One of my pieces is in the new Lark book on enamel, so I received my complimentary copy a few days ago. It is just as nice as the other books in this series. I already have my "faves" and am sure I will have even more as I page through again. Sarah Perkins has selected an amazing body of pieces in a wide range of styles - the images are wonderful and inspire me to get back to work... Thanks to all involved!

Finally...well, almost. The website is a work in progress, but the most recent work is up!
Somehow I always neglect to photograph each piece properly. So not all of the work is there, but a pretty good representation anyhow.
Could it be that I am working madly to the wire??? I KNOW I am not the only one guilty of this.

Well, another ACC show is behind me and this one was much better than I anticipated. I attribute it to having mostly new designs, some new display elements, and good help in my booth. It's nice to know that people were actually out there shopping.

I am looking for examples of bad photographic images for a Professional Guidelines document about Professional Quality Photographic Images and Knowing How to Work with Digital Photos.
IF you have some BAD images (or a BAD and IMPROVED comparison) that you are willing to share with a wide audience, it would be most appreciated.
Of course, I can not promise that your image will be in the document, but it would be great to have some real life examples of bad photography,… Continue

If mobiles are meant to stimulate baby brain function, this simple, modern design from Julie Frith should make for some inspired little ones. Totless? Try hanging it in the living room, where it will just as easily delight the adults.

I am currently the president of the Bucks County Guild of Craftsmen here in Pennsylvania, USA. I wrote this article for our newsletter to get involvement by our membership. I'm posting it here, because this site is about community. Thanks Brigitte for a great site!
