I've been working away in my sweatshop over the past few weeks getting things ready for the Walden Artisan Market this weekend! They have been doing these fun shows almost every month since December - This is the first one I have been able to do and I am really excited about it! I have made new bags, clutches, aprons, pin cushions and initial onesies for the little ones! If your in Nashville this weekend- stop on by! Its right across the street from Rosepepper in East Nashville- Saturday from 9a.m - 5p.m and Sunday 11a.m - 4 p.m. The Mas Taco truck will be there too.....I might actually be more excited about the delicious tacos then the show itself!! Here is a little sneak peak of what I will have at the Market!!
Next up Bridal Couture - I am headed to the Outer Banks for my sister's wedding on Tuesday! I am making the bridal bags...which I have yet to start- yikes!

I was contacted by the beehive co-op in Atlanta last month about carrying kelly marie designs in their store. I was thrilled- I have been working so hard at getting my work out there and when a store like the beehive has seen your work and comes to you- it makes it all worth while! I quickly got some pieces together and headed down for a meeting. I was blown away by the store- there are so many unique and talented designer's featured! I was honored to be asked to be apart of the hive!
You can learn more about the other artists at the beehive co-op at http://www.beehiveco-op.com/atlanta-designers.asp
I then went home and began plugging away at my sewing machine trying to get as many pieces together as possible. It's hard for me to be as pro-active with all of this as I would like to be. Working full time and having two roommates makes it difficult for me to stay focused! I managed to meet my goal and now kelly marie designs is proudly displayed at the beehive co-op!!
If your in Atlanta next week you should stop by the beehive co-op on March 28th- everything is 25% off! It's a great opportunity for you to stock up on some beautiful spring accessories!!!
