A very big thank you!

I cannot even begin to thank everyone who came out to the Patchwork and Urban Air Market shows! For someone this awkward, meeting people is actually the best part of my job. I've always heard it was good to go outside (one and a while), but people are so much nicer in person than the internet. To be real, the Bay area is filled with some pretty awesome people (and that includes vendors).

To start with Urban Air- I might have challenged nature a little with my perpetually cynical expectations, so I will ignore the fact that it did rain, my tent did fall over and San Francisco was donned with our bi-annual clap of thunder on that particular day. Still, it brought us all closer together, and though my ghettocrafty sign bled pathetic, blackemokid tears from the water, it all worked out because I made another sign. A better sign, so eat it nature.* And, you know what? The sun came out and people still wandered the streets
of Hayes Valley - even in the rain.

of what to do with my hands...

Patchwork was invariably less dramatic (being on the summer end of the Bay) and the show was, you know, indoors, so it was naturally lovely and balmy out (a sensation you try and forget about, living in a wall of SF fog). Only once did I knock all my cards from the stand with my yeti hands. The one smidgen of alarm was a 4 year old's plot to kidnap Madame Pancake, but poor Pancake weighed more than both the child and her conspirator. 
All in all, the past two Sundays were a total blast. Again, it is thanks to all of the people who made it possible, and the ones who came out to give company to us lonely, trapped vendors.
Now I will get back to doing whatever it is I do. Here are the last few pictures because I have no idea where else to put them.
Yeep...totally awk

*Don't eat it, nature. I'm not challenging you again.

    That is awesome Kris! I am glad so many people came out to support you and it sounds like you got great feedback! Love reading about your trials and tribulations with nature! Love you!

  2. I loved your artwork. I'm not sure what the piece I bought is called, but I dubbed her Lady in Blue. She is currently adorning both my house and Facebook walls. I suspect Madame Pancake was your awesome unicorn; I can totally see why the little one wanted to take her off your hands. :P

    1. Awesome! I'm glad she found you and goes so well with your color scheme.
      I am also glad that my unicorn can handle herself. I'd be in trouble otherwise...

  3. Wish I could have been there for that awesome time. Good recap. You might have to start an east coast road show...
