Heartwood Rocking Horses

So Excited! Getting ready for the Big Crafty, my first big craft fair

Leave a comment

I have all day today to get all the last minute details figured out for my first big craft fair! Big Crafty! In downtown Asheville tomorrow, Sunday the 13th from 12-6. I really enjoyed seeing the Heartwood name in the list of vendors, with a link to my website! I’m going to be located somewhere right near the front doors to the Art Museum, outside on the patio. I’ll be so excited to put out my fabulous new business cards, designed by my amazing sister Rachel Hyde at Hyde Creative! I also used her designs for the sign I’ll hang on the table, and for the tags I created for each horse. Thanks so much Rach! Also very excited and relieved that my Paypal card reader arrived today at the last minute, so I can start swiping credit cards at the craft fair!  Visa MasterCard Discover AmExpress, I’m ready for you! I hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow, but have an alternate set-up prepared in case it does, so I’ll be out there! Check out these quick photos of my process (and look for our photo-bombing dog Butters).

I live and work in Asheville, NC. I've been learning to carve since 2012, and started my own rocking horse business in 2013. I've always loved drawing horses, and find those skills practiced as a teenager now come in handy as I carve each horse to life from chunks of wood. I love creating things that children can enjoy, move with, and learn from. I also love hiking through the hills of the Asheville area, swimming in the icy waterfalls, and hanging out with my husband and my dog.
