Tis the Season


It only seems fitting that on the first day of December I will be making my first batch of Christmas cookies.  We will be hosting a holiday get-together this weekend, so we spent last weekend "decking the halls".  And, deck it we did - even a sprig or two in the "loo"! 

I spent some time cleaning-up my workroom.  What a mess it was. Now it's a much more contained mess.  I am looking forward to working on a few projects (gifts) this weekend.  I know that my hubby will be watching the Civil War game between U of O and Oregon State, so I will have some quality time at my work table. 

I always look forward to being able to work leisurely on a project for someone special.  Actually, that is how I got started in this creative business.  People would see something that I had made for a friend or family member and ask if they could commission me to make something for them.  And, so it went.  Ten years later, here I am making lots of somethings for many of you.  It still makes my heart happy to see some one's eyes light up when they hold one of my creations.  That makes all the work worthwhile.

For some time now I have been discussing conducting a day-long workshop or two after the first of the year.  I am devising a project that will be universally interesting to a mixed group.  I will pair this day of creativity with delicious food and lots of fun.  SO, stay tuned for more information.  It's coming soon!   M.  PS  If you are interested in hearing more about the workshops, leave a comment and I will keep you in the loop!

I am interested!! I have wanted to come down your way for so many things and just didn't make it. I love the creations you do and would love to learn how....if a total novice can?? Maybe I can bring some other people,too. It would be fun.
