Merry Christmas

Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things. I hope you're receiving a few of your favorite things, whether or not they come in packages, and arrive in the shape of love, warmth, food, or blessings. Merry Christmas to you with my best wishes for a happy 2012.

Earrings for My Niece

My niece Natalie just got her ears pierced. Making earrings for an 8 year old is quite different than those for an adult. It's a whole 'nother mindset and somewhat more challenging than I expected. My bead collection had only a few things suitable for her age. I also noticed that jewelry making was difficult because I was out of practice. Wire wrapping was messy and I'd forgotten how to manage my tools. In the end, everything turned out satisfactorily.

The Fat Lady Sng

The 2011 art show season is over and, in reference to the title of today's post, I'm done until next year, phew. Now you also know how to pronounce my surname, as though it had a "u" in it. Thank you to everyone who came out to support independent artists and buy locally! I'm grateful to you because you took home my handmade goods. If you still need lavender pillows, please email me -- there are just a couple remaining for last minute shoppers.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Love, Lauren
