Hi there! Apologies for the radio silence. The Frosted Flamingo is alive and well, and I am writing to share some business and personal updates!
Summer of 2022 was a great success. We were proud to host crafts at the following events/locations: Bacon and Bourbon, Wine and Jazz, Bluegrass and Beer, Oktoberfest, The Dillon Farmer’s Market, Baby Bird Art at Wild and Free, Building Hope, Silverthorne First Friday; Frisco Fun Club, The National Repertory Orchestra Family Concert, Gravity Haus, Broken Compass, Town of Dillon, Town of Breckenridge, and Mountain Top. We also hosted a large number of private events (including family reunions, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and more).
Starting in September, I took a part-time teaching job at Breckenridge Elementary and Upper Blue Elementary. I have been teaching Spanish to Kindergarten through 5th grade at both schools, and I am very grateful for the experience. While I will not be (classroom) teaching next year, it has been a pleasure to get to know more kids in Summit County, and I have been reminded that teachers are incredible superheroes. If you are reading this and you are a teacher, I cannot express enough gratitude for everything that you do. This year has reminded me that no one works harder than teachers!
This summer, you can find the Frosted Flamingo at the Keystone Festivals and Silverthorne First Fridays, and no matter where you live, you can order packaged kits (for all ages).
