The Mattoon Arts Festival is always one of my favorite shows. Fabulous people and amazing weather, what more could you ask for? Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth is this year, I was happy to see a lot of old friends and new friends! My first year, I remember being so nervous but everyone was so welcoming and encouraging. This year was particularly special, as it marks my ninth year at the Festival, and as if on cue many of my first customers stopped by to say hello and support Craftydoll. Mattoon is near and dear to my heart, and I’ve loved visiting the historic brownstones here on Mattoon Street each year. I look forward to next year’s show!
