Art After Dark

This past weekend, the First Saturday Arts Market changed its schedule to evening hours.  In Houston, TX in June, you've got to do everything you can to beat the heat!  Set-up was pretty brutal, but then we were all rewarded with oodles of nice customers, great food and music, and pleasant evening temperatures.  This time, I decided to bring some of my new custom plush and other critters:

Our friend and booth-mate Leisa, of McCord Works, brought her beautiful handmade jewelry and doilies:

Wage is a big fan!

Time for a snack.  Those fried mac and cheese balls from It's a Wrap looked pretty yummy...

Then it was time for dessert...  I'd post an actual photo of my scrumptious cake ball  from Mr. Zrake's Cakes here, but it was gone in a split second!  You'll have to be content with a photo from his Facebook Page:

This was the "Fat Mint," which may now be my new favorite flavor!  My other faves are the Red Velvet and the Peanut Butter.  He was very kind to give me this cool mug as well:

Must remember to get more cake balls...

After our snacks, Leisa and I matched up some of her doilies with the critters- we thought they looked fab!


The FSAM is such a fun place- even the artists who are not showing that month frequently stop by to say hi, and spend some time relaxing...  It was nice to have a visit from our FSAM friends Cozmo and Merriweather- Wage really enjoyed taking this photo with them!


The next First Saturday Arts Market will be held on Saturday, 7 July 2012, from 6-10 pm.  See you there!
