The thaw has begun. Thank heaven. Jason and Kate and kids came early. Andre and Rose made it but got stuck for an hour in the drive way. Then David got his car stuck helping them. Jessica called and we had such a nice talk with the joyous laughter of the Verburg family game in the background. All made it home with bags of food and goodies. It was a wonderful day.
Gifts were to be from our heart and time given. Not to be money driven. Andre is giving me a manual for use of this instrument I am using. Jason gave me my new website email and his management of same. I don't even understand all it entails but it is exciting. We will meet soon and figure out how I want it to look.
The new year will find me trying to figure it all out and hopefully selling on line through my gallery. YEAH!

Well.... More than one snow day! That leaves me time to clean , eat and struggle with my computer.
I would like to thank the great artists I met this last weekend. I met Alex ie. cecily ink and Teri ie. 2Monkees, at the Christmas mkt. place. Teri I found out is in Theo's in the Pearl and Ihad read about cecily ink before. THey invited me to an artisan holiday sale. Long story .... what a lovely group of ladies!!! I had met Amy from Candywinkle ie. Goosey Press at Wilow Nest in the past. I have bought wholesale from Peggy ie. pflynn Designs. She has a gift with mixing scents and is in alot of great stores. There is Julie ie. Fuzzbags who makes the greatest felt bags and fun items. I could have spent hours just talking to them but they were there to sell and had a good crowd. After MY shopping we all promised to stay in touch and I look forward to that!

The Christmas market is this Saturday and Sunday. Herein Lake Oswego at the West End Building. Such a crazy holiday shopping season. I do look forward to meeting all the buyers and shoppers. For me this is the ending to Withies holiday preparations. Now I can begin to think of new ideas for the coming year. As usual I have so many projects I have been wanting to try.
