Well, if you are on my mailing list, you already know I'm not much of a blogger.... Busy actually doing things, not necessarily writing about them. And I've had a lot going on here! The ducks are mating, which means I have been incubating and getting ducklings out there in the world so that Silver Appleyards can get off the "critical" list as the Sebastopols have. It's fun, but nail biting too. Goose and Duck eggs are not in anyway easy to incubate. Temp and Humidity have to be just right and my calibrated hygrometer is off this year! But I've had one decent hatch so far and they went to live at a B& B lodge with a pond where they have a floating coop to keep them safe from predators. Pix at the end. You can see a short video of them the first day of hatch after they've had a few hours to dry off, here: 2015 Silver Appleyard Ducklings
Meanwhile, lot's of seeds started for my garden beds and they will have to be planted in the beds before I leave for a 5 day teaching gig. :-) Oh, and the asparagus has been coming in, so I know it's really spring! ;-)
But on to, the JEWELS! I have added a gift certificate to the website - just in time for Mothers Day! Here's how it works: It is in $25. increments, so you can purchase any amount you like in those increments by choosing 1, 2, 3, 4 or however many $25. you'd like to put towards the gift. When you check out, there will be a required field to let me know how and where to send the certificate. I can email a PDF for you, with all of the pertinent info filled out, or I can email it to your chosen recipient. Alternatively, you can give me a physical address and I can send it there.
In addition, I am also participating in a Mothers Day Special with a group of other artists. Everything in the gift guide is 20% off. My offering is a steel and gold chased, etched bracelet, and will have to be custom made, so if you'd like to take advantage of that, you'll need to order soon.
