The Michigan Lavender Festival 2012

This year for The Michigan Lavender Festival I rented a big ole tent {20ft. x 40ft.} I invited a few of my fave crafty pals to join me in filling the space with cool handmade stuff. It was amazing, and fun, because I also shared it with my 13 year old daughter! It was her first show selling her photographs.

I brought my crocheted accessories, the embroidery hoops,

lavender filled Russian Nesting Dolls, print copies
of The Handmade Companion, and some 
Make a Pretty project kits.

But my main reason for being there was to teach!

Teaching my Herbal Esthetician classes today @ The Michigan Lavender Festival #michiganlavenderfestival #myrightnow

I taught 3 classes each day. Two sessions of my

Herbal Esthetician class, and one
Lavender Embroidery class.

This 8 year old kid came to the class with his mom on Saturday, and wanted to learn how to embroider. He reserved a space in my morning embroidery class on Sunday.

 That night when I got home, I drew up a pattern of a rocket that I thought he might like, and that would be easy to follow. He showed up, started stitchin like a pro within 30 minutes, and ended up staying with me for 3 hours.

He even bought two patterns. He asked his mom if he could embroider in the car on the way home. I melted inside. LOVE it when kids get into crafting.

My friends all brought the coolest stuff for their booths… Check out {this post} for the complete list and links for the vendors in my tent.
