living in a tent during an art show weekend is a lot of fun. the cool things involve getting to the event before the thousands of people show up, talking to artist pals that we only get to see a few times a year, seeing all of the amazing and inspiring art that artists from across the country create, and smelling the kettle corn get going. guilty pleasures might include watching occasional fights break out (usually among artist couples trying to set up a new tent--funnynotfunny) and gorging on kettle corn.

the bad thing about art shows is the occasional must use porta potties. ugh. ugh. ugh. also, sometimes the hours are long, but really the shows are one of the best times of the year. hanging out with my mom all day is such a treat. also, talking about the things we work so hard to make beautiful is fun. and then seeing our customers come by (new and the loving repeats!) is so rewarding!
