shameless plug: the cool kids hang at the VFW.

Here I go, almost forgetting to plug myself!

This Sunday, October 12, I will be one of fifty vendors at the Handmaidens Minneapolis Fall Craftacular!

The Handmaidens are made up of three very cool and talented chicks. They put this show on four times a year, and I am very fortunate to be in my second show of theirs. This takes place at the Uptown Minneapolis VFW, which is just north of the Lake and Lyndale intersection on Lyndale Avenue. The show runs from 10am-5pm, with drink specials ($2 bloody marys and screwdrivers) until 1pm. Each show participant will have an item in the end of day raffle, which is free to enter. Parking is available in the back- enter via Aldrich Avenue.

You can find me selling in the lower level of the space. To get an idea of what I’ll have, please visit my Etsy store, but I can assure you, I will have much more than what is currently featured in there. For more information on the show, visit the Handmaidens website. If you let me know you read about the show via this blog, you will get a discount on any purchase. See you then!

friends pimping, part 2: there will be blood.

One of the reasons I have enjoyed working with Theatre Pro Rata is there is no fear of a dark side. The plays often delve deep into the shadows and expose things living with in to the harsh light. As a props designer, I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to make some crazy and twisted stuff. Seriously twisted, but in the best possible way.

This Saturday, (October 4), Theatre Pro Rata, helmed by the fabulous Carin Bratlie, premieres their new season with the play "Killer Joe." Written by Tracy Letts, KJ is about a hit gone awry and the residual horrifuc fallout. This play features some of the best of local theatre (great folk, one and all), and breaks in the new Gremlin Theatre space at University and Raymond in St Paul. Saturday's performance will have festivities before and after. For more information, click below:
