How to create an art fair booth in 4 days

Leftys first booth EVER - Temecula 1st Friday Art Event

The Leftys first booth EVER – Temecula 1st Friday Art Event

Hey all!

This blog is going to be taking a different direction starting this Full Moon in Libra. Like I mentioned in my last post, it’s taken me 15 years to work up the courage to create an entire art booth devoted solely to my Lefty art. But now that I have, I’m not gonna stop…my goal is to get into some of the shows I call ‘millenial/GenX’ shows which are sooo different from the ‘boomer’ shows I’ve been doing over the last 20 some years with my very popular LuLu in Laguna artwork (which I’m retiring by the way other than still selling LuLu cards wholesale to the mermaid stores that love them).

So, to sum up the Lefty’s debut show of which I had no expectations whatsoever regarding sales because heck, it’s Temecula and it’s a brand new town that doesn’t really have any art galleries that anyone knows about, so the crowd was sparse but the folks that were there were interested in talking about art which was a very good thing. This town has potential and it’s changing fast so we’re all hopeful.

Anyways, I met with lots of folks who are quite involved with what little art scene we do have here and got invited to show my work at several shows and events.

I did notice that my Lefty cards and my small Lefty booth sign were not easily read (if at all) by older folks and I even had one man look quite disgusted when I trotted out my little spiel about painting my leftys using my non dominant left hand (perhaps he thought it was the work of the devil?  heck I dunno), but  I do KNOW that I’m NOT a salesperson. I don’t have that special something required; never have, never will, but I do plan on hiring someone sparkly to sell for me at shows. I myself plan to be in the back of the booth giving Creative Soul Readings with my Lefty deck which is something else that these Millenial/Gen X shows (let’s call them ‘XY shows’ from hereon out, okay?)  DO allow readings – kewl!  …because I’m almost certain the Boomer shows would not like that at all!

Next up is a new online shop for my Leftys (Shopify platform), new banners for my blog and facebook to match my Storenvy banner – it’s all got to be consistent, of course plus my first wholesale order from a shop in San Diego (just waiting for the owner to pick out her faves).  Then purchase some really cute envelopes for the Lefty Cards, perhaps in a fun pastel-ey color. I also need to hire a booth helper/salesperson for shows and then apply and actually get into said shows!  I may start an Instagram account and look into making Lefty resin necklaces and rings also.  The Artist’s Circle which I’m starting this month in cahoots with 3 other kick ass artists will hopefully prove to be a wonderful support group for helping all of us keep it together whilst living out here in cowboy land!

So, stay tuned…I plan on adding more of this kind of writing to my blog plus update the pix I posted here once new ones come in (I had a nice group of photographers snap my booth). We all gotta start somewhere, right?

Lefty Display by Kathy Crabbe

Lefty art booth display props and cards by Kathy Crabbe

Last, but not least, I created (and branded) this entire booth display and all the products in it in 4 days!  I went crazy at Michaels buying vintage, shabby chic props (in a record 10 minutes – they were closing) as well as absconding my husband’s childhood desk (which belonged to his grandma before him), an antique caned chair and a really cool turquoise taboret from Ikea. I touched up my Lefty artwork scans using Photoshop and then printed them on Mohawk color copy card stock using an Epson 2200 printer and archival pigment inks. My prints (I only had 4) were printed on Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster which ended up suiting the Leftys better than the very expensive Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper. I only featured  Leftys I’d painted in the previous 2 years to keep things consistent design-wise plus I did bring some old copies of Lefty poetry zines and postcard zines that I had made in the mid 2000’s.

Libra Full Moon ~ awaken the kiss within

The Kiss by Kathy Crabbe

The Kiss who awakens within you by Kathy Crabbe

Full Moon in Libra
April 4, 2015, 5:05 am Pacific Time
Total Lunar Eclipse: 5:01 am Pacific Time

This Full Moon let’s dance in partnership with all our relations; not just loved ones, but everyone. Let’s make all our interactions a dance. The style of dance is up to you…slow and steady, raucous and loud, fiery, sharp, jiggly, juicy…take your pick. What are YOU sharing with others right now, today, tomorrow, over the next coupla full moon days?

