dear Market Day ...

Dear Market Day: Well, here's to the end of another wonderful craft season. It's been fun. This year brought a location change or two, a new P.A. system and Scott Rocketship spinning vinyl. We ate DarbyCakes and White Boy Burritos. We supported each other, learned from each other and helped each other grow. My craft fair experience here in Des Moines gave me the courage to knit for Renegade this year, something I never thought I could do. Market Day provided a way for a nerdy mom who knits to make a little extra cash while sitting on the couch in her pajamas, watching Netflix movies late at night. (Really late at night.) 

Thanks to this experience, I have met and had the chance to spend time with so many talented friends. Like Erin, Leslie, Sarah, Amanda, Danelle, Daphne, Lara, Dani, Scott and Cat. Handmade is fun. But the people might be the very best part. (Definitely the very best part.) So, Market Day, thanks for everything. And see you next spring.

  1. I LOVE the pics. Your cowls look so lovely all brightly colored and cozy. And you really couldn't be more cute. Thanks for sharing the scene, for I have yet to make it down to one of these. Tried this year, and ran out of time. My sister was there tho. Somehow I feel that counts. :)

  2. Aww..honored to be on your list and glad to count you as a friend too. A super talented one at that!

    I had more fun than I ever imagined I would at the Market Day events I did. Not only being around fantastic people, but not having the stress of being the person in charge!
