What I Did On My Summer Vacation

And my idea for getting out a blog every couple of weeks went right out the window.  June 26th...two months instead of two weeks!  I was looking through my phone camera to remind myself what all I did these few months...and an idea hit me..."What I Did On My Summer Vacation".
So here goes:

In June:
I took a solo trip to Connecticut to visit my maternal grandmother's homestead and meet some family that I didn't know I had!
My grandmother's house in Old Lyme, CT.  Many, many fond memories here!

Tiffany's Farm in Hamburg Village where I grew up in CT. 
My maternal grandfather's side...
While in CT I was lucky enough to see my godson, EJ and watch his last baseball game of the season.    

In July, I took photos of the week-long workshops at Stonehouse and the Center for Book Arts in Freeport.    

July also found me on Great Diamond Island, year 31.

Hanging out at the back shore...

Also helped Heartwood College with some of the move to Biddeford.

Opened a new gallery called "Wholly Crow Gallery" with 2 friends in Biddeford at the North Dam Mill.

Went to Boston a couple times...
Hand dyed a few hundred tea towels that Wholly Crow Gallery sells.
AND on the creative front...
A couple little silver spoons meet dichroic glass...

Gearing up for the holidays...with fused glass beads

There is more but it's time to get busy and get into the studio for this semester's MFA work. 

Thanks for looking!


  1. Girl, where do you find the time! Old Lyme still is beautiful. I wish we were walking down the rad again!
    Looks like a productive summer. Glad to see you didn't sit around on your laurels. Let's get together sooner rather then later!

  2. I remember walking down that road one warm summer day and there was a big dead snake smack dab in the middle that you almost stepped on barefoot. That was fun! Gram laughed a lot with that story.
