Weston Craft Show

This past weekend I sold my work at the 30th Annual Weston Craft Show. Weston is a peanut of a place – completely adorable.

Since Weston is two hours away from home, I chose to stay overnight. Several of the other exhibitors and I stayed in a house owned by the Playhouse. It was fun to hang out and get to know some other artists a bit better.

The Playhouse has a lot of odd spaces. I was located in a room that I understand to be a bedroom for resident actors during the summer months. Due to the size of the room, half of my work was located in the hallway. It took a while for me to figure out to set everything up, but I was happy with how it turned out.

Waterbury Artisan Holiday Boutique

This past weekend I sold my work at the Waterbury Holiday Artisan Boutique. I had less space than I usually do, so there was some booth hacking going on.

It was a little squished in there.

Luckily, I had an additional spot directly across the aisle from my booth – it gave me extra display space.

I love Waterbury – it has the most wonderful sense of community. The folks who came to shop at the show didn’t just know the artists, they were their neighbors. Being at that show is like selling your work in a hug.

And if that wasn’t awesome enough, where else can you buy fine craft and hang out with marathon Santas?

Women’s Festival of Crafts

Blue Roof Designs craft show boothThis past weekend was my first time exhibiting at the super-awesome Women’s Festival of Crafts. I’m sure you’ve guessed that I enjoyed my time there. 🙂

My booth was on the third floor of Burlington City Hall, all the way down at the end of the hall (about as far as you could get from the entry to the building). I was worried that no one would find me up there, but luckily I was wrong.

I loved the black and white checkered floor, so I didn’t bother rolling out my carpet. It just makes me think of a cool retro bathroom floor (that’s a good thing).

I was repeatedly told that I had the best lit booth at the show – that my booth was like a beacon at the end of the hallway (or a light bulb to a moth?).

I debuted my new line of photo albums at this show – Off Leash. I never would have come up with the idea had I not gotten a dog.

Now Wiggum rules my world, which includes the studio.
