last weekend i went down to portland for the 4th annual picnic music and arts festival. i love doing this show. i think everyone was a little worried that hurricane irene was going to come calling in the middle of it, but she very nicely held off for a bit. (more on that in a minute.)
i was silly and only took one iphone photo all day. of only a part of my booth. bad blogger. but the day really seemed to go by pretty much in a flash. thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth i shared with my good pal aprill of lulubeans - i know i speak for both of us when i say thanks for supporting our art and craft, saying hello, and buying handmade. i think this was my favorite year of vendors - it seemed like the quality of craftsmanship and items were truly excellent this year. i was trying to be super careful not to spend too much money, but believe me, i could have dropped a bundle. my kids both spent a decent chunk of their hardearned allowance though. they pretty much live for picnic each year. it was also nice to see mimi kirschner - one of my favorite artists - in person. she was in maine for the day and stopped by picnic for fun. love her work. and she took some great photos of the day if you're interested.
i wanted to share a recently completed commissioned papercut - this was started in the beginning of the summer and finally wrapped up earlier this month. i only got a few iphone photos of it, but i'm glad i took them.
as for irene - we were braced for a pretty bad storm here in maine, but it was not nearly as messy as predicted. we loved watching the wind whip the ocean on sunday night. for my friends south of here and especially in vermont, i am so sorry for the losses you have suffered.
ps: we're moving in two weeks. can't come soon enough. pictures soon!
