My 2013 shows so far this year have been wonderful! I'm so glad I did the St.Cloud Lemonade Art Festival and plan on going back again next year for sure! The show celebrated it's 40th year anniversary and it was very well organized and HUGE! I was able to get out a walk around a bit and couldn't believe all of the beautiful hand made art that surrounded me.
The Elk River show was a new trial as well. It went well and I met several new artisans. I have also signed up for this show for the fall and will determine at that time if I will do the show again next year or not.
The Afton Show went well and Kate Sullivan and the Creative Chicks worked so hard to make it all happen! We were faced with storms, power outages and strong winds, but the two day show went on and so did we! I'm looking forward to doing the Afton Fall Fest and can't wait to get back together with more of our Creative Chicks Artisans!
The Anoka RiverFest show was another big success for me again this year! My daughter Kelly sold many of her jewlery necklace pieces and I sold many of my 8x10 creations. We met another new artisan "friend" and so many customers came out and my booth had constant traffic!
I submitted one on my photograph pieces again this year for the Mn State Fair Fine Arts Competition. It's my picture of a Red Dragonfly on a fall dried Bee Balm head. I should find out the week of July 15th if I've made it in or not. And if not, it's always an honor to be invited back each year to submit my artwork!
Hope you're all doing well and keep smelling the flowers! :)