As for me, I’m debuting my Lefty Art (cards & prints) for the first time in a booth devoted solely to them – finally! It’s only taken 15 years to work up the courage. Why so long?  Because I thought they were too weird and that the world wasn’t ready for them yet, but after doing the exercise below I realized they are PERFECT and so perfectly imperfect; just like me and you and everyone else we know…so there! It’s taken me years to get over a feeling of ‘not being good enough’ but I’m getting there… I am. How?  By being myself and standing in my truth and by sharing my truth as I’m doing here…by relegating $ anxiety to the wayside which is not easy at all and it’s taken a long, long time, but things DO change; for that is something we CAN rely upon. Oh ya, and the other BIGGIE was that I just could not let go of my other work and by that I mean show off in equal measure, both online and at art shows my other styles of art work: the LuLu Series, the Divine Feminine Series, the Aliens, the Magical Folk Art and on an on, but I needed to FOCUS and not confuse folks with all these different styles and for me, the Leftys are IT; they are my heart and soul and they need my full attention and YOURS! This quote from the book, The Twelve Wild Swans sums things up:

Up until now, Rose has followed her call, her intuition, her river. Now she must simply let go and allow herself to be carried away. In any initiation, there comes a moment when the initiate must give over control. In any creative process, there comes a moment when the work takes over, the characters come alive and take on a will of their own.  In ritual, the true moments of ecstasy occur when we let the power move us. But for those moments to happen, the basket needs to be woven, the container needs to be strong. ~  The Twelve Wild Swans. by Starhawk and Hilary Valentine: Rituals, Exercises & Magical Training in the Reclaiming Tradition

Venus, (the Goddess of love and beauty) rules the sign of Libra and in my astrological birth chart She packs an extra wollop ’cause my Venus is in the sign of Libra AND in the 7th House (the Libra House) so I’m going to be sharing my beauty this Full Moon in the form of cards and prints displayed in a lovely, shabby chic booth. My two main props are oooold! The green desk was antique when my husband inherited it as a boy and it’s where he did all his homework growing up. The chair was hand caned by his dad, several times actually. I didn’t know that the Leftys would fit in with this particular style, but it all came together so organically after countless hours online spent researching booth and card rack designs at fab indie fairs like the Renegade and Crafty Wonderland.

To discover your own style, your brand, your dance, take time to go within during this Full Moon to find your quiet center. Then, look around you at your space; what objects are you in love with that are calling to you? Think about their colors, their feel, and any words that could describe them. Why are they so meaningful to you? Do this quickly while jotting things down in your Moon Journal.

Now, in 3 words sum up your personal style as depicted by all your fave objects surrounding you and make those words matter for they express you; your love, your heart, your soul.

My 3 words: Sweet, natural, earthy
My 3 colors: yellow, purple, red
Fave objects: a tiny handmade ceramic vase (cute, with swirly designs and a praying mantis), wildflowers, a letterpressed mermaid card, books

Pisces New Moon Reading: b is for beauty mark

B is for beauty mark by Kathy Crabbe

B is for beauty mark by Kathy Crabbe

This New Moon Reading is going to be quite different from all my others…hmmmm, maybe because it’s in Pisces? A dreamy, watery, très magical kinda sign. So I sit before my altar which is all decked out in Pisces finery with a bowl full of cucumber, lettuce, and willow snippets and some Piscean gemstones (aquamarine and moonstone) and I sit…and I sit…Then I hear the words: just put pen to paper and the words will come. So I do.

With my paints, brushes and stones in hand, I say to Goddess…O Goddess I am readying myself for Spring and this New Moon in Pisces. What do you want of me?

And I hear Her say, “No word necessary”.

And so I paint and a Lefty Mermaid appears…’b is for beauty mark’ (to the left).

If you too are seeking inspiration to help find your way out of the deep (it IS a Pisces Moon after all; a watery sign represented by two fishes) then I hope that ‘beauty mark’ and her magical mirror can lead you deeper within, to where you soul calls out.

