Vacation Time

Tomorrow my husband and I follow our hearts to the Holy Land and Egypt. We are going with a group from Fargo (yes, Fargo of movie fame!) and will be seeing the sights and walking where Jesus walked...pretty amazing!

The final Art and Wine Walk of the season was Saturday. I did well - my best wine walk sales of the year so that was really fun. The Dakota Harvest Bakery has a mini-show of my clocks, felted wall hangings, weavings and tapestries up until Nov. 16. When I get home I'll have to get busy and get some new things made for the Holiday Show I'll be in on Nov. 15...it'll be a rush to get things made, dry and in and out of the kiln in 9 days! I seem to do well under some time pressure, but I won't go so far as to say I thrive on it.

I switched out some things at the Canad Inn gift shop this morning - they now have some reversible words, bison, mugs and teacups, necklaces, white dry erase boards, wine charms and 'keep it dry' coasters. I picked up the "God Bless USA" desk top flags and the birdhouses. There probably isn't' a big market for birdhouses in North Dakota in the winter!

We had two of our daughters home for the weekend, along with our two granddaughters, Taylor and Haley. It is always so quiet after they leave...luckily they leave behind some messes so I can be busy with straightening up and putting away - it takes my mind off the quiet for awhile!

Will blog again when we get home - unless I have time and access from abroad! Take care...

About Me

My photo
North Dakota, United States
Born and raised in Williston, North Dakota. Degrees in Occupational Therapy (never chose to work in the field) and Visual Arts. Married for 33 years to a super wonderful guy, three daughters - all three are talented, educated, contributing, beautiful members of our great big world. I am so proud of them...they are my best accomplishment to date! I love to make art and teach about it, too. An etsy friend recently shared this quote with me from St. Francis of Assisi: "He who works with his hands is a laborer, he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, he who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist." I think it is a wonderful statement!
