Dad~ spent many hours helping me heat press images onto t-shirts and other things, moved furniture out of my studio, helped put up my sign, spent all day at the art show and blew up 90 helium balloons.
Mom~ made price tags, cut out price tags, inspired me, cleaned my studio, helped give it finishing touches, packaged note cards, made five dozen cookies and 200 mini muffins, relieved me of home chores during the week leading up to the show and helped me figure out what to wear.
Nathaniel (13-year-old brother)~ blew and weeded around my studio, put together most of my sign, was cheerful company while I made doll after doll and ate many of my Tootsie rolls.
Asher (6-year-old brother)~ a friend who kept me company. He worked on his sheep while I worked on other cornhusk things. He tried to help package note cards.
Autumn (4-year-old sister)~ understood that I couldn't really play with her while I was getting ready for the show but was kind to me through it all.
Eli (2-year-old brother)~ encouraged me to pick up my stuff when I was done with it and was always happy and energetic.
I thank God for the family he placed me in. All of us would help any of us with our dreams. Thank you, family for everything!
