I’m back again with free shipping and a gift with purchase at my online store, Sick Shoppe, and to offer a select shopping guide in honor of Small Business Saturday!
When you are finished taking advantage of my Small Business Saturday Steal, please check out the following small businesses based in Michigan and beyond! Some are offering holiday deals of their own! I wanted to do what I could to help some of my fellow indie authors, artists, and crafters by offering links to their wares during this big shopping weekend. Let us not forget to support small and local today.

No, it’s isn’t vampires again. But I’m doing art. And that’s a good thing!
This past weekend was the DIYpsi Indie Art Summer Festival in Ypsilanti, Michigan. A long-time friend of mine, Celena Lopez, who is the talented crafter behind Diosa de la Luna, put a request out on facebook for someone to contribute art to be used in a tabletop display. I happened to see the request and was excited to take on the challenge. She was happy with the result and used it as part as her colorful and inviting table top display of wares. I went to the art fair on Sunday and got to see my artwork in action and look at all her neat things.
It was a fun show held at Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery. I hadn’t been to an art show in years. I miss them. Aside from the Michigan humidity, it was a great day. I was impressed by the sense of community DIYpsi fosters for local artists and crafters. I’m looking forward to attending more Diosa de la Luna and DIYpsi shows in the future.
Here is my fox hoop art from Diosa de la Luna. Please visit her website for more of Celena’s adorable handmade home decor!
