Minnesota State Fair 2017

Stop in 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.  Find us again this year at the North wall of the Creative Activities Annex.  The Education Building is on the other side, and Creative Activities Bldg. is just south of us.  New this year I have My Little Book of Bald Eagles, my children’s picture book which I will be signing every day of the Fair along with my other 3 picture books.  In addition, I will have new mini prints, new matted prints, new acrylic paintings and paintings with Minnesota/nature themes.   Our beautiful State!
This just in:  Erling is featured in the Blue Ribbon Bargain Book this year with a wonderful jewelry creation — a wire wrapped sterling silver or 14K gold fill stone (or shell) ring (regular $17.95) at an unbelievable price for one with the coupon of $5.95!  The coupon book will more than pay for itself just on this one purchase alone!  Stop by and say hello, and see what sparks your interest.  We love seeing you!
