First Friday and SnowBall 2011

First Friday and SnowBall 2011

A beautiful night for First Friday in Downtown Portland!  The Christmas lights are up, the Christmas trees are in the squares.  Tonight they lit the Copper Beech Tree at the Portland Museum of Art.  And tonight was the 6th Annual SnowBall, an annual social event for Maine's creative community.

Downtown was just hoppin' tonight.  So pretty and fun.  Thought I'd share a handful of photos with you.

@ the Lincoln Street Center Rockland's first indie craft show...
just in time for the holiday.

This will not be the church craft fair that you went to last year...trying to decide between the wooden geese, doilies and the rayon yarn vests in red and green.

This will be the juried creatives fair of Rockland, where artists, artisans, craftspeople, and foodies can sell their wares to folks who are looking for the perfect gift for friends, family and coworkers.  Maybe for themselves, too! 

We will be located in the gym of the Lincoln Street Center, 24 Lincoln Street, with over 50 booths!
