Dixie Days Art Festival

 We now have our third art festival under our belts and it was a success! After jotting down some notes from the past two experiences we made some great improvements in our booth display and presentation. Though we love how our first one looked, it's better as a indoor display and did not handle the wind well. We had access to some old fruit crates and were able to build a display that is light to move and simply weighed down with some bricks from behind. We could even display from both sides once we develop the inventory. For now it is a great place to hide markers, cameras and some water.

We were able to use our pretty hemp with threads of blue metallic to hang Rachel's vibrant and playful illustrations. We love the look of them hanging and this way they don't blow in the wind as much and people were able to get a better look at them.

We were assigned at a corner for the art festival which gave us a great advantage with traffic. Our usual six foot tables were in a large "L" shape and we added a card table for the outer corner to utilize some space and draw more people in. 

So far, having booths art festivals have been one of my most favorite things I've decided to do in my life. I love people commenting on our creativity, throwing around more ideas on how to recycle or repurpose potential supplies for our art, and inspiring each other to do more creating with our lives. It all gives me a overwhelming high and I can't wait to put it to use. 

This experience at Dixie Days in North Webster Indiana was well organized, easy going, and so much fun. We will definitely be doing this again next year!

Next weekend is Art in the Park in Holland Michigan!
