Art Walk at LOLO Boutique

Well I know I told a few of you at my recent shows that I might be doing a trunk show in Dec. for one of the sweet stores that so graciously sells my creations.

Well it just so happened that last week when I went to drop off a few new pieces for Lolo Boutique, Susan mentioned she had no artist for Fullerton's first Friday Art Walk. Fortuitous happenstance? Perhaps. Whatever it is, I happily accept the serendipity of this gift. So it's Bella Luna Arts, this Friday night at Lolo Boutique in downtown Fullerton.

In looking back through my posts, I realized that the last time I was featured at an Art Walk was actually last November so it's kind of perfect I think. As always, I'll have new things, but here's a few pics of the some goodies I've been crafting these days. These pieces are actually already living with their new owners (unless they were purchased for gifts)but you get the idea, for new things to come this Friday :)

Check out my side bar for details. Hope you can make it and if not hope to see you soon!
Take care, Bridgette

A huge thank you to all those lovely people who stopped by to see me this past weekend at the Irvine Fine Arts Festival. It was a really crazy week for me and my family, and in spite of the rain Friday, and the chilly air on Saturday, it turned out to be a great weekend. I'm always so amazed and humbled by those of you that come out to see and support me. Thank you. You gift me with tremendous blessings, far greater than just sales. Don't get me wrong, the sales are wonderful and allow me to continue doing what I love to do, but the encouragement from those of you who just seem "to get it" means so very much to me.

Now a few of you asked about upcoming shows and the only other one I have scheduled for this season, is The Nutcracker in Brea. Check out my side bar for more info. if you'd like to stop by.
I'll be sure to have lots of new things, since I nearly sold out in Irvine.

I'll even have a few rings

like these, I've been toying with,
waiting in my studio to be finished...
especially for you who've been asking :)

hope you like them.

Con carino,

You are a light...

Thank you for those sweet comments. It's so nice to hear from you and know you're still out there!

Much love, Bridgette

P.S. Now for a bit of a technical-type blogger question...does anyone know how to remove those GIANT spaces between my text and photos? I think it has something to do with how I upload. I tried to go back and edit the html, but to no avail...

Anyhow, if anyone knows I'd love to rid my post of those huge gaps.
Thanks again!

Where to begin...

I tried to write a post or two this summer,

even saved one in " drafts."

Just never felt quite right

about just diving back in.

After being gone for so long, it's hard to know where to start. And of course the longer I'm gone the harder it becomes.

Do I stick with the "art stuff" or try and explain why I've been gone so long? Does it really matter? Probably not. But I'm here now, with two shows fast approaching and since the art and my life are so closely entertwined anyhow, we'll give it a go...

besides, today (or what is left of today) is Dia de los Muertos! and I'm sure my Milagra girls in heaven will be right here as they always are, whenever I need them.


Sept 2001-Sept. 2011
Grandma Trini Sept.1, 1920- May 2, 2006

So what have I been doing lately, besides working my day jobs, driving kids to sports practice and trying to help my Mom secure the purchase of the "short sale" house next
door? (Yep it's true!tremendously exciting, stressful, hopeful and even a little fun)

For the wee hours left in between these things known simply as "life", I'm getting ready for a show! Here's a few peaks at some new stuff.

Still working with lots of brass,

and as always the vintage components I love, but these multi-strand pieces have been really fun.

So this weekend I'll be at 29th annual Holiday Faire in Irvine on Friday Nov.4 from 5-9pm and Saturday the 5th from 9 a.m.-4p.m. (I've lalso isted it as an Event on my Bella Luna Arts Facebook page.)

I'm so looking forward to being out among my art friends again, so if you're in town or around this weekend, be sure to stop by the show and say Hi. And if you're not, just stop by here, leave a comment or a message on my Bella Luna Arts Facebook page. It always means so much to me to hear from you. Thanks for taking the time to check in with me once again.

Take care,

stay inspired,

Bridgette :)
