Just a pic of two little friends that found homes at the Cumberland fair. I am busy filling an order for my new favorite store - Seaside Creations, right here in Harpswell. She started selling my softies the middle of July and has sold almost 30 of them. I am amazed! Love it! She has asked for 12 more and between sewing them and completing an order for one of my favorite little Junior Girl Timers - I have been busy. Little nervous about the fair on the 4th of September. I am also a little happy....it feels so great that people like what I create. Anyone that is heading out my way should head to Bailey Island and visit Seaside Creations. She is open Thurs. - Sunday and has the greatest mix of arts and crafts to sell.
While I am sharing some of my happy feelings ....another great thing that happened to me at the Cumberland fair was meeting a family that does not live locally, but came to the fair in hopes to buy another of my softies. The Grammy had bought her Granddaughter one of my elephants and she loved it so much that she wanted another. She came with her mom and Grammy and had her elephant "Ellie" that she loved so much. I was so happy to see that she loved her Ellie - and that Ellie still looked so good. I took a photo...but I can't seem to find my iPhone - anyone seen it?

Thinking about our display for craft fairs and wanting to try something new. Leslie and I just participated in the Cumberland Craft Fair and it was amazing. I have never been apart of something so big and with so many vendors or shoppers. We had a wonderful time. We met so many amazing people. From Todd, our neighbor, to Lisa from down the way, we were blessed with many new friendships, advice and an amazing sense of something greater then we had known before. Selling so much product, translated into three sleepless nights. Worth it....but oh so sleepy still. We got a lot of ideas about our display, but am not sure when they will happen.
Thanks friends for stopping in.
