Start Spreading the News

We're finally New York bound! Thomas has been accepted into the Toy Design Program at FIT and will begin classes this Fall.

We just received the acceptance letter yesterday after only being back from NY a little over a week.

We're not sure when we're moving just yet, but Thomas is required to attend a week long drawing course at FIT in June...so most likely before Summer.

Also, please save the date of Monday, March 24th for Thomas's BFA show opening reception which will be held at the gallery at 122 Tipton Street from 7-9 pm. Hope to see you there!

New York, New York

We're back from a long weekend in New York and New Jersey. Still don't know if Thomas is in or out for FIT's toy design school, but the interview seemed to go well. There were about 20 or so other students being interviewed that day as well. Fingers are crossed. We hope to know something before June. However, we loved the New York/New Jersey area so much we're thinking of moving there regardless. There are certainly more opportunities for the both of us there than there are here in Johnson City. The best part of our entire trip was reconnecting with my long, lost family. My uncle Mike and aunt Janet, cousins Alex, Sallie and Jesse and their significant others Rachel and Mush were amazing. We had great conversations, delicious meals and lots of fun riding the rails and touring the city with everyone. I had no idea how much in common I had with this part of my family, though I should have known since many of them are also writers. Check out my uncle's blog, The Wandering Hillbilly.

Here are some of the highlights of our trip:
