First of all, I want to send out a very heartfelt "thank you" to all who sent their condolences following Sophie's passing. Your cards, comments, prayers and phone calls were all deeply appreciated. If you're even looking at my website and this blog, then you are probably a dog lover, and so you know that losing a pet is losing a member of the family, and when you lose someone you love, grief is grief, whether they walked on two legs for four legs. Having others acknowledge that loss kind of validates it, I guess. So, many thanks for standing by us in our loss and lifting us up with your thoughtfulness. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now a note regarding an event that I originally planned on participating in this evening (which is repeated from my home page)...
A note to anyone who read on my October 1, 2012 blog entry that I was going to participate in a sale at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center this evening (Nov. 9)....Those plans have changed. The format of the sale was different from the last couple of events I have previously participated in there, and the deadline for submitting items to the sale was last week. Given all the things that have been going on in my life lately, I did not have time to re-mark each item as required by the Center and get it down there in time. Things were just a little overwhelming, so I will not be participating this time. It is still a really neat event, with lots of handmade jewelry by other artists that I know (and some that I don't), as well as enameling and ceramics, as well as a gift shop full of all kinds of handmade goods and art. It's a great place to pick up some one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts, so if you were thinking about going, you should definitely do it, even without me! If you are local and you would like to purchase some of my pieces for holiday gift giving, you can still do that... I invite you to set up a time to stop by and have a look. Send me a message under "Contact Me" and we'll set up a time. Bring some friends and I'll make you a cup of tea, and you can see what I've got in time for the holidays. I'll even gift wrap it for you, if you want. Thanks!
