Together with family

Just spent three days visiting family, and we had a fun time! Here are six of my grandchildren together in one place...makes me happy!


Have they outgrown Grandma? Or are they standing on tiptoe?

Jeff won an auction at his kids' school and he got to throw out the first pitch at a Cincinnati Reds game on Thursday, June 14, with Scott catching! It was thrilling to see my sons up on the huge tv screen at the stadium! And it was Jeff's birthday, a great way to celebrate!

New "About" Pages for Etsy shops

A brooch I made, one of my all-time favorites

Etsy has just launched "About" pages for each shop owner! I've had a wonderful time putting mine together and looking at other people's. We can show our studios, the process of making our craft, our families, where we live, or more things we've made ... whatever we wish, and let people know more about us.

Here's the announcement on etsy.

Here's my About Page.

Hiking on a farm

Warren Wilson College Farm

Today we celebrated my husband's birthday with lunch at Mela in downtown Asheville (wonderful Indian buffet) with our friend Katherine and then picked up her little boy Zysean at daycare and went for a hike at the Warren Wilson College Farm. We had hiked about a half hour when we got caught in a huge rainstorm and got soaked. We went to their house for awhile and she lent us some dry clothes. All in all, a very enjoyable day!

These would be fun to climb out on.
