Mid-May was a whirlwind of pop up fairs. On May 9 I returned to the Ravenswood Covenant Church for their second annual Mother’s Day Gift Market and had a lovely time.
This time I remembered to bring my own table!
I had fun accommodating all the new stakes I had been making, and my bees got a positive response.
It was fun to watch the children make Mother’s Day cards for their moms, and some adults joined in too. I saw some beautiful cards walk away.
In the “I love you because” Photo Booth kids described why they love mom that was written on a whiteboard and then they posed with it.
It was an exercise in gratitude as I saw “You give the best hugs,” “she blows me kisses,”we go for cookies” and “I enjoy playing with you”. The board disappeared by the time I could have a snapshot taken, but I sent this pic to mom nonetheless.
My Arbonne neighbor Heather couldn’t decide what plant stake to choose for her orchid at home, so I let her top 3 sit in her booth as she pondered.
I re-visited with makers I had met before and enjoyed meeting new creators at this event.
I admire the creativity of ceramics, jewelry, bath bombs, accessories and printed wares.
The sweetness of Amy’s dark chocolate sea salt caramels gave me the sugar boost I needed to make it to 8 pm.
We had wonderful foot traffic in spite of a rain storm and several dads picked up angels for their leading ladies. I enjoyed watching children choose with their fathers.
Soon it was time to pack up, and I was happy to have sent of my creations with families.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. I guess I should think about Father’s Day gifts, but aside from keychains I’m not sure what to make that is guy-oriented. Although garden stakes are unisex, I suppose.
