So here I am with Eleni at the Arts Market this past Saturday. I was so glad to have my friend helping me at the festival. Once we got everything set up we were good to go. So what do you think of my sign? I made it with an old shutter and recycled piece of wood. It got a bit scratched up in the back of my truck on the trip over.
Look who came, Adriana Whitney! OK, she is a sweetheart. I could have talked with her all afternoon about art, kids, moving, oh...we covered quite a bit in the short amount of time we chatted. Her blog is here Adri's Art and her Etsy shop is here Adri's Etsy
How lucky am I that she lives in Houston? I think I've made a new friend...YAY!
Here is Amie Needham from A Punkin Card Company and Erin Bordenave from Knotty By Nature. Names sound familiar? They have Etsy shops and both ladies have wonderful, wonderful items. Again, live in Houston! Lucky me!!
When the wind blew I was happy not only because it cooled me off but I could smell Cammie's Handmade Soaps. The smell was just outstanding! I had to go tell her I was in love.
Paule Sheya Hewlett of Beyond Her has the most fabulous items and I am completely in love with them. She had amazing scarfs that were so soft and comfy. I went to get one and they were all gone...next time get it when ya see it!
Here is Rachael Adamiak letting me take a quick shot of her. Her booth looked amazing as well as her jewelry. Check it out here Rachael Adamiak Jewelry
Here is Cindy Babbitt. I caught her in the act! I really enjoyed her work because it was so unique and functional. Here is a link to see more of her pottery: Cindy's Creations
*Little side note: she has the best business cards EVER!
Michael was super to let me take his picture in his busy booth. I fell in love with the tables and mirrors he creates. They are totally superb!
Last but not least Sharon Tevault from Lucky Sustainable Designs. I was so "lucky" to have the booth next to her! She had Eleni and I laughing the entire festival. Not only was she a great neighbor, comedian and advice giver, she has the most AMAZING items. She uses reclaimed, salvaged, and sustainably-harvested wood for all her items which I love. I can't begin to tell you how awe-inspiring her work is and pictures just don't do it justice. Eleni and I couldn't stop touching her items all day. She was one of the best parts of the show...love ya Sharon!
