Holidays, Crafting, and Kids: Why I’m a grump this December

  Untangling a big box of string lights – that’s a good analogy for my life right now. There are just so many different strands in there that need to be straightened out. I’m down to my very last holiday show. It’s been a good season, and the last show, Grump@Zoolights, looks very promising in …

A week of Small Business, and Big Happenings

I’m hoping to squeeze this little post in on Friday morning, because I have made a promise to myself to blog regularly every week. It’s harder than it needs to be sometimes, because I get very precious about my posts, and take forever to figure out what I want to say. I have never been …

Post Crafty Bastards Update – Freezing My Socks Off with the best crafters

Hellooo! Did you miss me, readers? Sorry for the lost week, but I have been ridiculously busy getting ready for the biggest show of the year, while trying not to neglect my poor children.

Wowza, has it been a busy month… and it is just going to get busier and busier up until Christmas. This year is looking to be a landmark year for Noctiluna kidswear. We are doing more and bigger shows, and I have been printing non-stop, so that we will (hopefully) have enough inventory for them. …

Design to Print. My process Revealed

Social media can be a tricky little temptress, showing you the shimmery side of everyone else’s business, and putting rosy filters on every dull moment. I’m as guilty as the next person of this, I’ve been shamelessly self-promoting since I started my little design venture, and am hopelessly hooked on Instagram now. But I don’t …

Autumn/Winter screenprinting sneak peek!

In my last post, I wrote about the benefits of printmaking for all people. Well, as it happens, one of those benefits (being happily engaged in a flow state), has lead to me doing not much else than screen printing for the past week. That’s great news for my business, in terms of being productive, …

What Your Kids Did at Art Camp – Week 3

I am flying to England on Sunday, so I’m writing about this week’s camp before the week is even over! I also am a little thin on photos, but I’ll update this post with more pictorial evidence later today, or you can click here. I have been very busy, and this blog post may sound …

What Your Kids did at Art camp – Running wild with town planning

One of the very best things about running my own summer camp is the many freedoms it involves. I write my own curriculum, and I plan things in great detail, but I don’t always stick with my plans. I firmly believe that a child’s learning experiences and environment at camp should be distinct from school. …

Summer Art Camp, What Your Kids Did – Week 1

And so, the first week of this year’s summer camp has come to pass. I should have written this on the weekend, but I was exhausted, and chose to binge read Howl’s Moving Castle instead (excellent book by the way), take long naps, and drop in on the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which is happening right …
