Normally, this time of year I would be posting tons of prep pictures for clam festival. I would share the newest thing I am doing and give you a sneak peek of what will be at the show this year...but I'm not. After months, and I mean months (ask my friends and family) of agonizing over whether to participate in my 12th (!!!) clam festival, I made a very thoughtful, but hard decision. I will not be returning to the clam festival this year. I still have my studio and I am still making jewelry, so if you were really hoping for a piece this year, please let me know. My wise husband said to me a few years ago, "Kate, if you always go the extra mile, you are going to run out of gas." This year is about refueling.
I will miss catching up and hearing about all that has happened in the last year. Know that I will be thinking of each and every one of you as the weekend goes on...and that I am eternally grateful for all the 'third weekends in july' we have had together. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart
