DC’s best con, IMO, @awesomecons , is coming up in few weeks! It had to be postponed from last year so I am equally excited. I started sewing again at the start of the pandemic to make masks for care givers. Now putting those skills to use making my gender bending #captainamericacosplay . And yes, you guessed it, it’s going to be #upcycle ! All the materials including accessories are from thrifting. Work in progress, but I will be able to show it off come August so be ready! #cosplay #comics #costumedesign #upcyclefashion #ecofriendly #ecofriendlyfashion #recycledfashion #maker #sewist #thriftstorefinds #fleamarket #fleamarketflip #homemadecostume #handmade #handmadecostume #habdmadecosplay #marvelcosplay #upcycledclothing #handsewn #diy #diycostume #captainamerica

Anyone else have this problem when thrifting? Was not intending to grab more furniture pieces but couldn’t beat the prices and brag the pieces are all small and collapsible- perfect for city living. I will be posting before and after later this week and will be at the Old Town Arts and Crafts Festival at the Alexandria water front on 6/12 with upcycled goods galore!

Super fun night with @amyeggersdesigns Caftan party at Kazien in Del Ray. Such fun talking everything from vintage fashion to comics to cute dogs with some of Del Ray’s most fabulous ladies. Almost didn’t go out tonight- stressful work day, misplaces my ID, haven’t been with people I don’t know in over a year! So glad I came out- a bit of normal is starting to feel good!!

Spring market had to be called off this year 😢 but not to fret! You can still stop by @delrayartisans to shop takeaway pieces from the artists. Gallery opens back up later this week. I have a few pieces available at the gallery while my Etsy site is under reconstruction. Swipe to take a look! #delrayalexandria #localartists #upcycle #assemblagejewelry

I loved this quote as it’s been my mantra lately and crafting always helps me feel better! I stopped in yesterday to @stitchsewshop to pick up a new embroidery kit expecting lots of upcoming (potentially stressful) downtime. They are a model local business and you should go give them some support! The helped out the community so much during the shutdown last year! ❤️ the shop is temporary closing but you can still order for pick up, and they are still having their staff make samples etc so everyone gets paid 🙌🙌🙌

I’m lucky I’m able to make my art, and while I would always love to do more, for me it’s supplemental income. So I will take this time to create more inventory and be better ready for the summer and fall season. That being said, my heart goes out to the many artists, creatives, small business owners (retail, food etc) who are going to be experience some very turbulent times. Our communities need them to pull through! Our small businesses in #oldtownalexandriava are always giving back to the community. For those of us privileged enough to have some disposable income, we should take use this opportunity to return the favor. Many are still offering ordering and pickup so give them a call to see what they are offering before you hit the online stores. #supportsmallbusiness #shoplocal

If you’re in Del Ray, come to @delrayartisans to check out the Fresh Meat exhibit now through September 1. Swipe through to see my pieces and some more of the gallery.
...
The first piece is What Time Forgot, made from a recycled shutter and broken butterfly and flower jewelry, plus magazine collage, to represent the take back of our world by nature and time. The second, Milky Way, is more self explanatory and represents my love for all things space.
...
I mostly do upcycled jewelry and only this year I’ve gotten in to making larger mixed media pieces. It’s still a learning process, especially since just as with my more commercial items, I only use recycled materials. I was nervous to have my pieces in this exhibit because I don’t feel like a “real artist” and I knew there would be some amazing pieces and what I call “fancy art” (aka fine art) as opposed to my work which is usually more folk or conceptual. But I really like how they look hanging in the gallery, and I LOVE all the other awesome pieces by my fellow artists.

The EPA estimates that 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it. Some people are being more conscientious about recycling, and also about reusing. Artwork submitted to this exhibit should contain at least half recycled materials. Recycled materials may be found objects, unusual items, even recycling some of your older art pieces. Open to all area artists. Show runs February 1-24.

My favorite day of the month- flea market day!! Today’s flea market haul inadvertently had a color palette going on! I’m excited for some new projects with these fun materials. One of these days I will make it to Brimfield and lose my mind but for now I’m happy shopping at the local market. Lots of people ask about how to find materials, you honestly need to just go out often and also search online. This will give you a sense of what types of materials to look for, what kind of quality is acceptable for certain ages of materials, and what fair prices are. But mostly just go out and be inspired by what speaks to you! #fleamarkerfinds #fleamarketflip #upcycle
