Well gang, this was my first year doing Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green. Ohio. First year with a Honorable Mention Ribbon. But my sales were though the roof.

They handed us water, baked goods, bananas and gave us restroom breaks. I happy to do Maple and Main for I used to live in Sylvania, Ohio back in the day. Here is a…Continue

I was rejected for South University Art Fair, Crosby Festival of the Arts and now tonight Arts and Apples. It makes me wonder about my other applications. Will those be okay or will I see more rejections? I guess I am in a down year. Which I did not anticipate...
