It was so good to do the Mattoon Arts Festival again. I can’t believe that this was my eighth year! Once again everyone was so wonderful, generous and helpful – must be something in the water on Mattoon street. The weather was fantastic and we had a great weekend. I was so grateful that the rain decided to wait untill the end of the day on Sunday. It was so nice so to see all the familiar faces and friends. Now its time to gear up for the Makers Market in November!
