    Thank you Claudia for your comment. It made me chuckle at myself, and might I say, blush a bit at my ignorance as I delved deeper into the true definition of the two terms – artists versus artisans. I stand corrected (and so does our blog). Thanks for pointing out the error of our ways and we hope you will continue to stop by Bethesda365. ~Amy
