On Saturday, my best friend and I had a small art and craft show. It ended up being quite delightful! I'd never sold any of my items in person, keeping mostly to my etsy shop and such, so it felt like a bit of a brave moment. And Marianne had never sold any of her paintings, so it was a first for her, as well. We invited a small group of family and friends to stop by for a delicious lunch, a cool beverage and some crafty goodness!
My business cards feature photos I've taken of my crafts as well as a few different logos I came up with. I love the MiniCards from Moo! So tiny and adorable beyond all reason!
Some ruffle cardigan pins - all in a row! (I made sure to add one to my outfit, too.)
Marianne's watercolor paintings leave me in awe. She is insanely talented. It's even more impressive to me because I took a watercolor class in college and it made me want to kill myself. (Dramatic much? I know.) The fact that she can look at a photo and turn it into an absolutely beautiful watercolor painting is the most impressive thing. She's incredibly talented - and I'm so happy I was able to be there for her first sale!
She also had some acrylic paintings available for sale. I desperately wanted to buy the koi fish one, but someone beat me to it...
I'm so incredibly proud of Marianne for taking the next step with her art! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when people make the decision to share their creativity with more than just themselves.
All things considered, it was a lovely afternoon! Complete with crafts, happiness and a few plastic cups of delicious sangria (as shown above). Thank you to everyone who took time out of their weekend to stop by our tiny craft show. It really meant the world to both Marianne and I.
Oh, and if you want to take a peek at my etsy shop, some of the items have made their way over there. I'm also having a June sale with discounts on some of my favorite items:
