August 2021

We hope you are all having a pleasant summer.   Alan and I have just moved from Wexford, PA to the town of Berlin on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.


While in many respects it is difficult to leave the Pittsburgh area after living there for more than 40 years, Alan likes to say that he has ‘enjoyed Southwest PA about as much as he can’, and that living near the ocean is a real plus.  He also tells ‘the locals’ that he came to Maryland because taxes in Pennsylvania weren’t quite high enough!!


Since it looks like we will be selling ‘in person’ at only 4 arts and craft shows this fall (see details below), we will continue to offer my full range of note cards and glass coasters on my website:  


We also know that kids are either already back in school or soon will be.  So I just want to remind you that I have 3 notecard designs (shown below) that would be perfect for sending a note to the teacher or as a gift of appreciation.


Finally, here is the list of my upcoming ‘in person’ art and craft shows:


Sept. 11: Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival, Bethany Beach, DE, 10am-5pm
Sept. 30.- Oct. 3:  Ocean City SunFest, Ocean City, MD, 10am – 10pm, Sunday 10am – 6 pm
Oct.  9 – 10 & Oct.  16 – 17: Christmas in the Woods, Columbiana, OH, 9 am – 5 pm
Dec.  2 – 5: The Bizarre Bazaar Christmas Collection, Richmond, VA , 10 am – 7 pm  (plus ‘Early Birds’ on Thur. and Fri.)


Hope you can make it to at least one of these 4 great shows!


We wish you and your families an enjoyable, safe and healthy summer.  Be on the lookout for our Fall newsletter coming next month.
