Hang Ten

I had a good time at the craft fair in Southwest Harbor this weekend. It was a hot weekend. One thing I enjoy about craft fairs on Mount Desert Island is when past customers stop by the craft fairs. They tell me how much they love the pieces they bought from me. This weekend I

Camp Christmas in July

I love Christmas and I love Christmas in July. If Candance Cameron Bure is the Queen of Christmas, then the Founders of Christmas is Not Canceled Jen Lilley and her friend Ale are the Queens of Christmas in July. Jen Lilly brought with her the Charity she runs with best friend Ale to GAC Family

Flamingo Festival 2022

This past weekend was Flamingo Festival in Southwest Harbor sponsored by Harbor House. Flamingo Festival is a weekend like no other with a full parade that’s truly over the top in a way that only small towns can pull off. It makes me feel like I walked onto the set of a Hallmark Channel Rom-Com.

Oh Honey

Sunday June 19th my craft fair was cancelled due to rain. I found myself sleeping in and scrolling on Facebook like most people on lazy rainy Sunday mornings.

the 4th Bar Harbor Style

So, this was my first year actually attending the 4th of July Craft Fair in Bar Harbor Maine on Mount Desert Island.

Fogtown Brewing

This weekend was a beautiful weekend in Downeast Maine. I had a craft Fair at Artsworth & Atlantic Glass Studio in Ellsworth. When it’s the last weekend in June and the temperatures in Downeast Maine are already mid 80s you know this summer is going to be a hot one. This market is a half

Mmm Bacon

Charcuterie is more than cheese and crackers. One of my favorite customer photos came to me a few days after Christmas 2021 from a client that’s also a good friend. A breakfast Charcuterie board she made over the holidays. I mean YUM yum BACON BACON BACON!!! I feel my mouth drool just looking at the

After the Rain comes a RAINBOW

So, another weekend in the summer means only one thing as an artist, another craft fair. This time Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island. The weather report was iffy for Saturday and mentioned light rain during set up, but it would turn into a nice day. Sunday looked like downpour rain the whole day. Saturday
