Festival of Trees 2014

I took my family to Festival of Trees last weekend and my 3-year-old son, Connor, was just as fascinated with all the sights and sounds as I'd hoped he would be (especially the train!). Next, year we might all have to bundle up and head downtown for the parade. While we were browsing through all the displays something caught my eye...MY display had already sold (all profits going to support Quad City Arts) and I won a ribbon for best 1st time designer in my category. What a fun creative experience this was! As a natural 'introvert', who often feels more comfortable behind my computer screen than anywhere else, it was good to put myself out there and be part of something bigger than my self.
