Do you ever look at the clock at one point in the day and then look at it again only to see that hours have slipped by and you don't remember much of it. I'm not sure whether it's a sign of getting older or if it's the result of having a really good time...either way...life sure does seem to be slipping by quickly these days.
This past weekend was what can only be described as awesome!
After months and months of anticipation this weekend was the Spruce Bog (the Yukon's largest Christmas craft fair) and Birds in a Wire participated in it by selling prints of my photos, art, cards and postcards.
It was a high energy day where I got to meet and greet with a steady stream of people coming by our table (some were new faces, others were familiar). Not only did I have fun talking about my art and photography, but I also had a chance to get the word out on my photography services, which was a great bonus!
The day was busy and I had two of my very good friends, Carol-Ann and Sarah there to help me out by talking to customers, selling and setting up/tearing down for the day. I also had a ton of help from my amazing sweetie of a husband who helped do everything from package my work, to set up my stand, to watch Noah and more. Also my good friends Leanne and Jeff helped me by getting my table and stock ready so that it looked nice and beautiful! Thank you so much to all my friends who helped me along the way, whether it was helping me organize or even just an encouraging word- it wouldn't have happened with out you guys!
And on top of a successful day at the Spruce Bog, I also had the chance to do two photo sessions on Sunday with two amazing families! Let's just say that snow and little adorable kids make awesome photos~ yay!
Also on Sunday it was Jeff and Leanne's daughter's birthday. EveyB's 3rd birthday! Happy birthday Evey! Your party rocked!
So all in all it was definitely a busy but fun filled weekend. Today is going to be all about unwinding and tidying up my neglected home. I'm actually getting more and more excited to decorate for Christmas but have told myself that the house must be clean before any of the decorations are hulled out. I'm also planning on heading out with Winslow and Noah onto the trails at some point today for some winter wonderland fun.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and that it was filled with fun times. Have a great start to the week!
ps. and finally I can announce that (by the end of today) I will be selling prints of my paintings on my etsy shop (for a limited time) like the one's you see above in the photos. They come signed, matted and packaged in a nice cellophane envelope with a little artist's bio attached. Hope you like them!
