The Common Ground Fair was wonderful. We had perfect Fall Maine weather this weekend, though it's now raining as I write.
One of the vendors I always visit at the CGF is Toki Oshima of the wonderful TokiCards. Toki's cards are awesome--I am so inspired by her work depicting the joyful aspects of life in rural Maine. Here's one I bought-- a belated birthday design called "slow birthday" featuring a snail and turtle-- so clever!
All of Toki's cards are printed on recycled paper with soy-based inks. Fortunately for all you non-Mainers, she now has a website: Tokicards.com
Speaking of cards, I got this nifty chicken cards from Young And With It Industries in my Sampler.
Lastly, for your snail mail pleasure, there are wonderful cards at blissen.com.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention that many of the cards on my site make great holiday cards, so think about stocking up. Sadly, I'll have to raise the card prices a bit in October, so I suggest stocking up now if you have a chance.
