Workshops through Shoreline Community College Adult Ed!

Create your own personal scent!

I’m so excited to be teaching two Workshops this Holiday Season!

All supplies provided. Note that this course is not for students who are sensitive to fragrances.

Let’s Make Gifts!

Nothing beats a hand-crafted gift! In this workshop you’ll make rolled paper beads, then craft them into a pair of earrings. Create exotic bath tub teas using essential oils and botanicals, create a super cute pinecone owl and a sweet felt ornament for your favorite camper! You’ll leave this workshop with four handmade gifts created especially by you – perfect for giving! You will also go home with patterns and instructions for making more at home. All supplies provided. For adults and youth age 15+ (will accept students age 12-14 accompanied by an adult). 

Date: 12/3/2022 (SAT) Times: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM ** Correct Room # is 9208 in Building 9000 **

Artist Attic Sale this Sat., Sept. 24th, 10 – 3

Fairview Church and School, 844 78th Street, Seattle

Brought to you by the Northwest Art Alliance (sponsors of the Best of the Northwest Art and Fine Craft Shows) this one day event is designed to help artists clear out their studios of seconds, older designs, extra materials, supplies from projects no longer pursued. Some artists bring new work, too, so you never know what finds you may happen upon!

We will have both new work and “last call” items, as well as stocking stuffers, gift books and more! Come enjoy this fun, FREE event!

As an added bonus, there is a coffee and bake sale table – yum!!!

Drawing for Beginners Class

I’m so excited to be returning to my roots this summer!

I will be teaching an introductory drawing class beginning Weds. July 27th, through Shoreline Community College Continuing Education. I would love to have any of you join in this class, which will teach you to really look and see what you are about to draw. No previous experience required, just a desire to explore a talent you may have thought you didn’t have! More info!

Father’s Day is Sun. June 19!

Shop Now

It seems early this year, and in Seattle it’s been feeling more like Fall than Spring, much less like Summer!

Nevertheless, Sunday June 19th is the day set aside to honor our Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles and other male mentors. It’s the perfect day to express love, admiration and thanks for all they have contributed to our lives.

Brick & Mortar is Closing

I have an announcement that is very bittersweet for me: after 34 years, Crackerjack will close its doors at the end of January. It has been a lifetime of great relationships for me, with customers, employees and artists, fellow business owners, as well as sales reps and Wallingford neighbors. In fact, some of my good personal friends are people I’ve met through the business!

  I opened Crackerjack in 1986 for two fundamental reasons: I had an art background, and saw a need for the handcrafted to be available in the marketplace every day; and I wanted to have a family I could raise with minimal outside childcare, have the time flexibility to go on field trips, be the room mother, etc. And Crackerjack has successfully provided both!

Now I am ready for a new chapter, so have decided to retire from retail store ownership. There are many other things I’d like to pursue, so who knows what you’ll hear from me in future? In the short term, please stop by to say “goodbye” “au revoir” “zegnaj” and “sayonara”, and help us clear our shelves!


Come Friday evening January 10th from 4 to 8 for a Sale Preview and to join us in a toast for the future!

Preview Party Friday Nov. 8th, 5 to 8pm

Join us as we celebrate the opening of our Annual Trunk Show featuring Kristin Ford Jewelry, Annie de Vuono hats and Paige Selden Scarves.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
