I’ve been in Nebraska for the past two and a half weeks. My siblings and I, along with our various spouses and offspring, were having an estate sale to sell all of my dad’s things that he didn’t move into his new apartment and cleaning up his house so that he can sell it. I’m currently about half way back home. I’ll start catching up on emails and phone calls and be back to work on Monday. Thank you all for your patience <3
The 2014 Christmas issue of Early American Life, which includes their Holiday Directory of Traditional American Craftsmen, is currently on newsstands. I’m honored to have been juried into the directory again this year!!! I also have an article in the this issue :)
Big thank yous to both Alice Tessier and Laurie Gaboardi for the very nice article and lovely photos of our home and my studio that appear in the current issue of the Litchfield County Times magazine section.
If you’ve read the article and find a few things printed in it confusing, don’t worry, it isn’t your memory playing tricks on you! Take the article with a grain of salt & don’t believe everything you read. :) No, I didn’t change my name, nor did I suddenly split into triplets, Paula, Pamela, and Paul! Early American Life did not suddenly scrub my name off of 25 of their Directories of the Top Traditional Craftsmen in America (I’ve been juried into the EAL directory 29 times, not 4). You cannot see photos of our home on Early American Life’s website, Facebook page or Twitter Account. You can see them on one of my blogs, Paula Walton’s 18th Century Home Journal. In spite of these errors and a few more wrong facts and misquotes, it is still an engaging write-up. If you would like to read the article and see the accompanying photos, follow this link.
