One of Those Weeks

Too much happening. Too much to do, too much to think about, too many decisions to make. It's one of those overwhelming weeks.

Hidden Treasures

Here in the Northeast, our snowy winters are the perfect time to explore the little-visited museums of our area. Recently we drove to Madison NJ, home of the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts. What a gem! This lovely building was originally built as a library, and has vaulted ceilings, elaborate fireplaces, carved stone and wood detailing and a working Seth Thomas clock in the tower.

But the best part of the building is are the literary quotations that are in the stained glass windows, painted on the walls and carved into the fireplace mantles.

Isn't it wonderful when something like a little museum can lift you up on a winter day?

New Everyday Cards

In designer language, "Everyday" is a category that refers to occasions or events that can happen any day of the year. Like birthdays, weddings, births, thank yous and the like. As opposed to occasions that are date-specific like St. Patrick's day and Christmas. Here are two new cards I did with Great Arrow, and they turned out beautifully! I love the rich smoothness of their hand-silkscreened cards, and the care they put into the craftsmanship. My Great Arrow cards are available here.
