Winter Craft Fair 2013 and the Storm

lady like

Seriously, we had the weirdest weather at the beginning of December where I live in Southern Oregon.  The area got hit with one of the hardest snow storms in many years together with temperatures at 5 degrees at night and icy roads.  Our big local Christmas fair was cancelled on December 7th due to the severe weather and rescheduled to the following Saturday.  The problem on the next Saturday was ice covered roads.  The temperature rose a little bit but people were just afraid to drive even after two weeks and so was I! It was a pretty picture as you can see but dangerous.


Fortunately, my good friend Pat helped me out by taking us in her big 4-wheel drive truck on the 15 mile trek to the Show!  I never could have made it in my vehicle.  I so appreciate her!  Thanks Pat!  My friend Cheryl from Lady Lemaire and I have shared a booth for 3 years and it’s always fun!

The event was not well attended due to the weather but Pat, Cheryl and I had so much fun. There was plenty of laughter and people watching throughout the long day.  Thankful for all the customers who were willing to drive to the show in very bad road conditions.

As this year ends and a new one begins,  I want to thank all the new friends I’ve met on line through a Creatives group.  Their knowledge and support is immeasurable and I appreciate each one of them.
