Show Set Up & Comment Bead Drawing!!!
This past weekend I did a show at Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua. I've done this show for 8 years and it remains to be among my favorites. The organization and friendly atmosphere of the staff is unbeatable. I took a few pictures to document what set up is like......you really don't get the full effect since the temperature was near 90 on Friday when we set up but you can see in Peter's happy face just how fun it really is!
First we had to check in as we drove onto the grounds. We got a packet of information, badgets, parking sign and an invitation to an artist party after the show on Saturday! Whoo, Hoooo....that was another new thing! After check in, we pulled up to our spot and cheerily began putting that puzzle of a tent together.
Really, I did help with things but I needed to document so picture taking was important too. After the tent and tables were set into place we could go home. Saturday I arrived bright and early to set up my display and put things in place.
I went to the top of the hill in front of the Mansion and took this picture of all the tents set up on Sunday morning. This show is extra special to me since Peter and I were married here 17 years ago....I have more pictures for tomorrow and more exciting news about the show!!
For the next week, anyone who leaves a comment here on my blog, I am entering their name into a bead drawing! Leave a comment each day and get entered into the drawing!!!
