Most Awesome Art Festival Ever!

Wow! This weekend Jeremy, Carley and I had the opportunity to go to one of the best Art Festivals ever. Well, I guess I was probably the most excited one.... I just dragged my sweet hubby and our baby girl along for the ride and tried my best to convince them that they were having just as much fun as I was. (Just kidding. Actually, it didn't take much convincing....it was a wonderful family outing and we all had such fun together.....there was even a really cool section of stuff just for kids). We got to see some of the finest art from around the country and visit with the artists personally. I actually met artists that I have seen on TV, artists whose work I've admired on-line and artists that I have even based lesson plans around in my classroom. So you can imagine, that for me, it was pretty darn cool. This Art Festival actually happens twice a year in Richardson but this is the first time I've had the chance to go to it. You can be sure it will be on my agenda from now on. In fact, how amazing would it be if I was able to someday be one of the artists at that festival.....keep dreamin' Jackie, maybe you'll get it together one of these days.

Well, here's the link if anyone wants to check out more about the "Cottonwood Art Festival".
