Truckee Labor Day Art & Craft Show

I'll be in Truckee this Labor Day Weekend on Saturday and Sunday doing the first Labor Day Arts & Craft show there. I expect it to be buzzing with tourists, and people going to the mountains for the last of summer fun. The show is on the end of town by the Truckee Hotel, and the side street there is blocked off for the show. I can't believe summer is over. WHEW.

How I Learn

The learning process is amazing to me. What do we know, how do we know it, and when does it become actual knowledge, as opposed to ideas we are only aware of? I am sure there are more important philosophical applications to this, but I happened upon this discovery when I changed my hairstyle and my earring style had to change too. I have been selling earrings now for 11 years, but until my own hair changed did I really GET IT that women need a range of earring styles and lengths for many many reasons, and the main reason is not just personal taste. So until I experienced this for myself, the idea I was aware of wasn't really knowledge. Get it? Maybe this is why we really can't learn from other people's mistakes. Sigh. Anyhow, I have been working on some new earrings lately. I made the long long pair you see in the photo a while back, and found that I really enjoyed wearing them. I had some technical issues to work out (sodering with rubber) and now I have a few pairs to sell. I morphed the long pair into several shorter designs
as well.

Truckee Last Weekend....Truckee NEXT Weekend

What is today? That is the question! This is the third Friday night since May 18th that I am home. What a run of shows! And I will be back up in Truckee next weekend, August 11 & 12, and hopefully I will have the same location in front of the Truckee Hotel.

About Me

My photo
Calaveras County, California, United States
I love the stones and pearls, and the magic that happens when I combine them, and then again combined with the glass I make. You can find me at an Art show somewhere in Northern California most weekends during the spring and summer. Email me at if you like.
