After I rested up from the three weeks of working outside my home office and after recovering from the trauma/drama of my son's travel experience to Germany Friday/Saturday, I can say I had a really great weekend.
First, I helped with the first indie craft fair I've ever been to. A local gal decided to arrange a craft fair like a Renegade fair. Debi isn't a crafter; she just wanted a local one to happen. She did such a fantastic job and dubbed our fair as Crafty Feast. I read about it a couple of months ago on Small Object, wrote to Debi, and asked if I could help out. i didn't want to have a table but just see the kinds of artists who would come and meet etsy vendors. Camille and I did some running and set-up work for her and then just enjoyed the day. The weather was perfect, and the vendors were wonderful. I especially wanted to meet etsy vendors, and I sure did. I'm surprised at how many live near me, including the DIL of my long-time friends. Kate has two cute little ones and knits fun hats at Tot Toppers.
I met Sarah of Small Object, and she was so nice to chat with us and let me go on about blogging and what things I've learned. We took a photo, but I don't look that marvelous in it - Camille and Sarah do, so, unless Camille photo-chops it and chops me out, I don't have the fortitude to post the picture!
There was a local vendor who sells screenprinted tees at Fox and Grapes. Really great quality tees and designs, and I bought one for Camille.
After the fair, I was just exhausted and pretty punchy, so I napped all afternoon and then sewed through the evening. I made this pretty purse and pouch for my shop as well as worked on other things. I was nice and relaxed, and it's another Harry Potter Weekend on the Family Channel, so that was on in the background. My kids and I can never get over the fact that I'm a 40+ lover of HP and can't get enough of it. Isn't that weird? It's the same with "You've Got Mail" and "When Harry Met Sally," etc. I never get bored with those.
So, it's HP4 tonight. It starts in a few minutes, and I've got one more etsy showcase to get ready for. I'm off to the studio for the evening to keep on sewing and do a little laundry while I'm there.
