Here is a list of my 2022 Wisconsin art and craft fairs (as always, it’s subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen events):

DeForest, June 4

Baraboo, June 18

Mt. Horeb, July 16-17

Agora (Fitchburg), August 20

Paoli, September 3-4 (This is a newly-organized art fair and we hope you’ll give it a try. Paoli is an enjoyable, lovely, art-centered small community.)

Holy Hill, September 17

My origami art is also available for sale year-round at the Pink Llama Gallery in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.

Please scroll down past the ads to see previous posts with photos of my work.

It will be great to see familiar faces and to meet new visitors to our booth. Be well.

Once again, I’d like to explain that I have no control over the ads that are shown on my blog and I receive absolutely no compensation from them. They are the ‘price’ users pay for being able to use this platform. Thank you for your patience with them. Please scroll down beyond the ads to see additional posts.

My 2022 schedule is still in the planning/application stage. Watch for updates as the schedule develops.

Many of us have been feeling distressed and saddened by recent events in Ukraine. Rather than feel completely hopeless, I’ve started a project I call ‘Cranes for Ukraine.’ They’re made from sunflower-motif paper, as a symbol of that country. As the tag indicates, a portion of the sale price of each of these will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a wonderful organization helping to feed the refugees and victims of the war. Thank you for your support!

Please watch for updates as my 2022 fair season schedule is being planned. Hopefully, we’ll be able to participate in more shows this year than in the previous couple of years. Thank you!

Welcome back to my origami blog for 2019!

I’ve been working with some bright new floral papers and pretty beads, including crystals, which I hope you’ll enjoy.  I think we all need a touch of spring right now after such a long winter.

Our first show for 2019 will be the UW-Washington County Festival of Arts in West Bend on Saturday, April 6, 2019, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It’s always an enjoyable show, with friendly people and high-quality crafts for sale.  The event also features a student artwork competition with young artists from more than 25 area middle and high schools. The student artwork will be professionally judged, with an awards ceremony at noon.  Various seminars and musical performances will take place throughout the day.  I look forward to seeing you there, or perhaps at one of our other fairs later in the summer.  The venue is at 400 S. University Drive, West Bend, Wisconsin.

I’ll publish the rest of our (tentative) 2019 schedule in another post.

Again, I want to apologize for the ads which may appear for some viewers.  I don’t have control over them.

IMG_0471It has come to my attention that advertisements sometimes appear for certain viewers of this blog.

My blog is hosted by a free service called WordPress. This service says it sometimes posts ads “to help pay the bills.”

While I understand that WordPress has expenses to meet, I want my viewers to know that I do not have control over these ads, and that I do not select nor endorse any of these advertisers or their products or services. Thank you for understanding.




Hello Everyone!

We’re excited to announce the start of our 2018 Art and Craft Fair Season!

Most of our applications are still pending.  So far, we are pleased to say that we will be attending the UW Washington County Festival of Arts in West Bend, Wisconsin on April 14.  It’s always an enjoyable fair with a very friendly atmosphere.

We have done a lot of traveling since my last post—hence, the travel-themed cranes shown above.

I’ve acquired many new styles of paper and beads since last year and have started working on some colorful and different creations. If you’ve been to our booth before, you’ll see some new paper designs this year.

As usual, we look forward to seeing craft-fair friends this year and meeting new ones.