When setting your intentions for the upcoming New Moon and Spring Equinox ( which is like New Years for many of us) the best time to do that is at the exact moment of the New Moon which is on Friday, March 20 at 2:36 am PDT (kinda early, so maybe set intentions when you wake up or before you go to sleep) and the Spring Equinox is on the same day- woohoooo…double power!

The original painting above is available as are prints and cards.

Calling Mz Perfect; it’s the Virgo Full Moon!

Gabriel and the golden bird by Kathy Crabbe

Gabriel and the golden bird by Kathy Crabbe

Full Moon in Virgo: March 5, 10:05 am PST

Being a Virgo Full Moon, this is a practical, get-it-done kinda moon with not a lot of emphasis on dreaming. With Mercury, planet of communication and short trips going forward now (as of March 3) we are finally ready to push forward.

To the left is an inspirational card for you I’ve pulled from my Lefty Deck; what does it say to you?

I hear Miss Manners in the wings: we call upon you now to guide us in kindness and love, to heal and ground us and others in need. Moon Circles or Full Moon Readings like this one help us to do just that. They help us to center and focus and find clarity within.

With the Full Moon in Virgo we clear away the dross becoming pure again and we ask God/dess for guidance. What areas of your life require more clarity and focus? Ask the Secretary Goddess, Mz Perfect to guide you. In what ways could your life benefit from a clearer purpose? What is blossoming for you right now and how could the Divine Secretary help you trim and tend your garden? Ask your heart and soul for guidance and tell the truth!

Remember to look back at the intentions you set at the New Moon (Feb. 18) making it easier for your own Golden Bird to lay her Golden Eggs at the Full. Then let it all go at the Waning Moon, releasing it like a balloon or egg, knowing that you’ve done good work here today in our Full Moon Circle. Blessed Be.Kathy's Creative Soul Circle

Calling all psychic students and tarot card readers: it’s the first ever Psychic Roundtable in Temecula, California where we’ll all get to practice our divination skills on one another in a safe, private, home environment surrounded by great art and architecture plus munchies afterwards. More details here: Psychic Roundtable  (3rd Saturdays from 11-3 pm)

Find Inner Solace: Aquarius New Moon Intentions

It’s a time for new beginnings as we center, focus and go within for this New Moon in Aquarius (Feb. 18 at 3:47 pm PST). With Goddess Nut and my mentor, Francesca De Grandis by my side I channel this New Moon Reading for you.

As the stars shine bright, I can feel that my heart is heavy and in need of healing and tears so I call again upon God/dess to aid me; to allow me to go deeper within and to discover why. I also ‘work’ with an obsidian sphere (aurora borealis) to help with this; an excellent stone for just this purpose. I won’t go into my discussion with my guides and gods other than to say; it helped and I recommend it to all of you who are struggling, sad and feeling weighted down. Create a circle to call upon this New Moon or find a Circle. I offer New Moon Circles all over. Then create ritual to call upon the Moon, your gods and the Divine and go within to commune with your own heart, soul and cells to find inner solace, answers or perhaps just more questions.

Obsidian Sheen SphereObsidian’s Song

Blessed Be
this starry nite
with eyes bright.
I breathe into the Earth
and into the stars and into
the God/dess within.
I release my breath into a song one note long
Three times
feeling the release and the Earth beneath my feet.
I AM a light
in the night

I AM blessed
I AM guided
I AM god/dess.

Now you are ready to set your intentions for the month ahead. As you do this be still again and connect with your heart’s goals, tempered with your own innate wisdom and lit by the stars. Be not afraid to stretch, stretch, stretch into realms un-reachable. Aquarius energy encourages this so use it to be radical, far out, yet still connected to the collective unconscious because Aquarius understands how. Trust that. GO!

Open Your Heart: Full Moon in Leo

Leo Goddess by Kathy Crabbe

Leo Goddess by Kathy Crabbe

Breathe deeply and allow this Full Moon to wash over you. In our astrological charts the moon represents the mother and where we feel most comfortable emotionally. What feels like home to you and how do you turn a house into a home?  Take a moment to contemplate what this means for you.  If you know what sign your moon is in then add that knowing to the mix as well.  If you need help finding the moon in your birth chart then check out my Moon Charts here.

