The Good and the Bad News

I’ve always been of the opinion that you should hear bad news first so things look better at the end when you hear the good news.

My bad news is that my Smoky Mountain Leaf Works pieces will no longer be seen at Peace by Piece Stained Glass. Unfortunately things just didn’t work out. Sandy does some beautiful glasswork but I just don’t think my leaf art was in the right venue.

The GOOD news is that I’m preparing for the Autumn Leaves Arts & Crafts Fair in Townsend, Tennessee on Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30.

I’m making some new creations with some beautiful leaves I’ve already collected in the past couple of weeks. I think our fall color will be early this year due to our wacky summer weather.

The stepping stones are almost ready and look great in natural gray and terra cotta colors.

Gearing up for a great show!


About Cindy A. Johnson

I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I love to read, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping. I also like to watch wildlife, including my cats and dog (ha!). I write online articles on a variety of subjects. Check out my book reviews at:, wonderful nature stuff at and assorted articles on interesting stuff at My first ebook was published in January 2012: "Alphamania: An Alphabet Resource for Teachers and Parents."
