We were sooo busy , well I was trying to get everything ready for Christmas. It wAs a huge success! Had my family over on Christmas Day and audrey got to spend some great quality time with her cousins, it was wonderful. My 90 yr old grandma came, and although she kept wanting to take the dog toys home, I think she had a great time!
Audrey and Uncle Chris
Lucy even got presents from Santa!
Aquamarine,garnet pearl necklace and earrings I made of my mom
I hoped and prayed when my daughter was little that she would excel and love the arts.....
and it turned out she LOVES to be creative!!!!! I am so blessed!!!!
She not only loves anything crafty but she is good at it too!
But then I am her mother and my opinion is biased ;)
I enjoy everything she creates, and feel I had to share this with the world ;)
We were over at my friends the other day and he set up a project for her to do, a canvas, a set of acrylic paints and an assortment of brushes! He asked her if she would create him a Christmas picture that he could hang in a frame on the wall.
Without hesitation she eagerly accepted the offer and away she went!
What I absolutely love about children and their artwork is they work without an inner critic,,without hesitation! If we could only keep that freedom as we grow older and just simply create!
and here is her finished painting,,,, OH how I love it, and my friend was so pleased he is going to use her artwork for his Christmas cards next year. ;)
He immediately framed and hung it (which she thought was pretty darn cool)
I have been having so much fun showing my jewelry. For the longest time I just made it for myself and for my friends, but actually selling it is so rewarding! Not only do i love it when pieces that are dear to me sell, but I love being able to connect with people ;).
i do however have to say if it wouldn't of been for a few VERY supportive people in my life, (always including my mom ;) and this definitely means you Ann! ) I may not have had the courage to step up and put myself out there like i did. I have learned so much and feel so blessed to have such wonderful, supportive and encouraging people in my life!
I am one lucky girl!
Here are a few pictures of some of the pieces I had for sale, some have sold and some I still have, so if anyone happens to be interested please don't hesitate to reach me ;)
I am finally doing it... I am putting myself out there.. I figured.. why the hell not... what do I have to loose??.. so with a little inspiration and A LOT of help from friends I am having...
My FIRST ever "trunk show" :)
A little nervous,, but excited too.. it should be fun!
My friend so graciously let me use her salon space to have it at rather than my home.. and with her being "crafty" as well she has decided to put her crafts up for sale as well! It may.. if all goes well turn into an annual event :)
so without further adue.. here is the info...
p.s. please come.. even if its to have some eats or to say hello! :)
Lately I am loving vintage circus images, and was doing a search for them and ran across this website, The Graphics Fairy, I cannot wait to have a little more time to search her website for more images! :)
