Everywomans Art and Craft festival was a blast!

It went GREAT! I wanted to post before now but I been super busy these past couple of days, anyhoo...The show was awesome and I got to meet SO many of my street team! I met Ladonna, and Mari, and Sherri, and Juli...it was so GREAT!

I couldnt resist Miss Juli's wares so i had to get something. I am a sucker for jewelry. i cannot resist it. its like chocolate. I cant say no!

She had a great set up at the show, and I got some hair clips for Maylee and the awesome periwinkle necklace featured in the paper we was in YAY! I HAD to have it! I will have pics soon. I cant believe I been so busy! AHHHH! Her jewelry is awesome and I highly recommend her shop Julibee Kitsch I still have a pair of earrings I bought form her eons ago when i first found her on Etsy. They are among my favorites (smile) I will have cute pics of Maylee in the hair clips soon...she keeps pulling them out and saying something that sounds like "Pretty" while she is pulling them out LOL.

Miss LaDonna had a nice set up too. All her beautiful paintings were there...LaDonna is super sweet for inviting me to the show so I want to thank her again for being so kind to me, I had the best time I have had in ages at the show. i met so many great people there! Oh and you should go see LaDonna's shop! She has goddess stuff!

I also met Miss Sherri who makes the incredible artwork for her Maninthemoon Etsy shop. Her work is like WOW!!! I cant believe I got to meet her and she is SOOO super nice too! She just dropped by for a visit she wasnt in the show but she should have been, cause she rocks! Please go check out her art work, this woman in fantastic!

And I got to meet the ever sweet and ultra talented Mari who makes the most awesomely good jewelry for her Whimsybymari Etsy shop. She has a blog too, and I think everyone has to agree she takes the best pictures! LOL Her stuff is VERY treasury worthy so if your a treasury hunter please consider Miss Mari's stuff. The items are gorgeous and the pictures are perfect!

There was also incredible music OMG! The music was just awesome!!! I am not into music much in the past few years but this woman grabbed my soul and took it for a ride! You have to check her out. I prefer local music over big names of course, and her stuff is so true, so honest, and so down to earth...well ya just have to hear it. please go check out Annette Neumann on myspace. There is a song player that has a couple of her songs on it and PLEASE listen. She is so cool in person, and she talked to me for a while and even bought soap! I bought her CD too LOL Its only 1 of 2 CD's I have purchased since 2001 so that tells you something. The other CD was the Villebillies...I like them a lot too! LOL

I had a blast at the show. I sold out of a whole lotta soap, I sold 5 body butters too! YAY! I came home with a lot less stuff than I went with thats for sure. I am hoping to get in on some more shows soon! I am very excited about this whole craft show thing, and I never dreamed it could be profitable for me after my first fiasco at a craft show...cost 35 only made 18...lost a days work,and 17 bucks....thankfully this show did NOT go like that LOLI came out ahead in this one.

We are hoping to do this show again in the spring so if anyone out there reading is in the general area of Radcliff or Lousiville or anywhere kinda close to there and want to see some great arts and crafts and hear some incredible music keep an eye on Everywomansart.org for details on the show hopefully coming in May!

Believe it or not Mari, I have fibromyalgia, and thyroid problems as well as chronic pain due to my arthritis and stuff. That keeps me tired a lot. I used to be SOOO much mroe active and had SOOO much more energy than I do now.I appreciate the compliment and it just reminds me how lucky I am to have what little energy I got in spite of my health issues.
I am still scoping out other shows to do...I am thinking about a couple different ones, and I am trying to build up my stock too. This past show almost wiped me out! YAY!
Thanks Mari I would love to see ya again!
