“It’s fall, it’s fall, the colors tell us all!” quote from Kathleen Larkin’s song
My favorite season is here and I’m ready for chilly nights, cider, pumpkin beer, candy corn and Thanksgiving!!
I hope everyone had a pleasant summer, despite the drought here in New England. I’ve been very busy selling cards and gifts at farmer’s markets and drawing up a storm!!
There are new Wedding, Anniversary, Welcome Baby, Birthday, Catattitude, Bugs, Flowers and Halloween cards on my racks. And on the drawing board I’ll be working on a butterfly, more birthday, Christmas of course and Thanksgiving.
Fairs and Markets
I have 3 fairs in October. The first is at Curcurbit Farm in Acton, October 9th. It’s very fun little farm with great produce and there will be lots local vendors and a scarecrow contest, so come prepared ! Then October 15th I’ll be at the Harvest Craft Fair at the First Parish Church in Sudbury on route 117. The fair runs from 10-4, I never been to this show, but it’s been around for over 20 yrs. Lastly I should be at the Conant School in Acton on October 23rd 10-4. If you are interested in buying cards in bulk, you can get them at the fairs. I’m also selling Owl bags, matted prints of the birds of prey and cat toys with a matching card as a unique gift for cat lovers.
I will be playing with my usual buddies Jon Swenson, John Ferullo at the Java Room in Chelmsford on Dec 17th. With some special guests for sure!!
I almost forgot, I’m making another tree for the Concord Museum’s Family Trees Exhibit, it’s inspired by the book the Grasshopper and the Ants, by Jerry Pinksey. We had a lot of decorators this time, so I am expecting an extra wonderful show!! The exhibit runs from Nov 22nd to New Years Day, Concord Massachusetts, Cambridge Turnpike. Stop in, I guarantee you will leave with a nice dose of Christmas spirit!
And that’s it for now, happy fall and as always I’m humbled by how you have all supported my business over the years, thank you very much, Betsi
