Meridian Crafters' Marketplace

Tomorrow is the last Sunday in June (yikes, where did it go...???) and that means the first Meridian Crafters' Marketplace of 2010. It will be held the fourth Sundays of June, July, August and September, just as it was last year, from 11-4 in the Central Park Pavilion behind the township offices on Marsh Road. Mary and I will share table space this year, although she will not be there for tomorrow's show. I will, however, have her catnip mice on display, along with cat collar bandanas, a new addition to her business since last summer. If you have a kitty or even a small dog, you need to check these out--they are available in a variety of colors and patterns to complement any pet!

I've been working hard on new items this spring as well, and will have some on display Sunday. I'll have a bunch of stretchy bracelets

kitty earrings in a variety of bright color choices

Some new, colorful kitty figurines

Colorful swirl pendants on triple organza strands

and cool Retro style bullseye earrings and beads

Also some red, white and blue items just in time for July 4. Those I haven't photographed yet.

So come on out Sunday to see what's new for Clawdia's Creations and Cat's Cradle Creations, and see what other talented folks in Meridian Township have to offer!

Okemos Art Walk

It's time once again for the annual Celebrate Downtown Okemos Art Walk. It takes place in downtown Okemos and Wonch Park, and includes a fine art fair, a crafters' show, live music, food, children's events, and local business open houses. Riverside Cat Hospital is participating once again, with a clinic open house, adoptable cats from Ingham County Animal Control, contests, face painting by Hallie, and arts and crafts from Mary and yours truly. We had a lot of fun last year, and you can read about it and see photos by going back to my post from June 2009. This year we will also host watercolor artist Richard O'Malley, who will showcase his beautiful cat portraits! The Art Walk is tomorrow, Saturday, June 19th from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Stop by to see some great cat paintings, and see what new goodies Clawdia's Creations has, too!
