It's not summer yet!?!?

Wow! Have things been ca-RAAZ-y around here!

So what am I up to?

January 1, 2015, I joined in cahoots with a local artisans' gallery owned by my good friend, Sam (check out Rust and like our page, plz!!). I run the gallery on Fridays. Yep! Filigree Fridays is what you will hear me say when you visit.

In March I was awarded my Juried Artist status with the Missouri Artisans Association / Best of Missouri Hands. Which qualified me for my own little shop this fall at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO!! (Well, it is actually an 8x10 space - but the little wooden, stand-alone structure looks like a shop! lol)  The event is their National-Harvest-Festival. And goofy me signed up for lots of weeks!!

What else - Saturdays in Ste. Genevieve. I'm working with the Ste. Genevieve Tourism Department on their Summer 2015 activities. With handmade demonstrations, music, and handmade/craft booths set up every Saturday. And we can't forget the costumed strollers! So much happening in Ste. Genevieve!

Add to all of that, I'm trying to blog and complete some new patterns. Below is my Angel Watching Over Me that I just listed on Etsy!

Well, other than getting ready for my youngest daughter to get married in September 2015, I think that about covers it. Phew! I'm tired! lol

So what are you up to recently?

Until next time . . . keep those papers rollin'!



  1. You have been very busy! And Silver Dollar City? That's huge! You're going to be working your fingers to the bones between now and then! Congratulations!

    1. You are so right, Patti. A feat I would not attempt for the number of weeks I signed up but I also purchase my product wholesale so I can retail products in my shop.. And how God that my main wholesale supplier is just north of Branson! I love to teach people to "Get your twirl on!" So I'm looking forward to this being an opportunity to "Spread the joy of paper filigree one twirl at a time!" :)

  2. By the way, your work is beautiful!

    1. Thank you, Patti! I can't wait to share some of your work. :)


Thank you for taking time to read my post and to leave a comment.

May your day be blessed!

Lisa - twirlin' twirlin' twirlin'. keep those papers twirlin'!
