This post is a little bitter sweet because it is going to be the last post coming from Brunswick..because I am MOVING!!!!! My husband literally just said “get the crafting in now, because we are packing it all up today”. I am very excited to start a new chapter of my journey in Solon, and see what it brings.
I thought it was only fitting to talk about the first product that started this journey, my coasters. People love coasters… I love coasters, honestly what is there not to love? Coasters protect your fancy furniture, they are reasonably priced, and they can be customized. Today I was working on some new photo coasters for Sanity in Chagrin Falls. I have told you once, and I will tell you again, I LOVE SANITY. Isabel, the owner of Sanity is an absolutely incredible woman, with a fabulous sense of style, who seems to always have her finger on the pulse of what is the next best thing. I have a lot of my coasters, and wine charms at Sanity, and it was time to update them just in time for Blossom Time in Chagrin Falls.
Blossom Time is always on Memorial Day weekend in Chagrin Falls, and is pretty much the best time of year. The small town comes alive with full force with a carnival, 8K race, parades, and an ever famous hot air balloon race. Yes, all weekend you can look in the sky and see a hot air balloon flying by. No joke.
Growing up in Chagrin I now have an incredibly soft heart for hot air balloons. One of my favorite memories growing up on Falls rd was being able to hear the hot air being blown into the balloon, and me running into my yard to find the balloon, and it was always right over my house. One time a balloon landed in my neighbors lawn, it was so fun! So it was only natural that I make some coasters of the hot air balloons in Chagrin.
Before the race starts, they all have a “balloon glow” at the CFHS at sunset and show off the balloons, and it is one of the most beautiful times of the weekend. People come from all over the state to view it! Not only are the balloons famous that weekend, but so are the waterfalls. If you live in Cleveland, you have heard of the Chagrin Falls waterfalls. They are awesome and beautiful, and are the main life force of the town.
Many people come from out of town and are always looking for a piece of Chagrin Falls to take back with them. So now they can pick up a coaster or 2 or 4 from Sanity, and have a little piece of Chagrin Falls in their home.
