the happy land of handmade.

Have you ever felt like you were 100% "in your element"?  
ALL DAY I had the feeling that I was exactly where I was "supposed" to be.  Surrounded by people that take craft seriously (which lots of people don't, sadly) and are selling their handmade treasures.  
This is where I want to be.
My first "official" craft fair was today and it was a great learning experience and up front training.  I took away tons of "to-do's" for next time and several "no-no's" as well.  
I met so many talented crafters and artisans, made quite a few connections and (my very favorite) learned how to properly create a "ZINE".  (Thanks, Capella!)
My gracious friend, Jenn was there with me the entire day–THANK YOU, FRIEND!
Here are several pictures of my booth.  
*Most importantly: Cherry Tree Lane will be able to make a donation to the Long Beach Public Library Foundation because of YOU!  Thanks for coming out and supporting Cherry Tree Lane!
The next scheduled show is Dec 6th from 10-4pm at the HANDMADE BRIGADE at the Tall Mouse.
