ICYMI: Back to Back Events

All the events I've had leading up to this weekend were the perfect way to prime my system for the back to back events I booked for last weekend- the Glen Ridge Arts & Eco Fair on Saturday and the Montclair Flea on Sunday. And what a weekend! The weather cooperated, though the threat of rain on Saturday afternoon made tear down a bit chaotic and had me worrying that I'd be packing up the rental car with wet gear. A downpour never materialized and the light drizzle didn't disrupt my plans. So grateful! My booth on Saturday at the...

It's a fun demo that I've done before. I brought materials to make mini books including a variety of papers, book cover materials like file folders in different colors, and supplies to decorate them like stickers, colored pencils, markers, and the most popular item, mini paper punches. All these materials came from my Creative Reuse Project stash!  The weather was great, the wind only sent us running after papers...

At Anthropologie I displayed paper heart garlands, delicate decorations made from repurposed papers like vintage sheet music, field guide books, and atlas pages.

ICYMI: Asbury Park Summer Bazaar

I've lived in NJ my entire life but, believe it or not, I've never been to Asbury Park! I jumped at the chance when I saw a social media post reminding applicants that the deadline for the Asbury Park Summer Bazaar was fast approaching. I was excited to be accepted, it was a fantastic last minute addition to my summer schedule!  This event is held indoors at the Convention Hall which turned out to be great protection from the rain that day. It also gave me more flexibility with my display. Since I didn't have to contend with the wind...

ICYMI: Le Petit Night Market

The first Night Market on Glenridge Ave. was a festive and fun-filled event! I vended alongside familiar friends and networked with other local business people and artists, finding inspiration in our conversations, and renewed energy for on-going projects. Here are some photos from the sunny start to the full moon ending, live music and laughter all around.
