Reflections of Summer
We've had an amazing summer and hope you have too. We still can't believe it's coming to an end. Even though we didn't have a lot of time for R&R we still were able to sneak in one great get away in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains and wet our flies.
We met some of the most talented artisans and designers at Design America - Texas. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our work beside such talent. Having our belts and jewelry in the fashion show was a great experience. The show opened the door to more possibilities.
We enjoyed ourselves at Brian Lebell's Old West Show and Auction. Whenever we had the chance we snuck away to see some of the other artisans and the antiques. If we hadn't been selling our work at the show we could have spent hours looking at all the incredible things. We didn't get to see the tin type of Billy the Kid that made national news, I'm sure it was locked away until the night of the auction.
Carbondale Mountain Festival was such a great show. The bands were good, the artisans were incredible, and the people were very art savvy. We couldn't have asked for a better show.
We have two more show scheduled this year Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies Fine Arts & Crafts Festival and Estes Park Elk Fest.

After an amazing day this is how God ended it for us.
