When is a Crafter like a Groundhog?

By SandraG

In a little less than a week, all of us artisans will be like groundhogs, popping our heads up through layers of yarn, beads, saw dust, fabric shreds, and other crafting leftovers to face the world and share what we have made with the community at our local craft fairs.  We don our nicest and sometimes craziest clothes, set up tables and booths with our goods, and greet each person we meet with a smile.

With every smile, we invite our peers to judge our hard work and creativity...and secretly hope they love something so much that they buy it. I think this may be the hardest part of craft fairs; it's not the digging ourselves out of months of crafting sediment, it's revealing our soul to the world...GULP.   However, we crafters enjoy and love the process and the people, so we become vendors every year and greet the world with fun, creative, and/or useful items.

This year Michelle and I will be vendors at several craft fairs (see our event page for details) with three of the fairs in three consecutive weekends.  We might go crazy by the end of this "Groundhog Season for Crafters."  Does anyone have a couple straitjackets? hahaha

Before we go hilariously insane, Michelle and I will be displaying our unique handmade items featuring high quality jewelry, beautifully crafted home decor, amazing calligraphy cards, fun toys and gifts, and several unique crochet items with patterns made by yours truly. There is even a hint of our geekiness with items featuring Skyrim, Mario, Star Wars, Doctor Who, and more. 

These craft fairs are so much fun and Michelle and I welcome everyone to check out the ones on our event page.  If those are too far away, be sure to check out the local fairs in your area.  We artisans love to see people come to these fairs, talk, and simply enjoy all if our amazing work. Hope to see everyone there.
