Spring is in the air!!
It's another beautiful morning here where I am, and Easter Sunday to top it all off, how could it get any better than that!

Our snow is melting, and the geese are flying back after their winter vacation in the south. There is nothing better in the spring, to hear the honks of the geese overhead, then we know it is truly spring, and the long winter is at an end at last.
I have been busy making to speak, or should I say "sculpting babies", and have had another great week on eBay with little Randy shown below.

This little guy was just a pleasure to make, with his big blue eyes staring back at me as he came to life. He measures around 6 inches, and will soon be flying off to his new home in Australia. I wish I could take him personally and visit there, it looks like an interesting place to visit.

I was supposed to be off to Ontario at the end of the month to teach a couple classes at the Canadian Doll Artist Association Conference, but found out just the other day that the entire conference has been canceled for this year due to low registration. Which makes sense, since so many of us can't afford to attend shows like that. The conference will be held next year still, and the good news is that it will be bigger and better since there is now a whole year to plan events and for people to save up for it.

I am now off to Edmonton, AB at the end of April to help promote our new children's book at the annual Spring Sale at the Butterdome. We will be there April 30th - May 2nd, we will have our very unique booth set up there, with a life size version of the Stibil Forest, complete with trees, and even Synni will be there to greet people who stop by.

I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful spring weather as much as I am, thanks for stopping by, and please take a moment and visit my websites for my sculpting, as well as the new children's book. Links on on the left side of the page.

Happy Easter!
