Thursday, September 8th, 2016

I came across this word recently and it so perfectly defines the way Dennis and I make our art! And don’t you think Coddiwomple is a better name for this blog than boring ol’ “News & Notes”? We hope you will enjoy browsing this blog where we share the many ways we coddiwomple through our lives […]

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012
