Summer’s Coming

I’ve been so busy in my shop/studio the last few months, trying to be ready for the tourist season.  It is starting to pick up a bit now, but days are still unpredictable, sometimes lots of cars, sometimes only a few.  I like this time of the season because there are people around but it’s…

Website Updated and Featured Zibbet Interview

Hello, MY WEBSITE IS MODERN!!!! I finally did it!!

A busy fall…

I think I’ve settled into this blogging rhythm.  One post every 3 months, that’s good right?! It has been a busy time for me, I haven’t had much time to pause for about 7 months!  I rolled right out of a bustling summer into the Cabot Trail Writers Festival, where I sold my used books…
