We will be at Crafty Wonderland this weekend at table 128! Come say hi and meet my mom, who has declared herself the first Queen of Dorks for as long as I can remember. This apple didn’t fall too far…
We’ll have so. many. kitties! And big kitties and squid and of course a few octopi. Come check it out, get something for your own mom for Mothers’ Day or bring her along and browse the aisles. Details below:
Amy’s not dead yet, and while she’s still around she’s making cards, art and prints. Her work celebrates things from Sherlock to the Hobbit, tentacles to the TARDIS, and she shares the love at her Etsy shop and art blog.
1. What is your favorite thing to draw?
2. What do you find inspiring?
3. Do you have a favorite place or time of day to make things?
4. What does your creative process look like?
5. What colors do you find yourself using all the time?
6. There are a lot of pop culture references in your work. Just for fun, what pop culture icon would you like to meet in real life?
Amy’s work is awesome, be sure to check it out!
And Grumpy Cat and Colonel Meow want nothing to do with it. <3
this holiday is inappropriate and we do not approve.
I’ll be at the Emerald City Comic Con from March 1-3. It’s my first time at this show, and I’m really excited. Come say hi at table D-05. You know, D as in dork!
Here’s the link:
I went ahead and put the Grumpy Cat on Etsy, if you’d like to have one of your very own. Which I’m sure you do, right?
And the picture:
Clearly, dorklandia <3s Grumpy Cat!
I’ve got a total crush on Grumpy Cat. Here’s one from dorklandia:
I’m doing a giveaway for him on my facebook page right now! Enter by Monday December 10th.
I’ll be doing three weekends of holiday shows this year, which is a little bit crazy, but I’m excited!
First up is Bazaar Bizarre, December 1st & 2nd at the Concourse Center in San Francisco:
Next up, dorklandia visits Portlandia once again, for Crafty Wonderland on December 8th & 9th.
I’ll finish out the year with the lovely folks from the Renegade Craft Fair, on December 15th & 16th. I’ll have my cart for this show, but I am going to try to stay in one place as much as possible.
I hope to see you all soon!
I finally listed the tinies on etsy! Now you can have one without hunting me down.

First of all, I will be at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend! Come and see me! I’ll have my cart but I’ll be parked in one place. Here is the flyer:
Secondly, where have I been?
After the *amazing* Maker Faire this year, I was diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis. Basically, some of the disks in my neck are pushing on my spinal cord. The upshot is, I am losing feeling in my hands. It’s freaky and scary but I’m going to have surgery to fix it in a few weeks. So the last couple of weeks have been pretty crazy! Don’t fret, though. Once this is all taken care of, I’ll be back to my regular dorklandian self.
So come and say hi this weekend! It’s been a while and I’ve missed you!
I will be doing four (!?!!!) shows in May! I’m really excited about it, but it does mean I’ve been a bit hunkered down for these past couple of weeks. I’ll have some new things to show at all four shows, plus a few old favorites.
First up, I’ll be at the Vagabond Indie Craft Fair at Urban Bazaar in San Francisco, on May 5th from noon til 7pm. All the details can be found here. They’ll have a bakesale out front, and I am planning on bringing dangerous gluten-free rumballs! This is a lovely show in the backyard of this truly nifty shop in the Inner Sunset neighborhood. I love being outside all day, and this is a very relaxed and friendly event.
The PG&E Women’s Network Spring Bazaar will be a lunchtime event on Wednesday May 9th. It’s another outdoor event, with food trucks. I haven’t been able to find a lot of information about this online, but I know the PG&E Women’s Network provides scholarships. The show will be held at 77 Beale Street, near the fountain, from 11am till 4pm.
After that, I will be heading up to Portland for the excellent Crafty Wonderland show, on May 12th. This one will be at the Oregon Convention Center. I’m really excited about this one, since it’s the day before my birthday! I am taking the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Portland so I can check it all out; last year I flew up for the show and came back home on the same day and, zowie. It was a fun whirlwind of a time, but man, I was beat afters. So, I’m looking forward to seeing more than the convention center and the airport this time. Any suggestions?
The following weekend is the mighty Maker Faire! I will be part of the Bazaar Bizarre this year. The Maker Faire is a huge and fun and extra-interesting event, and I’m always happy to be even a tiny part of it. My very first show ever was in the Bazaar Bizarre at the Maker Faire back in 2007, and I’m delighted to be included again. I’m not sure if I will be bringing the ice cream cart this time, but I do hope to. More details as the time approaches. The Maker Faire will be in San Mateo on May 19th and 20th, and it’s absolutely worth checking out.
Hope to see you soon!
