Autumn Greetings

I don't have to travel too far
to find a wonderful variety of Fall's bounty.

Just down the road
is a farm stand
with hayracks
full of pumpkins.

And whatever kind of gourd you fancy.

Oh, the mini pumpkins!

I love those.

See the mountain in the distance?

That's where we got married, right at the top, overlooking the valley.

We can see it from our kitchen window.

Feelin the Love

It's a cold, rainy, snuggly kind of day.
We're all feeling it over here...

Is it just me, or is it kinda hard to concentrate

when someone's staring...

A Big Thank YOU!

Holy moley you guys,
I haven't been this excited since the day I discovered
blue nail polish.

I'm overwhelmed by the amount of support and kind words
about my new online shop.

It was so much fun today to see orders coming through,
as I happily made more items for the store.

THANK YOU so much - my heart swells today!

Secret Project Revealed

A couple weeks ago I was working on a secret commissioned project.
Now I can show what was in the works...

These are personalized tree markers I created for a party host,
who had his guests choose and plant a tree in his new fruit orchard.

After each family planted their tree, they hung the marker from a branch.

These were so much fun to make, a really cool project.
I'm loving these kinds of creative challenges!

Last week the corn was harvested in the field that's right outside my studio window, behind our house. I love seeing and hearing all the activity at our place. It's an exciting time of year that brings back lots of memories of being a farm kid!

Happy Harvest... Happy Creating!!

All Wrapped Up in the Studio

My Mom is here for a visit and we've been spending time playing in the studio. Each morning we have our coffee there while we play around with paper, beads, buttons, markers, ribbons, and fabrics. For my sister's upcoming birthday, we transformed plain boring gift bags into a "present"ation.

So...I'm sworn to secrecy about my latest studio project...
I'll share what I've been working on in a couple weeks.
Check out the wicked sky from yesterday evening:
