I have been a little behind in my blogging, but I am trying to balance enjoying some of the summer and am (still) recovering from Bead & Button. I still have a lot of work post-show to do to restock my site, galleries, stores, and my Rust Belt booth, and I am chipping away at it. But I am also doing a little relaxing, yardwork, and trying to get in some summertime. Last night, we rode our bikes up to Ferndale to get some dinner and ice cream for the first time. It didn't take as long as I thought and the sidewalks were in great shape (this would also be my route to ride the bike up to Rust Belt on the weekends, which is the reason I got the bike... I can commute by bicycle!) It's funny how the same road I drive almost daily seems so different when on bike or on foot. You certainly see things with new eyes!
