Can you believe that it is already time for graduation? I don't know about you, but the older I get, the faster time goes by. I have had several graduates come by and register at the shop that I remember as babies. Now that can make you feel old! It's good to see these children grow up to be such nice young adults. I know they are as excited about their future as their family and friends are. We should encourage our youth everyday. They should know they can be anything they want to be with a hard work and dedication. I know you share the same enthusiasm and congratulations to all graduates. Their life is just beginning. I see them as our future nurses, doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, political leaders, shop owners and more!

Congratulations to all graduates!

It's always inspiring to have a change of scenery. We recently moved our shop outside for the day at our annual Festival On The Round. Thanks to all our friends who stopped by to see us under our beautiful tent. Festivals are starting to diminish nationally, and unfortunately our annual festival is no exception. People are so busy these days, and have so many options to spend their valuable time. I hate to see the decline of the festival. This is the perfect time to meet up with friends we haven't seen for a long time and catch up on all the latest "news." It is a time to relax and enjoy wonderful entertainment and shop the many artisans and local businesses. The people who were at our festival had a wonderful time. We met many new friends and were able to showcase the Evelyn's experience to them. We had alot of fun and hope you did too!
