Carnival Hearts and Arts and Thanks

Even though the weather forecast played a switch-a-roo on us, our third event was still a beautiful success. Three days of thunderstorms were predicted, forcing us to take the celebration inside the Where?house. But much to our surprise, we woke Saturday to find nothing but sunshine and blue skies. No matter, folks like us can have a good time almost anywhere!

We had loads of great vendors selling their handmade wares and publications, musicians and poets keeping the crowd entertained, the folks of Griddle Me This keeping a steady flow of veggie burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and other snacks moving on and off the grill, and everyone seemed to have a great time. At the end of the evening, we raffled off 5 gift certificates to Nemesis Tattoos. Now THOSE were some smiling winners!

Endless hugs and thank you's to all who participated, whether performing, selling or just hanging out, making all our work worthwhile. We had adults, kids, pets, and everyone in between out to spend the afternoon and evening with us. 

Since this is a celebration of art and the heart it takes to make and enjoy it, it would be nothing without all of you. 

We'd love for you to share your experiences with us....leave us a comment below...tell us what you like about our events, what you could live without and what you'd like to see us do again. Also share your photos with us. We have a flickr group that you can find here. Add your photos to the group so that we can see what you saw. 

We are likely to have our next event in September, so keep your eyes on this blog and our facebook page. If you'd like to get involved, email us at

See you all in the fall!!

P.s I am still working on the photos I took at this month's event and I will get them all up for you soon.

  1. Next time have the music at the very rear of an indoor venue. It seemed like the vendors behind the stage went mostly unnoticed by the throngs of people who never ventured back there.
