I recently attended the Gateway Arts Open Studio Tour that went up Route 1 from Mount Rainier all the way up to Hyattsville. The last few times I went on this tour I didn’t go beyond Mount Rainier because I didn’t arrive until late in the day. This time I made every effort to arrive at the official noon starting time but I still didn’t go beyond Mount Rainier. It’s because there were so many things to see in Mount Rainier. (LOL!)

I began my tour at Marsha Stein’s art studio. Here are a few outside shots outside her studio.

Marsha’s art studio also doubles as her apartment. I checked out her paintings for a few minutes before I moved on. While I was on my way to my next destination I took a picture of some of the decorative relief trim that one can find in downtown Mount Rainier.

Next I went to the Gateway Media Arts Lab, a recently opened place that has five creative communications entrepreneurs who do things like graphic design, videos, and storytelling.

I moved on to ReCreative Spaces where I took the next few photographs.

While I was looking at the official map I saw that there was a home located a few blocks away where Joe Brewer has his own personal arcade in the basement. Here’s a couple of exterior shots of his home, which is typical of the type of home one can find in Mount Rainier.

Brewer's Arcade

Only this sign gave away that there is more to this home than meets the eye.

Brewer's Arcade

Joe Brewer frequently purchases and fixes up vintage pinball and arcade video games. Going into the basement is such a throwback to my high school and college years when I used to spend my spare time and a lot of quarters playing these machines.

He offered free beverages, which included Crystal Pepsi. I wrote about seeing that beverage in a store late last year and I wrote about my less-than-fond memories of the one time I tried drinking it in the 1990’s. I tried Crystal Pepsi again at Joe’s home and I have to admit that it tastes way better than the last time I tried it. But I still prefer the darker version of Pepsi over Crystal Pepsi.

Brewer's Arcade

Here’s some charming string art that I found in the bathroom that includes a map of the U.S. and a famous quote by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Brewer's Arcade

I’ll admit that I spent the largest chunk of my time playing those video games and pinball machines. (The fact that they were all on free play made it tempting for me to stay a long while. LOL!) I got back in my car and drove to Joe Hicks Ceramics, which is a studio that’s operated in the basement of this home.

Joe Hicks had a lot of really nice ceramics on sale.

I went to the nearby Washington Glass School where I found a lot of interesting artwork that were all made from glass.

By that point the official end of the Open Studio Tour was soon approaching so I went to the Otis Street Arts Project, which is located next door to the Washington Glass School.

EasterPassover

Last fall I was doing some tidying up around the house when I found this fused glass pendant featuring a bunny rabbit that I made years ago when I took a workshop that was offered through Profusions of Glass. (I may have even still been married when I made this pendant. LOL!) Well, anyway, I found it back in November shortly before Thanksgiving and I now have it in the place where I keep all of my other jewelry. I waited to write about it until today because the pink color scheme along with the rabbit just seems more like it’s appropriate for Easter Sunday than last November.

One of my friends from my Unitarian Universalist congregation asked me to do a favor for her. Basically she wanted to sell her fused glass jewelry at the annual church auction but she was going to be out of town for the weekend but she still wanted someone to sell her jewelry on her behalf. (Especially since 50% of the proceeds would go to the church.) So I agreed to do it. I took a few photos of my set up at the church auction.

The next picture shows some of the fused glass jewelry that was on sale that evening. (The flaming chalice that’s in some of the jewelry in the next photo is a symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith.)

The last photo shows samples of my banana bread that I baked for this auction. (I put two loaves up for auction while I made a third loaf to give away as free samples.)

I spent part of the Mother’s Day weekend at the Greenbelt Green Man Festival. Earlier this month I made an allusion to showing off a new product that I modeled on behalf of a new startup. Basically the startup’s first product is a jumpsuit that’s been pretreated with Sawyer Permethrin so one can go hiking, camping, gardening, and other types of outdoor activities without worrying about being bitten by ticks and mosquitos (both of which carry nasty diseases like Lyme and Zika). I posted a selfie while wearing one of those suits. I was also given packaged suits to carry around with me to sell as I walked around the festival ground.

