i am exhausted, but just a quick post to say 10 x 10 went well. it was a really great time, a chance to catch up with lots of folks from south florida and i was very pleased with the installation of garden path. j and i headed out friday morning after the longest freaking thursday ever (4 am kiln shift, then a training at tampa health department, visit to my parents house to load up some materials and then packing the car to max capacity with our art work.), installed most of friday and saturday, showed from 6-10 pm and then woke up bright and early sunday to deinstall. it was hard work but it was worth it.
i was able to find a landscaping supply co. to graciously lend me the crushed shells, stepping stones and borders i needed for the garden. the owner and his wife came to the show and before they left they gifted me the materials they had loaned me. how cool are they? anyone in south florida needing landscaping supplies should definitely support AAA sod and supply on military trail between maleluca and lantana. they are like, totally my art sponsors.
unfortunately i don’t have a camera, and am too poor to buy one for the time being, so i will have to wait for pictures from kara. she had a photographer shoot the whole show which was so awesome of her.
here’s a little taste via my cell phone:
as you can imagine that crushed shell was a pain to clear up. i shoveled up a couple of containers of it and brought them out to the car. when i returned a had shoveled another 2 containers up, she then proceeded to help me clear up the rest, which we did in record time. s showed up and after giving us root beers, pitched in. we took the hand truck down the elevator and as we wheeled it to the parking lot, i couldn’t help but be struck with how awesome my life is right now and how many great folks are part of that. therefore i have to shout out some thanks to all my co-residents especially j for making the trip with me, a and s and all my sofla ladies and, you know, the universe for rocking so much. yeah!
