Here is the Green Poodle dog house, we're putting a lot of effort into prepping for our big sale of the season. The last couple of years we've not been able to do a sale because something came up at nearly the last minute and things fell apart. This year...

People just don't read the paper like they once did and those who do don't turn out for the sales.
So this time, I elected for a different, 3 pronged strategy.

Deborah K Smith, PhD
As a self-proclaimed mixed media artist and creative professional, I am in my 3rd career, having spent 15 years as a software developer and another 15 as a university professor. My first love and my most demanding one has always been creating whether it be a drawing, a bit of crocheted lace, a cloth doll, a piece of software, a PhD dissertation, or a piece of digital art. I simply LOVE to make things and I see make and make-over opportunities everywhere. My only regret is that there is no possible way that I can live long enough to make all of the things I see in my mind.
