There are things happening! Both near me here in the Pacific Northwest and near me online. You know what I mean? Ok, here it is:
My 3D Gingerbread Christmas Trees were featured in Anthology Magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide, which is full of pretty things. Thanks Anthology! They also got a shout out in A Subtle Revelry’s Holiday Issue. Thanks A Subtle Revelry!
The Portland Bazaar is next weekend, Dec. 8th and 9th. There will be stuff to buy and food to eat and I wish I could make it down there. Also, Design*Sponge is buying the first 100 guests of each day a little pick me up (coffee from Heart on Saturday and Pine State Biscuits on Sunday). Nice.
The annual Gingerbread Village display here in Seattle is up now through January 1st at the Sheraton. If you’d like you can take a peek at what is on display each year. This display is one of my favorite reasons to take a trip downtown in the winter, and since the display is open at all hours (it’s in the hotel lobby) you can plan a late night viewing followed by cocktails nearby.
The Mighty Tieton 2012 Chandelier Festival is tomorrow, Dec. 1st and includes a Holiday Crafts & Antiques Bazaar and the opening of Trimpin’s Sound Space, which you can control using an iPhone. Which is awesome. I was a kickstarter supporter and have a bunch of tickets to experience it, which I’ll be doing soon.
Kin to Stars, which is one half Jerin Falkner and one half Scott Andrew (I’m married to one of them), is doing a holiday show soon. It’s the Kin to Stars’ Ugly Sweater Holiday Adventure on Dec. 14th. It’s $10 and it’s at the very comfortable Jambox, where they bring drinks and food to your table. It’ll be cozy and excellent.
Kirby Krackle just released a new song and video called One More Episode. (It’s fun to try to name all the show opening art in the video.) They’ll have a holiday single out soon, Kyle will be appearing at the Dammit Liz Holiday Special at The Triple Door. And Kirble Krackle will be opening for Wierd Al (!!!) at the Calgary Expo in April. Awesome.
