Happy Holidays to all! First, an explanation for the long blog post hiatus. Barb and I were working on a costume for a contest and we wanted to keep it secret until all the entries are in. My oh my we are excited about it – we worked on it for about 6 months – panning and exciting our design. We’ve submitted it now, but entries are still open for a bit. Expect a detailed post on it in mid-February, when the first round of judging gets done!
