My kiddo is, like, SUPER into Wings of Fire right now. 

It seems like that's going to be this generation's Redwall, eh? (Am I showing my age here? Heh...) 

No matter, it's all good. We all need some kind of a fantasy creature series to get into as a kid, don't we? She absolutely devours the books and the graphic novels. If we're in the store and she's picking up the next installment, she'll walk around the store with her nose in the book and completely entrenched in the pages. 

Could be worse! 

Summer Market Kickoff

I have to say, the summer market is one of my favorite events to participate in every year. I may be a little biased, considering that the market is right down the street from my house. ;) Still, it's always an enjoyable experience, and I love connecting with my neighbors and community! 

This year, we're mostly going to be set up near the center of Butler Park by the fountain. This may change as everyone gets settled into where they would like to be, but for now that's my spot. Just follow your nose--! 

Can't wait to see you! 

Can’t win ‘em all…

Ah, boogers! I really thought this one was gonna be a winner.... 

I recently acquired a recipe for jelly soap. You know, the super jiggly stuff that kids just love?

I had all of these grand ideas of putting together some awesome jelly dragon soaps for the kids at the Renaissance Faire this year, but it just was not meant to be. T__T 

My first go with the recipe turned out looking like scrambled eggs. Overcooked! Bummer. 

New Hampshire Renaissance Faire - 20 YEARS!

Wow, what a blast! We so very much enjoyed our time at the New Hampshire Renaissance Faire this year - and if you went, I hope you did, too! 

The kids battled dragons and trolls, we all adopted some kind of creature from other artisans, and of course we made new friends.
