BJ visits

Yesterday we drove to Grand Junction to pick up BJ. He rode the train from Omaha. We spent the night in Delta and drove on in to Crested Butte today. Stopped in Paonia to visit Ed and Roger Rozman. We got to CB in time to meet my folks at the Brick Oven for Pizza. Pine Haven brought a group of their residents to the Brick for an outing. It was great fun for all. So nice to see Mom and Dad out and about.

Salida Riverside Art Festival

I had a booth in the Salida Riverside Art Festival the weekend of August 14 &15. It was fun to see  friends and family. Met lots of the other vendors. My sister, Linda, came along and she was a great help. We drove the black truck over Monarch loaded up with the tables, shelves, tent and inventory. Got set up easily and had time Friday evening to sit by the river and watch some folks practicing kayaking. The Festival was on Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday we got packed up in record time with the help of Dan Peacock. On the way home stopped by Pine Haven in Gunnison and visited our folks.

Ridgway Rendezvous Arts Festival

Just got back from the Ridgway Rendezvous. What a fun art festival they put on over there! It was in the town park on the grass. Booths were set up in clusters of four so each vendor had a corner booth. I liked the format. It was also nice to be on the grass. We had rain on Saturday, it began at about 3pm and rained the rest of the afternoon. However, we stayed dry under cover of the tent. Sunday it was sunny all day. My husband, Richard, and sister, Linda, were terrific helpers. The bulk of our sales occurred on Saturday. The music throughout the event was great. I met other vendors who do the art fair circuit. Fun to talk to them about their experiences. Met some fellow potters and got reaquainted with others. Nice to see some familiar faces and meet new people.

On the way home from Ridgway yesterday we stopped at the Creamery Art Center in Hotchkiss and I picked up my work from the "Comin' Round the Mountain" show that we had there.

All went well over the weekend. Had a great time at the CB Arts Festival. My booth display stayed up during the downpoor on Saturday with no damage. YEA! Sunday was a nicer day. Spent all day on both Monday and Tuesday in the studio getting more inventory painted for this weekend in Ridgway.
