A Eulogy for the woman who was and the girl who never got to be

Yesterday was my sister’s memorial service.  She was 31.  I’m not going to go into great detail, I already wrote about my reaction the day she died and when her dog, my first niece, passed.  Here it is, my sister’s life, summed up in written form the best way I know how.

2015 has been kicking my ass

Regular readers will recall that a little while back I said we’d be away for a while due to the death of a friend.  Truth be told, his loss was, at the time, the latest in a long string of Very Hard Things 2015 had handed us.

It seems, however, that June might bright A New Hope.  (Sorry)  But, before we get to the good stuff, let’s go over where we’ve been, shall we?

Last Two Jewelry Shows of 2014 – Buy Local!

It’s that time of year again, crunch time for shopping for friends, family, roommates, and that annoying Office Yankee Swap.  Have no fear!  I have your solution.

December 6th, 2014

I have two shows coming up, my last two shows of the year.  The first is 11:00am – 5:00pm at First Church in Jamaica Plain.  This show has been going on forever and is beloved among JP residents.  Get there early, the good stuff goes fast!

Craft Fair ad 2014Also, the good people at First Church will be doing a canned food drive as well as a drive for gloves, hats, scarves and new men’s socks for patrons of the food pantry.  If you have any of those items, no other clothing items please, bring them with you to help brighten someone’s holiday.

I am really looking forward to my first show with the good folks at First Church in JP.  I hope to see you on Saturday.

December 13th, 2014

Then, on Saturday December 13th, I’ll be in a completely different venue and there will be free wine.  That’s right, I’ll be at the Brookline Liquor Mart and there will be wine tastings all day as well as a group of local craft vendors selling all sorts of items from 1:00pm – 5:00pm.

BLM2014The folks at Brookline Liquor Mart have added this Art Fair to their extensive list of December offerings.  Come by and check us out.  It’s sure to be a great time.  And, I’ll have wine charms for sale.

I hope to see you at one or both of these great events!
