Maple Days was a HUGE Success!

Maple Days was a great success!  Thank you to everyone who came out for the festivities.  I met a lot of great new people, including lots of talented artists.  I would like to thank Scottie Magro of SEEDS Studio and Kim Szalay of Michigan Bead Supply Company for doing a great job organizing the event.  Both should be very proud!

I also had the pleasure of meeting Julie King and Gertie of Gertie Gear. Gertie is a sweet beagle and spokesdog for Gertie Gear, fantastic pet beds! These are handmade air beds with cute covers.  You gotta check 'em out!

Finally, I met Jill Hamilton-Krawczyk of Barrel of Monkeys.  Jill makes super cute buttons and button jewelry.  She is a graphic designer by trade and is incredibly talented.  

There are so many talented Michigan Artists and only a few were featured at Maple Days this past Monday.  You can find even more by visiting the Michigan Indie Crafters of Etsy (MICE) Blogspot.  This is the perfect summer to check out local art fairs and see for yourself all the talent Michigan artists have to offer.  Michigan summer art fairs are great places to see this talent on display.  I hope to see you out and about this summer!
