I’m excited to share something I've been thinking about doing for the last two years and it's finally time to take the leap! Craftcation: Business + Makers Conference is an annual life-changing four-day event featuring industry professionals leading attendees in over 100+ hands-on DIY workshops and creative business classes.
I've run different types of businesses, been a teacher, and now I'm back in school and I'm not really sure what comes next. I'm not saying Craftcation will have all the answers, but it's certainly going to be a great place to start. At Craftcation you can take a vacation while making things with awesome people, get help with new businesses or take existing ones to the next level, and network with people in similar experiences.
If you’re a maker, blogger or creative business owner then join me for four inspiring days that you’ll never forget. Craftcation has over 100 hands-on workshops and business classes, so whether you’re coming to craft, grow your business or a little bit of both, there’s lots of making, meeting and learning in store for you.
Craftcation takes place April 3-7, 2019, in the beach town of Ventura, CA – about an hour north of Los Angeles. Craftcation utilizes Ventura’s historic downtown buildings and businesses as well as the beach for special events like networking meet & greets, cocktail socials, a pop-up shop, opening celebration, yoga, as well as food and art tours.
Registration opens 10.5.18 and the first 50 people to register get $50 off!

Hi Friends! Happy March. I've been working hard on all things Morose Bee these last few weeks including this new website, streamlining products, and applying to local craft shows. In lieu of all of the changes, I thought it only fitting that I upgrade and update my blogging platform. Blogging is such a crucial part of my creative process so I'm excited for these new improvements. I will probably backlog some of my old posts here as well.
In the meantime, check out all the new products in my Etsy shops and stay tuned for craft show dates!
If you check into my shop with any regularity, you may have noticed I've been posted more and more Vintage Finds lately. A few of these items have already sold and I'm excited to share more and more with Etsy browsers. Here's a bit of a shop update!
I've missed thrifting, collecting vintage, and the hunt of a good find. Many of the items that I've sold on Etsy are pieces that I've had for many years. There used to be a street in my old neighborhood named Antique Alley where my friends and I would bother the thrift shop attendants as 10 year olds tend to bother everybody. I've been on the hunt for new items as some vintage stores around my new Boston neighborhood. My best recent find was a stack of a few gently loved books for only 99 cents! They will be perfect for the children's art programs I do once a week.
And, of course, I found a few gems to keep adding to Etsy! Keep an eye on the shop to see what I've found.
We've had record amounts of snow here in Boston which makes going outside to take photos of jewelry quite a challenge. At one point, my camera even fell over in the snow! But I still managed to get some photos of a new line of necklaces I'm doing! Hooray! You can check them out on my Etsy shop. I plan on doing a full range of the letters of the alphabet to make necklaces that can be used to spell out words, worn layered for initials, or worn individually. So far I only have the letters D and B posted. There's no significance to that, those are just the letters that I grabbed first to photograph.
I hope every is having a fabulous new year!
Just a San Francisco gal sharing creative pursuits, inspiration, and other things that interest me.
