January 2010

I still can't believe that it is 2010! Just crazy how fast the last decade went. Last time I checked I was still in Buffalo, in grad school. Then I got married, moved to Maryland, had 2 kids, the eldest of which is in elementary school. When did that happen?

January has been a crazy month! We had to replace our heating system (the furnace was 32 years old, and the heat pump died, so we had to do the entire thing. I have also been busy organizing the science fair at our elementary school. It's been fun getting the kids motivated and helping them come up with projects. We have also been having lots of fun with girl scouts. It is cookie time, and we did our pre-sales, and now are waiting for them to come in. We had our first outing, and are planning more. Celia is really loving it too, which is just awesome to see.

Lots of fun things coming up! I will be participating in local Indie Artist Celebration up in Frederick, MD on Feb 20th. Here is the info:

Date: Saturday, February 20
Time: 12 - 5pm
Location: The Loft at Antique Imports, 125 N. East Street, Frederick, MD (directly across the street from Eleganza).

There will be about a dozen or so of us, and I can't wait!

I've also applied to be a part of the Homespun Yarn Party again. I had a blast with it last year, and I really hope i am accepted this year!

I will also have yarn at the Cloverhill Yarn Shop booth again at Maryland Sheep and Wool. I got great feedback from last year, so I'm looking forward to bringing out some of my favorite yarn, in old in new bases.

I have also gotten hooked on puzzles again. So far this year, I have completed 2. The first is one of my favorite Van Gogh paintings, The Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night:

And the second is a fun crafty one:
