pile of craft is pile of done.  there is much to say.  firstly, i need to thank some folks.  the other people who i have the pleasure of being in this crafty family with are more awesome than any other group of people i’ve ever worked with- they are creative, hard working, inspiring people.  they are not complainers.  they are caring and compassionate, and i love them.  thanks, guys, for being you, for spelling me all day at my info booth, for sharing your good vibe with me. 

thanks to the vendors, who waited patiently for their promised burritos, raved about everything and have made my exhaustion feel totally worthwhile. 

thanks to the people who run the space, red emma’s bookstore, for being cool, making great food, and making this beautiful space available and accessible financially to a small group. 

thanks to all the locals and non-locals (there was a lady from New Orleans!) who came out and supported this show.  i’m estimating there were at least 2000 of you.  you not only showed your great appreciation for indie artists, you also made those of us who live here proud to be baltimoreans. 

also, thanks to my sister, who drove an hour and a half to come to the show, and then put my kids to bed so that i could go to the after party.  big love. 

whew.  you know, when something that starts in your head becomes a real live thing, and is happening, and thriving, right before your eyes, it’s tough to explain that level of elation.   it’s sort of like waking up from a dream, i think.  i can’t wait for the next one.
