Can't wait until Tawas show 2013!

(Booth photos taken by my brother, Nathan Hepworth)

 Well, the weekend before last was the Tawas Waterfront Fine Art Show, and it went great!! This was my second year at that show and I certainly be going back for a third (and perhaps a fourth, and a fifth....).


The Tawas show is juried fine art show and is juried by category.  Last year, I took 1st Honourable Mention in the jewelry category, and this year I took ............................................................................... ........................................................................................................................ 1st Place in the jewelry category!


Another improvement from last year was the weather!

While the weather during the actual show last year was perfect, while we were packing up at the end we were racing to finish ahead of the incoming storm.  We had just finished putting everything in the truck and gotten in when the clouds let loose in torrential downpour.  We'd had to go a different route home, because we found that there were power-lines down across the road we needed to take (turned out that if we'd stayed at the park any longer we would have seen and F1 tornado going out across the lake!).

This year however, there were no such adventures.  The Lord blest us with two great days.  The forecast had said that there was a 70% chance of thunderstorms Saturday night and 40% chance of thunderstorms Sunday during the day.  Thankfully the Lord answered prayers and it was dry both day and night!  Saturday night apparently had some really high winds up in Tawas and 10 booths collapsed.  I feel bad for one lady who lost 2/3 of her pottery inventory when her booth collapsed and went flying into someone else's booth!  I really hope she had a great first day of the show, to offset some of the lost inventory.  Despite all the downed booths,  when we got to the show that second morning I found that my booth was completely untouched!

Praise the Lord for His protection!

And I can't wait until the 2013 Tawas Waterfront Fine Art Show!!
