Just Playing...

Summer was great and as fall is swiftly approaching I find myself just wanting to find a corner in the sun and sleep away the least one afternoon before the days get cold again.

I did the market in the park this summer and it's been an interesting thing for me.  What I can say is that it's totally different to sell in person than it is to sell online.  Without my secret weapons, I would have never have been able to do it.  First, many thanks to Jeff...he can take the ideas in my head and make them work and having there when it's time to tear down makes it all so much easier for me.  Then I have my Mom...she helps in so many ways.  From pricing, to cashier, to customer service, to promoter, to banker...she does all the things that allow me to stay in "creative" mode.  And you can't deny the touches of my youngest niece...she helps design displays, and she has the eye for how things should be arranged within the space.  We've had good sales, but I have to admit that I would do it just to have the moments with family...

This is a custom bracelet I was asked to make to match one of the copper necklaces I've loved making...I think it turned out well.

And now to go find that warm place in the sun and relax for just a little while...
