heat in Walnut Creek. So bundle up! I may have to turn on the space heater in the studio today!!!!

Fun Girl Thing in Walnut Creek

" I saw this last year and didn't buy it. I am buying it now, and my husband won't be happy, but I'm tired of being good."

Total fungirl.

Walnut Creek This Weekend

This coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday I will be in my usual spot on North Main St. in Walnut Creek. There is some sidewalk construction there, but they have built a walkway on the side of the road, so it is still accessible. And it looks like good weather!!!

So Bummed Before Lafayette

My computer let me down, so no pictures of new work for tomorrow's Lafayette Art and Wine Show. Booth 369. I'm in the hotel, and my battery is low. So much for technical dependance!!!
Hope you can come...I have a LOT of new things!

Life Returns to Normal before Lafayette.

It is amazing how I am counting on my computer more and more for my business. So, when my USB port seemed to QUIT ( except for the printer, which, WHO KNOWS WHY?) it means I couldn't listen to my audio books, no skpe-ing, and no posting pictures to this blog. Frustrated, thinking of the additional stop at Best Buy in the East Bay for the Geek Squad repair, I tried to look on the bright side. It would give me a little extra time to make work for the Lafayette show this weekend. No new pictures on my blog, but, I could actually make more jewelry!!

Laying in bed last night, I had a brief thought that perhaps I had more USB ports on my laptop.
For those of you over 50, you may know what I mean when I say that this thought went immediately out of my head. However, this morning when I plugged in my microphone for a phone call, there to my amazement were TWO more USB ports. Life has returned to normal. So I am looking forward to posting some new pictures of work before Lafayette this weekend.

Buy Online

I forgot to mention I put a few items on my etsy site for those of you that can't make a show.

I am pretty new to etsy, so there may be some unknowns (maybe?) .

A BIG Fun Thing

Shitmydadsays - on Twitter!
...A Great Twitter --Twit.. or --Tweet???? It's on Twitter anyhow. So am I, not that I give great belly laughs. I think I am Fungirlsjewels. All these online things are so confusing to us boomers. God that sounds horrible.
I love the dad in Shitmydadsays. He cusses more than me, and he makes cussing socially acceptable. He is so funny!! His son Justin is the author of these tweets, and I heard he has been given a book deal because they are so funny.
Love it!! Truly a Fun Thing for FUN PEOPLE!

Lafayette Art & Wine Festival- No Orinda in 2009

Sept. 19 & 20, I will be in Lafayette for the first time, on Mt. Diablo Blvd. for the annual Art & Wine Festival. My booth number is 369, and I have a link to the right where I have guestimated where this booth is likely located at the show. The hours are from 10-7 on Saturday, and 10-6 on Sunday. Long day on Saturday!!!!

I usually do a little show in Orinda in November, but that show has been cancelled, so this is my LaMorinda show for 2009. No Rec Center this year in Orinda!! This is sad news. That was always a fun little show.

Hope you can make it!! If you see something on this blog you would like me to hold for you, call my cell at 650-814-6966 ( it doesn't take messages...sorry!)

Kings Mountain Change of Location

My booth at Kings Mountain this year will be two down ( or up?) from last year. My husband will be in my old location, so this is a good thing. We are on the parking lot of the firehouse, which, when you enter the show, is up the paved driveway hill at the entrance to the show.

I have a lot of new work for this show, so I am pretty excited. I have a new bead style that only happened a few days ago, so I will have to take orders on them if they are popular.

We are leaving today to set up the show......hope you can make it.

Working Like Crazy

I just posted a few pictures of new things for the upcoming Kings Mountain Art Faire in Woodside this coming Labor Day weekend. I have more of course, but they are sitting in the studio waiting to be finished while I am painting my display stands, fixing posters and all the odds and ends that must be done also.
If I have time I will add some more photos.
Feel free to call me about any of these pieces. Most of them are one of a kind, and if you want one, it is best you get it now!!!

About Me

I love the stones and pearls, and the magic that happens when I combine them, and then again combined with the glass I make. You can find me at an Art show somewhere in Northern California most weekends during the spring and summer. Email me at FUNGIRLSJEWELRY@Gmail.com if you like.
