Visions of Sugerplums...

It has been a wonderful holiday season, lots of time spent with the little ones that make this time of year extra special...
Our neice, sweet Miss Aubrey. She's got the same beautiful blue eyes as big sister, Emma.

Gabriel, what can I say?
Our little princess, Hannah.

Sweet baby Madelyn.
We had a great Christmas and are now enjoying a fun New Year's weekend in Williamsburg.
Hope your holiday has been filled with joy.
Have a safe and happy New Year.
Be back in 2011!

White Christmas...

I wish every year for a White Christmas and although we didn't get a lot of snow, we did get a few inches 2 days before and a little more on Christmas day. Here a few photos I took...

Love it when wishes come true! It was beautiful and actually still is since not much has melted where we live.
Have a fantastic day.
Be back soon.

While I was gone...

or at least away from the computer, here's how I've been spending my time...

Kraft Birdhouses

Chipboard Christmas Ornaments

A portion of my booth at The Gallery
Hannah and Madelyn
Had a great show at Winter Market last weekend and have been busy filling orders. Stocking my booth at The Gallery with lots of Christmas goodies has also kept me busy. Currently working on 5 different albums for customers, luckily only one has to be done by Christmas, in my spare time. I couldn't be happier!
Looking forward to the next 3 Saturdays which is Mistletoe Market at the Community Market and we have lots of new vendors in The Gallery. Hope you'll stop by and see me if you are in the area.
We are off to deliver a few orders today and shop for frames.
Hope you have a fantastic week!
Be back soon.

My booth...

It's hard to get good photos at a show with so much going on in the background.
Here are a couple from the show I did in Bedford this past weekend...

Doing something completely different for the next show, still playing around with several ideas.
Just heard that Winter Market will be featured on Living in the Heart of Virginia sometime next week and they have asked for one of my pieces. So exciting!
Lots to do, happy Friday.
Be back soon.

Packed and ready to go...

Attending the Arts, Crafts & More Extravaganza this weekend in Bedford. So very excited and a bit nervous that I'm ready to go with a day to spare. I keep thinking I've forgotten something...
Here are the details...Bedford Elementary School (just below the D-Day Memorial), Saturday 9am to 4pm and Sunday noon to 4pm. The gym, cafeteria and several hallways are lined with goodies of all kinds.
If you are in the area, stop by and say hi, I'll be set of in the cafeteria.
Have a fantastic weekend!

Good morning...

Still busy getting ready for the show I'm doing in November.
A few new items to share...

I am all about recycling, repurposing and's a fun project reusing some bottles. Any small bottles will work.

Child's Family Tree...these make wonderful gifts. I make them in a variety of colors, no 2 are alike.
Hope you are having a fantastic week.
Be back soon.

I feel so bad about being away from my blog but it's one of those things that gets put on the back burner when I get busy. My internet access is also very limited and I'm lucky if I can get online once or twice a week...long story.
September was a busy month. We welcomed a new granddaughter, Madelyn and we celebrated our granddaughter, Graylee's 2nd birthday. I've also been extremely busy with special orders and creating to keep my booth in the Gallery filled. Now I'm working on inventory for show I'm doing in November. No idle hands here.
A couple of photos I took last weekend to share...

Graylee, riding her favorite birthday gift.

Big brother, Brandon Lewis, showing her how it's done.
Oh, they grow up so fast.
Worked on a few challenges today, gave myself a break from work, and I'll share them soon.
Hope you have a great week.
Be back soon.

I just love these little creatures...

I am fascinated by hummingbirds and it took a lot of patience, something I'm short on, to get some of these photos but well worth it.
Hope you are having a wonderful week.
Be back soon.
