This Saturday December 1, 2012 I am going to be at Arbor Lodge coffee shop for their neighborhood craft bazaar. You can meet me because I am having a little table and I am going to sell some of my art and new art too! And it is a craft fair and don't go there at the day time looking for the craft fair because it's at night 6:00 to 10:00! Ok! And hope to see you there!
My mom and one of her friends decided to go to this event called All Stars of the New Economy by Supportland and it was at ADX, where my mom just got a working membership so we got to check it out!
We picked up mom's friend and her daughter, and we all went to ADX. When we first got there, we got a name tag that said "ask me about" and I filled in "my art and my website" and my name. I remembered to bring my business cards in a little bag that I made!
I got to sign this giant fabric sign as a commitment for shopping locally this holiday season!
So then we went over to the next booth and wrote on a chalk board which local shop we like to go to and then we take a picture of it, and I wrote Scrap! Because I love shopping there!
Then there was a DJ and he did the robot and all sorts of other stuff, it was pretty cool. There was a kids craft table and we made card board stars. There is a special kind of glue, and you put glitter on it, and you heat it up and it turns into metallic. My little sister says it's like magic! I made a lot of stars and I put them around my head and I looked like the queen of stars!
I talked to lots of people! I handed out lots of business cards, it was fun to see what other people know about. There were some tattoo drawings on the wall, I liked those. There was a lot of pizza and peanut butter jelly sandwiches.
I danced to the dj's music, there was all this different music, it was really cool and amazing, I loved it!
Thank you Supportland and ADX, it was great being there with you guys!
My mom was invited to be a part of a fashion show at the ReUse Expo and the people involved in the fashion show got some booth space there too, and I got to sell my things! I walked around and met other people who were selling things, I saw a lot of dresses, and one had a key and a door knob as part of the dress! It was so cool. And for a wig there was old curly telephone cords. There were clocks, and all sorts of things made out of recycled things!
A lot of people came to my booth and I sold a lot of my art! I really felt like a part of a community of people that love art.
Then I got to model in the fashion show! Another lady asked me to model one of her vests, so I got to model twice! I felt really happy to be a part of all the people that loved art and love recycled things!
I even won a bag and a Chinook Book mobile app!
