Craft Show

Mosaic gourd

Just completed this mosaic gourd for the  monthly craft show in the park. . . . next to the last show and I am ready for a break.  Having been the treasurer for the club this year has really been an experience.  Not that I am unfamiliar with “finances” but it has actually been a little more work and taken more time than I thought it would have taken.  Anyway, the next to the last show is this weekend and I am ready for a break and a summer of building my inventory too.  I just had so much going on this year my inventory was difficult to replenish. I also hope to get my Etsy shop back up and running for fall and winter, especially the holiday season.  I do have so many ideas for new gourd designs and Christmas ornament designs too.  So I am ready for uninterrupted creative time this summer.

A photo of my two babies!  Max, is the yellow lab and Penny, a mixed breed that was abandoned so we adopted her, and they both keep me company all day long.   They are at my side as I write this post  . ..  so nice to be loved!!



2011 – and . . .

gosh it is already March and I have not posted anything! Well, I have been up to my ears in “stuff” to do.  Unfortunately all work related and of course, taxes – ugh.  But completed most of it and now I have some “me” time and that means “art time”.

I have been busy working on some gourds and just came back from the gourd show in East Palatka.  What a wonderful show.  It seemed a bit smaller but the vendors were all terrific.  I  purchased more gourds and lots of supplies. Some of my favorite gourd farmers were there – Tom from Mississippi, Ghost Creek Gourds and Pumpkin Hollow.  I am working up some new designs and when fall comes around I should be ready for the shows.

Here are a few photos taken last week when we had some very foggy mornings but lots of bird activity on the river.  This is the first spoonbill I have seen on the shoreline since Hurricane Francis & Jean.
