Snapshots From ParkArt

Another Canada Day has come and gone; and with it, another ParkArt. The annual arts fest, held in front of the library often draws in as many people as does the actual Canada Day celebrations. This year, the weather held up and the fifty plus different vendors seemed to be having a great time displaying their art for people.

I took just a few snapshots, so the lion's share of the artisans were not included. 

Here are just a few of MJ Independent's faves.

 Angie Arndt at  Country Angel Rustic Décor  has been making signs like these for over 20 years now. She designs her own stencils and comes up with some of the text you can read on her signs as well.
