Hello friends, ah, don't I wish I were writing about studio renovations but, alas, I am not, BUT…we are having some home renovations done. We are putting built-ins in the living room, they are all finished but need to be professionally painted white, a new built-in desk in the family room (also needs to be painted white) and finally putting a microwave hood combo above the stove. Here are a few in-progress pics and after they are painted and all styled-up, I'll send out new updated photos…Andy's cousin Chris is a professional Carpenter + jack-of-a-tradeskills! He has done all this...
Happy Fourth of July!

Bits + Bobs, from Okoboji to NYC and all that is in-between
Hello friends. I promised to show you a few more photos from NYC. I have to be honest, I didn't get out of my booth too much, every time I did someone came into the booth to chat so I really only took photos of the booths right near me. And I am still adjusting to way it all works at NSS. I thought most folks would be friendly, and I think they are, there is just so much "competition" that I think everyone treats each other with a little skepticism, as well as, not sure if you are an intense...
More NSS: Belgians, Booths, History + Mermaids!
Howdy friends, yesterday I was knocked down with some type of flu bug, but I'm back and getting caught up. I thought I'd share a little more NYC with you. On saturday after we were all set up (the booth) we hit the city for the afternoon. A co-worker of Andy's out of the Manhattan office is a docent at the Natural History Museum so we headed there after finalizing the booth, for a tour of the museum.
