Penny and I went to the Bella Vista Craft fair and Spanker Creek craft fair yesterday and it was great but made me very tired. I saw my friend, Julene Baker in her booth with all her animal portraits and Nancy Dane with her civil war novels and made a few new friends too. Found the very best raw honey that I have ever tasted and also saw a few old friends. I still think it would make a great book just interviewing some of these vendors. I do a little interview when I find a vendor that has done something very creative: the people with the honey spreads from WI, http://www.wolfhoneyfarm.com/, the guy who makes rain barrels, the man from Texas with the fire starter, Elaine Sick from MO with Goats milk soap, Douglas Fulks a pen and ink artist from Missouri, Belinda Riley who does custom pet sculptures, a man who makes baskets etc, from pine needles, Essential oils http://www.debbiestwintowers.com/, man from Kansas who does lotions for human and dogs http://www.soyaessences.com/, a man who makes models of all the football stadiums around the US. Just so many interesting people. I think next year I will just go and do some interviews for a book. Could do it in the form of CD so their interesting voices can be heard. The Cajun, MI, WI, Texas, etc. vocal patterns were so interesting. Maybe I am weird but I enjoy learning about people from all over the US.
I listened to more interviews via the computer; Donna Gates the most knowledgeable nutrition person in the world. I am still listening to her downloads.