I didn’t sell any suits. Most of the people I spoke with said that they weren’t into camping or money was tight. But the suit I was wearing did get people to open up to me about Lyme disease because they mentioned that they have a friend or relative who’s struggling with this devastating illness. I even had a longtime friend admit to me that she currently has Lyme disease. I knew that she had health issues, which have affected her mobility, but they never got specific as to the cause until she saw me wear that jumpsuit with a sign affixed to the back saying “Ask Me About Permethrin-Treated Disposable Jumpsuit.”

I wore the suit on the first day of the festival while I walked around taking pictures.

Like I wrote earlier I didn’t make any sales on those permethrin-treated jumpsuits. What was worse was that I saw The Backstabbing Couple From Hell (a.k.a. my ex-husband and his mentally ill second wife who used to be a friend of mine until I found out she wasn’t such a good friend). I left the festival about an hour before closing time because I grew tired of seeing them walking around acting all happy. (I have no idea if they are really happy or not and I don’t care.)

The following day I was scheduled to be a substitute teacher for the English language classes my church offers to recent immigrants on Sunday afternoons. I ended up skipping Sunday morning service so I could check out some of Greenbelt Green Man Festival. I didn’t wear the jumpsuit on the second day because I was only there about an hour and a half at the most and I went straight to church for the English classes. I took a few photos of the second day of the festival.

I bought just two items at this weekend’s Greenbelt Green Man Festival. One was a pendant made from recycled dominos that features an image of Edgar Allan Poe.

Anyway that’s it for this year’s Greenbelt Green Man Festival.

UPDATE (June 25, 2016): You can read about why I’m no longer involved with that startup for whom I was selling those jumpsuits at the Greenbelt Green Man Festival right here.

I was going through my Flickr account and I recently found the first album I’ve ever uploaded. Here’s the background: I was selected as a vendor for the 2007 Crafty Bastards event that was held in Adams-Morgan in Washington DC for the second year in a row. (The first year I was selected to participate was in 2006.) When I went to a planning meeting a few weeks before the show, the organizers asked us vendors to get accounts on Flickr so we could have a place to share our photos online. I did so and I brought my Canon Digital Rebel DSLR (which was my primary camera in those days) with me so I could take a few photos.

The first photo is my vending area. The man sitting behind the table is my then-husband, who was a great help to me on that day. (Obviously these pictures were taken in happier times.)

I basically sold polymer clay necklaces, polymer clay boxes, photojewelry with my small photos being placed in polymer clay frames, magnets made from my own photographs, and fairy dolls made from recycled Barbie and Ken dolls that I found in various thrift stores.

Here’s another photo of my then-husband sitting behind the table filled with my handcrafted merchandise.

My husband and I took turns with taking breaks so that someone was always in the vending area. I took a few photos of the event in general during my short breaks (which were mainly the times when I went to the bathroom or went to buy a soda or a snack).

photo19

It was a good show for me. The refurbished Barbie fairy dolls were the biggest sellers for me. The other non-doll inventory was a bust though. Otherwise I was okay with how that show turned out for me.

The 2007 Crafty Bastards show was the last Crafty Bastards show I took part in as a vendor. In 2008 I had hip problems that were so bad that I barely walked so I decided not to try out for that show. (I had a hip replacement that year.) In 2009 and thereafter I was rejected for that show and I found out the reason. Crafty Bastards originally was an event that showcased local artisans and crafters. In recent years that show began to provide space to vendors from outside the Baltimore-Washington, DC area (I’ve seen vendors at the last Crafty Bastards show come from as far away as New York City and Atlanta) at the expense of local vendors.

Sometimes I have a fantasy of starting my own annual craft show that would harken to the earlier Crafty Bastard shows in that local artisans from the Baltimore-Washington, DC area would be given top priority while vendors from outside the area would only be given space if there was any left. But starting a show like Crafty Bastards would require money, volunteers, organization, and space and I don’t even know where to begin. Besides I’m financially struggling too much right now to even consider making my fantasy a reality. But one can dream, right?

Even though I said last year that I would never sell my crafts at the Greenbelt Green Man Festival ever again, I still participated in this year’s festival in a very different capacity. For the past few months I’ve been active in a new group called the Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator and the idea is to bring green-oriented worker cooperatives to Greenbelt that would be jobs that actually paid a living wage. I’ve been doing it because 1) I like the concept and 2) I’m hoping to eventually snag a paying job that would be more steady than selling my original arts and crafts. (Even if it falls through, I’ll at least have something to put on my resume that may impress others that I’m capable of doing more than data entry, which is what I’ve done in the past.)

