Best Day Ever

Swan Lake Stables Open House

There’s something about hitting yourself repeatedly with a hammer…it feels so good when you stop.

After six weeks of running around getting canvasses, magnets, note cards and banners printed, the day finally arrived. My first show! There is a lot to be said for prior planning. We did a full staging of the tent the day before just to be sure we knew what we were doing. The set up at the show couldn’t have gone any easier.

The weather was absolutely perfect and the venue was wonderful. There were hay rides and pony rides, a petting farm and a craft area for the kids. Music and art and crafts, oh my!

At the end of the day, I had that Christmas/first day of summer vacation feeling in my stomach. That’s a sensation I haven’t felt since I was a kid. I felt (and will always feel) so thankful to my family and friends who encouraged me to do this. It is truly humbling.

Seeing old friends and making new friends

Now to plan and prepare for the next one and hopefully get some painting done too!
