Following in the footsteps of other garden artisans we've talked to, we participated in our first Lawn and Garden show this past weekend. The crowds were great! Obviously everyone is sick of winter and anxiously planning for Spring. There were only a handful of artisan vendors as most of the booths were commercial establishments. We did OK and met a lot of wonderful people. We were also approached by an artisan/store owner so now our items can be purchased in Abilene, TX! Check out www.txbutterflies.com for some really nice handcrafted butterflies!
The local newspaper had an article on my acceptance as a Best of Missouri Hands Juried Artist. You can read it and see a picture of my mug at http://www.westsidestar.net/articles/2008/02/17/westside_news/24.txt
