I am a people person. I love to chat with people and learn all about them. Furthermore, I love to find out how things work and I love to put people and things in touch to make them work thus why I like teaching and designing. But most of all, I am a family person.

Long Time No See

Hey all,

Sorry I haven't blogged in quite a while. Been creating for the holiday season and tending to family activities and work. My youngest daughter had a drama competition this weekend. While she was there I cleverly snuck in a trip to our local Harvest Fest. I had heard it wasn't very good last year. I think I went the year before that and was disappointed at the lack of creativity. I know I was disappointed at this year's church craft show. So I vacillated between going or not and much to my surprise this year the Harvest Fest was pretty good. I found one lady who makes these sun hats out of honeycomb paper. She calls them yaya hats. Very unique. Check out www.yayahats.com. Then I found a photographer who takes black and white photos of architecture and things in nature that look like alphabet letters and spells out words with the pictures. For instance , the letter "R" may be a picture of the side of a bench whose metal handle and leg resemble the shape of an "R". An "S" might be a picture of an "s" hook, etc. Very cool. Check out Jasen Williams' work at Victory Illustrated Co. on Facebook. I was also happy to see lots of people buying handmade items. Sold two items myself from my shop this week, too.

Kudos to my daughter and her friend. They did great on their skit at the competition. I was very proud of them plus I got to go back and watch some of their piers perform. They were all so very talented. Crafts and a show.... I had to run around a lot to get her to her competition but it was a very relaxing weekend because I really enjoyed reveling in all the creativity out there.

Will type again soon I hope. More new stuff should be going up in my shop this week. Meanwhile check out Etsy Black Friday on Facebook. Lots of great artists to buy from for the holiday season including me : ). Let me know what you think of these links.
