Cottonwood Festival Coming Up and So Are The Hives...

We will be participating in the Cottonwood Festival next weekend, June 13, 14, and 15. Chris is taking his torch and will have a work table set up to do demos during the festival of working with the torch and glass to make lampwork beads. Also, a very talented glass blower, Art Ciccotti, will also be at the festival doing demos all weekend. There will also be other artists doing pottery demos, life size people paintings, the local belly dancing group will perform, live music and entertainment Friday evening and all day/evening on Saturday, and special events on Sunday for Father's Day. If you are in the area and would like to attend, you can find out more info here http://cottonwood-festival.org. We have been beading, and making beads like crazy this week, and I have the hives (and the blood shot eyes from late nights) to prove that the stress is starting to get to me! Chris had a phone call yesterday afternoon from the Hastings radio station "The Breeze" asking if they could interview him on the radio to tell about what we do. Pretty cool, huh! So since he is off Wednesday morning, before we leave for our 3 day Girl Scout trip, he will get interviewed about being an artist participating at Cottonwood. Did I mention a trip? Yes, we are insane. We are taking our GS troop Tuesday afternoon to Hebron, NE for an afternoon of Outdoor Education before returning home, and then leaving Wednesday afternoon to spend Wednesday evening, all day Thursday, and most of Friday at Platte River State Park and Mahoney State Park in the eastern part of Nebraska. Upon our return from our GS trip, we will proceed to Hastings to set up for the Cottonwood festival which will be starting about the same time we are getting there to set up! Great planning on our part, but we love our GS and they have worked for two years to earn this trip so it is worth a bit of insanity. We just have to get organized and packed for two events this weekend! If I am absent from my blogging next week~you now know why!
