Well Hello there!

Is it really mid September?  I just can't believe it.  I'm just going to start writing here as if my last post wasn't over 2 months ago!

My Booth!

 I did my first ever art fair this weekend, the Driftless Area Art Festival, which was only 15 minutes from home.  I've been fretting about this all summer, but I felt when it finally did arrive that I was well prepared and this helped settle my nerves a bit. We had the most beautiful weekend and I  couldn't have asked for better weather.


I'm happy to say that I exceeded my expectations.  I was a ball of nerves most of the time, but so very happy that I did it.  The people were wonderful.  I didn't hear a single negative comment, which I was so afraid I would hear.  I received so much positive feedback that it really helped give my confidence a much needed boost.  So much of my support came from people that I know.  This community that I live in prides itself in supporting its locals, whether it's the farmers, restaurants, stores/shops, or its artists.  This weekend they really proved this.

I wish I had more pictures to share, but I was too darn nervous and couldn't concentrate on getting any good pictures.  I tried to sell a variety of things from magnets, note pads that I made out of misprints, note cards, various sizes of prints with or without mats and some framed originals.  Maybe I'll take a few pics of my magnets, notepads and  note cards and share them in another post.  They all seemed to go over very well.

A great big thank you to everyone!  I really do appreciate it and all the kind words.  I had such a wonderful experience and am looking forward to my next one.  (I'm not sure when that will be, but there will be more!
