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.

The day has come

To my little brother the day before your wedding day:

I never thought there would come a day that I could easily admit that you have grown up. When did this happen?? Gradually, then all at once I guess. In my mind you are still the tiny little boy who dominated at hide and seek, was super picky about food, loved playing with beanie babies, and who would happily play dress up with me and my friends. How did you grow up into this tall, mustached, degree wielding, wedding bound adult man? However you managed it, I just wanted to tell you how
 proud I am of you for all you have accomplished. First graduating with a degree in your field of choice, then finding the love of your life and now you are going on in the ladder of life and tying the knot tomorrow. Although you may be growing up, you will always be my little brother and I love you!

Xoxo - your big sister
