Fa, la, la, la,,la,la,la

Isn't he cute? At my last show, a little 10 year old came to my booth and eagarly told me that she sold things too on Etsy.......of course, I asked if she could show me and she quickly pulled out a few felted animals. So adorable.......I purchased this fun little owl. I think she was a bit surprised by my purchase but I just thought she was adorable....the owl too.

These are called my "Me So Pretty" buttons. I LOVE them. I wanted to keep them but they are at a local bead shop and for sale....Head over the Bead Breakout if you want them.

A display in process. I am the featured artist at Bead Breakout for the month of December and January. When the owner told me I had "this" wall, I had to think fast as to how I might "hang" my work. I've never hung my work and was a bit nervous about it since glass doesn't really like to be displayed this way but I really kinda like how its working. The display isn't real full right now since I just finished a 3 day show but I will be in to stock things up once I have things ready.

So..........Happy Holidays everyone! Buy handmade & buy like this are always more unique and are American made!!!

Setting Up For the Show

This weekend I will be at the Holiday Bazaar at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. Being at this show always puts me in the Holiday mood. Decorations, music and the thought that Thanksgiving is right around the corner....Its an indoor show too which makes set up really nice.

Well, I'm almost ready to go. I have a few items that need putting together and then I'll be off for the Friday evening start to this event. Hope to see you there :)

Monday Meeting....

Oh, the fun I had working with enamels yesterday!

I think these will be going into my Etsy shop later this week.....along with some other goodies. But, I must prepare for my upcoming show!!

New Niche Pendants.......they still need some awesome beads to adorn them but the silver work is done. I totally LOVE these. Big, Bold and Beautiful. A nice chunky cubic zirconia accents both of these Folk Art inspired pieces.

Whack Your Head Wednesday

Hear the Knock of Opportunity

#48 A leading business school did a study that showed that its graduates did well at first, but in ten years they were overtaken by a more street-wise pragmatic group. The reason according to the professor who ran the study: "We taught them how to solve problems, not recognize opportunities." Where do you hear opportunity knocking? How can you answer it?

Art Therapy

Sometimes I just love to paint. I like to just blend colors, splatter, and drip paints.....color and texture being most important. Poppies. Made from newspaper and paint. I love it.

I love the chaos going on here. Colors are bright and vibrant. Both paintings are similar yet different. Which one do you like?

Need to really buckle down and get ready for all the upcoming events! I feel like I'm being pulled in so many different directions that its almost easier to do nothing. Overwhelmed I guess. I have another canvas waiting to become something.........maybe I should do that!
