i shared the upper level withsass and peril's shannon kennedy (unseen in this pic)
iron cutain press.
i got a chance to wander downstairs and meet some of the other artists but regretably forgot the camera... some of my favorites were tracy of tw pottery, dominik and his gorgeous wooden cutting boards, kristen of pommes frites (i love all her soy candle scents), mickey from fabled soap co. whose super nice sister passed out wonderful little samplings, and elinor nissley of krank press (letterpress) who is about to be the owner of an intaglio press and has invited me to come print as a guest artist once she gets all set up. we have a lot in common when it comes to old style printing methods and oil based inks. so, i'm going to hold you to your word, elinor (;
it was wonderful to see old friends and make new ones: my dear friend nancy mungcal of pretty little thieves came to the show to say hello and it was truly great to finally actually meet her in person. hey, coffee next week? + great to see you and liz too, leanna!
did i mention the dj spinning goodies and the fancy pink drinks of blood orange ginger and clove with spritz, pink sugar, stripey straws and sweet coconut treats from heirloom la, the glitter smilebooth? this was truly a well-planned, organized, smooth running, non-stop fun, fun fun event. thank you west elm!
