Hello, and extra big hello and welcome to anyone visiting for the first time, after meeting me yesterday at Ithaca’s first (ever?) Gnome and Fairy Fest!
It was my first time vending at a festival, and my first official day open for business (I’ve been taking commissions for a while, but not frequently, and I’ve never had prints of my personal work available before – so, this was very exciting!). I’m very grateful to have been part of such an important Faerie event, and I feel blessed to have been asked to come.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by – I hope my work resonates with you, and that you look forward to what I have coming! I will be focusing my energies on getting my Etsy shop up (yes, that IS coming) this week. So if you didn’t have a chance to stop by, you’ll still get a chance to check out what I had to offer there.
Also sending love to the other vendors and participants – I didn’t get to see as much of the rest of the festival as I wish I had, but what I did see was lovely, and I hope everyone had an amazing time! And thanks again to all my family and friends that stopped by and/or helped us set up. I am blown away by the support.
An extra shout-out to Amuse, and Kristina there, as they seemed to be the masterminds behind the event (though all of Press Bay Alley was involved and amazing , please check them out if you’re ever in Ithaca!).Also to my incredible wife, who I could not have done this without, and my mother, who stayed with us all day and was instrumental in making the Coloring Page station run smoothly. And huge gratitude to the fae themselves, who held off the rain until the moment we were done packing! (Is that magic or what?)
Can’t wait to see what comes next, and to be there again next year. May this become an Ithaca tradition ❤
