These are a few little disposable camera snaps from our inaugural Elmwood trip last weekend. We got home 6 days ago and I'm still floating. When Francesca (who had spent the bulk of our in-person time at Elmwood and the rest over long distance emailing) moved to the city last summer, she remarked on the significant personality change between elmwood amy and new york amy. I'm trying to keep elmwood amy alive for as long as possible and I can feel that this week it worked.
It also doesn't hurt that there are now 11 varieties of peonies in my studio.
My sister Micha is moving to sunny Florida for the next 6 months and I really can't imagine how I lived in New York for 10 years without her. I am so proud of the beautiful things she's made here and her help with my business has really changed everything. Her gentleness, imagination and ingenuity are unmatched, and I'm excited to see her use them in new ways while she is gone. Come back soon, big sis.
