I mean it. You get cards and wildlife pics this time, grin!
But first, an update. I attended two different fairs, but both were bad choices for me. The Gardner people put me so far away from the center of the fair that not even my neighbors could find me. Had I known more about fairs I would have mouthed off and demanded to be moved, but I didn't know that I could do that.
The second fair was the Bolton Fair, an agricultural fair. I was up against $1 inflatable baseball bats. Not a good choice either, although people stopped and looked and oooh'd and aaaaah'd and I heard nothing but praise over my creations. But people were here for the fun and games, not so much for craft items.
Lessons learned. I scouted out more fairs, this time more specifically craft fairs, and I will be setting up at the Westborough Fall Fest on 5 October on the Common and on October 19 at the Sterling Church Fall Craft Fair. Hopefully some of you will stop by and say hi!
I have been BUSY, lots of animals again this year, but I still found a few minutes here and there to craft and keep my sanity.
This is a straightforward easel card, top and bottom backgrounds are embossed, and the top is matted with one of the new Spellbinders Enhancements dies. The flowers, as always, are my own, the two small leaves are hand colored and shaped.
Then there were the wildlife adventures, and the year was rich with them. I had discovered that we have a local Audubon Sanctuary in town, so I called to get permission to release wildlife on their site since there is not hunting and my wildlife will find everything they need.
My season is by no means over. Round two for squirrels are arriving daily, and this time of year they are often in a very compromised state due to insects homing in on a defenseless orphan immediately.
I hope you enjoyed this long overdue post and hope to read your feedback!
