Last year's show season was another breathtaking ride. We did only 19 shows, had to miss two due to some illness on my part, and finished well in spite of it all. "Only 19 shows" is a lot of shows... I was honored to receive several more awards which always delights me, I must say! At a nice little show in Allen, TX - the jewelry award, the Metal, Glass and Clay show in Royal Oak, MI awarded me the jewelry ribbon, I was chosen for judging at the VA Beach Boardwalk Show no prize, but a big deal for me, award of excellence at the Red River Revel in Shreveport, LA, and then a biggie ~ an award of merit at the Great Gulf Coast Art Show in Pensacola, FL. The last show of the season was one of the two we had to miss in Covington, LA and it made me so sad, but I was in the hospital...wondering how wonderful it was! I'm totally back to normal now and thankful to God for my regained health.
Our show season is being kicked off March 23-24 in the charming town of Salado, TX just north of Austin. I'll get some turquoise pieces ready for them! Here's the rest:
