Day One






My first day of my first show went well. We were running a little later then I would have liked in setting up...there was someone else setting up in our space and we had to help them move over. Then my friend fellow artist Elizabeth Woodford showed up and got us organized. Thank you Elizabeth!! As the day progressed people asked how we were doing (I think the general consensus was that it was pretty slow) and my response was always "I dont know, this is my first show so I have nothing to compare it to!" At the end of the day adding up receipts I feel as though I did very well.


Plus I won another prize!!! I am still amazed. Two awards in one month.






I have to say I am quite a talker....and with my husband Greg there to help with the money end you never know where the conversations will go. When the judge presented me with the ribbon, she also commented "there always seems to be the most interesting conversations going on in this tent!" (At the time I think Greg was talking to a customer about his time in prison. That may be interesting, but even more so is the fact that Greg has never been incarcerated! Figure that one out!)

Now we are off for Day Two. Wish me (more!) luck!
