We're not flooded - thankfully!

I'm sure you've seen the images of the flooding in Philadelphia and I just wanted to let you all know that so far we're ok. Thankfully, we're up on a ridge and not near the Delaware or Schuylkill rivers. Manayunk, where we were for the art & craft show last weekend, is flooded and hopefully we won't be getting more rain in the future.

Wet Weekend

We spent the weekend getting rained on at the Manayunk Art and Craft Festival. We had fun, but could have done without all the rain! Two of my new PA friends were also selling and didn't have a waterproof tent - ugh!. Kathy and Annette, I hope you've dried out!!

I'm now turning my attention to making beads for the ISGB Gathering, which will take me to Kansas City, MO in July.

This weekend we're going to head up to NY to see Aaron's parents and to go to a performance at the new Woodstock performance arts center. I'll be sure to take the camera!

I'm so excited! Yesterday we had the electrician and driveway guru out to dig up our drive in order to lay a new electrical conduit between the house and the garage. This was the first step to having power in my studio! You'll see the trench, patch, and new electrical panel. It was quite a sight.

New Postcard

I wanted to share an image with you that I'm using for my 2006 postcards. My brother took the photo for me ( and I can't wait to get the cards next week. I'm sending 400 to the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) so they can be included in their postcard collection, which is a fundraiser for the organization.

Great time had by all!

I had a safe trip back to Ohio this weekend for the show. The weather was wonderful, even a bit chilly! I was able to stay with a couple of good friends, which of course meant I stayed up too late, but we just had so much to talk about! I took a couple of quick shots of the show and my booth.

While I was gone Aaron put primer on the studio walls!! So we're close to being able to paint and the electrician is planning on coming Thursday so I just might be able to move into the studio by July 1 after all!

I'll keep taking pictures so I can show you the before and after images!

Headed back to Ohio!

Howdy Everyone,

Again, I find myself apologizing for not writing in a very long time. I have a really good excuse, but you'll have to come see me at the Chagrin Falls Show this weekend in Ohio to find out what it is. If you can't make the show you can email me and I'll tell you, I'm just not ready to tell the world yet:).

If you need directions or times of the show just go to my "shows" link from the main page of my web site.

I'll give you a more detailed update after the show!
