“Do You Know the Way to Santa Fe?”


About a month and a half ago Uncle Jerry called me and asked if I wanted to go on a trip with Aunt Geri, in celebration of her birthday, just she and I. He offered to set us up in a hotel and pay for it to boot. Does a bear poop in the woods? Yes, and yes I wanted to go on a trip with Geri. I suggested Santa Fe, New Mexico, a road trip no less, and the rest is history.

New Mexico is often called the Land of Enchantment. The light is magical, the land is orange, red and warm, and the people friendly and welcoming. Santa Fe is an artists haven where inspiration permeates the air like heavy incense trapped in too small a room.

We were seeking a way to regain energy lost during the winter months. We found, through people who were willing to share their time with us, new ideas for alpaca jewelry, and new design ideas for scarves and shawls and ponchos.

We're packed and ready to go.

    It was tons of fun and how fortunate I am to have Jan (and Gordon, Kirstin, and Jared) in my life! Jan also has “hidden” knowledge – since Gordon and she used to own a Native American art gallery in Steamboat Springs, she knows everything about this culture and I always learn a lot when I am with her. We met some wonderful, gracious artists and shop owners and it was such a joy to spend some “alone” time with my best friend. We have already started the short list of where we want to go next time we are in Santa Fe. We were totally inspired and got some terrific ideas for scarves, alpaca jewelry and more!

    That’s mum talking, right? Jan is her name? Sounds like a wonderful trip and it’s so nice to see your pictures.

      Yes, the photos are me, Jan, also known as Momma or Mum. The other beautiful woman in the photos is Aunt Geri. Thanks so much for following our blog. We have enjoyed hearing from you. Jan.
