Pit-Stained Art

Today was quiet all the way around, which was good.  We were kept busy at work by a funeral, (which also kept us out of trouble.)  The humidity was pretty bad today illustrated by pit-stains in a fresh shirt when anyone walked more than three steps.  Guess that’s one of the “cons” of working in a greenhouse.
There was a “Creative Arts Walk” in the downtown area tonight.  I grabbed the info at work and pondered going.  Come 6:00p.m. our on-again off-again severe weather seemed to be off-again, so I checked with Hubby to see if he could stay home with kidlet while I run in and check out a demo, and grab some necessities at the store. 
I got there and it was great!  Yeah, it was a bit crowded, but there was a Collage Artist, a couple Jewelry Makers, a Handbag Artist, an Acrylic Artist, a Glass Jewelry Maker and Wood Carvers all demonstrating their crafts.  It was so inspiring!  I milled around a bit, spending a lot of time in a favorite local shop making a mental B-Day & Christmas list.  I went and got popcorn and saw the lady that makes Handbags.  I picked her brain a bit and found out that she just started her trade in January!  All in all, it was a wonderful night! 
Tomorrow will bring the Farmer’s Market, and the park, and MAYBE some berry picking.  We’ll just have to see. 🙂

    I love local events like that. I went to one in a town we used to live in – it was awesome!
