What's New

Okay folks. Time for me to get serious here. The jewelry thing has been a lot of fun, but now it's time for me to knuckle down, promote, create and overhaul. What this entails is more office time for me. I will be following up on alternative ways to promote my art over the next 6 months. Internet, salons, shows, exhibits, galleries - anyway I can get out there. This includes completely redoing my web site, pictures of new jewelry, and hopefully some fun stuff too. So watch this space. My goal is a weekly update of where I am, where I'm going and how I'm getting there.

September is my busiest month. Which I actually consider starting yesterday. I was at Roots in Lancaster for their annual craft show. It was very hot, sticky, humid but I had a great time as I got to see lots of my friends and customers that I hadn't seen in a long time.

On September 13th I'll be in Hummelstown at the Arts festival. Lovely show, really cool town if you can make it. Show hours are 9:30 AM till 5 PM.

On September 27th I'll be in Lancaster at the Landis Woods Outdoor Art Show in Neffsville. Hours are 9 AM to 5 PM. This is one of my favorite shows to do each year. The park setting is fabulous and the art is amazing. This is a not to miss event.

I'll have a rest after that till November, but I will be busy making jewelry, seeking out venues and cleaning my studio. After all, the open house will happen in November and it's the one time a year you can guarantee the studio is clean. If you stop by any other time, well, you're on your own. I'm not a great housekeeper. Who has the time?

My best to all of you!!
Dianne
