Way back in early July, my husband and kids surprised me with a party and what a surprise it was! I had absolutely no idea. Who would think they were the focus of a surprise party almost 2 months before the actual occasion?! So yes, I was surprised.

And we had so much fun! My sister and her daughter flew up from Florida… My son and his wife drove in from Boston… My daughter and her boyfriend were instrumental in helping with planning… ¬†Friends from near and far helped to celebrate back in July, and now it’s your turn!

Happy Birthday to Me!

JiSTdesigns craft show display photographed at Bang!Boom!CRAFT! on Passyunk Ave in South Philadelphia July 2017

First steps back into the crafting life…

As some of you know, my full time day job ended as of June 27, 2017 when the nonprofit I worked for sold to a for-profit operation. A very sad day… which opened a world of possibilities!

So I’ve taken that first step into the crafting life… displaying my hand crafted stained glass and hand knit wire items at a larger regional craft fair this past weekend. Bang! Boom! CRAFT! was held in South Philly on Passyunk Ave and it was a beautiful day! Sunny with a breeze… couldn’t ask for a nicer day!

Next stop… The 18th Annual Peace Fair at Buckingham Friends Meeting on Saturday, September 23.

I’m currently applying to jury for other regional fairs so stay tuned…
