A few members of the Angola Regional Artist Guild: Cindy McCormick, Judy Houk, Sandy Kabes and Karen Sigl showcase just one of their wreaths they have prepared. We will have over 20 wreaths to choose from each one ready to decorate your home and support a worthy cause. We hope you will stop in and see all the unique and artistic talent.

October is National Dollhouse and Miniatures Month

"Deana Tritch, married and mother of three young adults. My husband bought my first dollhouse kit when I was pregnant for our first child in 1988. I made a new one with each pregnancy and then took a 10 year break to focus on being "Mom." My husband bought me a new kit for Christmas in 2003 and I was off. I now have 22 dollhouses and 21 room boxes/scenes. I've worked on dollhouses for friends' young children and I started an online shop to keep the house from getting completely overwhelmed with minis. I love this hobby because I can use skills I've learned in other crafts to build, furnish and accessorize my mini homes." Stop in and see 22 miniature dollhouses and room scenes she has made. They are very cool!
