we did it!-part 1: Patchwork Santa Ana-June 2010

boy oh boy did we have a crazy weekend. this past Sunday, we had the Santa Ana location of out beloved Patchwork event.
even though this is our 8th event, there are always some things that dont go, "perfect in my dreams" kind of way...might have to do with changes because our little dream has grown!
for this event we closed down Buffalo St which was next to our usual bi-parking lot sites...lemme just tell you, street closure is AWESOME: less heat from the pavement (black on the lots) and it looked 100 times better.
i have to say a uber-special shout out to City of Santa Ana & all the residents on Buffalo for making the closure smooth as butter-we thought it would never happen, but it did without the head/heartaches that we thought we would have.
BIT closing the street meant a different way do doing things: new maps, spacing, paperwork, staffing...a few long nights for both nicole and i were made to help make this latest event one of the best events yet! here are some images of things i noticed and loved.

(bike valet: it was a big hit!)

(solar powered music-YES!)

(new to the event: CSUF glassworks-totally gorg!)

(Risa came from SF with her AWESOME screen printed creations)

(Amorviejo, a local fave had a beautiful booth)

(grand central had a great photo set-up)

(still jealour of Makers League's sign-cute right?)

(Estasia of Wadada sportin' the classes and organic movement)

(Kelso Doesn't Dance-check out her little drawers!!!)

(Salvage Life-super cute stuff, she'll be in LB too!)

(i had to have at least 2 people helping-we were SLAMMED the whole day...thank you August and Lisa...i dont know what i would have done without them!)

(Evocal-love their wooden displays!)

(last but not least: Marge getting her photo at Bonnin Designs pet photo booth)

see you soon in Long Beach on JUNE 27th!!!!

Aww, Marge. What an attention hound! Thanks for the shout out Delilah. My jaw is still dropped from seeing Kelso's little file drawers made of FELT! Amazing. Loved being a vendor and a part of this wonderful event. Thanks again. Shari
