I was in the Barnes and Nobles at Easton the other day and saw one of my bags.
We were shopping around the store when my husband was calling my name and pointing.
I thought he was pointing at a book or something and totally didn't notice that the girl nearby me had one of my large tote bags with a deer applique. By the time I figured out what he was talking about she was on the other side of the store. But I am proud to say I saw it.
I find that to be the greatest compliment to my work, seeing my bags and purses in a public place when I least expect it. Whether it be at a restraunt, the grocery store, the library or at the mall. It is awesome.
During this years Comfest weekend I spotted a Mary Moon bag at least seven or eight times. A few of them stopped in for a visit and to shop.
Since I sell my work at shows and festivals it's not the most unlikely place to spot one of my creations but seeing someone walking down High Street with one on their arm is a pleasent surprise.
Thank you to all who have supported me and my business over the years I look forward to seeing you again.

The month of July is flying by so fast.

We spent the Fourth Of July at home watching my son and his friends light off fireworks. Not even a week later I set up at the Westerville Music and Arts Festival where we had a hot hot weekend. Attendance seemed a bit down but I had a successful weekend.I had quite a few of my regular customers stop by and visit and my friend (also a vendor) stayed at the house through the event.

A few days later I hoped on a bus and headed to New York City. This was my third trip there so I felt pretty comfortable getting around town to the places we wanted to see. This time around I took my youngest daughter and she loved it. I visited the Met for the first time where we stood in a long line to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit. It was well worth the wait because it was phenomenal.

and then this past weekend me and the family went to a wedding where my oldest daughter was the maid of honor. Her and the bride have been friends since grade school. They had a movie themed wedding because the bride and groom met at AMC theaters.

This week I hope to spend more time at the pool :o)
