Be careful out there. The World Wide Web is so yummy and enticing. Recently I discovered a website where craft supplies are auctioned off in real time to the highest bidder. When you sign up they give you $5 to start. And, of course, you want to spend it right away. You can even create a little virtual you to stand in the crowd of virtual bidders. Too much fun. Too addictive. I have 20 feet of vintage copper tube chain for jewelry making to prove it (Sold by ScrappyByDesign etsy.com). The site is tophatter.com. Going once. Going Twice. Gone!
I will be exhibiting my artwork (including this one), handcrafted cards and beaded jewelry at First Parish Church, 10 Parish St., Dorchester, Mass., during Dorchester Open Studios, which features more than 140 visual artists at 20 locations throughout Dorchester, Mass.
The event is Sat., Oct. 20, and Sun., Oct 21, noon to 5 p.m. Please come by if you are in the area.
