January 1, 2020 was the 10th anniversary of my blog! We finished up a super busy year, then took a few weeks to relax. Then- Covid! And things came to a screeching halt. Here you will find ten years of documentation of projects that came through our workroom. Things changed a lot in those ten years, but the content of this blog is still relevant to workroom fabrication. Perhaps it will resume- if not here, then on some other platform, and if it does, it will be announced here. Meanwhile, I am working, teaching, learning, loving what I do, exploring other avenues of creativity, and trying to keep a handle on what's important! I hope you are, too.
I came across this photo. Guess which one is me?
On my father's side, my grandmother Agnes was a master knitter. Her daughter, my aunt Doris, is a Maker as well. She knits, crochets, sews, and does exquisite scrapbooking which eloquently tells our families' stories.
My father was a maker, too. He loved woodworking, crafting, and building or painting anything. He and my mother had a ceramics studio for years. My mom was the crafts director at our beloved Camp Cherith in the Poconos for many years.
I am learning how to pass on my love for making. It's a slow learning curve, and I have to take it my way.
