  1. Our favorite festival memory is just being in the fun environment! We are happily making festival memories this year as we prepare our handmade crafts! So excited for the opportunity to be a part of the Bluegrass Festival this year!

  2. And I shared the giveaway on Facebook!

    1. My best memory is all the fun my family and I have from shopping, to buying items and food tasting. I can already smell the kettle corn, the cotton candy and funnel cakes.

  3. My favorite craft show memory was my highschool craft shows!local crafty vendors, friends and parents enjoying hot chocolate and walking around enjoying all the vendors!love the holiday seasons and craft fairs just top off the holiday spirits!

  4. My favorite memory is from high school. My theatre group was competing in Lubbock, and there happened to be an fun and festive craft show going on next door! Needless to say, we spent our lunch money there!

  5. And I just tweeted the giveaway as well!

  6. My favorite craft memory is meeting and seeing all the other vendors and all the different things everyone sells, and actually getting to meet and interact with my customers.

  7. Fair memories to me are about moments. The way the breeze blows in autumn while you wander around, snacking on goodies, hearing bands in the background beneath people's excited voices and kids running by. There's a quiet excitement for the cool nights, fireplaces, and the comfort foods we sample at the fair, agonizing what to take home to indulge in later. Knowing that winter is coming, and wanting to get our hands on every bit of that lovely buzz of the fall transition. Smoky air mingles with the smell of chili and BBQ, and you wish that maybe there were just a few more weekends of fairs. But then you realize, no matter how fleeting autumn fairs are, the second they come around again, you realize you still remember it all.

  8. I love festivals! I enjoy everything about them. The great atmosphere and breathing all the different smells from all the foods. It just takes me back to my childhood! :-)


  9. My favorie festival memories have become meeting the other vendors. I had no idea I would make so many new friends at these events. My second event I met Pamela from Dallas Soap and I love running into her at events. My favorite memories are meeting my neighbors and feeling like I've known them by the end of the weekends.
