This weekend heralds in the second installment of the Ballston Arts & Crafts Market! However, this is the first time this season I will be there. As it is my fourth year, I am totally looking forward to it. I will again be sharing space with my partner in (art) crime, Stacy Rasuch of Love to Create. She is so in love with creating that she has a whole *new* line of photographs. If you missed her Q&A in May, check it out here. Come check those, and my new sun hats, out.
What: Ballston Arts & Crafts Market
Where: Welburn Square, Ballston, Arlington, VA
When: Saturday, June 13, 10am-4pm
See you there~Jen
Green Tip~ Bug Off, naturally

Try this tips to deter mosquitoes and other stinging things~
*Apply tea tree oil directly to skin. (Avoid getting it in your eyes!)
*Stay in the breeze, or create a slight breeze.
*Eat raw garlic. This makes you less appetizing (to the opposite sex too!)
*Wear earth tones to disguise yourself as nature, thus something a mosquito won't want. Blue is the worst, you make yourself look like an inviting flower.
*Move slowly. Sweat attracts them.
*Use a smudge pot to naturally ward them off.
