I just realized I never shared pictures with you from Art in the Park. It was a good show for us again. We love the spot we have, and have been fortunate to have the same spot for the last 5 years. This year we rented tents instead of setting up our own...good move. We sold out of everything tall/large or on a post. Enjoy the pictures and please continue to shop with us, we really appreciate it.
I just have to say I am so thankful we drove up on Thursday instead of my standard 3:30am Friday departure time. There were several delays due to road construction that put us about 2 hours behind on the way up there. It was much less stressful Friday during set up as well...which I attribute to a good night's sleep.
The crowds lined up early for Friday night. The best part...no children or strollers. One of my best and most loyal customers, Heidi and her daughter arrived at 4pm for the 5:30 opening just so they could be first in line.
Here are a few pictures of my booth to share. It's never quite as polished as I'd like it to be since there is only 4 hours to unload and set up in the courtyard. But it looked okay. By Saturday afternoon we were removing the center display pieces and re-arranging trying to make it look full again. Fall/Halloween were the best sellers for me.
I enjoyed the time I spent with my best friend, Diane and time shared with my brother-in-law, John and his wife, Rhonda. It's nice to come back to a home instead of a hotel.
Thanks to the ROTC and other students for helping unload, tear down, and load the trailer. It makes driving home 8 hours possible that night. We arrived home at 2am. I'm looking forward to next year already.
It's that time of year again. I am once again participating in the McQueen Craft Faire in Reno, NV this weekend. It's a great show! I love being in the cooler weather, visiting my hubby's brother and family, and supporting the Booster Club for McQueen High School. Look for me there, I'll be in the courtyard.
This time of year I wish I lived where there were real seasons. I love how leaves change. I try to head to Cedar Mtn in southern Utah but I'm pretty sure I missed it this year with the cold fron thtat came through last week. A bit of fall eye candy will have to suffice.
Twentynine years ago today my high school sweetheart and I got married in the church I grew up attending...where my parents still worship today. I met Timm when I was 15, he was coaching an LDS softball team at the park across the street from my home with one of his friends. He had to wait until I turned 16 to go out on a date, and asked me to marry him the day I graduated high school...sprained ankle, crutches and all. Fifteen months later we got married...around all the groomsmen hunting trips.
I am so thankful this man in my life. He completes me. We've had our challenges like everyone else. We've been through thick and thin. In all that time, we've raised two wonderful boys, practically felt like we raised a hundred more through the Boy Scout program, camped and traveled, worked and played.
Happy Anniversary Timm...I love you more than life itself.
