People's Art Festival at the Russel Industrial Center (www.ricdetroit.org) was a great event. I met tons of great people, artists and attendees. The creativity in Detroit always amazes me, thanks to the organizers! I did a trade with For The Foxes (www.forthefoxes.etsy.com) and love her jewelry.

Michigan's landscape is as diverse as the people and culture and that is why I love it so! Within a weeks time, I will have camped in the wilderness of the Upper Peninsula and participated in an awesome festival in downtown Detroit. I dig it. The People's Art Festival at the Russel Industrial Center is this weekend- Sat Aug 28 and Sun Aug 29. There will be lots to see- live music, fine art and crafts, and surely good people watching too. peoplesartfestival.com for details. The weather is supposed to be lovely so hope to see you there!

Maker Faire was amazing! After much anticipation, the weekend was a blast filled with innovation, awesome arts and crafts, and happy campers. Detroit brought it with the first ever Maker Faire, 20,000+ people came. One of the Craft Faire highlights was Leo, Detroit GT's crafty bus. Bethany Nixon, Lish Dorset, and myself hopped in for a picture. Thanks to the Henry Ford, Handmade Detroit, and all the awesome sponsors for this unique and fun event. www.makerfaire.com.
