Grand Opening - I Heart Handmade for Fall

Have you ever wandered through an arts and crafts fair, stopping at eye-catching booths, exchanging a few words with the artists there, shopping for yourself or loved ones, and just enjoying the browse? Well, thanks to the very creative folks from Indie Handmade, it's now possible to browse such a show right online, from the comfort of your computer chair...heck, in pajamas, if you like!

The difference is, this show will last for 4 whole weeks AND, some very special prizes and other fun things will be happening over this period. But first things first. Because you're starting here at MY little blog....please start HERE to take a peek at my "booth" first.

OK? How did you like it? Well, it will be changing and new pieces will be added regularly over the exhibition...so I hope you'll check back now and then. Plus, and this is just a special favor I'm asking my blog readers...each time you visit the show from my blog, I'm earning a credit. If I happen to get the most "referrals" (credits) during the show--these will help me win a valuable prize: a whole YEAR of "I Heart Handmade" booths for 2010!!

So be sure to visit and visit often....there will be so much to see and do! The "front page" of the show will change almost every day as new prizes and specials are announced, as new shops are added to the show, and as different shops are featured on the front page.

And then, as you visit the individual shops here, you are invited to leave comments for the artists...and if I know my regular blog visitors...you will probably have many excellent things to say, which speaking as an artist, can really make our day!! Naturally, all things at the show are available for purchase--in fact, each photo links directly to each artist's shop to keep this easy and hassle free.

We'll be talking a bit more about the wonders and virtues of handmade versus commercial products here during the show. And I hope you see new artists that you like and new art, crafts, and handmade products that you just can't resist.

I love handmade... have tried selling things over the years, but what I think people should like and what they do buy are miles apart... I suppose that's no surprise.
