MAY FIRST! We are up and running. Had my first customers, first sale, and first bulbs coming up in the yard of 2014...
 Working on finishing up the beadwork for the "Butterfly Suitcase Bag". I'm really happy with the way it's turning out. Day light is now cooperating with long bead hours and loads of time working in the yard. Spring, sigh, just when you need it.

Spring has sprung and the motorhomes are showing up at the pull off. They take pictures of the inlet sunsets and snow capped volcanoes, then glance over and see that we are still closed… So we decided to put a fresh coat of paint on the gallery, always a good way to start the season. We flipped the colors on the display boxes. Last year I thought that the black on the inside would be good but it turned out to just sap all the light, so now it's white inside/black outside. I like it. The upper part is still unfinished, total chaos, but we are getting there. Then, just a good window washing, set things up and price everything, hang the signs and we are open for business. May 1st! I always feel so much energy this time of year. P.S. here's the little hummingbird that did not make the cut for the big suitcase bag. Now he's going to be a little postcard bag...
