Thanks For Joining Us In Duluth!

We had such a good time this weekend at the Duluth Fall Festival.  So much prep work goes into each show an artist participates in that we are often exhausted by the time the show actually begins.  I get a renewed sense of energy from meeting the people who make my work come alive and […]

Finding Our Wings

At my first arts and crafts festival nine years ago, I was still learning about the logistics of working a show.  I was under-prepared […]
