Summer Solstice

Domestica in Des Moines

Homespun in Indianapolis

Inkling in Chicago

Happy Summer Solstice and cheers to the longest day of the year! I can't believe it is officially summer. In Indiana we say the corn will be "knee high by the fourth of July". I hope the corn grows a little slower this year to prolong summer! We finally planted our garden last week, a little late this year. We planted green tower and leaf lettuce, green peppers, banana peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, 5 kinds of tomatoes, jalapenos, and lots o beans. Today I am shipping out consignment orders to some rad shops. Check them out if you live in the respective cities.
Happy summer!

Show Wrap Up!

Sweet Booth at Renegade Austin

Constructor Craft Fair
The spring shows I was fortunate to be a part of have been a blast! Renegade Austin was awesome, I visited some friends and made my first trip to Texas, yee haw! Lots of delicious food, live music, and friendly Texans. I think I could live there! The Constructor Craft fair was amazing, loved the venue and the gals who put on the show know how to throw an awesome event. The Indie-ana Handi-craft Exchange was a delight, as always. I love going to my home state for their events and can't wait to see the new store, Homespun. Check it out, www.homespunindy.com. All in all, I love what I do and one of my favorite parts of the handmade shows is meeting people and talking with customers and other crafters face to face. Thanks to everyone who attended and for the support!
