Defining the woman behind TAFA. An interview with Rachel Biel.

The world economy has changed dramatically in the last ten years and the United
States is no longer a stable economy that can support the arts like it used

to. As other emerging economies begin to have more disposable income,

they also begin to show an interest in the handmade lifestyle. I

figured if we all banded together and drove people to the same place, it would
be easier to be found. My mantra has been “Together we can do great things.”

I’m finally thinkin’ spring

I love spring, it’s always the beginnings of change that I most appreciate, spring and autumn.

In the not so distant past, I’d throw a spring garden tea party, my annual event. Being the kind of person that I am prone to be, it was always a large event. It was timed to show my garden at it’s best, roses at the peak of their first flush of bloom .Enjoying friends chatting, admiring the flowers with pretty tea cups and tiny sandwiches. It’s perfection. But…the hitch is always predicting the weather.
