What an awesome weekend!!!

I've have just had the most incredible weekend! I participated in my very first craft fair as The Painted Turtle and it couldn't have been more fun or successful!

My town hosts an annual Art Fair and Balloon Festival every year. It's a wonderful event that has grown even more successful by adding a flea market and craft fair several years ago. I thought this would be a great time to introduce The Painted Turtle to the community.

I had soooo much support from my family and friends throughout this weekend. I couldn't have done it without the help from my great hubby, my friends Melanie and Guyla (and to their husbands who let them get away to help me out) as well as Jeff & Brenda. You guys are the best!

I'd also like to give a big "thank you" shout out to Red Hen Home who did a post in July about what she had learned when doing her first few shows. I kept all her advice in the back of my head while preparing for the show. Thank you so much!!! Your advice was soooo very helpful!

So these are all the projects I've been working on for the past few weeks. Lots of late nights but gosh I love it so much!

Two things I heard over and over this weekend were: 1. "I didn't know you did this." and 2. "Do you have a shop somewhere?" Well, now more people know what I do in my basement workshop. And, I'd love to have a shop someday. Thank you to everyone who gave me so much encouragement.

Now, I'm ready to get some sleep!
