To thank me Maria brought lunch, including her famous Swedish ginger snaps! O.M.G....yum!
Today, I'm taking the day off from working at Star's Beads and heading down to Alexandria, Virginia for Artfete (formerly ArtFest). This is a wonderful annual event given by The Art League School to celebrate the work of teachers and features teacher and student work. There is the annual Ceramics Sale (a personal favorite!), Jewelry Sale and for the first time this year, a fiber fashion show. Of course there is lots of yummy food and live music. This is also an opportunity for teachers to mingle with prospective students, show samples of class work and hopefully drum up enrollment.
Every year, I go down early. I shop for gifts at the Ceramics Sale and spend the afternoon helping with set up. I'm bringing lots of class samples hoping to entice people to take some of my classes.
I'm bringing my camera and this time hope to remember to use it!!!
