MD Home and Garden Tickets

Hey everyone! I will be showing my work at the MD Fall Home and Holiday show on October 17-19 at the Timonium Fair grounds. 

Like last year, I have about 40 free tickets to give away if anyone is interested in going! It saves you the $6 admission price! If anyone wants them simply e-mail me your mailing address and the number of tickets you want and I will send them to you for free! I have a limited number of these tickets so I will send them out until they are gone! My e-mail: 

This year there is a new rule that we can't give these free passes out to our customers while we are in the show so if you want one you must contact me before the show starts! 

It sounds like they are trying to mix things up this year since they changed the name of the show to Home and Holiday instead of Home and Garden. I saw some interesting things on the flyer that looked new including a frisbee dog show and a showcase of a sustainable Tiny House. I'm really looking forward to participating this year, hope to see you there!

First Sundays Show in Annapolis

I will be on 25th West Street this Sunday in Annapolis showing my work and some fun new Summer designs! Come out and enjoy the weekend! Here is some more info on the show:


First Sunday Arts Festival in Annapolis:   August 3rd on Historic West Street
Over 100 Artists and Crafters
Music, Dance, and Performances

Summer is a prime season for visits to Historic Downtown Annapolis and is the perfect time for taking in the First Sunday Arts Festival with its many cafes and shops on West Street.   The line up of free events for the day is a well-rounded smorgasbord of art-related fun for the whole family with over 100 fine artists and crafters lining the streets.  These local and regional artists will be exhibiting silkscreen, pottery, hand blown and fused glass, nautical paintings and photography, wood turnings, iron works, jewelry, books, face paintings, henna tattoos, painted ostrich eggs and more. One of the great things about shopping at First Sunday Arts is meeting the artisans, learning their stories and feeling their passion about the unique items they create.  The date is Sunday, August 3 from 12:00 noon - 5:00 pm. 

Come early and enjoy the soothing music of guitarist Jonathan Stone at 49 West Coffeehouse or take in a Bloody Mary at Stan and Joe's. Meander through the many shops such as The Annapolis Collection Gallery, devoted to the display of the Annapolis master painters who have received recognition for their artistic talents. And, at the end of the day, the festival continues with steel drums by The Geckos on the patio of Ramshead Tavern.  Dogs are welcome, too!  Life is good on West Street!

August's sponsors are:  Remodel USA, Leaf Filter Gutter Guards, Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing, and Nu Look Home Design.  
There will be two more opportunities to enjoy First Sunday activities in 2014: September 7 and October 5.  For more information, visit

Wild Encounters

In honor of the full moon tonight we travelled to the  PA Wolf Sanctuary. 

Did you know that wolves like hot dogs? Well they love them.

We got up close and personal with 5 different wolf packs and got to experience what life in a pack is really like. 

The caretakers were so knowledgable and it's clear how passionate they are about these amazing creatures. We learned so many things I never knew about wolves. For one thing, they don't howl at the moon :) 

I highly recommend visiting if you get a chance. It's rare to be so close to any wild animal let alone a wolf pack. It's also a great way to support the needs of this amazing rescue.
