Hi! Lots of spring cleaning around here. Azalea and I had some unexpected company over the weekend, our friends Laura and her mom Naomi from D.C. (owners of Talisman beads) came for a visit and some furniture shopping. We cooked like crazy and I had fun playing food stylist, trying to make everything pretty, then taking pictures. The pic above is rice pudding with almonds and Vietnamese cinnamon (its flippin' amazing and sweet- order some from Penzey's). The weather has been beautiful (see the crocuses Andew planted!), luckily for us as I would have hated to take the puppy out in the cold. We were lucky to have Laura and Naomi over with all of their dog expertise, they showed us some helpful tips to train our little baby. It was nice to see them.
The show season has started, so Greg has been swamped with all the prep work and travel, then the show itself, not to mention all the orders. I've pretty much stepped away from all the business of GGS, I only do a few shows and design now. Which is like paradise. I love spending my time being a mama! It works out, Greg is good at business so I have more time to create new goods. So the book is on the front burner, I've been working on it every spare moment. I keep wondering if I should even mention it, shouldn't these things be secret? Well, I guess this book won't be a secret.
