Local Author Visit
It was a real pleasure to get together with local author, and fellow maker, Maya Pagan Donenfeld
. We gave Maya a shop tour, and talked about her new book
, which offers up some really inspirational advice for creating a new self identity after crisis, trauma, or loss. It's called Hope Make Heal; 20 Crafts to Mend the Heart
and would make a wonderful gift for a friend or for one's self. Maya's personal story involves an unexpected divorce, and her crafts and thoughts are all about slowly re-building her sense of self and self-worth.
Maya was a great sport in the snow, but we both felt relieved when we found a nice warm spot to sit by the fire, away from the harsh lake breezes. Here are a few photos from our visit, with more to come soon.
