Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - First and Foremost - May 20 , 2015


It has been a wild week since my last blog post (preparing for Art in the Park, selling at Art in the Park and recovering from Art in the Park), so I've opted to keep the wording short this week.  And to make it easy to chose an item to feature:  the first one.  So I'm titling this edition of Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade as "First and Foremost".  By the way, with as busy as these artists are, the item featured might not be the first one in the shop by the time you see this.  I hope you enjoy the choices (first now or not).
