This year’s Flower and Garden Show was an absolute success, and I expect we will be seeing a lot of new carvers at our symposia, and more viewers at our art walk. We sold 8 sculptures and there were a number of commissions which were passed on to the relevant carvers in our group. Some of you might be hearing from strangers.
Several people invited members of our crew, like Nancy Green, to be in local shows. I would like to thank all the people that assisted in the setup, manning of the booths, and take down. We had about 20 of you wonderful folks helping with the work.
I am not allowed to do the booth next year, as my husband is kinda annoyed at the lack of help that I got gathering everything as well as his having to build stuff, which took him away from his job. Part of the fault is mine because I have this thing about not wanting to bother anyone. When I asked people to help this year after he got mad at me, they were more than willing to lend a hand. My husband has tirelessly worked on our booth for many years. He keeps saying that he won’t help and then he does anyway, without complaining. So I am going to take a year off, but I hope that whoever runs the booth will allow me to man it daily, as I am finding that I am good at selling the group and the sculptures. I just love doing it. The people that you meet are just wonderful and fun to talk to.
