I will be leaving for a much-needed trip to Connecticut on Monday the 7th of October
to visit with my Mom & family ~ play in the old graveyards there, take pretty pictures, eat good food and rest up a bit before the holiday rush.

I will have my laptop with me so if you need me just holler!
Peter, Chris & Felicia will be here holding down the fort (farm) so you can contact them if need be.

The kits for the last LSHC have begun shipping so expect yours within a couple of days...

Hoping you all have a beautifully creative weekend my Friends ~
