Family and work; keeping busy

Well, here I am again. It has been awhile,and it has been a busy and tough several months for my family and myself.   As many of you know, my father was struggling with Parkinsons and dementia for some time.  He lost his battle on August 10. Though we miss him terribly, we know he is in a better place and is at peace.  We think of him often with love and chuckle as we think of the special moments we had with him.  

My holiday season kept me busy, and though it was rewarding, I am glad it is over and I am now I am back in Florida.  Mike and I have purchased a retirement place in the small town of Inverness, Florida..  It is in a retirement community of 55 and olders, (yes, I qualify) and we are settling in  to our new place.  During the next few months I plan on sharing our home with you as well as all the remodeling we plan to do.  Nothing too serious but just making it our own with our personal touch in decorating.  Our delimna is, what room to start with first.  We struggle everyday with our demons to tear into every room at once.  What a disaster that would be.  Here are a few pictures of my workshop, probably the last to be worked on.

We are filling up our craft show schedule in the south, and just finished the Manatee festival in Crystal River.  It was a nice festival,  my work was well received and I met some very nice people.  This weekend we are doing a local farmers market in Spring Hill. 

I hope you will stop back often.  I will have show updates, new products, some how-tos and of course my home remodeling.  I am sure I could use some assistance. 

Later...  Karen
