As of mid-September, we are in our new home and my studio is nearly set up!  

The past year has been exceedingly busy as my husband and I prepared not only to downsize our home, but also to downsize a lifetime of possessions after 52 years of marriage.

We have been blessed in uncountable ways, from finding real estate agents (on the second try) who are skilled, knowledgeable and caring, to locating a nearly-new home in our preferred area, with the features we were hoping for.

The greatest blessings of all are our loving family.  It’s no exaggeration to say that my wonderful sister Mary made the actual, physical move possible.  Without her, we’d still be wandering in circles, clueless and disorganized.  She’s a champion mover, and the list of friends and relatives who have benefitted from her energy and expertise is a long one.  We’re thankful beyond words to be on that list.

And there can never be enough gratitude for the loving help, companionship and advice our son and daughter have lavished on us.  Any house we have lived in was a home because they were there.  Their physical labor throughout the move, and their continuing loving visits, concern, joy and laughter are making this house into a home as well.  

Now that I once again have “a room of my own,” I hope to start filling it with exciting new work.  I’m looking forward to gearing up show entries as soon as possible.
