Hello Bloggers! Wow! Where did a whole month go? I notice my last post to the blog has been March 30. I know I have been busy, so I thought I would take a few minutes to recap what I have been up to. What a whirlwind of a month! I have so many folks to thank. First and foremost.... big hugs to Julia StrayDreams, for her dutiful update of the blog under the Secret Sister updates. Without her, I would be lost! I also want to thank Sheri- pinkij- for her secretarial support. Fantastic job to both for keeping all the box landings, and associated videos up to date. So, I was so fortunate to teach a class for Lindy Stamp Gang this month, down in Great Mills Maryland, at Cecil's Old Mill, at the Scrapbook Nook! We had a turn out of 9 great ladies who sprayed, and got all inky, and are Lindy's girls for life! I have to say a special THANK YOU!!! to Martha, Seeking for Art, and Dar- Artedar for a great weekend, and the support. Martha was a lovely hostess, and took great care of us. I was so fortunate to meet Beth- who came down for my class, and the art love of the gifts shared was unbelieveable!!! Thank you so much ladies! I was thrilled to come and teach, and also to hang with all of you. I hope to see you all again in the fall. The store update is that our first month was going pretty well. I have been hitting the yard sales every weekend, and finding some treasures, which I have cleaned up and put in the shop. It is only a tiny space, but I have put in some of my art. A few canvases, some cards, and some journals, and past projects of boxes, and assemblage. I can't sell anything handmade to save my life.... It is early in the season, and I am not getting discouraged. In April, we celebrated my Mom's 70th birthday, and I am happy to say she is feeling a lot better, and has been working on lap quilts for the store. It is still a day to day process. Mom and Dad also celebrated 48 years of marriage in April as well. We had some nice meals and days out together as a family for each. I have been busy working a lot. I am hopeful to sneak out early this friday for my birthday. So if I have not been around, apologies... my cup runneth over with things to keep up these days. Hope you are having a wonderful Spring! Hugs,

  1. Hi Laurel, I have been wondering were you were. So glad I found this and read it. You are really in your busy season now. I hope all is going well and that you are selling cards left and right. If you run out I know were you can get plenty more. LOL
