My name is Suzy and I am a primitive folk artist whose first love has become the creation of all things primitive.I just love to create and let my art take on its own personality. I live in Maine with my wonderful husband,Rob,and together we have 4 grown children, 4 grandchildren, and our wonderful youngest son,Ben,who is 10 and very active. However.. he has been known from time to time to be right beside Mom working in the studio!
As I sit here writing this post, drinking my coffee,the sun is trying to shine through the cloudy sky,birds chirping everywhere, and many things are traveling through my mind.... this past week has made me think about many things..some good and some bad....I have concluded that some of the trials that we go through in life are just bumps in the road and are there for a reason. I don't always know the reason..they just are and not for me to question!!! My dear sweet mother-in-law is a diabetic and has had some problems with skin cancer on top of her head. The lesions have become severely infected and the cancer is eating into her skull..She goes on the 27th to the Alfond Cancer Center.. and hopefully will start treatments right away..She is a very sweet 81 year old woman..who stays very positive and it just makes you wonder WHY HER???? She takes very good care of herself and has a very positive attitude so hopefully this will get her through this bump in the road in her life... It seems really nice not to be doing shows every weekend like I have in the past..shows have been very slow here in Maine due to the bad economy..It almost seems like sometimes I am playing hooky, lol!!! I just keep plugging along with my on line venues and having a good time with it, instead of stressing out all the time about if I have enough inventory! Maybe its my age or maybe its the thymes.. but things are definitely changing here at the Mill House. The rug hooking is so fun and so relaxing..it just doesn't seem like work~ So for me now... I'm enjoying my good friends, my family, and my thyme spent "hooking"! "The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others." ~Vincent Van Gogh~
