There are lots of websites that print artists' work on things, but I think that Society6 has great quality.

This sale might just get me to finish those tapestry designs I've been working on. In the mean time, check out my tote bags and coffee mugs at

And it's not just MY artwork that is on sale! You can get nearly anything you've ever dreamed of printed on almost any surface. Did you know they have PANTS? PANTS!

Sale ends May 25th at Midnight. Maybe Pacific time? I'm not sure, just don't wait until the last minute. Free Shipping excludes Framed Art Prints, Stretched Canvases, Rugs and Clocks.

Featured Item of the Day

Faux Taxidermy Jackalope with Flower Crown
This little jackalope lady can't wait to wear her new flower crown to the next music festival!

Rachel O's Jackalopes are each a unique work of art. I crochet each one without a pattern so every sweet bunny face is different and has their own personality.

This jackalope has been stuffed and mounted to a wood plaque measuring approx 5x7 inches. There is a hole drilled in the back, so you can hang it with a single nail (not included).

Antlers are hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Accessories and ear insides have been firmly attached with glue, but this is an art object, not a toy.

Ruler is in inches and is not included with purchase.

Colors can appear differently on different monitors. I have done my best to represent the piece accurately. If you have any questions, I encourage you to ask before purchase.

After sorting through things on Friday and hanging out on Saturday, I spent a relaxing Sunday watching TV and crocheting cactus.

Gotta be Me Garage Sale!

 Looking for some awesome garage sale action in Omaha this weekend?

I'll be at Gotta be Me's Garage sale TOMORROW at 5108 Pine Street, 8am-4pm.

Gotta be Me is a non-profit created to promote the inclusion of adults with disabilities into our communities, creating a culture that is brimming with life, dignity, and growth - for all people. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to participate in this event to help out such a great organization.
I'm clearing out old projects to make room for more fabric buttons. Bet you forgot that I used to be such a prolific crocheter!
A handful of other Handmade Omaha artists will be selling supplies, overstocks and giving their studios a bit of a spring cleaning.

It's going to be a great garage sale and proceeds go to a great cause in our community. Check Gotta Be Me, Inc. out at www.facebook.com/gottabemeinc and www.gottabeme.org and if you can't make it to the sale or you simply want to show your support for this great organization, feel free to donate at www.omahagives24.org today through May 20th.
