Join Me at the Shakerag Festival in September

I'm good about posting here once a week on Wednesdays and sending a newsletter every week.

Last week? I was caught up in a few things and completely forgot what day it was!

Thursday morning I thought, "Oh no! I forgot to post a blog and send my newsletter!" LOL.


And today's post/newsletter is quick, and, yes, you've seen the photo recently! 

I picked this photo because it's Starrs Mill in Fayetteville, and I'm going to have a booth at the Shakerag Festival in Peachtree City this year which is right nearby. 

I'm excited about this!

In early 2020, I was signed up for my first small festival at my niece's school when I got the news that it was canceled due to Covid. I remember saying to my sister, "I'm sure they'll reschedule in a couple of weeks."

Ha! Little did I know, right?

I went through a lot of soul-searching, wondering, and trying to figure out what I was doing during the pandemic.

My main income before Covid was from capturing corporate events but that went away in a heartbeat. I put in for pandemic assistance from the state but I've never seen a dime even though I qualified.

Don't get me started. 

All that to say - this is the first big art fair/craft festival I've participated in and I'm excited about it. 

I hope you can come out to Peachtree City September 16-17 and check out my booth. I'd love to meet you, and it's a great way to see some pieces in person so you get a better idea of what they look like.

I know some people find it daunting to buy art online. 

The festival is from 10 a.m. Saturday, September 16th, until Sunday at 5 pm. Saturday it's open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday it's open from Noon to 5 p.m. It's at 201 McIntosh Trail in Peachtree City, 30269.

It seems early to announce my participation but I'm already in full festival setup mode. There's a ton I need to do to make this work. If this goes well, I'm hoping to be able to do several festivals a year.  

I'll remind you a few more times before the actual event but I wanted to get on your radar early if you're the craft fair/festival type. 

Also, if you've never been to Peachtree City, it's a pretty little suburb south of the airport that's unique for its 100+ miles of golf cart and recreation paths throughout the city. 

I'm also looking forward to spending the weekend with my sister and her family and my parents who have all volunteered to come out and help me!  

Enjoy your week and ohmygosh - stay cool. It's supposed to reach 100 by Saturday here in the ATL! 

Hopefully, September won't be quite this hot!

See you between the raindrops...maybe.


You can find the above print here. Let me know if there's a specific print you'd like to see at the festival in person and I'll make sure I have one on hand.
