Here's a small gallery of pictures from the festival- it was held downtown Corpus Christi on the Bayfront. We had gorgeous weather the first day and started off a little scary looking on Sun, but eventually the sun came out and it turned out to be another wonderful day.
I didn't get to leave my booth often, but did try to manage to get off some 'favorite picks' by other artist.
Special Thanks to my Husband, my son, Will- pictured below, for being my helper all weekend, and Carl and Carol Willis.

I am currently working on a one of a kind Oyster Vase. It is slow, as in order to continue, I have to wait a day for each side (its 4 sided) to dry. Once I get the four sides down, I will then work on filling in the areas between shells. It will be a grand piece- with shades of natural oysters- black, grey, and white.
I have completed 3 new projects- one shown below- which is the driftwood heart frame. I have not been able to list these as available as of yet. My day gets filled with Life and its ups and downs throughout the day, and I continue to struggle everyday with my personal illness. Sometimes I feel I have to take more 'breaks' than I do work just to make it through an entire day and not be in bed in pain by 7pm.
I have a gazillion ideas floating around in my head at all times of things I want to try. I love working with natural found objects, but I certainly have some hidden sides of my art that haven't even been put forward. I know I can accomplish all the ideas at some point, but a bit of impatience sets in the process.
I am also in process of opening a new venue online to buy direct. I love Etsy, but some times I am too easily distracted by all it offers and the social portion of it. Over the next couple months of art shows and creating, I may need to step back from Etsy and focus on my own site, and spending more time creating.
