Name my Sales Fairy Contest

Whenever someone on the Etsy Maine Team makes a sale, they say the Sales Fairy visited them. I haven't had very many visits from the Sales Fairy, so I decided to get my very own. I found her at the show I did this past weekend: the Arts Across Ellsworth show. She was made by Christina Heiniger of Fern House Studio. She's even carrying a little cat! Autumn (Autumnslings) told me later that the cat is a symbol of prosperity.

She has an honored place on the top of my computer screen and it didn't take long for Willow to notice her and sniff her all over.

So here's the deal: She needs a name. From now until August 11th, I'll take suggestions (just comment below) for her name and the winner will get a free pair of earrings. The judge will be me and I will simply pick the name I like best from all the suggestions. On August 11th I will have a little naming ceremony and announce her name and the winner.

Coming Soon...

I have been working hard on many new pieces, including necklaces, earrings and bracelets with Swarovski crystal, vintage glass beads and some fun ceramic beads I found.

Also in the works are several new PMC pieces: Nature-inspired butterfly, chrysanthemum and starfish necklaces and a little ladybug pin as well as some funky and fun earrings.

You can get a sneak peak at these pieces at the Arts Across Ellsworth Art and Craft Show this Friday (10:00 to 6:00) and Saturday (10:00 to 4:00) at the Maine Grind on Main Street in Ellsworth. Look for some of the pieces to appear in my Etsy shop next week.

Please join me and all the great artisans and crafters at the Arts Across Ellsworth Art and Craft Show this weekend, Friday, July 24th from 10:00 to 6:00 and Saturday, July 25th from 10:00 to 4:00.

It is upstairs at the Maine Grind, on Main Street in Ellsworth. While you are there, you can get some awesome coffee. On Saturday, there will be a farmer's market outside in the parking lot.

If you've not been to Ellsworth in a while, we have some awesome shops downtown, too, including the Grasshopper Shop, J&B Atlantic, Four the Fun of It (toys), John Edwards Market and many others. Hope to see you there!

Happy Fourth of July!

I will be at the MDI YMCA Craft Fair on the Fourth from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The fair is in the YMCA parking lot on Park Street in Bar Harbor (near the ball fields for those familiar with Bar Harbor). There will be lots of goings-on in town that day. Check out the schedule here: http://mdislander.com/site/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=6461&Itemid=36.

There will be several of my fellow Etsy Maine Teamers and I am sure many other wonderful vendors, so be sure to check us out!

And let's all do an anti-rain dance.
