Personal Update

Hello all or "Howdy" as we say in College Station, Texas. I have not posted in a while so I thought I would give you a little update. As you may have noticed from a previous post, I have moved from West, Texas, to College Station, Texas. I've been very blessed, both personally and professionally. I married Randy Mena in November 2013 and he owns a local business. Check out our new website: menaplumbing.com.

I have a new job in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs as an Administrative Administrative. I have settled in nicely and have kept myself very busy. I've joined the American Business Women's Association and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the other members. I have also joined the Texas Educational Support Staff Association and look forward to attending their Summer Work Conference next month.

And in answer to your question, yes I still work on Czech costumes. Not as much since I have also been finishing up coursework for an Associates Degree from Hill College. But lately I have been working on the collar/scarf for my daughter's Kyjov costume. Currently the costume is on display at the Texas Capitol Visitor's Center as part of the PolkaWorks Texas Czechs exhibit. Trust me, it will not be finished any time soon but I will post pictures from time to time to show the progress.
Thanks for listening and now I have a request for you. If you have a Czech costume, send me a photo and a little about YOUR costume(s) to czechcostumes@gmail.com. I am sure others would be interested in seeing costumes from different regions. AND if you made your costume, share some tips for others. Sharon

Sharon - so happy to hear about the good things happening in your life. But also, that you're still working on kroj. We are deeply appreciative of the loan of your amazing work for the Texas Czechs exhibit in Austin (and statewide!). So proud of you. -Dawn
