Rockford Start of Summer Show a Success

Hello all! I am fresh off the Rockford, MI craft show and I am sunburned and tired - but still really happy! It was a 3 day show and I was able to get my business cards out to a lot of people. The hand bags and diaper bags that I added to my booth were a big success, and I am anxious to get more together for the Grandville show. I want to give a HUGE thank you to Kelly Bennett, my friend and partner in crime for helping me on Friday and Saturday. If it wasn't for her, my tent would have flew across the Rockford Dam and bows would have littered the streets. Thank you also to Casey Bennett, her brother and Rockford Firefighter for bringing me some cement blocks to weigh my tent down.

I decided to offer face painting on the 2nd day to kids and it went over big time. Every child walking around had my art on the cheeks and I had a line of children all day long. It was fun to do and it was great to hold up the mirror when I was done and see a big smile spread across their faces.

I had a great time, minus the sunburn, and I look forward to coming back next year.
