Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.

talk about making an entrance : )

Walking by these graceful old doors, you can't help thinking of the countless souls who have called this place home, or dropped in for a visit. General Washington came here, at the war's end, to resign his command. Lincoln came too, to offer terms of peace to the rebel delegation.  Great men and women came here - to end wars. This charming town on the Chesapeake bay, with it's tree lined streets and famous crab cakes.. hoping we can find a little peace here too.

Fall 2013 textile designs

traditions made new
Keeping with the Fall theme, I wanted to share a few Fall icons I developed with a coworker friend at Jo-Ann Fabrics.  The designs were to have the look and feel of 18th century tapestries, (Versailles meets Cracker Barrel HA! :) but everything had to be in vector. It's a different style for me, but I'm always up for a challenge. Here is what we created.  -thanks again Michael and Johnny!
