Snow... Snow... Go Away!

January Blizzard 2015The Great Blizzard of 2015 barrelled through our yard leaving an interesting pattern of bare frozen ground and 6-foot drifts.  Luckily the power lines held in our area - although we are prepared for such an event with an automatic power generator system.  Getting into the house from the street, however, is a major problem.  The wind piled up the snow into an 8-foot drift bl

Li'l Spookies

"Li'l Spookies" Craft Project by Laure PaillexAutumn in New England is my favorite time and place!  I love everything about the season - the  warm colors, the rich natural textures, the spicy-sweet scents of fresh-baked pumpkin pies and fresh-picked apples, comfy jeans and sweaters and wool tweed jackets.  October and November are "harvest and thanksgiving celebration" months

Stay in and keep warm.

2/19 Wednesday Eve Class Cancelled

Another class cancellation tonight. Hopefully, the rain and warmer temps will soon melt the glacier of ice covering our parking area.  I miss my painting friends!

2/18 Tuesday Classes Cancelled

MORNING and AFTERNOON PAINTING CLASSES CANCELLED - February 18th.  Our driveway and parking area are covered with ice chunks and patches - the salt/sand we had delivered last week washed away with the rain and then the weekend snow/sleet mess froze everything up again!  Will this winter ever end?!

The Girl Who Had No Charm

Do you ever wish you could spend an entire weekend playing with all your art stuff - paints, brushes, tools, papers, scissors, stamps, beads - whatever!  No interruptions, no expectations, no demands.  Just you and your adventurous spirit of imagination.  Well, last weekend's snowy, icy, sleeting "blizzard" blessed me with just such an opportunity - a chunk of time to
