New York

In the past few months I have been sparse in my blogging. It is so hard to do everything I want to do in the short amount of time that I have to do it. I really miss my blog (and yours!). It gets lonely when I don't get to socialize. So, here's a quick catch up on what's been going on while I've been away.

I flew across the country to New York to do the Renegade Craft show in Brooklyn. I had a really great time! My neighbor was the sweetest anyone could ask for - Kathy from Bossa Nova Baby. She has the most adorable patches of sewing machines and scissors.

Next to her was the Berkleys of Berkely Illustration. I FINALLY got my prints that I've been wanting to buy. So happy to meet Ryan and Lucy as well.

I spent a good 6 hours in the pouring rain wandering through the Brooklyn Botanical gardens. I saw only about 10 people while I was there. Did I mention it was raining? Evenings were spent with good friends eating Chinese take-out. What a whirlwind trip - but totally worth it.

Now I am back and trying to get going on preparations for the next 3 shows. My son is out of school after next week so I'm kicking it into high gear to try and get everything in order early.

Hope your weeks have been great and inspiring!
