What a crazy year it has been, it truly has been a year of extremes. I have been blessed with good health, an amazing corporate order and my gallery, re-branded as Fire Arts VT is doing really well. I traveled a lot less this year and instead hosted a lot of Make Your Own events and taught classes. I will see what 2017 will have in store. I said goodbye to my dearest friend and co-worker and as I write this my father in law is losing his battle to cancer. Jaya made it through his 1st semester in college with good grades and Zoe is getting ready to apply for next year. Dylan is working hard and is loved by his employers. Happy Holidays and a Joyous New Year! Wishing you all a more balanced year ahead filled with prosperity, good health and love. Hoping to see you in Baltimore in February at the American Craft Council Show.
