I've been so busy traveling and/or making jewelry I'd just forgotten to make time to blog! But, I heard that some of you missed me...so..I'm back!
Just this week alone was so busy...
A visit to my friend Lisa Kettell about 90 minutes from me for an informal get together and to meet her friend Ian Ziering....former star of 90210. He and The Lenster talked motorcycles cause they both ride Honda GoldWings.
Just to see Lisa looking happy and fit and to peruse her craft room was a joy in itself. I'm only giving you a very small glance into her room because who knows...maybe a craft magazine might want to do a full story!!
Next day..up bright and early (not generally my 'thing'!) to meet with my Brandeis Womens Organization group for a visit to our local COPTIC Church.
Here's a little education:
The word Copt is derived from the Greek word Aigyptos, which was, in turn, derived from "Hikaptah", one of the names for Memphis, the first capital of Ancient Egypt. The modern use of the term "Coptic" describes Egyptian Christians, as well as the last stage of the ancient Egyptian language script. Also, it describes the distinctive art andarchitecture that developed as an early expression of the new faith.
The Coptic Church is based on the teachings of Saint Mark who brought Christianity to Egypt during the reign of the Roman emperor Nero in the first century.
Abraham about to slay Isaac...from the Old Testament.
Just a beautiful rendering.
Off to Riverbank Antiques in the historic town of Red Bank (NJ) for the annual Holiday event. Six local artists were invited to sell during the big party...
I set up right next to my sweet friend Laura
Love Laura McHugh

Laura has the most delicious whimsical style & love of colors
Kecia brought some of her absolutely darling hand made Christmas ornaments
Leslie Marsh makes exquisite hand made books...they make me droooool.....big time...
And anytime we get to see Aaron and Jenny is such a gift. They do so much hand work on their designs they are busy 24/7...Yes..Lt. Dan was the hit of the party !!
and, in case you were hungry...well....here's a look at just some of the deliciousness !
Tonight we're going to see "SPAMALOT" in a local production with a bunch of friends. The Lenster and I saw it on Broadway when it opened with Clay Aiken and we loved it.
so....I promise to be more faithful to my BLOG and hope I see you all again soon !
