Lovely Lineup = FAB FAIR!


We are just back from The Country Living Fair in Columbus...once again it was an event we will long remember. It was amazing, exhausting, uplifting, tiring, elating, inspiring and more... thanks to the lineup of talented Art Girls who laughed and bonded their way through 3 days, 35,000 customers, and sweltering 95 degree heat followed by a frigid 50 degree morning... It was not easy but it was utterly FABULOUS!

The pics tell a thousand tales...here's post one on the line-up...I will post on our tent and the art and artists that filled it with energy and joy soon...stay tuned!

AND HERE THEY ARE!!

Valerie Weberpal of Harvest Moon struts with her soft sculpture creations...

Here's altered art designer and poet Cheryl Kuhn with her works...

Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction joined us to promote her new book...(Stay tuned for more info on that!)

Jody Battaglia strolling with her wonderful heirloom toys...

Painter Jennifer Lanne jumping for joy and with oodles of style too...

Here's designer Krys Kirkpatrick of Bunnies by the Bay and Hutch Studio fame with her new watercolors...she gets the "most adventurous" award attending the Fair on just a few days notice...

Laurie Meseroll waltzes with one of her mixed-media Mud-Cakes...

Here's Leslie McCabe Textile Artist with one of her exceptionally wrought hooked pillows...

Sauntering Letty Worley creator of Letty's Bears with one of her heirloom teddy purses...

Here's Earth Angels newcomer Melody Doyel of Melody Elizabeth Designs sporting her re purposed textile accessories...

This is my big sister Roseanna Mihalick, Textile Expert and Fair Presenter -- we celebrated her 59th Birthday at the event too...

A BIG thanks to all who made it possible...the folks at Country Living, the folks at Stella Show Management, the wonderful customers who come each year to see us, and of course the artist themselves along with my Earth Angels staff Michelle and Sue...

NOW there are 3 weeks to recover and we are onto Atlanta for the FIRST EVER Country Living Fair SOUTH...Details on the SHOW SITE


I sure do hope you can make it out to Stone Mountain near Atlanta on 10/22-24 to catch the Art Girls' RoadShow...this is my mode of transport at the events...silly me


ciao for now
xxoo Jen
