...fond FAIR memories...thanks GEORGIA!
...we had an absolutely wonderful show in Stone Mountain
at The Country Living Fair... I really appreciate all of who made it
possible for us to be there...and who made it a success...
Thanks to to Country Living/Hearst Publication and Stella Show Management for the opportunity to present Earth Angels LIVE! in our demo tent on the main green and for the opportunity for me to present an entrepreneurial chat on the Main Stage for those of you starting or trying to grow your handmade business...
Here are a few of my fave images below...
Here's fabulous Sue Parker of Skippy Doodle Designs....I did some major Christmas shopping of my own and many people on my list are receiving her treasures! Also, none of this would be possible without Sue...she drives the truck with me and mans the register..she's my treasured right hand...
Nancy Wiley strutted her stuff, and a fab new batch of painting AND dolls...
total wow! And Nancy gets both the Long Distance & Good Sport Awards...she rode the truck all the way down with us...
it was a treat to have her company and talent with us!
Here's Jody Battaglia....our fave toymaker who has added author to her resume...we are so thrilled to be taking orders on
Jody's new book "Welcome to Fun Town"!
Here's our wonderful Nicole Bowen with her amazing softies...
Nic gets our award for comic relief...every show!
Letty Worley is always at the front of the tent, her warm welcome and can-do attitude keeps us all going! Her talent and style inspire us all!
Dear Jocelyn O'Gorman seems to have avoided the camera again...