I happen to have a double Aquarius Moon (ie. my Moon is in the sign of Aquarius in the 11th house, the Aquarius house). I feel at home in groups and with friends and I’m also just fine being by myself doing ‘so called’ odd or unusual things such as what I’m doing here on this blog! I love meditating in groups — the energy feels more intense and awesome.  I love learning in groups especially when the teacher thinks creatively or better yet CHANNELS the class material on the spot which is something I like to do for my  classes; that way each class is unique and hopefully transformational.

Caava Kicks Butt by Kathy Crabbe

Caava Kicks Butt by Kathy Crabbe

Full Moon in Leo Oracle Card: Caava Kicks Butt

Time to sink, sink, sink into your subconscious. It’s Mercury Retrograde right now so it’s not time yet to move forward (wait until Feb. 11 or better yet wait until the Mercury shadow period is over and we’re entering the Spring Equinox on March 20.)

This moon is gonna be a deeply felt and intensely emotional moon so be kind to yourself now.  Take time to connect and reach out to extended family or friends you haven’t spoken to for a while; perhaps contact a medium to connect with an ancestor who has passed over or put in a dream request to ‘see’ them again.  It’s time now to ask for guidance and healing from friends, your guides or the Divine.

This Full Moon is also very close to the holy day of Imbolc (Candlemas) which marks the half way point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox on the Wheel of the Year. This usually occurs around Feb. 2, but this year it technically falls on Feb. 4.  Traditionally this is a time of initiation, a time of quickening and a time when farmer’s ewe’s (sheep) began to lactate (the Gaelic word for ewe’s milk is “oimelc”).  Imagine taking that first long drink of fresh ewe’s milk — take the time to really savour it, then give your imagination free reign.

Behold by Kathy Crabbe

Lefty Oracle Card for the Immediate Future: Behold

Imagine yourself one year from now. What do you see? Jot down a few things.

I imagine all of us being in tune with ourselves more and more, just as we stay in tune with the New and Full Moons through these blog posts. Our intuition is stronger and we know what we need to be healthy, whole and holy. We love with all our hearts, we garden, we grow and we bake creatively. We do our part and we touch others on an energetic level. We also make time for rest and we find solace in our spirituality and in nature.

Re-connect with Goddess: Aquarius New Moon

Kathy Crabbe altar

Kathy’s altar

As I sit in front of my altar for the upcoming New Moon in Aquarius on Jan. 20 with Goddess Freya and my mentor, Francesca De Grandis close by, I contemplate, I channel, I remember and I write.

I need this New Moon Time to re-connect with God/dess, to be with my community and to receive inspiration that I share with all of you.

I don’t blog to share my woes, but instead to share glimpses of brilliance, of Faerie, of hope and magick.

sapphire sphereSapphire’s Song (to be sung outside to the New Moon)

I am blessed O’ Mother
to be here at Your birth
To sing Your name
O Goddess Divine Moon Mama
To sing wooohooo
To be silly AND strong
For Aquarius calls us
to be Trickster AND Divine
We ARE the bridge
to You to You to You.

Now the Real Work begins by Kathy Crabb

Now the Real Work begins (oracle card) by Kathy Crabbe

Creative Soul Guidance and Oracle Card Pick: Now the real work begins

Relax into the flow. It is the time of the Water-bearer (New Moon in Aquarius) although Aquarius is actually an air sign; bringing water and air together which is also what’s happening astrologically as Venus and Mercury conjoin in the sky. Love/emotions (water) and thought/communication (air) come together and the air is fragrant with it – what do you smell?

Stay on track with the loves of your life. Who and what are they? Give thanks. Let this love and the love of the Divine wash over you; melt into it; feel your body awash in love and blessings. Don’t hold onto it – share it.

Then open your eyes and send that love out through your heart and back into the world and with an open heart and mind, set your intentions for the moonth ahead.

Also, be aware that Mercury Retrograde is coming up on Jan. 21 until Feb. 11 and plan accordingly. There may be delays, miscommunication and set backs so it’s a good time to review and revise, not charge full steam ahead.
