Hello, My Friends!
I’ve missed all of you and I’ve really missed #craftyfridays. To make up for last weeks tardiness I’m going to share a few last minute Halloween crafts next week, then we go straight into Thanksgiving and that’s just mindblowing. I participated in The Wharf Festival last week and I attended my Fathers 60th Birthday Celebration the week before.
Happy 60th Birthday Daddy
The Wharf Festival was disappointing. I was so excited about showing my art in San Francisco, I thought it would be a crazy big day but it wasn’t, the overhead was pretty intense, $50 for parking!?!?!?!? I didn’t make much profit, but hey it happens. It’s all a learning experience and I don’t think I’ll be doing this event next year, but these pictures are pretty darn awesome.
It’s time to get crafty!
