Get thee over to Art Fest tomorrow (Sunday, noon-6pm) if you have a chance. I was able to walk around a few times and there are some awesome artisans-the collections are so unique and varied. I even bought a fabric necklace made from upcycled textiles from another artist because I don't sew and well, it was uber-cool. I am up in the Mezzanine by Dewey's Pizza and adjacent to Bar Louie. There's a bench right across from me where all the husbands waited while their wives tried on my jewelry, so that worked out nicely.
I love showing and explaining the pieces I make to others and I had my sweet friend Jessica to help, but whew, it gets tiring after 11 hours. And to think that I did this every Saturday (13 hr. open/close) and Sunday and in the evenings in a fine jewelry store during college...in 3 inch heels... and still went out afterwards. Ugh, what 20 years later does to you.
Stop by and say hello and take a look-see around the entire venue for gift ideas because Mother's Day is NEXT WEEK!