So I volunteered to sit for nearly two hours at the Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator table on the first day of the festival from 9-11:30 a.m. Actually working that table was way less stressful than last year when I had to haul my own stuff and be on duty for seven hours on both days no matter what the weather was. Table, chairs, and a canopy were provided and much it was set up by the time I arrived around 9 a.m.

When I arrived at the Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator table around 9 a.m. on the first day of the festival, this is what it looked like.

Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator

Things were relatively quiet for the first 20 minutes until another person came by the table with banner making supplies that she purchased during a shopping run to Staples and asked me to quickly create a banner.

Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator

So I spent the bulk of my time at the table laying out and sticking letters to the banner. Fortunately there weren’t a lot of people that early in the morning so I was able to cover the flyers so I could lay the banner out. The resulting banner wasn’t bad considering that I created it very quickly.

Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator

That banner hung from the canopy for the rest of the weekend until the festival ended.

Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator

By the time I finished working on the banner and hung it up, my shift at the Greenbelt Cooperative Incubator table ended. My shift also ended just in time for the start of the festival’s opening ceremony which included invoking the Green Man’s spirit at a small altar and a group of people dancing around a young mother holding her baby.

There was a display featuring live farm animals that was put up by Edie’s Place, which describes itself as “an eco-therapeutic farm”. It was also promoting a Farmers’ Market in nearby Glenn Dale that’s going on every Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

You can tell that this year is the mid-term elections in many states throughout the United States, including Maryland. Heather Mizeur is running for Governor as an environmentalist and progressive Democrat. No matter what the election outcome will be, Heather Mizeur has already made history as the first openly lesbian to run for Maryland Governor.

I caught up with a friend of mine, Tina Van Pelt, who was selling her handcrafted fused glass jewelry through her studio Profusions of Glass. Here is some of her work that she had on sale during the Greenbelt Green Man Festival.

Here is the rest of the photos that I shot at the Greenbelt Green Man Festival. There was a lot of music and a lot of dancing. There were plenty of vendors selling food and handcrafted goodies of all kinds. There were children’s activities. There were educational tables. The first day was rainy and there weren’t a lot of people there. The second day was sunny and warm (which was perfect weather since the second day of the festival also fell on Mother’s Day). You can guess which photos I took on which days by looking at the sky and the pavement.

Even though the Artist Studio Tour is over, my Lego mosaic Mother and Child piece is still on display at the New Deal Cafe and will remain there through the end of the month.

Mother and Child Lego Mosaic

If you visit the New Deal Cafe this Saturday, October 12, you might as well make a whole day of it because outside of the New Deal, in the very heart of Roosevelt Center itself, there will be an all-day outdoor event called Acorns A Go-Go Groovy Vegan Fest. I will be selling some of my stuff (including tiny canvases) alongside some fused glass jewelry that was made by a friend of mine, Tina Van Pelt. (Visit the Profusions of Glass website to get an idea of what I’ll have on sale.)

If that’s not enough, I’m going to have some special bumperstickers on sale to commemorate the current Federal Government shutdown. They will go for the low price of $1 each. I’ll upload a few samples once I have the time to create some web-friendly photos of these bumperstickers.

For a schedule and directions to this festival, check out the festival’s Facebook page.

UPDATE (October 11, 2013): Since Wednesday there has been non-stop rain. The Accuweather app that’s on my smartphone has predicted more rain for tomorrow on festival day. I spoke with Tina last night while I was picking up her items to sell for her and we both agreed that if it continues to rain tomorrow, I would cancel. So the latest word is that I will participate only if my Accuweather app turns out to be wrong and it stops raining tomorrow. (However that app tends to be pretty accurate most of the time.)

UPDATE (October 12, 2013): I decided to work at the Acorn A Go-Go Vegan Fest after all because, despite all weather forecasts, it is cloudy and windy but no rain. If you’re looking for something to do, come on by. I’ll be here until 6 p.m. tonight.

Shortly before Hurricane Sandy arrived, I attended two events in one day. One was the Annapolic Comic Con. I first heard about this event through a post card I picked up at the Baltimore Comic-Con and I thought that it would be worth checking out. I managed to take a few photos, starting with the local radio station who had a canopy erected and it was giving away things like pens and keychains.

