Fall Creations and New Orleans Trip

Fall is my favorite time of the year!  It is the time when I get the most creative with making Halloween Costumes, fall decor, Halloween/fall dog scarves, and Trick-or-Treat Bags.

Besides Christmas time, Fall is the time I enjoy and participate in craft shows and farmers markets the most.  I love the weather and the atmosphere at farmers markets during the fall season.  The Virginia Beach Farmers Market craft show events I participate the most in but unfortunately, the events were cancelled 2 weekends in a row due to the heavy rain and hurricane threats on the east coast.  But that’s okay, I have been participating in other crafts shows including the “Riverview Village Days” which is a new local craft fair event in Norfolk, Virginia that is held once a month in the summer/fall.  It was a great event full of other local vendors and artisans.

Last week I took a trip to New Orleans with my boyfriend and a couple of our friends, and it was my first visit.  Of course I loved the food there, and loved the layouts and architecture of the older buildings.   But most of all, I loved the artistic culture atmosphere.  We checked out several art shows and craft markets, and saw some awesome local art and paintings.  We even took home a few pieces of art with us!  I mostly checked out the art and shops to gain some inspiration from the local artisans.  I also loved the popularity of sugar skulls in the City and how they were all included on clothes, jewelry, and paintings.  New Orleans is definitely an exciting City, and definitely unique from other Cities here in America.  I had a great time, and would love to go back some day.
