Thanks to everyone who visited me at the Apple Festival in Ithaca a few weeks ago! It was a soggy, rainy morning on Saturday, but that didn't seem to stop all of you with those super cute rain boots and jackets! Even though I'm a proper introvert and usually have to psych myself up to be in biz-lady-don't-be-so-awkward-social mode, it's quite fun to meet new people at fairs like this. And on top of that, I get to people watch and take note of cute outfits and boots and dresses and jackets and all that goodness. I should make a little sign for my booth that says "please buy my stuff so i can buy cute clothes like you."
I tried out some new products at this fair, including screen printed tote bags and temporary tattoos. I still like paper goods the most, but it's fun seeing my designs on other types of materials.
Sunday had great weather and we enjoyed a bit of sunshine finally. It was chilly both days though, so of course the solution I found was drinking a constant supply of hot mulled cider.
Joby helped me make some new display items recently, like the two boxes above with chalkboard paint on the front. They really helped organize the cards and it was useful being able to point people with specific holiday requests to the right box.
