Sandra J. Atkins-Moran commented on marirosa hofmann's blog post How is ART IN BLOOM in McKinney texas
"I did the show (with paintings) a couple of years so maybe things have changed. Then, my take on the show was that traffic was sparse and those people, while nice folks, were mostly looking.  I live here and won't do the show."

Hi Marirosa,
Welcome to AFI! What a beautiful name you have...we're thrilled to have you joining us here and hope you'll take away some useful and inspiring information. I, too, am an animal lover but 3 dogs was the most I've ever had at one time...in any event, good for you and thanks.
