October 1st, First Friday

The Two Sisters (, Beth & I, will be showing our jewelry at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitor's Center ( this Friday!

We are delighted to be part of the First Friday Art tour here in Fairbanks, and would love to see you there!

My New Job!!!

I have been hired as an "Early Reading Intervention Specialist" at my daughters' school!
Fancy title for a reading tutor. And I'm delighted. =)
I'm working one-on-one with 1st through 3rd graders who are struggling with their basics, like sound recognition and figuring out words.

It means I'm very busy now, though.

I'm still doing the jewelry business, although Farmer's Market has shut down for the winter.
Instead Beth & I are busy busy collecting and finding Christmas Bazaars to show our work.

Also, I'm still doing piece work for Judie Gumm Designs. So, I'm a little overwhelmed, and haven't quite figured out the rhythm. I hope I can balance mommy-hood, jewelry and tutoring.

The big thing I've ended up letting slide is blogging. However, I don't intend for that to be true forever... Just until I can figure everything else out.

My girls started the school year with a bang.

Deborah started a week before Abigail, and then when Abigail was supposed to start kindergarten she was SICK. Really sick.

So she didn't start until this week.

At first she was thrilled, but lately she's been begging for me to let her stay home.
When I asked her why, she told me she didn't like having people tell her what to do...

Well, who can blame her. I don't really like people telling me what to do either. However, that's life, you know? You've ALWAYS got someone telling you what to do- your spouse, your boss, the police...

Anyway, poor kid. She's coming home so tired. Just worn out for the new schedule, and the new teachers, and the new kids. And all those people telling her what to do...
