On the Raod Again - in Maine

   My substitute teaching year is over, and I joined hubby Jim in Maine last week. He’s been working here since April and this is the first time I’ve seen him in 8 weeks except for Skype™ video calls and lots of regular calls during the day! I’ll be returning home later this week. Jim should be home in late July.
   Maine is fun. We explored the Portland waterfront (photos above include a portion of the Berlin wall that is displayed near the waterfront) and had a delicious dinner by the water. I may go back there tomorrow and explore some more. I’m also considering taking a short cruise around some of the islands. I usually scout out local craft shops but haven’t done that yet.
  We’re going to New Hampshire for the day on Tuesday that back here to have dinner in Kennebunkport - hopefully at a restaurant/pub we found the last time we were in New England.
   On Wednesday we’ll do a day trip to an historic area called Boothbay....we’ll take Route 1 up the coast and I’m hoping to get lots of interesting photos.....maybe I can use some with my Stampscapes™ stamps.
  I met a nice young lady who takes some beautiful photographs....she’s on Facebook - Monarch - The Art Of Brianne. Check out her work if you get a chance.
  Let’s see - when I return home, I’m having a Silpada party if anyone wants to attend, just let me know - it’s June 30th at 7 pm. I also hope to line up a workshop or two and maybe even an Open Studio Saturday for anyone who want to come and play. Of course, I DO need to clean up my studio!!!! I’ve spent a lot of my time with Copic™ markers lately but my tendency is to pull out other products, try them for awhile,  and then they pile up on my work area? Next thing you know I’m working on top of stacks of things!! LOL Do you all work that way too?
   Hope you all had a happy Father’s day with your father or with memories of your father!!
