Circumstances have changed, thus...my show schedule has changed a bit. You won't find me at the CSN Fall Fun Fest this coming weekend. However, I do encourage you to head out there and attend. There will be lots of crafts from many local artists, along with concerts, carnival and more. There will be trick or treating on Saturday afternoon as well. It all takes place on the CSN campus at Charleston and Torrey Pines.

Last weekend Timm and I drove to Reno to attend the McQueen HS Craft Faire. It's a great show plus we get to see and visit with his brother and family while there. It's just a great time all around. Friday is a really long day, but we drove almost half of the distance in the dark. It seems to go faster in the dark, maybe because you can't see landmarks. Set up was easier this year and I was actually finished before the show opened. Friday night sales were great. Shoppers pay $10 on Friday evening...and the best part...no strollers or children! I think I would shop on Friday as well. I missed seeing a couple of friends that night. One had a family emergency, another came on Saturday. Timm had never been there before and was amazed at how these gals shopped. The whole weekend was good. Sales were up from last year, the weather was pleasant, and customers were happy. We tore down in record time thanks to Timm and the JROTC. I always give them a genorous donation for their efforts. Once again, the volunteer staff put on a wonderful event!

Yup, that's right...the next stop on the Twiddlebugz tour 2010 will be in Reno at McQueen High School October 15-17. We leave about 3:30am from Las Vegas and head out across the great, empty vastness known as the Nevada desert...it is a long uneventful drive with just a few towns to break up the view that never seems to change. We'll hit Tonopah about sunrise and reach Reno in time for lunch. After that, we'll set up at 1pm, the show opens at 5pm on Friday and runs through Sunday afternoon. Timm is going with me this year. This is a huge step for him and I'm glad he's coming. I just hope he survives the trip. He is bringing the propane smoker and ribs to cook for his brother's family while we're there. He's looking forward to spending time with his brother, that's for sure. Come out to see me and lots of other creative and talented crafters at this event.
