Lowcountry Artist Holiday Market

A very happy Monday to all! I’m very excited to announce that I’m participating in the next Lowcountry Artist Market on December 7th! I have several pieces of my beautiful new vinyl cut out and now I have that deadline to get me in the pants again.

The Lowcountry Artist Market can be followed via: Facebook | Blog | Twitter | Pinterest

Latest work

I’m quite pleased with the work I’ve been producing over the last year and I am working on patterning several new prototypes (I’m keeping those under wraps at the moment) for the upcoming  Farmers Market season. I am also in the process of merging the two shops and moving them over the Big Cartel.

In the interim, here are some not so great photos of recent bags I’ve made. The top three are available for purchase if anyone is interested in them, please contact me at evita(at)thehappyheathen(dot)com.

It’s in the bag

I’ve been terrible about photographing and sharing new inventory. This is one of the bags I finished for last weekend and took while we were setting up the tent. It was popular but sadly, it didn’t leave with anyone so I’ll have it with me tomorrow at the Charleston Farmers Market.

Turquoise glitter vinyl is my new favorite material.

*Chirp, chirp*

Where does the time go when one is busy and doesn’t have much to say? Hey, it goes almost two weeks since a post.

I’m heading out to Atlanta Friday morning to attend the Inman Park Festival. We (our seriously awesome friends and I) had a booth two years ago and back in 2004, and we’re coming back! It’s one of my favorite spring events and I’m so excited to ‘have an excuse’ to be there this year.

I’m hoping we’re to the same spot (or at least on Edgewood) as two years ago. I love being on the parade route! Oh and, please no rain this year!

Charleston Farmers Market


{ The 2012 CFM poster artist is fellow CFM vendor Amanda McLenon. }

The 2012 season of the Charleston Farmers Market opened on Saturday. I don’t think we could have asked for a more beautiful day in terms of weather and turnout. We had a blast. Last year was kind of like the first day of high school, only at a school in a new district. Not only were we part of the freshman class but we didn’t know anyone. This year felt like we were returning sophomores, with the day far more relaxed and I think possibly more exciting than last year. That didn’t change that we barely got any sleep the night before and we were so fired up as we were leaving I thought I was going to spend a few hours in the garden… until we started driving home and the exhaustion hit. We totally crashed when we got home.

Michael made some fabulous new stands and while we only used one on Saturday, they’re going to work perfectly for my pillows and bags.

Needless to say, I am so excited and so thankful to be participating again this year!

Gaps in time

Last week found me scrambling about in preparation for a wicked fast trip to Atlanta. I picked up 15 yards of vinyl (thank goodness for the closet reorg) and now I’m ready to roll with some sassy new bags. I have the Lowcountry Artist Market coming up this Saturday and will have several available for sale! I’ll have some goodies to share this week, so stay tuned!

Sneak Peek – Blue sparkle dragon bag

I was thinking that I would post this on Monday, but it got the better of me. I cannot resist the sparkle vinyl! This and the manatee tote are now live at the Happy Heathen shop!

Monday, Monday

I’m very excited to share this new piece as it is the prototype for a new line in the shop. It will be available next week!

Pewter vinyl with a silk screened manatee and blue stitched lines. It is lined with a heavy linen/cotton blend fabric. The chain handles are upcycled from an old bag. The vinyl has an irridescent-like sheen to it so the manatee also changes color a bit.

I’m finishing another bag and will be in mostly full production with those and some other new items next week!
