honeymoon hat, shop sale, and new postcards!

Straw Summer Sun Hat by Beliz82

Kai and I are getting ready for week two of open studios and our upcoming Honeymoon...woo hoo! Last week's open studios were so fun, and an amazing success. We were thrilled how many people made it out to remote, little Jenner town.

We are heading down to Berkeley, Monday to drop off some of my paintings for a group show which goes up June 24th at the Collector Art Shop, and then going out to eat at this really awesome looking Japanese restaurant Ippuku, where we've reserved a special Japanese style booth/table to kick off our honeymoon. We leave Tuesday morning for the big island of Hawaii.  We are staying in a cute little beach cottage in Puako on the Kohala coast, courtesy of my sweet parents. I can't wait for some warm beach time, though I am terrified of the reaction my translucently pale skin will have once I emerge from my studio cave for sunshine. Luckily I ordered two beautiful new hats from Beliz, my Etsy friend from Turkey. Isn't the woman in the photo above adorable!

In other news, I just listed some new postcard choices in my shop, which you can mix and match for a set of five. And I am having a 15% off sale June 11th-29th, in exchange for your patience while we are out of town two weeks. Use the coupon code: HONEYMOON at checkout.
