not a very original title but perhaps a search engine will appreciate it!if you do not toot your own horn, you may end up tootless.This will be the first time in plus 15 years that I am not showing in Atlanta.I have mixed feelings about this as I would love new shops.I have held on to many of my lovely shops for 15-20 years.I have been creating like mad, travelling quite a bit (will be at BL signing event on week-end in Atlanta)My Easter is lovingly featured in the new 2012 Romantic Country magazine.I love my collectors!they are the most appreciative people in the world!!
The seasons come and go way too fast! with my computer work not on the top of my list, this has been neglected.I had a great season selling directly from my studio, had a lovely signing in San Carlos, CA and lots and lots of fun family stuff. Fortunately my boyfriend loves to cook and added tremendously to our Christmas.Whenever I am on the computer, my sweet old lab stares at me...for hours...and I feel like I am wasting his time.I am pretty much the center of his world!I have been travelling a lot, creating new santas daily and enjoying those grandchildren.Romantic Country magazine has featured my Easter and the issue is now in subscribers hands.
I am not a poet and am not certain what one could say about how glorious summer feels, that would sound new and fresh.Chris just returned to Nevada after a visit, Jack and Abbey are helping me find (and release) frogs and toads.Susannah, Katie and family go out to Katie and Joe's lake quite a bit.My Atlanta showroom is now sitting in the middle of my studio and Nichole is coming to help me disperse the furniture throughout my home. We are all loving the newish kitchen.I am putting a new little garden near the patio. We have one monarch ready to emerge in the dining room and lots of finches and unbelieveably lovely butterflies in the front wild garden. I really do not like to garden but it seems the only way to be surrounded by flowers.
My Teena Flanner Originals is definitely on the back burner while I enjoy summer.In November I am travelling to Shelby's Garden in San Carlos CA for a 2day signing.A few bridal orders and that is about it! I went to the Paul McCartney concert at Wrigley Field, The Greenbrier in WV and have had lovely guests from Norway, Virginia.
