Acworth Arts Festival

Wow, I just realized that it has been a week since I participated at the Acworth Arts Festival. I think it took me a week to recover :) It was a lot of fun but it was a lot of work too. We had a great crowd on Saturday and I thank each and everyone of y'all who came out and took a piece of joyajewelry home with you. Sunday, well let's just say it was really great that I had my pal jenni next to me, a wine bar behind my booth supplying us with a bit a vino through out the day, and great weather because it was slow, slow, slow. It really baffled us all but that is the way festivals are sometimes. But no worries, if I have one satisfied and elated customer that truly loves my stuff it makes me happy. I did a custom piece for a gal on Saturday and she came by Sunday to tell me about all the compliments she got that night when she went out with friends. To see her face light up with jewelry love made my weekend and it reminds me why it is I do what I do. Though with that said I may be taking a bit of a break from Festivals. I will always do my local Shakerag Fest but trying to juggle family aka a 2 year old and doing festivals is really a challenge. I need to give etsy more love, be in more stores, and do some more home parties like I used to. We shall see, but thanks to you all for coming on this journey with me it means the world to me. xoxo

Balance and a Birthday Party

I apologize for my blogging absence but I have a really good excuse :) Last month was crraaazzy!!! Wren turned two so of course I was one crazy momma planning his birthday party. And at the same time, I have been frantically getting ready for the Acworth Festival. Balance was the word for the month of March I tell ya.
We threw Wren an airplane themed birthday. We are so very fortunate that my dad is a member of the Commemorative Air Force/Dixie Wing so we were able to set up right there at the airport. It was so fantastic and memorable. And the kiddos had a great time looking at all the W.W. II aircraft. I am still in aww that he is two. He changes everyday and takes my breath away always.
When I wasn't planning a birthday I was trying to make as much jewelry as possible. I am so very excited to be apart of this  festival. I haven't done one in a while and I just can't wait to set up my displays, show off my newest pieces, and meet/greet all the vendors and customers! I look forward to the chitter chatter of everyone setting up their booths in the morning. A whirlwind of fun and a lot of work but I love it! Plus I am so excited that I am next to my super talented friend Jenni Horne. Wish me luck and I will post some festival pics in a couple of weeks but in the mean time, here are some party photos and new jewelry that will be at the show.

What a fun day!

yay! I blew out my candles and made a big fat wish!! smooches little boy!

I am so excited to about these new pieces!! Love them!
