Now through mother’s day (also my birthday day!) buy one print and get another of your choice FOR FREE!

I am having this sale to help me get to ARTSCAPE , one of the largest art festivals on the east coast.
Having trying to get in for 4 years this year I finally got in!! I plan to have a whole new look and display to make shopping easier for my new friends.

Please head on over to AlwaysApril.Etsy.com to pick up your new art prints.
If you are a fan of the art but do not wish to own prints but would like to help out simply spread the word! That would be the best of help.

Now if you are feeling extra sassy there is a little piggy donate button to the right of my website, any little bit helps.

1st Craft show….and on to the next one.

Posted on

So…

Last weekend I did a show with the DC Spring Thing hosted by the Craft Mafia. After staying up till 2 with the help of my wonderful boyfriend, Steve  finishing up Slumber Jacks and peg boards we made sure we were ready for the show! We jumped in a packed truck around 6am ate some Chicken Minnie’s (Try them… at chick-fil-a…holy crap so good) listen to some Florence and the Machine and arrived to the parking lot at 8:30! Right on time! A first for us!

Aside from the parked car in our space at the event and the dc driving in general, set up was a breeze after the car was towed! Sorry guy… you were warned.

The people there were absolutely wonderful and made this easy for a 1st timer!

Jessica Blaszczak was right next to me with her adorable shop called This Little Piggy!! It was so hard not to buy them all up! I was Lucky to have her next to me! Across the ways was the lovely EHL Creations  so nice and her photography is fantastic! Also the very sweet and talented Lucia Tschen Hamilton was down a bit!! Her husband hunted me down to purchas my Anter Art Puro RockNRoll, I was so flattered! And even Cthulhu chick behind me even offered me Sunscreen! Everyone was great and I would be honored to do another show with them!

Not expecting such a great success last Saturday (being my 1st show and all) I am playing catch up with my items and prepping for my next show:

The Wine & Art at Sunday’s Jazz & Blues Festival

SO MUCH PAINTING TO DO! I hope I can at least get 2 more Antler pieces done before then!

Also I have been a busy buy bee working on my jewelry to Spruce up my Etsy! I need 4 sales to make my June goal! And I hope I make it! Perhaps free shipping? or a gift to the next 3 or 4?? hmmm? Let me know what I can do for you! 😉

Hoping you have a wonderful night! I am off to eat some yummy turkey and rice. Be jealous.

Always,

April!
