Oh, So Grateful for So Many Blessings

It's a long time since I've done a blog post. What a busy year it was! From new shows, new designs, to time spent with family, so much has happened. I'm grateful for so much good, like: 

Entering designs in Hartford's Trashion Fashion show in April, and the friends who modeled them.

Getting to know and love our new kitty and our new bunny.

Time out with my girls.

So many market friends! And all the love and support they offer.

I spent lots of time in the outdoors with my sweetie this year.

New designs.

People who love my work!

And most of all, I'm extremely grateful to have work that I love doing, and that allows me to do the things that are really important: homeschool with Noah, and spend time with my parents. 

I spent a lot of time with Mom in her last months. She loved getting out in the sunshine.

She SUPER enjoyed all the fresh fruits and veggies I would bring her from the farmers markets!

This was her last time outside, and she loved feeling the sun shine warm on her.

Now Dad and I hang together a lot. He's doing really well at 96!

It's been a wonderful year. Good times, hard times, times for growing. 
For my business, it's been our best year yet, and for that, I

New Things for Spring 2013

It's slow season as far as farmer's markets go, but I have several events coming that are new, different, and exciting for me.  

Saturday March 9, I'll be participating in kids' art activities at the free Kids Stuff Exchange sponsored by Northampton Re-Use and Artists of Western Mass. https://www.facebook.com/NorthamptonReUse?fref=ts
There will be a pop-up shop featuring the work of the artists-in-residence for the day.

From March 22-April 19 my work will be on exhibit in the gallery at the Gales Ferry Community Center.  The exhibit is focusing on art made from recycled materials.  I've never done an exhibit before!

On April 20 I'm participating in a Trashion Fashion Show at Hartford City Hall - another totally new experience!

I'll post more information on my Facebook page as I receive it. facebook.com/bethanyhomecrafts

Have a wonderful Spring!
