Springtime is the beginning of art festival season for me, and I hope you’ll gather art-loving friends and stroll in the sunshine to say hello if you’re near either of these two events:
San Diego Artwalk: April 28 & 29, 11:00am-6:00pm Little Italy, San Diego, California
This will be my 10th year exhibiting at this beautifully organized and artist-friendly festival. It’s on the water, and in the midst of the main area of Little Italy where all the restaurants and coffee shops are, so it’s a lovely place to stroll, and eat, and be inspired.
Sierra Madre Art Fair: May 5 & 6, 9:30-5:00pm 222 West Sierra Madre Blvd, Sierra Madre, California
This small but lively art festival supports the library in Sierra Madre, and it’s held in a park behind city hall, under a canopy of pines and junipers where a local flock of green parrots watches over us.
I LOVE listening to audiobooks in the studio while I work or travel. I have an account with Audible, and they posted this interactive U.S. map of readers’ preferences. Use the slider on the right side of the map to scroll through color-coded genres and see where audiobook aficionados read more horror, or humor, or health & fitness, or money management, etc. across the continent. (You folks in New Mexico consume a lot of books!)
Many of my patrons are unsure about arranging & hanging art in their homes. Paintings might sit leaning on the floor for months before collectors feel brave enough to commit to a placement with a nail in the wall. If that sounds familiar, this article has a simple list of directives you may find useful.
Thanks for your visit today, and I’ll see you in the next post –

For me, keeping a sewing blog for nearly 14 years has been a huge motivator to keep exploring my creativity and following my own curiosity. I sometimes think of my blog as a hungry mouth that’s always waiting to be fed. That little bit of self-imposed pressure sends me back into the studio to sew and write and finish what I’ve started. ~Abby Glassenberg
