Last weekend was an extremely busy one, for a very good reason. We had been preparing for the Birgufest 2013, drawing, making material, preparing candles and other things. It was the first time that we were participating in an event representing the blog, making this event a new mile stone for us.
We had plenty of people coming to see the stand, and also a variety of hand made things for sale ranging from hand stitched and hand illustrated journals, homemade jam, screen printed artist books and prints, and a variety of illustrated post cards. We had a variety of candles which really lit up the stand; these were purposely made for the event and really caught the attention of passers by.
Setting up was really fun, as we all enjoyed playing around with things and doing our best to present them in a creative manner. We brought several things which aided in the presentation, making the stand look like a little creative hub.
I have never been to Birgufest before, but this was a great experience and I hope it won’t be my last. We also hope that there will be plenty of similar events for our blog in the near future =)
