Clockwise from top left: green ombre bag by Freshly Picked (can't wait to pack mine full of summer necessities,) amazing dolls by Annily Green (the detailing - cuffed jeans with back pockets!)(photo from Freshly Picked*,) headband by Wendy and Peter, patent leather wallet by Annily Green, moccassins by Freshly Picked (my Cherokee roots are begging for a baby to put those on!) houndstooth earrings by Made by Jewls (so nice to meet you, Julianne!) Rope Necklace by Jos B. Designs, vintage school lunch trays by Blue Door (my man was so excited when I came home with a set of these.) hand painted butter dishes by Vintage Oddity (love the one with blue and gray triangles! photo from Ardor*.)
My momentary reappearance and subsequent disappearance can in part be attributed to the Bijou Market that I just finished up with this weekend. In the midst of three busy weeks at the daily job, packing, moving and trying to find things (not yet to the unpacking stage) I also made several new things for the show, had them covered in an inch of insulation (had I only known how messy that can be, I would have moved all my stuff before the installers came) and had to find time to dust them all off before trekking it down to Provo for the market.
I love selling at shows, it's so worth it to be spending time with other artisans and seeing all the people shopping who appreciate and enjoy something that you made. It's also nice to hear some critiques and compliments from fellow artisans and to be impressed by other people's creativity. Bijou was so well organized and lovely things were everywhere! A special thanks to Rashelle, Nicole and Emily for putting it on and to all the wonderful people that came by to shop! I'm looking forward to Dutch Days in two weeks and Beehive Bazaar two weeks after that, there will be no end to making things for quite awhile! Check back for peeks of some new stuff from me...just as soon as I finish clearing the dust and insulation from the photo area.
*two highly important things I must not forget next time: my business cards and my camera.
