hello Monday...hello Polka Dots & Happy Stuff
Hello Monday. Let's take a peek at my week and what's new...
I'm thinking it's the the summer and
the lack of schedule that's making me happy.
Long summer days.
Yes, still work and chores and life...
but the not having to be someplace at some time is just about perfect for me.
And I am happy too, because I have such nice news to share.
Congrats to Jo on another amazing issue!
It's also great seeing good things happen for good friends....this is happy stuff.
So hello Monday...and hello to the feature in the new WWC
on my friend Jennifer Murphy,
the founder and creator of the Polka Dot Club.
I've worked with Jennifer for about 12 years....
I adore her creations, I've collected them personally and
I've sold them on the site for years and years....
I admire her talent and I was thrilled to be able to feature her in my column "From the Studio" (thanks Jo Packham!!!)
in the latest August issue of "Where Women Create" magazine....
Hello to celebrating sure and certain talent...
and hello and thanks to those that share their talents
with us through their amazing creations....
Hello to Jennifer's sweet handmade toys...
... with outfits to boot!
Hello handmade bears,
these are the heirloom playthings I wanted
for my kiddos when they were small...
Hello to things to cuddle...
Hello to all of us who appreciate handmade....and support the industry...
Congrats again to you Jo & Jennifer!!!
...you've made the week sweeter for me...
Hello to summer...can I stretch you out...
Hello to long, lazy days in the sun.
Hello to leaving dishes in the sink and taking a walk after dinner instead.
Hello to watching movies with the kiddos on the back deck.
Hello grill...I forget how to use the stove.
Hello to all of you...and have a super week...
