falling back in

This year was the 40th annual Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, Georgia. For those of you who have never been to or heard of the festival, it is rated by Sunshine Artist as the number 1 art and craft show in the country. This was my 7th year participating in the show, and it was another banner year. There weren't as many shoppers as usual, but i was very fortunate to keep my booth pretty busy throughout the 4 day show. The weather was gorgeous, and as usual, i enjoyed having my booth right next to my folks who were also having a good show -- (check out their website for their online catalog-- canes, hiking, walking and ceremonial sticks all handmade by my dad!)

Here are a couple of shots of the booth this year.... having a lamp lit and some cheerful twinkle lights overhead really has helped to brighten up the inside of the tent. I keep meaning to make or order a sign for the booth, but for some reason can't seem to get around to it. Not that there isn't too much to look at in here already!

These are some of my popular "inspiration tags"; people seemed to gravitate towards these more than ever this year.... i guess many folks need a little extra inspiration right now....

I am always looking for different ways to display all of my jewelry in this busy little booth. The earrings looked fun this year hanging here and there from the tags that i made using a very funny stamp from an etsy seller i buy from sometimes-
