One Year Later – Cutting Boards

From our very first craft fair last year, back to the one that started it all.

The 1st annual Legion Holiday Craft Fair in our pretty little town.

1st Craft Fair – Table Layout

1st Display at The Ascutney Market

Many adventures along the way, all fun and learning experiences.

Our 1st Beyond the Unicorn Holiday Craft Fair

This year at the Beyond the Unicorn Craft Fair we’ll have a few more design options, more table staging ideas and we’ll also be in the GYM…..Woo Hoo!!

Jury Meeting at The Vermont Hand Crafters – Fingers crossed!
We are IN!!

Gearing up for the Springtime when the Farmer’s Markets begin – we joined a few and again, learned a lot.  1st of all, you have to pay to get a spot in any of the fairs and/or markets. So, you need to decide which ones are a good fit and which ones to try again – or not.

Happy with our 1st Anniversary – Thank you friends for your advice, support and suggestions. You all gave us the confidence we needed. Cheers to the cutting board!!

Leaves are Falling

As the leaves are falling and the sun is shinning, it’s a beautiful day in historic Windsor, VT. The artisan (Buddy) is outside with yard work and the marketing directer,(that would be Sandy) is inside. We each do what we can!

Gearing up for the local holiday craft fairs and having fun staging our tables. Our friend little Autumn Breezes by Charming Tails is helping out.

The character in the walnut wood continues to amaze me. 

Walnut Cheese Board – Small

Each piece as beautiful, if not even more beautiful as the last. Although, the cherry – maple combos continue to please. So much so, we have decided to make both cherry – maple and maple – cherry…can you guess what the difference will be?

Cherry – Maple Cheese Board – Small

Notorious rustic cherry, as it continues to age and deepen in color, a hit in all designs.

Rustic Cherry Cheese Board – Small

Mixed oak gives a heavier grain and adds weight.  Perhaps more masculine? What do you think?

Mixed Oak Cheese Board – Small

Our 1st all maple board, light and simple.  I think it’s too plain, but let’s say you are using it to stage a product – a product with color.  This style might be perfect, as not to take away from your item? 

Maple Cheese Board – Small

Which wood species would you choose for your very own handmade wooden cutting board?  If you could only choose one?

Walnut – Maple Cutting Board – Medium
(Also available in Maple – Walnut)

Thank you for stopping by our blog, comments are welcome, as is advice!!

Autumn Moon Festival 2014

The 1st Autumn Moon Fest takes over where the Moon Dance left off and the tradition continues in Historic Windsor, Vermont. Wonderful celebration of our pretty little town with foliage, entertainment for all ages, food and shopping!

Main Street from Depot to River was shut down as well as State Street up to the Common. All I have to say is well done to all involved in organizing this event!
There was so much more going on that we (as a vendor) couldn’t see, from theater performances, jazz band and more. Green and Gold Photography shared a BUNCH of great pics, be sure to take a look at their Facebook!

Hula Hoops on Fire? Of Course!

Did you get a t-shirt? We sure did and are proud to have been mentioned!
From Tami’s Head Lines to Windsor Wine and Spirits, and beyond, this event received quite the support, which is refreshing.
Check out these earrings Dianne at Arabella Gallery created, just for the Moon Fest! The talent our town offers is impressive. Nice Dianne!
