Hi All.

Well its time to put down in writing all the events I'll be doing this holiday season. Lots of varied venues throughout the city of San Francisco. I decided to stay local this year - closer to the familia and familia of friends.

Here's where you can find me for the Holidays 2010!

  1. sounds like you will be busy!

  2. Yes, part of what I do during the holidays. This year I tried to keep everything in San Francisco so there wouldn't be so much traveling. The sale at my studio building, 1890 Bryant, I am the most excited about since I helped organize it. Its also just down the hall from my studio so there's not a whole lot of moving around!
