Good News/Bad News

We will start with the good news:   Adonna and I had so much fun creating while she was in town again. We worked non-stop and into the wee hours of the night.  It is a good thing, too, because the John Burrough's show was a huge success! We are glad we had so many new creations to share, and it was rewarding to see so many of them quickly snatched up!  

Now for the bad news:  Saturday morning, as we were taking out the last box before heading off to the show, Adonna fell off our stairs and broke her arm.  CRAZY and soooo awful!  My husband came to the rescue and took Adonna to the hospital while I had to go and run the show by myself.  

Saturday night I came home so thrilled for the business and so sad for Adonna.

The doctors here said she would need to see an orthopedic surgeon within the week back home and gave her pain killers and wrapped her arm in a sling.  

She went home early Sat. morning (complete with wheel chair assistance) and will meet with a orthopedic surgeon tomorrow morning.  Please say a prayer for her and her recovery.  Certainly not the way we would have liked our week to end.

We're thankful this holiday week to take a break and have Adonna rest, and we are thankful for our customers whose appreciation for our work remind us why we love what we do.

Sorry to hear about Adonna.

Will you guys be having another open house this year?

We will not be having an open house this year as the inventory is moving too quickly -- good problem to have :)
