To jump start the summer here in South Philadlephia (which is home to the Tootsie & Marie studio) I will be showcasing some new card designs at the Hawthorne Park Reggae concert and Arts Fair this weekend. I’m super excited since this is really the first time since my darling little babe was born that I have been able to focus on some fun new projects to sell at both the arts fair and in our Etsy shop.

And yes!

Our Etsy shop!

Another big item to announce! I began and Etsy shop for Tootsie & Marie only a week before my daughter was born. I told you… it has truly been a whirlwind these past few months. You can visit the shop here:

I will blog more about that later though. Back to the Hawthorne Park Arts Fair. The fair will begin this Sunday, June 28th at 12 noon. There will be live music all day with several other local artists showcasing their works.


We are praying for no rain, but if the day gets dampened we will be in the park the following Sunday on July 5th. Same time. If you are local, come swing by our tent and say hello! It would be great to meet you!
