Many years ago my sister Julie gave me a special gift. At the time I had no idea how special. Being lifelong "craft queens" we were always on the look out for new creative outlets. Julie came upon a great idea for making paper mache Santa Claus and Uncle Sam figurines in a craft book. They were made out of paper mache! She made several and gave them to friends and family for Christmas. I loved mine! I called Julie right up to thank her and ask how she had made him. She described the process and we made plans for her to teach me the next time we were together. At the time, some 17 years ago (say it isn't so!!) she lived in New York, we had 5 small children between us and were both stay at home Moms. We made alot of trips back and forth to each others homes. While the kids would play, we would craft and create. So, during that next trip to Vermont she brought along some celluclay and we shaped up a few Santa's. Somewhere along, one of us thought they would be a great offering for craft shows and Folk For All Seasons was born. We participated in several shows together in Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.
So there it is! The story of humble beginnings and hopeful aspirations. This blog will be about the developments and the creative process of this small business. It will likely feature new offerings, exciting updates and new show announcements as well as some daily life snippets. I am so looking forward to what will come my way in this regard and hope you enjoy the journey with me.
