If you are local I’d love to see you at any of these events in the month of May. I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of pets and adoptable animals. and seeing old friends and and meeting some new ones. Most of all, I love getting out there with my stuff after spending hours in my studio.

      Thanks, Jeanne! We’ve all had fun making these things. If the event is that big I might actually be able to consider it–let me know!
