And that sums up my day! It was a wonderful Old Home Week event, or shall I say events, yesterday! The town showed up for the parade, it was covered by two news stations and my daughter’s girl scout troop won 1st place for their root beet float float!
After the parade the girls sold hundreds of root beer floats to raise money for their troop! We did much better than we expected, in fact one of the moms had to run to the store twice for more ice cream and root beer! I did a lot of running that day because it was the release date for the book The Rainbow Pants written by Kelly Brooks Bay and illustrated by me! Here we are at the book release party signing books:
These fabulous photos were taken by Patty Violette of Little Pine Photography. If you live in the Bangor Maine Area and need a photographer do check her out!
And here is my little craft fair booth, pretty much like it looked last time We had a pretty good day in sales, I sold 3 watercolor paintings, several bracelets, some earrings and a lot of cards! I had not sold any of my bracelets up until this fair so that was a relief! I hired my son to watch my booth while I was at the book signing and he handled it like a pro, he even made 3 sales, one of which was a painting! I think this is a great way to teach math, maybe next time I’ll put him on commission and teach him fractions LOL!
What there was my day in a nutshell. I hope to check out more of the Old Home Week events this week…wiffle ball tournament anyone? Til next time happy crafting!
