  • Viva Havana Auction and Fundraiser

    Viva Havana Auction and Fundraiser

    The Viva Havana auction and fundraiser which had held my thoughts hostage for so many months prior, ended up being a success. I had planned out everything ahead and took the time I needed to follow through with all my projects. It all fell into place despite sick children and foul weather. So I thought […]

  • The Trivia Fundraiser Design

    The Trivia Fundraiser Design

    Our Fellowship fundraiser this year happened in the middle of February (since when does February get so busy?).  But the Trivia night activity had me stumped and grumped for a visual theme for a trivia fundraiser. I like to make one big visual statement with each event. The anchor applique for the Anchors Away fundraiser […]

I was excited about my design idea even though I vehemently claim that I am no painter.  I figured, as usual, […]

  • Our Day At the Alpaca Farm

    Our Day At the Alpaca Farm

    Last weekend, we took the opportunity to leave the house with the children (if we have to) and went to an event at the Outstanding Dreams Alpaca farm here in Caroline county. I’ve taken Eamon there before and he really enjoyed these odd and peaceful creatures. This time, we had Fiona with us, lover of […]

  • Pretty in Pink

    Pretty in Pink

    My sister came to town to be present during the birth of the baby. And she brought with her an Amaryllis ready to bloom. She said she couldn’t bear to miss the flower’s grand finale as well. As it had not bloomed in two years, she didn’t remember the color. On the day the baby […]
