This weekend was the Broad Ripple Art Fair – One of my very favorite shows in the state. It’s a hometown show which is always nice and it never fails to produce crowds of amazing, thoughtful, art-supporting people who come out to shop, visit, and ooh and ah over the work of the hundreds of artists who fill the Art Center grounds for the weekend. This years Broad Ripple was my best ever! So again, I love you Indy! Thank you for being amazing.
All weekend long my booth was full of incredible people who bought art, shared stories, and told me about the inspired and imaginative ways they planned on using their new Binding Bee journal, or what had filled their last one up. Journals were bought to give as graduation gifts, travel journals for home and abroad trips being taken this summer, sketchbooks, daily writers, dream journals and more. I even had one incredible family who bought a one-of-a-kind journal to use at their daughter’s memorial. She was an emerging artist last year at Broad Ripple and they wanted something very special to use at her service to encourage people to write memories and love into in her honor. I was so touched, so deeply touched. I love my job and moments like this weekend make me love it all the more.
