If you find yourself at Austin Bergstrom Intl Airport (ABIA) any time between now and mid October, please take a moment to check out the wonderful Handmade Austin Women exhibit on display upstairs. I’m so thrilled to be part of this wonderful group of talented women.
Also, Blue Genie Art will soon be opening a retail shop located at The Oasis. In rebuilding after the terrible fire out there, they have expanded the restaurant and they have designed and built a number of retail outlets next door to the restaurant. While not open just yet, the Blue Genie store will be open year round and for those of you familiar with the Blue Genie Art Bazaar, the store will be like a mini version of the Bazaar. More to come on this when I have details about the exact dates and times. I’ll have a large assortment of cards available at the BG store. Thanks Dana and Kevin!
Many of you know my dear friend Spike Gillespie, writer and blogger extraordinaire.

Here is her blog post http://tinyurl.com/3zaxjm5
I’ll be there doing a crochet demo there from 4-6, so if anyone wants to stop by and hang out and crochet, we’d love to see you!
Oh, and Moxie has moved! It now lives with Solid Gold on 1601 E. 5th (at Comal), Austin, TX 78702. If you’re looking for flower hair clips and cards Moxie is a great place to find them.

Make your cat a happy cat and treat it to a Magic Cat Ball! Order your own custom color cat ball or leave it to me to make one up for you. Each toy is handmade with durable double-stranded acrylic yarn and is stuffed with a pouch of organic cat nip, a bell and some cotton material. Magic Cat Balls can be found on my Etsy site under “Textiles”.

If you have been keeping up with my friend Carl’s “You’ve Got Mail” Project then be sure to pencil in January 21st on your calendar. That evening, Carl will be showing much of the “art mail” he has received over this last year. It’ll be here in Austin and hopefully I’ll have details soon. Or you can contact him through the link above. I’m really looking forward to seeing the array of mail and art combined.
I am very excited to announce that now CARDS, HAIR CLIPS, HATS and MAGIC CAT BALLS (Best Cat Toy EVER!) from Ann Woodall Studios can now be found at Moxie in Austin!
Kayci has chosen a wonderful new location for Moxie at 1200 E. 11th st (suite #105) in Austin, TX and has filled this terrific shop with all kinds of work from local artists and craftspeople… jewelry, clothing, prints, gifts… you name it! It’s also within walking distance of many other shops, eateries and bars so be sure to stop by and check it out.
And if you are out of town, the hats , hair clips, blankets and cat toys can be found on my Etsy page and cards and prints maybe be purchased right here on this site.
Soon to come: Photos from the Rally for Sanity in Washington D.C. AND Info for Sleeping Dog Art Show and Sale AND Info for Blue Genie Art Bazaar. All coming up very very soon.
Have a lovely day,
My friend Carl loves the art of correspondence. For fun, he sends to his friends cards, letters, pieces of board games with an address and a stamp stuck on it… and I have to say, it is a joy to receive these little treasures from him in the mail. Over this last year, Carl has taken his love of correspondence to a whole new level: He has opened it up to the world with his “You’ve got Mail” project, with the whole thing culminating in an art show (here in Austin, TX) presenting much of what he has and is continuing to receive.
To join up, listen in or just get more information, visit the official Facebook page here: You’ve Got Mail Facebook or shoot Carl and email to get on his newsletter mailing list: email@example.com
And if you’re looking for the perfect place to find cards… I know just where you should go!
Smile! See Cards from Ann Woodall Studios!
Next week I’ll be adding more flower hair clips and hats to the Etsy shop. If you’re in Austin, take some time to swing by Crofts Boutique on South Congress. Not only does she carry a fantastic array of hand picked clothing, she also carries a wide selection of my flower hair clips as well as cards from Ann Woodall Studios. Then you can head across the street for a cupcake at the Hey Cupcake! trailer. There’s a lot to see and do on South Congress these days.
Have a great day!
Welcome to the new Ann Woodall Studios website! Now, finding cards, prints, hats and hair clips is just a click away. I’ll be adding new images regularly, as well as various fun and new items to the Etsy store… Cat toys, coming soon! Tested, approved and often lost under the piano by none other than Suki, Ohio and even Budwina. If you haven’t checked out the cards in awhile, the selection has quadrupled over the last few months and it continues to grow and grow. And at only $3 a card!
The Autumn and Winter shows will be here in no time and I’ll have all the information listed here on the site once I have it in hand. Also, I plan to use this blog and this site to introduce and showcase fellow artists, creative and innovative ideas and organizations, as well as just fun stuff that rolls across the path so be sure to keep us on your radar.
Thanks for checking in and we’ll see you again soon.
