Thank You Slotin Folk Fest !..............................

What an amazing weekend 
at the
 21st annual
 Slotin Folk Fest
Atlanta, GA
Thank you to all that made it an incredible weekend for us!
Yep, these are my little "jug heads"
They had a blast at the show being inspired by all the art and socializing with wonderful people.
My hubby was along too(apparently camera shy) and was a big help! I couldn't do the shows without him.
I met so many wonderful artist, collectors and fair folk!
I was amazed and honored to be amongst so many talented and fabulous artist
 from all over the United States. 
I got to meet Louise Grenell in person at the show. She made the journey with her hubby to take in all the folk art. I have followed her blog and it was great to meet her in person. Check out her talents at
I also got to meet the super talented Carol Roll
 She is a sweetheart and I have admired her whimsical folk art sculptures on Etsy but to see the real thing in person did not disappoint! if you visit her link, you can see lots of great pictures from the show. Another artist with bigger than life amazing mixed media works is Andy Saczynski. His wife took some great pics at the show. You can check out more about the show highlights and this Florida artist at

I wish I had photos to share, but unfortunately I was so absorbed into it all that I forgot to snap pictures of the rows and rows of fabulous artists.
Well, stay tuned.....................
 kids go back to school on Monday and I will begin
 to list Halloween characters in my Etsy shop!


  1. I have admired your dolls for a long time and it was awesome seeing them in person! Especially great to meet you too! I am glad we were able to come down for the show.

    It was hard to take in everything at Folk Fest because there is just so much to look at but I loved it all. SD Meadows is one of my favorites too. I bought a carved wooden star from him.

    Glad you had a good show!
