I know I've been absent for awhile... but for a good reason. My sister-in-law drove from South Carolina ( we live near Kansas City, Missouri) for a nice long visit. We toured Kansas City's The Roasterie (coffee!!), The Country Club Plaza ( The US's first mall built in the 1920's!), the Brookside Art Fair.... and lots of other family type stuff. Plus she brought some projects along that she needed help with.
