Buy Local First Fair: Recap

Yesterday was a long, hot day at the Buy Local First Fair, but the many smiling faces I saw made it all OK! I was so happy to be a part of this big day for local businesses in Louisville. The food, the crafty wares, and the crowds were a pleasant sight! J helped me set up my booth, including my new doll display that I just love!

I had some new dolls, including Kit the Cat, Pip the Pup, Hoot the Owl, and Honey the bear! People really loved seeing them. I have re-listed the dolls that I did not sell yesterday in my etsy shop, so be sure to check that out!

Cloud Plush

Cloudy by E. Magee

Meet Cloudy! He's a little plush I made for J based on a sketch he did when we first started dating.
See, little Cloudy is hungover, and he's throwing up rainbows! The sketch made me laugh, so I tucked it away. It has since inspired me to make this plush!
It is really capturing my mood lately. To me, bright colors are happy, and I am pretty excited for the Buy Local First Fair this Sunday.
But Cloudy is also a little sad and feeling sick, which is sort of how I feel today because I lost a special former co-worker this week. She was only 31. I am feeling more than a little blue. She was so spirited and enthusiastic, and brought lots of Sunshine into my life. I know that she supported my crafty endeavors, and probably would have come out to the show Sunday! I will definitely miss her.
I hope little Cloudy makes you laugh. Even though he's a sad little cloud, he makes me smile, and that is so important right now.

Happy Derby!

Today is the 138th running of The Kentucky Derby! Unless you've been to Louisville, you may not realize what a big deal the day is to locals, but we love it. It's a special time of year when our city and state gain national attention. I love Louisville and am so proud to be celebrating our Derby holiday today!
