The Handmade Detroit Craft Fair was this weekend and it was a blast. My photos are blurry...I know. I was lone woman (Cree had too much homework), so I stayed pretty glued to my table and didn't take the time to take any nice photos! I'm irritated at myself now. I'm even more upset, because I made 6 refurbished journals out of vintage books and sold all but two and guess who forgot to photograph those? Me. I'm heart sick about it. They were beautiful. It made me a little sad to sell them...especially the vintage book about trees. I'm sure I'll find more books to use soon that I love just as much. I'll have to remember to take photos next time.
The Michigan print was most definitely a favorite of the day. We sold more than we ever have, I know that's not saying much since I'm new at this, but I still find it satisfying. I was set up by International Robot. Dylan and Helen were super nice and they are from Ann Arbor! Yay! I also bought a print by Nicole Ray. I can't wait to frame it. I was bummed that I couldn't participate in the Sunday festivities, but I know it was good that I tended to my church responsibilities.
All in all, a good day. Now I feel like I can focus on Christmas. We get our tree tonight! Woohoo! It's also snowing again today. Perfect! I'm also a bit behind on that Christmas card I promised...I need to get on that.
