Progress of Sorts

We knew a foot of snow was predicted, but even working diligently, we only managed to clean the shop and get two trips of display fixtures installed today before the storm hit us. Closing in on the one week mark before our Pop Up Shop, Creatively Maine, opens its doors, I have a list of to-dos as long as my arm and remarkably little time to get them neatly checked off. Thankfully, I have many friends and family willing to help us. And, Sean has been crowned the King of Schlepping; Long may he reign.

Tomorrow, I will have pictures for you of the silly animals playing in the deep, wet snow or of new pieces that I am creating in the studio. There are batches of fresh homestead goat's milk soaps to make. And, new bee's wax wraps to whip up. But, I thought that while Sean and I care for these chores, you might like to meet some of the artisans who are going to be available at our shop... Yes? Well, your wish is granted. ♥

To make it as easy as can be for you to see more samples of each artisan's creations, below are live links to their online pages. We hope you'll drop by the shop on Opening Day. The doors will open at 11 am. And, in the meantime, please, enjoy...
