Incredibly - incredible show this weekend.

What a great show we had! It was incredible! It exceeded our expectations. We had such a great mix of returning customers and people who had never seen or purchased our work. I sold so many of my favorites (but i think they all have good homes). John sold my favorite piece as well - but also to a great home! AND - We felt so loved. We had so many friends stop by to show us they care! Mandy started it out with a pre-show the night before. Then we had (left to right) The Strahls, The Hansens, Lynne & Damon, Paul, Tom & Liz, superheros from buntport!! (jessica, matt and rhaetia!), The Ooms family, The Mead family, Janee and adorable kids and then the Ryan family. ((and not pictured, Scott and John, The Rivers, The Trautmans, The Larsons and The Giesens -happy anniversary))

OOH, the Ryan family. To whom i am forever indebted! I do not take favors easily, but Karen and Jason were total lifesavers on sunday. They stopped by in the thick of a huge melt down! Ryan had gotten a pine needle in her foot and was screaming as if she needed an ambulance - which sent Desi (who lived on the corner who i had met once before) to go get tweezers and a band-aid and while all that was happening - i got a bloody nose. Moments later, after only 2 hours in our tent with us - our kids were walking off with the Ryans to go play with the slip and slide. Special Thanks to my mom who watched the girls all day saturday, Scott who alwayshelps a ton, Paul for shooting my work - and thanks for lunch saturday and The Ryan family who helped out so much - - and on fathers day of all days.

Hi there! Just found your blog after seeing you visited my flickr account. I love your work, and I love to see how you arranged it for sale - little shapes comprising bigger ones just gets me.

I'm interested to know what those panels are and how you mounted them...did you have a problem with the wind? I've done a few shows here and am still experimenting with a flexible way to show my little pieces that doesn't turn my EX-up into a sailboat!
