Just signed on for a Christmas Fair

I just agreed to participate as a vendor in the Christmas Fair that my church is holding.

It is the St. Boniface Christmas Fair to be held on December 14, 2008 at St. Joseph High School, at the corner of Willoughby and Bridge Streets, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Many of the articles in my etsy shop will migrate there for the day and some will go to new homes from there. If I'm lucky, I might have to re-stock the shop!

All evidence a remarkable sensibility. Take a look for yourself at the

Meantime, I've been both gathering previously made items from every nook and cranny and producing new work to put online. Check them out at: http:// and get a quick peek below.
