 What a day I had yesterday!!!! I was able to bead, and enjoy the day, then spend the evening with my family!! We went to the Jacksonville Fair…the kids and hubby to ride the rides, me to see how my entries did!!  Well, here are photos of both!! 
Yep, I won a first place!!!! They don’t have any a couple of them laying right, but….I did win a first place on the collection!!!  WHOOO HOOOOO!!
And then, I only got a couple of photos, but my son and hubby rode the ‘bumper cars’!!  This is my son listening to the instructions, realizing I am taking a photo and POSING for the photo!! 
And here he is on his favorite….the slide!!!

Today I get to tell you more about Ms. Rosemari Roast, owner/designer for Walk in the Woods, LLC.  Yesterday I told you about a little bit of her creativity, today I’ll tell you more!! When I asked her how she learned how to do her art, here is what she said…. I am self taught, however, “We’re inspired by others, and folks pass on certain skills to us, yet what we choose to do and make is our own signature of expression”.  I think that says it all!! 
I have to tell you that I often write ‘my version’ of  the interview, but again, Ms. Roast says it better than I can.  When I asked her about how she come to her craft, here is what she said;With respect to the herbal and Nature side of my activities, I feel as if I came into this life with a knowing. As a little girl I grew up with a pear tree, plum tree, apple tree, cherry tree and small grape arbor. I’m sure my dad taught me their names, but they felt like friends too. When I was a bit older I would wander wild places alone and nibble things, trustfully. I would bring home to my mother wild blueberries, blackberries, onion, turnip. She loved the turnip. I did not. To this day I remind folks that “you’ve gotta wonder what inspired me to dig the earth for that turnip root.”
I have already told you that I have several of her small journals, but now, I think I might have to get some of her beautiful bags too!!  Just look at these!!! And at her herbal creations!!!  Go look at her site, like her pages and then come back tomorrow and I’ll show off my favorites and tell you even more about this amazing artist!!!


Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
There is nothing like a dream to create the future. ~Victor Hugo
