Happy New Year!

(photo's via Miss Retro's Blog)

It's been a while since I've been online! I took a little "staycation", and hung out with friends and family, doing the turkey thing, the potato latkes thing, the Santa thing, the ice skating thing....the ear infection thing...ugh.

Oh my creative juices are flowing, and I've been sketching new images for my glass necklaces, and started a new batch of crow and bird sculptures. I love new beginnings, and am looking forward to 2012. I'm looking forward to trying new things, and joining in on more swaps (if you know of any great ones let me know!!). My fist swap of the year will be the paper/ephemera swap. It's an ongoing swap, with monthly themes, but this will be my first time joining in. Who doesn't need more paper stuff?!

A Weekend "Off" from Craft Fairs

This weekend was my first weekend "off" (from craft fairs) in a long time! Which meant I was able to go to my friend Jill Pilon's Annual Holiday Studio Sale!
Cathy Stonehouse, Sylvia Oates, Helen Spaxman, Robbie Vergaa, Laura Skuse and Milisa Gardy were also showing their art.
An amazing collection!
I left with this piece:
Jill is hosting a Mixed Media Techniques workshop in January - my spot's reserved - can't wait! If you are in Vancouver, and would like to see more of Jill's work, she just dropped off some work at the Hambleton Gallery.
Today we had a great time picking out our tree. It was actually much harder than I thought it would be for us to all agree. Everyone had their own opinion......this was our final decision:
Our front railing was covered with frozen spider webs - they were beautiful!

Weekend Fairs

This is my last multi-day craft fair weekend! Tonight, tomorrow and Sunday I'll be at the Coquitlam Christmas Craft Sale, and on Saturday (I split myself in two) I'll be in North Vancouver, at the Delbrook show. I've been working hard, staying up late every night making new stock for these shows!

Here's some scrabble tile cuff links in the works:
