Spring arrived early in Upstate New York this year. It's really quite wonderful with the fruit trees in bloom and the woods waking up. There is a true sense of renewal.
I'm busy working on some new pieces that I hope to have finished for the Quinlan Doll & Teddy Bear Artist and Collectors Convention May 3-5. Terry and Susan do a fantastic job of promoting and putting on a great event. I hope to see you there.
The 2012 NIADA Conference is going to be incredible. I can't wait to see everyone.
Lisa Lichtenfels is the keynote speaker. Ima Naroditskaya is creating the souvenir doll. The Dollmaking School is always a favorite with attendees. Be sure to check out all the available classes. My felted animal head class is almost full; so if you want to take my class, be sure to sign up soon. I'm really lookng forward to sharing ideas and catching up with friends both old and new. I'm going to get back to work now. There's so much to do.
