I will have 5 dolls in this show if you happen to be near and you want to see them in person. Here are the details in case everything is a bit too small-

Nichol Brinkman, Curator’s Statement:
As with most interests in life, if you dig deep enough, you will find there is an entire sub-culture full of fellow enthusiasts. Through the All Dolled Up show, Vincennes University has given me an opportunity reach out to a select group of my heroes from that softie-making community. I have chosen these artists to showcase their work based on their sense of whimsy, imagination, design sensibilities and refined craftsmanship. I have been amazed and inspired by each of these artists, and I am thrilled to be able to exhibit along with them. I hope this show captures a child-like sense of wonder and awe in everyone who views it.

South End Holiday Market

Today is the day! I will be setting up, later this afternoon. Then there is a charity opening event tonight and open to the public tomorrow. I feel ready but nervous.

All the info here.

I am going to unlist all my one-of-a-kind pieces from my Etsy shop- just for this weekend event. I am always nervous that something will sell in 2 place at once. Then, on Monday I will put it back along with whatever else I’ve got. I will be putting the new work in the shop starting at noon, eastern standard time. Unless there is very little work left (unlikely), or I totally have my act together (also unlikely), the work will dribble into my shop during the afternoon as I write up the listings- not all in one bunch like I usually do.

See you then! Have a great weekend.
