Back up, and Running (sort of)

If you've come here from my old blog/news page, welcome, and thanks!

I know its been forever since I've posted here. If you saw me at the 2008 Seattle Bungalow show, or have been in touch, you know why. For the rest of you, I'll make it brief.

Right after the last post here, in March, I was diagnosed with fallopian tube cancer. I had surgery, months of chemotherapy, well, I'm sure you know someone who's been through this. Perhaps you have. I'm told there is a 25% chance the cancer can return, but I passed my first 3 month check, and will continue to have them for the next few years. I'm learning to be positive, and trying to get on with my life. It's a challenge, but I have a wonderfully supportive husband, family and bunch of friends.

Anyway, I've had loads of time to think, ponder new design ideas for products, web site revisions, etc. As I have time, I'll be doing something about them. I'm also at work on an Etsy Store, so you can buy pieces online. I've been experimenting a bit, and like the idea of making some "one offs" that can be available elsewhere other than shows. More on that when its ready.

To those of you who have provided kind words, cards, and encouragement, I send more thanks than I could ever verbally say. And for those who saw me with a shiny bald head, the hair is back- with more gray, and curly, for now!
