There is a hint of spring today! Our first daffodil emerged this morning! Great day to rake leaves if I didn't have to move Artgirlz Nation forward!! Midge and Al went to Florida yesterday for a few dayz to check in on the family.

The Gilman show was good. Met some new people, saw customers, will be setting up some classes. Sue and I got the pallet for Chicago wrapped last night. Working to get orders out...Kate is coming today to help out.

Took this shot of one of shelves in the studio filled with Tracy's massive collection of "little things"...It is filled with things I just can't get rid piece was a gift from Pam Hastings...still have a few boxes in the basement to spread around. Better go and glue things on blank books!

The "Button Pusher" (made by Al a few years ago and I immediately suggested that it should be my birthday present! and it was) was speaking to me earlier in the week as Al and I worked on some communication issues! Things are moving along smoothly as we prepare for two shows and watch the boys in the lot outside of the studio window start to build a house.

Just finished the setting up the directions for one of the classes we are teaching this weekend at the Sue Gilman show. We are packing for that and for the quilt show in Chicago...the M and A will be in Florida next week...

The weather here in Rhode Island is sunny but still cold. Sick of it!

Happy Equinox!! At precisely 1:26 P.M. EST , the Sun will cross directly over the Earth's equator. This moment is known as the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. For the Southern Hemisphere, this is the moment of the autumnal equinox. It is still in the twenty's...but we have another tiny flower up and surviving the cold nights...The sky was beautiful this morning while I was doing some yoga...

Figuring out Artgirl head sizes for classes we are teaching and product we are selling...Tracy II on the phone giving Al a report...

I think that I have made it to the magical page that actually allows me to put a message onto our newly created Bloggggg... We are finally making it into a new phase of our technological life!

The other girlz are chopping wood and getting things into the truck for a dump run. We have had tiny iris popping for a couple of days. Have to get the camera out!
