For too long this wee Jack has been resting on the corner of my desk, neglected yet cheery smile hopeful that one day soon I will sit down in my creaky chair and bring him to life. 

A thousand reasons have made it easy for me to pass on by without guilt but not so easy to silence that ever-present yearning to create. How lucky am I to have the opportunity to begin again everyday.

No mention of you at Halloween and Vine or American Folkart Fedtival this year... Are you skipping both? Will you be selling on-line?

You are correct, due to scheduling conflicts I will not be participating in any of the Fall shows in 2015. I will post a few pieces in my Etsy shop beginning in August. Make sure to message me your email address if you'd like to receive notification of upcoming sale events. Many thanks!
