Green art and lots of handmade love at the 5th art fair last weekend, December 10-11, 2011:
10A Alabama is a home in more ways than one, and the Art fair is always, always a great time to slow down and reconnect with kindred spirits:
The Alabama community has grown in heaps and bounds since our first fair in May 2011, but it remains to be one of the most positive and enriching creative groups I’ve come across.
Philosophers at work: Momok and Binggoy enjoying a game of chess (notice the upcycled keyboard pieces!)…
Mirrors for a cause, each one handcrafted by a participating seller:
Rock balancing fun:
10A Alabama was where I broke the ice and first put my works up for sale, and for all the handholding and support, I will always be grateful. This 5th Handmade Fair was extra special because I got to join as Montalut…
…and also as Estela, selling handmade pillows and clothes:
I wish I spent more time taking pictures, just to make sure the diversity of this group got represented properly! At the next fair, promise to do just that, but for now, here are more pictures, including some from the 4th Fair last October:

The 10A Alabama Handmade Art Fair is held every 2-3 months, with the next one most likely in February 2012.
