fall octofair success!

our am set up. notice k’s friendly greeting?

welp, it was another beautiful fall day.  isn’t it nice when the weather is still warm enough to take a stroll without cocooning oneself within layer upon layer of sweaters, flannel, scarves, and gloves?  i, for one, am soaking up every last warm fall day before it’s too late.

incidentally, today was the perfect weather for the octopus and the fox’s  fall octofair.  we had our very own table set-up this time around, and it was nice to sell some of our handmade stuff to a bunch of lovely people.  k got some new drawings done, and i made headway into a new scarf i’ve been knitting.

by the time the octofair ended, the sun was warming our backs, and that incredibly wonderful sound of leaves crunching beneath our feet greeted us as we packed up our belongings.

after today we will be preparing for our next big thing, the annual asunm craft fair, set for november 28th-30th at the unm student union building.  we just got some new shirts in, just itching to be printed with new bobbi marbles designs, and we’re really excited to show them to you all!  as always, please check out our etsy store, and follow us on instagram, at bobbimarbles.

but right now.  it’s time for some pumpkin spiced chai and a mini “wilfred” marathon.


lovely october.

new (old) design ideas!

so do you know what?  october is one of my favorite months.  in fact, it just might be my favorite month.  it starts with k’s birthday, ends with halloween, and in-between there is the changing of weather, leaves, and pace.  it should come as no shock that k and i are kind of…low key.  that’s a good way to put “slacker-ish” and “calm” into one word, nuh?  i’m not even going to try and apologize for the lack of posts here at bobbimarbles.com, because i seem to start every post with an apology.  let’s just accept that i tend to get writer’s block for oh, say, several months, and that i pledge to try harder to put in some more content on this site.

k and i have discussed having a “share” post, maybe once a month, maybe more.  it would be a time when we would share something that we like; something that we’ve been into lately (music, art, movies, etc.), so we can give you all a glimpse into a bit of our bobbi marbles inspiration.  we would also like to start highlighting other artists and brands that we like, as well.  some will be friends.  some will be artists we’ve never met, but that we admire.  just a place where we can share what we love.  so stay tuned for those posts.

october is coming to a close, but it has been an amazing month.  however, we are definitely looking forward to november.  there are two craft fairs coming up that we’ve been preparing for (that will be another post), and of course the holidays are almost here, which is exciting! (um, by the way, how many pumpkin spiced lattes have you all had so far?  because i’ve lost count of how many i’ve had…)
