Well here I am with a long overdue fairwell to summer. This year has been a blur with a lot of ups and a few downs.
I was lucky enough to vend at three folk festivals, two beer festivals, and the Blades of Glory medieval festival. I made new friends, and reconnected with old friends. Had a lot of laughs and great conversations!
Getting back into the festival scene has been great! It feels like coming home after the seven years I took off, and I'm looking forward to putting even more into it next year!
My beer steins have pretty much become my life now, but I do have plans of expanding what I offer.
The candle lantern I made early this year is something I want to start producing. I have always found it to be a beautiful design, and it seems like a great way to honour my dad who used to make them.
When I built my own timber frame booth, I found a love for that as well, and I'm hoping to be able to do a few builds next year and maybe expand into doing garden sheds and tiny homes!
All in all I feel like my purpose in life is woodworking, and I need to concentrate my energies on just that.
So I would like to thank @mariposafolk @summerfolk @riverandsky @bladesofgloryca @makewaves and @mackinnonbrewing for the chance to be a vendor.
Thanks to my wife @dahliamayflowerfarm to my sister @pennyrosecreations and my friends @willowferndesigns and @germinate for all the help along the way!
Lets all have a great fall, relaxing winter and a fun but busy spring and summer!
