Rugs, Rugs, and more Rugs

I had a chance to actually touch these woven rugs and they are just beautiful. I was so impressed with the huge amount of work put into each and every item she makes. She even does some rugs that are woven out of strips of fabric. Nice work. See her website HERE.

Yolanda Jeweler

Yolanda is a local artist who participated in the DAWF this past weekend. She makes beautiful jewelry out of precious metals. I love the whimsical look of her pieces too. She attends many art fairs in the area, and has a beautiful and professional setup too. Her work is top notch.
Please feel free to visit her ETSY SITE, and support local artists.

These pictures include Copper and Sterling Silver Earrings, 23K Gold Plated Earrings, Silver-Soldered Copper Applique, a Sterling Silver Bracelet, and more.

Tonight's Festivities...

There was a good crowd tonight. I got there about 7:30, and the live music was in full swing. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. The entry fee was $5 for non-drinkers, kids under 12 FREE, and ONLY $10 to receive a wine glass and get to sample all of the drinks. That is a good deal.

I saw some really great artists there. Some I knew from last year, some (many) were new this year too! The music I saw was of the James Brown era-type too. People were dancing and having fun. The kids were really getting into the music too.

Overall, this event was fun to attend, and the weather was so amazing today. Even possibly light jacket weather tonight too.

Some of the artists included: Courtney Smith (Coordinator and Screen Printer), Ashley Gierke (Amazing and Intricate paper cutouts - WOW!!), Blissful Notions (Janice Plemon), Ken Burnside (Landscape Paintings), The Hemp Master (Brennen Stanley), Morgan's Serendipity, Miranda's Loom (, My Sister 2 (Soaps n Such), Ruth's Soap, Josh Nobling (Painted Portriature), Yolanda (Fine Metal Jewelry), and more. I grabbed as many business cards as I could, so I am sorry if I missed your name!

Here are some images of the fair:

Hope to see you there next time...
Keep checking back for updates and links to artists' websites and contact info.


Tonight: The first show of 2009

I plan on taking a bunch of pictures and getting business cards of vendors so I can begin adding them and making this blog even more fun and interesting.

Hope everyone does really well tonight. I am sure there will be a ton of people there since the weather is awesome today. Temps under 80, and under...

The very first event in 2008
