Last weekend I was at the Old Port Festival in Portland. Thanks to everyone who for stopped by my booth. It was great seeing my many former customers and wonderful to meet new ones. The weather was barely cooperative but in the end we did mange to stay dry!

I am delighted to be showing my work at the Lupine Festival, this coming Sat. (June 19) in Deer Isle, Maine. The 2010 Lupine Fest is the eighth annual celebration of Island springtime. In addition to local crafters, there will be garden tours, local foods supper, open studios, boat-plane-schooner trips, a quilt show, and kids' activities. What a beautiful way to spend a day!

If you're in Maine, I may have just sent some new jewelry closer to you! Come by the Center for Maine Craft in Gardiner at the West Gardiner Service Plaza, or stop in at New Cargoes, "Blue Hill's Little Department Store." The Stable Gallery in Damariscotta has received some new pieces, as have Ã…arhus Gallery in Belfast and the artist-owned Red Dot Gallery in Deer Isle. And last but not least, Chapter Two in Corea, Maine is carrying my work too.

To celebrate the arrival of summer and thank you for being such wonderful and loyal customers, I am offering free shipping on every item in my Etsy shop for the month of June and July! Find wonderful handmade gifts for June brides and bridesmaids and summer gifts for moms, sisters and aunts. There are some fun, sturdy $10 "flying saucer" pendants that make perfect gifts for kids, too. Visit Etsy store
