The Holidays will be here soon!Summer is a memory now and before you know it, the Holidays will be upon us. I have been busy making inventory for the several craft shows that I will be attending.

Welcome to my very first blog ever in my life. Therefore I haven't the faintest about the rules. But I can tell you lots about what I do. My work background has been in science/medical stuff, but my creative background was always in the fine arts, mostly watercolor painting. I still love it, but had to give it up when the kids arrived.
