De-Stash Bash This Weekend

Hi all! I wanted to put a fun event on your radar. Jennifer Perkins is hosting a De-Stash Bash at the TOMS Shoes on S. Congress April 26th from 11-5pm. Her recommendation is to think of it like a group arts and crafts garage sale.

According to Jennifer this event will be like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Etsy and a flea market all rolled into one without the long lines, politics, postage fees and dust. Plus there will be a band and free drinks.

Some of Austin’s craftiest people are coming together to set up shop and help others start their own crafty adventures. Don’t come looking for finished items, this is all about the supplies. The artists involved are clearing out their craft closets for a major de-stash! Here are a few things you might find:  Vintage beads, sewing trim, collage ephemera, yarn, raft books and magazines, fabric (new and vintage), buttons, scrapbook supplies, and jewelry findings.

Vendors include….

Jennifer Perkins formally The Naughty Secretary Club, Anne Marie Beard of AnneMarie: Style for the Individual, Leslie Bonnell of Stitch Lab, Chia of Chia Hats, Sierra Baily of Manic Trout, Lisa Chouinard - Feto Soap, Becka Spellman - Baby Bolt

Thingy Thursday: Artist and Collector, Greg Irvine

Eve Wilson Photography 

I can’t think of a better Thingy Thursday post to begin 2015 than the amazingly creative and collected space of artist Greg Irvine. I was wowed by this collaboration between filmmaker Paris Thomson of SIRAP, and Editor Lucy Feagins of The Design Files. Together they made a short video documenting Greg’s remarkable home, his collections and his paintings. 

Greg's collection of tortoise shell objects is stunning!

He has a large collection of vintage fabrics which he uses in his painting.
TITLE: View to the Garden with Blue • MEDIUM: oil on canvas • DIMENSIONS: 4ft x 5ft

Greg believes in surrounding himself with a lot of beautiful things. . . a practice I'm more than a little familiar with, but I think you call mine hoarding!

His sketch books are jaw-droppingly stunning!  He has hundreds of them full of sketches/paintings like the ones above.

TITLE: Clarice Cliff & Flowering Gum • Limited Edition Print 1/100 • DIMENSIONS: 91cms x 84cms
