She's sooooo cute!!!
Oh yea, sorry, Beautiful, like Esther!

My Aunt Esther kidnapped me last Friday.
Now I'm not usually a spur-of-the-moment kind of a person, but we sure did have fun! I love how silly and fun my aunt is. We went to a craft fair in Odin, Minnesota. It was a pretty impressive show for a tiny town in the middle of nowhere.  She then taught me how to play train dominos and I beat her 10 out of 13 games - hmmm, I wonder if she'll ever play that with me again!!!!! I am so glad to have her living close enough that we can get together often. Looking forward to getting together the beginning of December
and also spending Christmas together. Last Christmas we had so much fun!

Luv U Aunt Esther!

Willmar Area Arts Council

As a new member of the Willmar Area Arts Council I am in charge of organizing and helping put up solo artist shows at the Willmar Education and Arts Center gallery located at 611 5th St SW in Willmar, Minnesota. I have enjoyed viewing the artists' work and also visiting with them and getting to know more about them and their work. I would encourage anyone interested in art to go these solo shows. You'll learn interesting stories about artists through their work.

This morning I went and helped take down our Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee! art show that featured artist, Sharon Schuetze. She works in watercolor, oil, acrylic, and pastels. I then helped Joanne Carmody Meierhofer set up her show for the month of October. Joanne works in pastel and watercolor.

We have a great website that features our local artists and events:  Willmar area Arts Council.
