Alright so I’ve got about 15 minutes before I gotta go pick up kiddo so I though now would be a good time for a quick post.
I’ve been working on some new stickers as well, I’ve got three “Portland, Maine” themed stickers so far. I definitely plan on doing more, as well as a few Westbrook designs for my town and the music nights in August.
I know this was a quick one, but I wanted to stay somewhat consistent. I hope to see some of you folks in Biddeford this weekend!
2023, I have hit the ground running. So much has happened since I posted about the show at Local and I feel bad for not being on top of sharing with you guys. I hate sitting in front of the computer, it feels like it is taking away time from myself, but I forget. CONNECTION. This is a great way for me to connect to you guys. Let you know what I’m trying, and what I’m thinking in a little deeper way than on social media. So, every week you’ll find me here. Bear with me as I learn to convey my thoughts through writing. I will apologize in advance for any grammatical errors. I also plan on writing with a stream of conscience. You’ve been warned and enjoy!
This brings me to a huge and new and long overdue change here at Creighton Studios. I started using a planner, which is just crazy and a level of organization I’ve never had. Kind of ridiculous to say “out loud” but let me just say it’s never to late to get a little more ORGANIZED, even if it takes you a thousand tries. Also, do something that just works for you, don’t worry about what it looks like. Organization is the only way I will be able to keep up with posting here so wish me luck.
Finally, and maybe the most important, you can now find me at FREEPORT MARKET. If you are up shopping at the outlets, you can now find Creighton Studios shirts, hats, prints, stickers and magnets! Feels pretty good to be rubbing shoulders with the big name brands so don’t forget to support local!
As always find available work HERE and thanks as always,
I love hanging at Local 188, such a beautiful setting directly on Congress Street in the heart of Portland, Maine. Here are a few shots of the show. Many of the pieces are available, so if you are interested please shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
I have to admit I burnt myself out last winter and have been hiding in my cave ever since… kinda. After a lot of holiday fairs and great times with better people I had a hard time settling back into the studio. I used it as opportunities to try a bunch of stuff that I didn’t really care about, or I guess that’s wrong. I didn’t care if they came out well. I look forward to sharing some of that stuff in the near future.
As always you can get my work at The Merchant Co., Foundation Brewing (thanks to everyone who has bought a piece recently, wow!), and Definitive Brewing in Portland. Brook City Nutrition in Westbrook and Locally Handmade in the Kittery Outlets are also options.
I feel like I am finally finding some balance between everything in my new(ish) life change. So expect more here. I know, I know, I know you’ve heard it all before.
What a great month! It was so fantastic to meet so many folks at Castleberry Fairs Alton Bay show! I had a great time chatting with people and we were **pretty** lucky that it didn’t rain too much.
I also got to take a test spin on our new dog water bowl, sticker board and banner!
But honestly July was mostly about recharging our batteries… we spent a few days camping in the White Mountains with friends. I left feeling inspired by rocks and chipmunks, both overrun the campground we have been going to the last few years.
Every year we also take a vacation with my extended family on Lake Winnipisaukee, we have been doing it for over 20 years. It is why the Lakes Region in NH is so special to me. The lake leaves me breathless even after all these years. I absolutely love it.
This week has been getting back into the swing of things, and gearing up for my fair on August 7th, here in Maine. Details to come!
I’ve been buzzing in the studio since my last post here. It’s been exciting seeing the amount of work I can get done in a week now. I am working on getting into more of a routine from day to day, but I haven’t gotten there yet. My current routine is kind of like O SQUIRREL! (I work on whatever) Also, maybe that doesn’t have to change…
In the last two weeks I have hung a show in Keene, NH, participated in a fair in Saco, ME and have been able to fly around to the different places that carry my work and keep them better stocked. It’s been magical.
So thanks, thanks everyone. Everyone who helped run shows, all my friends at the various businesses that allow me to sell of their walls, all the people who laugh and smile at my work at shows, and especially for everyone who has purchased work and let me keep on rocking. Cheers.
Also! Catch me this weekend in Peterborough, NH for their 5th annual art walk!
