So my friend Ronda and I got
a booth in an antique/craft place
 about 2 weeks ago.
Now you guys know I will shout out about my kids
but I am kinda quiet when it comes 
to shouting out for me.

Something I need to work on.
Jo Packham told me that
way back when she was here 
shooting my house.
She almost yelled at me.
So have most of my close friends, 
for that matter..
many of them bopping me on the head.

When folks want to shoot or see my house,
I am always a bit surprised cause well..
it's just my house..
Or when they buy my creations I am surprised.
I know I like them, but I never assume others will also 
enjoy my folk art.

so anyhoot....
we got this booth and in two days had to
burlap the walls and light and drape it, make a chandelier,
paint some furniture.
We walked my back yard for displays and we
scrambled to make stuff to just get it up and started 
because the place,
Goat Feathers in Boulder City
 reopened a week ago.

Here is my quiet little announcement

Nettie & Elsie

Piper Zane Creations

Ronda of PZ will have incredible pillows, tutus, t-shirts and
bags etc..all hand printed, embroidered and sewn 
right here in Henderson.

I will be doing a variety of paper and sewn folk art 
just like I have the past 30 years.
Totes and Banners, Tags and Holiday

We're so new we don't
 even have good photos yet.
Maybe this weekend.

We'll throw in some antiques, 
a few retail treasures,
but mostly
it'll be us,
sewing, printing and making 
pieces by hand and with love.

I hope you'll support us
encourage us
visit us
and yes, we do custom orders on nearly everything 
and yes, we will ship.

A FB page is coming soon
My Instagram has started up, so you can follow us;
see my upper right sidebar, and please do follow me...
my followers number there is embarrassing, 
seeing as how I have posted a dozen pics in three years.
I'm tackling a huge learning
curve every day. YIKES

To my local pals,
come see us soon.
I'm learning from Ronda the best places
 to eat and shop up there.
To my far away friends..one more reason to come visit
and stay in one of the guest rooms.

oh and hang with me here
there may be another banner Gathering brewing..
email me if you are interested.

So exciting! I've had a shop brewing back in my mind for years, maybe one of these days when we settle down in one place for good, I'll do it, meanwhile I'll watch you fly first. Best of luck with your new venture!

So excited for you. Having lived in Boulder City for six years till a few years ago, I was in Goatfeathers when it opened its doors. Left in 2010 as I moved to Florida. Can't wait to see your booth when I visit in a few months.

Came upon your blog shortly after leaving Boulder City, and was disappointed I hadn't I did get to meet you. Love your blog.
