To brighten your day I turned the popular Grab-a-Greeting flower postcard design into a coloring sheet you can print at home. A version of this design is also available as a set of postcards- you can find them at the Grab-a-Greeting stand at our Issaquah Studio OR at our online shop.
(Normal disclaimers- this is provided for free for your personal coloring use, please do not replicate any part for sale or for commercial use without my approval.)
*** 10/31 We are no longer taking applicants for the 2019 Historic Shell Holiday Shop. If you have applied, expect an email from Alison (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the next couple of days. If you have any questions send an email. Thanks!
We’re looking for talented local artists and craftspeople to feature in our fourth holiday shop at the Historic Shell Station in Downtown Issaquah: 232 Front St N. If you make great gifty goods we want to feature you!
This holiday shop is curated and run by Alison Lang of So, There (andsothere.com); and will focus on fun, unique, handmade gifts of all sorts. The shop will be open weekends, from Thanksgiving to New Year 2019 in beautiful, festive Downtown Issaquah.
No table or booth fees! No booth to tend! Chosen products will be sold on consignment, and artists will receive payment (minus commission) for sales following the shop’s closure in December. Artists will be responsible for dropping off stock on November 24-25, and picking it up on Dec 31-Jan 1.
If you make it, we want to see it! We are looking for handmade: fashion accessories, jewelry, pillows, candles, textiles, home accessories, small furniture pieces, journals, stationery, books, office accessories, electronic gadgets, games, children’s toys, and more! Original art pieces and locally designed items will also be considered– Please note, though, that hanging and displaying original pieces is extremely difficult in the space, which limits the kinds of pieces I can display.
A few more important things
Artists must be able to drop off stock on November 24 or 25, and pick up on December 31st or January 1st.
Shop commission is 40% to cover insurance, display, processing fees, and venue. Artist will receive 60% of sales, via check or PayPal by January 30th, 2020.
Artists must affix a price tag and business name to each item (pencil prices are ok!) Special packaging or tags are welcome.
Priority will be given to early applicants and those that are very local to Issaquah.
If you have a display or furniture piece you love to use, and are willing to lend, let us know! (Pieces may be used for other artists.)
Please fill out our Google form below to be considered for the 2019 Holiday Shop. I will send a confirmation that I have received your application within 2 days. If you don’t hear from me within 2 days, or have any problems with the application, please email me at email@example.com

Creepy right? Well, the leaves are starting to fall off the trees, and that means it’s almost time for me to start rounding up artists for this, the 5th Historic Shell Holiday Shop! Keep an eye here, and on the facebook page for the Call for Artists, at the beginning of October. (Applications will be due October 31).
I try to stick to paper, but at heart I’m a mixed media gal. I’ve been printing on fabric for pouches for a while now, but I kept getting requests for printed fabric that people can use for their own projects. Tada! These pieces of unbleached canvas have been printed on the antique letterpress and are a perfect starting place for pouches, pockets, or patches. They measure 4.5″x10″, and you can trim them to any size you like before finishing them off. I’m excited to try some of my other designs on fabric. Are there any you’d like to see? Email me!
Visit the 4th Historic Shell Holiday Shop in Downtown Issaquah, opening November 23. We’ve put together a fun collection of useful gifts from more than 45 local artists, designers and makers. You can find ceramics, art kits, cards, journals, screen printed clothing, knitted goods, jewelry, holiday decoration…. you get the idea!
Come see us at the Historic Shell Station, 232 Front Street North
Open Nov 23-Dec 30, Fri-Sun 12-6PM.
