Waterbury Artisans Boutique recap

This past weekend I showed my work at the Waterbury Artisans Boutique. The size of the venue required me to modify my booth, so things were arranged differently. I think I like my regular booth setup better.

I love Waterbury and their artist community is very strong – I’m thrilled to continue being a part of it. Everyone is so talented and friendly. Not only does Waterbury offer fabulous art, but they also have a very lumpy and sweaty snowman who will allow you to hug him if you ask nicely.

In the evening, the River of Light Lantern Parade made its way past our venue. This parade is truly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. The entire community participates, including children – they make lanterns out of coffee filter paper and willow. This year’s theme was Creatures Under the Sea and the parade will filled with jellyfish, sharks, and fish. They used LED lights to light up the creatures from within.

If you’re ever in the Waterbury area in December, be sure to catch the parade. Hopefully, they will continue the tradition next year!

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
