Introducing the latest from Hilltop Herbals! Also known as the Hilltop Herb Woman and so on. I created this free ebook for you, with a small selection of recipes that can help during the cold and flu season. So, enjoy it! And all comments appreciated.
Why the Hilltop Herb Woman? I think I’m the only herbalist on my hilltop AND I’m enjoying my life as an herbalist so much that I’m embracing the identity. I love being able to offer items that can help people and knowledge about herbs that I never knew I wanted.
Please join us at the annual Catoctin Colorfest in Thurmont, MD, this weekend, October 12-13. We will be located outside Hobbs Hardware on Main Street.
We will have Art Glass, photography, herbal remedies, crafts, wood products and more. We’ll even have a Decorate Your Own Ornament station.
Stop by and see us and stay for a terrific festival.
I have been fighting the mother of all viruses since Sunday, July 1st. And ordered to bed rest for the next few days. Not sure as an herbalist if I should have done it, but I posted it on Facebook about how sick I was. Low and behold, a private message comes to me asking how I can call myself an herbalist and still be sick.
Seriously? First, how is it ok to even question that in the first place, and second… Herbalists are people too and will – on occasion – get sick. Ugh! Plus, I’m no match for dehydration which landed me in the emergency room on Sunday afternoon.
So, I’m sitting here working from bed at virtual assisting (Thanking God every day for my wonderful clients!), writing, and studying. But I am following orders to take it easy and rest in bed for a few days. I’m loving my adaptogen and nervine tea with honey to sooth my agitated mind and calm my body so it can recover.
But here’s my public service tip of the day. It is not ok to trash people like that. Be kind people! Oh and, HYDRATE, HYDRATE, H Y D R A T E !
Hilltop Arts is expanding!
We are now offering handmade cut, engraved, etched and items as well as custom items. We have awesome new machines in our studio that will enable us to do much more custom work as well as the more quality gifts you’ve come to expect from us.
We will be adding new products in these categories as we develop them.
If you’re interested in custom work, please email us and let us work up an estimate for you.
I’m a bit late in sharing – the Artist Reception was awesome and I loved every second of it. My cold medicine wore off about halfway through so by time we got home I was pretty sick.
I’m so grateful for the support from my family and friends who came to the show! It was really wonderful to show them my artwork and explain the processes I used.
The Garryowen treated us wonderfully and and were very attentive and showed us a really nice time.
The show will run through the end of January 2018 if you missed the reception so there is still time to see my work.
Here are some images from the evening, and I’ll add more as I gather them from various cameras.
Be well and enjoy the holidays!