2012 Annapolis Comic Con

I took a picture of myself wearing a unicorn mask that I own. The postcard for Annapolic Comic Con had a deal where you got a free Trick or Treat bag with candy if you showed up wearing a costume of some kind. The unicorn mask was one that I purchased at a street craft fair a few years ago from Mythical Designs by Miscellaneous Oddiments LLC.

Me Wearing the Unicorn Mask

I basically looked around and took a bunch of pictures of things like handcrafted jewelry, various comic books, people dressed in various costumes, Legos, board games, and a comic book artist signing an autograph. Since it was the last weekend before Halloween, there were also tables that had Halloween costumes for sale.

Compared to the one in Baltimore, Annapolic Comic Con was way smaller and I didn’t spend as much time there as I did at the earlier one in Baltimore. While I was walking back to my car I saw this robot glove on the dashboard of this vehicle.

While I walked out of the convention, I saw plenty of costumed people making their way to the entrance, such as these X-Men.

Later that night I went to a second free event. Each year there’s an annual free Pumpkin Walk in my neighborhood and it was held on this softball field that’s within walking distance from my home. So I walked to the softball field then followed the trail of lit jack o’lanterns through the Pumpkin Walk. It was a nice walk, except my feet kept on tripping over tree roots despite the fact that I brought a flashlight with me. Fortunately I didn’t fall but I made a big mistake by leaving my hiking stick at home because I could’ve used it that night. I survived the walk okay and I even took a photo of a few pumpkins on the trail. Sadly the photo doesn’t really do the Pumpkin Walk justice. (I should’ve used a flash.)

2012 Pumpkin Walk, Greenbelt, Maryland

I managed to get through the Pumpkin Walk okay only to trip on the sidewalk and land on my knees just a block or so from my home. I ripped a hole in my jeans. Granted it was an old pair of jeans but it’s still a bummer to rip a hole in one of the knees like that. Fortunately I was okay after my fall. At least I suffered no damage and I can still walk okay without major pain.

A few weeks ago I was surprised to suddenly learn about this festival that would feature local craft vendors because I didn’t hear about it until just a couple of days before the event. I later heard that it wasn’t organized very well and I’m not surprised because I didn’t see too many craft vendors present compared to—let’s say—the Greenbelt Green Man Festival just a few months earlier. If I had heard about this event earlier, I definitely would’ve had a table set up selling my stuff.

In any case, one of my friends was among the few vendors selling stuff. Her name is Tina Van Pelt and she’s responsible for Profusions of Glass, which specializes in a variety of products made from fused glass, including plates…

…and coasters and ornaments…

Fall Harvest Festival, Greenbelt, Maryland, October 13, 2012

…and jewelry.

Her table attracted a lot of visitors that day. It helped that it was sunny because the fused glass glittered in the sunshine.

In addition to what she was selling, Tina was also busy making more fused glass products on location. She even brought her portable kiln along.

Another booth I visited is The Enchanted Loft, which features the fantasy-inspired art of Catherine E. Valle. I’ve seen her booth at other local craft fairs and she does nice stuff. I purchased one of her Faerie Balancers at a previous show and it’s definitely a conversation piece. It’s a dragonfly-shaped faerie done in glitter paint. (By the way, the Faerie Balancer looks far more impressive in real life than what my smartphone camera picked up.)

Faerie Balancer From The Enchanted Loft

But here’s the real reason why it’s a conversation piece. You can actually balance this item on one finger, which is pretty cool thing to demonstrate to your friends to impress them.

Even though I’m still making the long recovery from my hip surgery, I managed to make one new item for this time of the year. It’s based on the traditional Day of the Dead skull art and it’s the jewelry version of one of my Skull Art pieces that I made for Art Outlet’s Ofrenda show last year. (By the way, due to my recent surgery, I won’t be participating in this year’s Ofrenda show or any other arts and crafts shows for the rest of 2011.) I made it from Shrinky Dinks paper that is especially made for ink jet printers. I added a necklace loop at the top and a pin backing so the wearer would have a choice of wearing it as either a necklace or a pin.

Here are some past Halloween/Day of the Dead-themed arts and crafts that I made, some of which I’ve since sold.
