Thursday, my favorite class of the week, Alphabe-Thursday! Mrs. Matlock is a great teacher, and it's not too late to join in the fun. She has assigned the letter X this week. And I bet that after my V post, you all thought I was going to write about Xylophones. Wrong! This week, X stands for eXcited! I know, I know, but grant me some poetic license here :)
As you are reading this, we are making our last minute preparations for the Rockport Art Festival. This is a huge event, and more importantly, the first show we will be doing as business owners. DH has done art festivals for years, but always in the role of an employee.
Hopefully Alex won't put too much of a damper on things. If you are of a mind to do so, would you say a prayer for us?
When the company DH worked for closed in March, there were still some art festival and show commitments on the board. When we made the decision to start our own business, we agreed to honor those commitments that we could.
The Rockport Art Festival is an amazing show. It is a 2 day show held on the shores of Little Bay in Rockport, next to the Rockport Art Center. There are more than 120 exhibitors, showcasing everything from jewelry to photography, art glass to pottery, original paintings to woodcraft.
As we were accepted into the show under the old company, we will not be able to showcase as much of our original work as we would like, but we can display some. And it's a foot in the door for the future.
The best part of doing a show in Rockport? Getting to do this after being on your feet all day in 100+ degree heat.... hang out at Moondog's with a refreshing cold drink....
And then retiring back to the condo to do some major relaxing!
Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend. I will be late visiting your posts this week, as internet service where we are staying is hit or miss. And hopefully, we'll be too busy to do any computer surfing :) Don't forget to stop by Jenny's and see what everyone is coming up with for X. This should be an interesting class!
