There was a wonderful party/meeting last month for local Philadelphia-area crafters who sell on Etsy. It was held at the Midwives Collective, who were nice enough to share their space with us. It was so nice to meet other creative types.
Directly above is a photo of one of the artworks on display at the Collective. Unfortunately, my photography skills could not capture the art well, but it is a very interesting gallery!

for a bit, you can see many shades of blue and green. I've finished the necklace with a pewter hook and eye clasp. You can find it in my Etsy shop here.

I lost a dear friend to cancer this past week. The last time we had visited was in August of 2008. I had moved quite a ways away from her ten years ago, so our visits had been infrequent, but always enjoyable. I still have to go through my low-tech photos of her, which will be in a box somewhere in the house. I have these pictures in my pc. We went to a Chihuly exhibit and a dahlia display that summer. I have great memories of our friendship and our many trips together, to Maine, to New York and once even to Scotland. She was a wonderful woman!

For my non-USA readers, happy whatever day! You can still celebrate our day by eating a lot of food, preferably ribs, corn, watermelon and blueberries (that's what I'm doing!). I'll be sure to celebrate your holidays too, just tell me what to eat! :)
