Manila Bulletin: Pressed Flower Pieces at 10A Alabama

At the last 10A Alabama Crafts Fair, I finally debuted my new Pressed Flower pieces. And as if everything were planned, it was the first event that Mom got to help me with this bazaar season. She is the whole reason I got into the craft or artform anyways. Most the flowers I used for the pieces were pressed by her over a decade ago. It felt like everything coming full circle.

We brought with us an assortment of framed pieces, and prints and postcards of my latest pieces.

We also had the mini-zines that Mom and I collaborated on (available on iBooks, Etsy and the I TRY DIY Shop), along with a few pendants that Mom had made the morning of the fair!

I also brought with me a few of my locally made flower presses. I did a bit of wood burning the night before. Burning the I Try DIY logo was so much fun!

The best thing of all? A few of the makers from 10A Alabama were featured in Manila Bulletin! ♥ My little hummingbird was front and center.
