Stratoz and I are back from the 2010 Owen J. Roberts Friends of Arts Craft Show, and we had a great time! We met a lot of new folks, and quite a few pieces of mosaic and stained glass went to new homes, including my Nautilus Mandala. My new mosaic pendants were a hit, and I am working on making more. Stratoz’s penguin suncatcher went to a girl with a penguin theme in her bedroom. It’s a delight to see children intrigued by our work.
A friend came by and said she’d graduated from this very school 37 years ago, and this was her first time back, which was an interesting coincidence.
Danielle Ewing did a fabulous job of organizing the show and making the crafters feel welcomed, from the free coffee and donut cart each morning, to the booth sitters and wonderfully helpful student volunteers. Bause-Landry catering had homemade vegetable soup, and some incredible chocolate cake with caramel icing.
There was even a mosaic! The pillars by the cafeteria are covered in a tile rendition of the school mascot Wildcat paw prints.
