Mom told me there would be days like these….

Wow, You took me by surprise! You came from near and far, you brought gifts, you brought flowers, you brought cake and cookies, you waited for the day, announcement on your fridge, or a bulletin board if you have a sub zero, but you waited, anticipating the days we could be together…..You shared the joys the sorrows, the giggles,the handmade items from Sis Boom Fabric, You made me laugh you made me cry, You showed me your humanity, your goodness your failures and successes, Your rejections your approvals but most of all the buoyancy of the human spirit, We are a family , a community of folks who celebrate handmade
and the joys of creating from the heart. Some strangers, some close friends, but you you knew with a name Sis Boom it had to have that element of surprise…that twist, that something special. We don’t take ourselves too seriously because life happens when you least expect it……we’ll look back and see the kids jumping on the beds outside, the wet dog smells running through the house after George was squirted with water from the hose outside by the neighborhood boys that grew up here helping my husband work on the garage. We will remember the fresh Strawberries Barbara brought from PA and the Angel food cake to go with it… The cutest couple ate lunch under a tree, Children used Barbara’s paints to squiggle while mom perused the halter dresses. Close friends came with their posse when the book publishers showed up at 2pm on friday…ensuring we looked busy. Saturday 90 degrees and you never stopped coming up the driveway. Mothers and daughters came to be inspired! Young Girls wanting to work and be a part of the Sis Boom Legacy of girls encouraging other girls.. So many people showed up to help and be the experience. Barbara painted outside under the tree having lots of chats with various folks who love her and her fabulous work. At this point I think its important for you all to know many years ago I had a dream and for years I wanted more and rejection and disappointment was never easy even though I was grateful for the small strides. My mom always reminded me to be in the day and enjoy the goodness in the day. She always said God has a plan and for years despite my insecurities and doubts I prayed for for the willingness to believe. Well fast forward ten years of shows hard work has revealed itself…never give up!
Lastly a huge thanks, I see all your smiling faces, but I could never name you all and as a sensitive person It would kill me if I left anyone out. You all matter!! You all matter to me! Thanks for showing up with your
love of the craft. You have moved me greatly. Love, JenniferDsc_0398_2
