Winter Wizarding Waltz of 2017

This past weekend, I got to participate in the Winter Wizarding Waltz.  It was put on by Lexpecto Patronum- The Lexington Harry Potter Alliance.  It was Harry Potter themed with attire focused on the 1920's (thanks to Fantastic Beasts).  I enjoyed creating some speciality items for this show including wizard pouches complete with a scroll, quill, and potion bottle.  Between the music and dancing and costumes and food, it truly was a magical evening.

More and More Festivals

I got in late last night from a one day art festival in Columbus, OH.  I'm taking a quick breath before heading to another art show this coming weekend in Louisville, KY.  Each show has its quirks and perks and never ceases to be filled with quality people.  It's those small nuances and meeting new folks and seeing regular customers again that make it fun.  Here is a quick tour from this past month...

Starting in Evanston, IL at the Lakeshore Arts Festival:

This is how I pass time while driving.

View from my booth.  I was excited to be so close to Lake Michigan for the weekend!

Woodland Arts Festival here in Lexington, KY:

I use to go to this arts show when I was little and was enchanted with all the art and artists.  It's really fun to be one of the artists exhibiting now.  I also love that it is in my hometown.  I seriously saw people that I haven't seen in years...including (but not limited to) two of my babysitters from over twenty-five years ago.

Some of my friends who belly danced with Mecca.

Art in Speed Park in Sellersburg, IN:

This is a such a sweet show with high quality artists.  It's nice that it was on the heels of Woodland because it is small enough to give the artists a chance to chat and catch our breath while still "working".  Work is relative anyway, right?  The more I tell myself that I am "playing", the more fun I have "working". 

Upper Arlington in Columbus, OH:

This one day show was on Labor Day, and speculations kept saying to beware of rain and potentially getting washed out.  Somehow, we were by-passed.  It drizzled a bit at one point, but it was overcast and dry.  It was my first time at this show, and I definitely enjoyed it. 

New designs that premiered in Columbus!  More on these later...
