A Huge Honor and some Huge News

Wood Burning by Marsha Waco Mammoth ornament

What does McLennan county have that no other county in Texas has? Mammoths of course. Not much of Christmas theme, but this ornament is representing our county on the Texas Christmas tree in Austin and I wanted it to be entirely unique. Fiona Bond, of Creative Waco is tasked every year with finding an artist willing to take on this great honor. I’ve never burned a Mammoth before, and never burned on this paper before, and never stuck paper inside a hand blown globe. So to say it was something of a challenge is an understatement.  Our wonderful State Representative Doc Anderson was at Cultivate 7Twelve for the hand off and a photo opp.

A true supporter of the Arts, Doc enjoyed the Waco historic Gildersleeve Photography now on exhibit at Cultivate 7twelve, through the end of the month.

My big news is an interview with Lindsay Liepman, anchor at KXXV 25, ABC news.

Marsha Wilson interview in progress with Lindsay Leipman of KXXV 25, ABC news 2018

She was insanely nice and easy to talk with, she really knows how to put her subjects at ease then ask a frighteningly deep question.  This interview will air on the first Monday night in December as a part of her “Texas Voices” segment.
