[singlepic id=283 w=360h=300 float=left] This past weekend was the Edmonds Arts Festival, and I enjoyed a laid-back four days including great booth neighbors, visits with old friends and collectors, and re-familiarizing myself with the smell of the ocean (much needed). The weather mostly cooperated, and I made it through setup and tear down without ripping out the stitches I received after a freak utility knife accident during my preparations for travel. All in all not too bad, but I must say the possible highlight of the weekend was receiving the President's Award for my booth. Not only is the award an obvious honor, but possibly better still, it came with the single most ginormous ribbon I have ever laid eyes upon (see photo for scale---the Pro Panel wall is seven feet high). Now I need to figure out what to do with it... maybe someday when I have a bigger studio, I'll have room to display it. Not likely anytime soon, but a girl can dream, right?
