One of the first patrons I met at the Renaissance Festival was a fantastic person who goes by the name Lady Dragon. As she perused my shop she commented that she would love one of my fairy signs if it could be made into a dragon one instead. Of course, I jumped on the opportunity and over the next few weeks worked with Lady Dragon on making her own personalized Dragon Sign. She e...

I can't believe my first season at the MN Renaissance festival has come to an end. I had such an amazing experience and it was exhausting and stressful almost as much as it was enriching and motivating. But I would do it all again in an instant! I will miss all the conversations with the patrons as well as with my neighbors. I made a few friends here for sure and can't wait until...

This weekend was a scorcher! But it didn't seem to keep the crowds away. We had so much fun getting to see Karen again and her grandson Jack Jack! He was quite the salesman himself! ;) Like many little ones, he chose a dragon egg for his purchase. Then on Sunday a turtle collector managed to find my booth! Can you tell she likes purple too? ;) Thank you for your purchase! Hope ev...

The weekend of September 16th was Pets and Pirates at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. We had our first taste at some colder fall days which was more than welcome. I added a few more "pets" to the shop including a gargoyle named Goyle and a blue dragon named Jasper. We had a young purple lover as our first sale of the day whom I later discovered was an ambassador my cousin Man...

Chris made the long journey back from Louisiana to help finish out the holiday weekend. Huzzah! We also had a very special patron buy a lovely leaf pendant from me (none other than my fantastic sister, Jessy!) The following day we had another customer in her wonderful ninja character costume purchase my first spider sale of the year! Farewell to my beautiful Black Widow pendant!...

I owe a huge thank you to my sister Greta for helping me out on the Saturday over Labor day weekend! We had such a lovely day and we got to chat with many happy customers including our first sale of the day-- This lovely lady bought a trio of dragon eggs for her fairy garden. Thank you for your patronage!

I had such a wonderful weekend with my dear friend, Karen! The weather was a little damp but overall pretty comfortable. We had a ton of fun laughing and telling each other stories all day!

First sale of the day! I am so touched by this woman's story. Her husband recently passed away and one of my tree Guardians looked like him. They were actually married here at the festival. She...

I had such a wonderful experience selling at the first weekend of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival 2017. I finally got to see the culmination of our hard work over the past 6 months, and it was incredible. Everything came together better than I imagined and I couldn't be happier. 

The biggest surprise this weekend was how kind, helpful and hospitable all the other arti...
