So long, but not goodbye...

We bid a fond farewell to Karen Henderson who is moving from Vermont to Pennsylvania this fall. We owe Karen a huge debt of gratitude for all her time, skills, and elbow-grease on our behalf. Through her many contributions as our state representative and the originator of this blog, she fostered the Vermont chapter of SDA into the vibrant and active group it is today.

You can keep up with Karen's activities through her blog, My Big Sunny Window.

Some of her smaller wall art pieces, in addition to her Inside Out Studio gift items, will be on view at "Celebrate! SPA Annual Members Show" outlined above.
