Western Hills UMC Autumn Bazaar - Saturday, October 8, 2022



After a two year hiatus due to Covid, the Western Hills UMC Autumn Bazaar is back this coming Saturday, October 8!  Hosted by the ladies of the church (for 30+ years now!), over 50 booths of local El Paso artists and other vendors will be there, including Nina Eaton of Nina Eaton Photography, Candy Mayer of Art By Candy Mayer and me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  Admission is free.  AND, as you can see from the information below, there are many more things going on besides shopping at the vendors booths (my personal favorites are the book sale and Grandma's Attic).  Plus there's a silent auction, door prizes and many other fun things.  All proceeds go towards UMW charities / mission projects.  Please stop by my booth and say "Hi!"  Look forward to seeing you there!

The show season is beginning to pick up for this fall.   Two new ones have been added and I'm participating in each, along with other artist freinds.

Holiday Art Crawl - El Paso



On December 14 and 15 is the first annual Holiday Art Crawl right here in El Paso.  Four west side artists are opening their homes/studios for two days of shopping for unique handmade Christmas gifts for a friend, a relative, a loved one . . . or yourself.  Guest artists will also be found at most of the homes.  Food and beverages will be available (including my almost-world famous sangria at Nina Eaton's house).  You can also register for a chance to win a door prizes at each location.  So, mark your calendar and come join us at the Holiday Art Crawl!!


I'm thrilled that Nina Eaton has asked me to be the guest artist at her house.  I'll have a wide variety of handmade jewelry from my Shadow Dog Designs shop, mostly earrings and necklaces, but a few bracelets as well.  Everything is one of a kind with the exception of a few Christmas earrings.  Nina will have a wonderful selection of El Paso photography and gift items.  I have purchased several beautiful items from her over the course of a couple years, including, most recently, custom photo coasters of our sweet dog, Seamus (:  Here's a link to her online shop:  Nina Eaton Photography
