I rarely have time or energy to post pictures post craft show but I’m taking the time for this post-Craftacular post.
Here’s what my booth looked like pre-setup. and another pre-setup view…
It took a lot of time
but I did manage to fit it all in!
I’ll admit – I have a bit of crafting ADD – I displayed and sold my quilts, matryoshka doll ornaments, jewelry, typewriter rings, interactive paper dolls, and my new pocket pillowcases! Oh – let’s not forget the Lapacek’s Orchard apple cider donuts we made the night before! It was a great show – lots of familiar faces and lots of new friends! Thanks to everyone who attended!
One of the awesome benefits of living on a gorgeous apple orchard is that photographer’s love to use it for their ‘back drop’ during photo shoots. About a month back I was contacted by a ‘new to me’ photographer, a miss Karmen Linder of Karmen Linder Photography. She came out to the orchard, we chatted, I showed her around and she met my girls. The same day we set up a photo shoot of my girls so she could promote mini sessions at my orchard.
“Can I take pictures of your kids?” Of course! I love having my kids photographed and they’ve been exposed to enough that they’re usually pretty good and listen to the photographer. I just wanted to show off a few of the AMAZING shots that Karmen got of my girls!
The adorable Persimoni sporting one of my hand-dyed bubble rompers that I have for sale at my apple orchard. Pip is at that difficult age for photo’s (16 months) but let me tell you – Karmen was excellent with her – apples on her head, shoes on her head, crazy noises and she got some amazing shots of my little doll!Cedi and Capri – Cedi’s (left) wearing an Empire Waisted Hand Dyed Dress and Capri (right) is wearing a Tie Shoulder Hand – Dyed Dress with Caplet sleeves. I have some of the dyed dresses listed in my etsy shop but I have more to list so if you’re looking for something in particular just let me know! Now this is my FAVORITE set up of the girls that Karmen took! I was putting Pip down for a nap when I came back and saw this set up! I just LOVE it! In this shot Capri (left) is wearing a spaghetti strap empire waisted hand-dyed dress and Cedi (right) is wearing a Ruched Top Hand Dyed Sundress with Spaghetti Straps.
Thank you thank you thank you Karmen for sharing these amazing photos’ with me!
I wanted to do a post related to one of the recent Etsy Finds Emails we received. I want to see if I have anything that fits in with the Fall’s Hottest Color Trends or if I need to do some work – and fast!
Looks like I need a ‘Rose Smoke’ item in my Persimon Dreams shop…
Mix It Up
I haven’t posted a spoonflower fabric feature in a few weeks but I figure today is the perfect day. I took one photo that I took of a pinwheel to create all these spectacular fabrics. Just by cropping and playing with colors and effects you can see all the differences in the pieces.
