Strawberry Festival-1

Strawberry Festival is over, and I'm still recovering.

This photo is of a small silk painting I gave away in a drawing at my booth. About 40 people entered the drawing. The woman who won was among several who REALLY, REALLY wanted to win it. so I know the names and addresses I collected were of people who really like my work. People who weren't interested in my work did not enter.

We made a profit! That is, if you don't include wages for all the hours we put in. We had fun. We learned a lot! would I do it again? yes. I have inventory left for other fairs, for my esty shop, for other venues, so I won't have to start from scratch for the next one.

As I recover and get my thoughts together, I will share some of what I learned, and some of the juciest moments.
