Krickett has been my right hand down here since 1996, my first year at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. I was on my own and I was in a little over my head with the energy of the whole experience. A wonderful artist named Gayla sent one of her helpers over to take care of me... and that started a relationship that carries on to this day. I didn't see much of my Krickett this year, due to the development of this little guy, but once you hold somebody like this in your arms, you realize that sometimes there are more important things than selling art . And lucky for me, there are people like Shannon out there to back me up. And Carolyn. and Charles. And Phil. And Lindsey.
Thank you all.
