Notes from Nature

2015 is off to a good start.  Wrapped up last year at a great rosemaling convention featuring Andrea Herkert and Gayle Oram in November and got California Rosemaling Association's newsletter, California Rosemaler, out in December. It's got lots of photos from convention and a feature on author Kathleen Ernst ( and her ventures into the folk arts for her Chloe Ellefson mystery series.

I'm stepping away as CRA's newsletter editor ( after almost six years and 23 issues. It's been great doing the newsletter but 2015 is shaping up with some new goals and plans for Lingonberries. There are lots of exciting prospects ahead... New paths for exploring... New projects and always, more designs...
