Rained Out

We are home from the big show.

As you can see from this angry cloud we got rained out for the first two days. :( It was really wet and not much fun. The last day was gorgeous though and I made enough to cover my expenses plus a little profit so all was not lost.

We met some wonderful folks from all over the world and had a great time meeting fellow artists and talking shop with them. I am full of new ideas and ready to get back to my worktable.

Taking My Show on the Road...

We made it through the great freeze of NM and are getting back to normal around here. Water pipes have unfroze and our heat is back on. The kids are finally back to school.

Now I am scrambling to get ready to go on the road. I am vending at the Palm Springs Arts Festival on Feb 18th - 20th in sunny California.

Even though I have been doing shows for 16 yrs. this is my first big "Arts Festival". I am a little nervous but excited as well. I have been working hard and have some fun new works to sell. 

 If you are in the area here is the link with more information. Stop by and say hi. I would love to see some friendly faces.

We moved here 1 yr ago and they told us we would love it because it does not snow here. Comming from Utah where it snows a lot we thought great, we won't miss the cold.

Here we are.... Day two without heat and now no water. The lines are frozen because they have shut off the gas.

We kept warm last night all wrapped up in electric blankets. Thank goodness the power is still on. I drove all over town and not an electric heater to be found.

The bad part is that we cannot leave. They are going house to house to turn your gas back on and if you are not gas. ??????!!!!!!!!!

Trying to be brave but it is COLD!!!  minus  - 12 last night. My kids are troopers and we are all ok but it does not look like we will heat again tonight. A little frustrated that we cannot leave the house. Folks in the middle of town have heat and water so I do not know why only some of us are affected.  Well...this is the part of life that is the adventure.  I am missing Utah right now. At least they were equipped to deal with the freeze.
