This was my first and only cookie that I've earned in performance. It was my first NAN and the allure of a gold performance cookie keeps me wanting to go back again and again! I just learned that NAN cards from 2011-2012 have been extended, so I might need to see if a trip to Harrisburg might be a possibility after all. (Of course, work and family plans will probably interfere regardless :D).

Performance Showing

Jen's recent post on her blog about performance showing got me excited to think about an upcoming performance show in April. It has been more than 2 years since I have made it to a live show. I know this because I have no current NAN cards, which was a very disappointing realization since NAN will be within a day's drive this year! And sadly, my new career has kept me from getting to any of the shows in my new region, so I am not making plans to go to Harrisburg.

I enjoy performance showing as much as any other aspect of the hobby. I love making props and collecting beautiful works of tack art. Maybe I can find the time to show you some of my prop projects and tack collection one of these days... and maybe I'll make it to that performance show in a couple months with some new projects to show...
