I'm a Lover, not a Writer

 SIGH!!!  It has officially been three weeks TO THE DAY since I have blogged.  Oh yeah...right...now I remember-I have a blog!  How easily I forget.  With the onset of warm, summery weather here in normally frigid New England, I seem to have lost almost EVERY OUNCE of my once fierce work ethic.  Summer was made for sitting in the sun on the patio, drinking ice tea and lemonade, while listening to the sound of laughing children, don't you think? A simple whiff of whatever happens to be cooking on the grill makes my mouth water, my stomach grumble, and any thoughts of hard work fade quickly away.  It sure doesn't help for our anniversary my husband finished the stone patio in our back yard, which is now the perfect place for day dreaming, barbecuing, and sun bathing! See what I mean?
SUMMER FUN:  First Family Dinner on Our New Patio!!!
In someways this lazy summer pace is a good thing, because my inventory isn't diminishing too quickly.  "WHY ON EARTH could that be a good thing?" you may be asking.  Because starting the third week in July, I will be doing another craft fair, and this time it's LOCAL!  Here are some details:

I just sounds smart...LOL
 My lack of motivation for creating new things has  allowed me become a more consistent reader/commenter on the Etsy blog, which lead to a quote from me being feature on the blog homepage!  So that's a good thing, right?  That exposure helped me get a lot more people noticing my shop.  That's right!!  Spread the word!  I even figured out (thanks to my techno savvy friend Jaclyn) how to take a screen shot of my little 15 seconds of fame so I can cherish this fleeting moment FOREVERS!  LOL.

Just because I haven't been super motivated doesn't mean everyone's been a slacker!  Check out these beautiful treasuries that other talented artisans put together, including Sweet Sincerity Jewelry!  Hopefully you will hear from me again soon!
