Happy Holidays…

Well, Christmas and New Years are almost here.  I am taking a week off.   Spending time with my husband and our 2 crazy Shelties “the Boys”.  I have been enjoying cooking, cat sitting and relaxing.

I have some new projects coming up for the New Year.  The Penn-Jersey Mid-Winter in Harrisburg, PA in March, as well as, a  Bridal Show the end of March in Colts Neck, NJ.   Need to make a couple of items for them.  Ideas are swirling in my head.  I am anxiously awaiting a new book on making handmade journals and books which I can’t wait to get.

Had fun making some new items for Christmas gifts.  Made a great eyeglass case, couple of small holiday clutch purses and holiday wine sacks.  Below are pics of what I have been up to, in addition, to the Holiday Cards that were a BIG HIT and sold a bunch of them.

I want to thank all my clients, family and friends for their support this past year.  I look forward to many more years and a want to wish all of you …….

Summer is finally here….

Well, it is finally warming up…was beginning to wonder if we were going to have any Summer.  Rose shows are over for the Summer.

For my rose friends who do not know, I made the decision to resign as President of JSRS.  I have been an officer in some capacity for many years, first as Recording Secretary, then as Vice President and then for the past 3.5 years as President.  Sometimes life throws you a curve that you do not see.  I am thankful that I had so much support.  I have made lots of friends and look forward to still spending time with my rose friends.

This will give me more time to smell the roses, focus on family, sewing, cooking, photography etc.    I have several projects in the works.  Wraps, bags, etc.  I believe in the old saying…”when one door closes another opens“….

I want to share a few shots I took at the Morris Arboretum on June 2nd at the Philadelphia Rose Show.  The Rose garden was beautiful that day.
