Inspiration Workshop through Gussy Sews Installment #1!

I've referred a couple times to the Gussy Sews blog...and this is the first week I'm posting in this blog as a part of the Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop! You should check it out if you're up for being inspired and photography...and community;) - join me in the fun!

The prompt for this week was HANDMADE and here's my favorite photo from Unglued that I'm using:

The inspiring part:  this was the first indie craft fest in Fargo, ND and it was totally nerve wracking if anyone was even going to show up!  I love this photo of Bemidji graphic designer/screen printer Cody Bartz (no website yet, but I believe his goods can be obtained through Bad Cat Creations in Bemidji) selling some amazing artwork to an adorable lady - the crowd who came was so much more diverse than I ever anticipated!  I could have peed my pants I was so excited to see all different generations having a great time celebrating the creatively handmade.  The best comments I heard were from very typical street fair goers saying "this is so much better than the street fair!" they discovered the beauty of handmade in a fresh, new way.

Can't wait for what's to come!  On the docket of possibilities is a winter Unglued in Grand Forks...a craft consignment pop up shop for Christmas...and an awesome venue in the works for Unglued next winter/spring in Fargo!!
