A look at what's to come

As it always is, this time of year is nothing less than hectic. There have been some pretty tough days after the passing of my loving Papa, as well. I really owe a lot to my family, they are the most wonderful people in my life. My friends are amazing too. I feel closer than ever to all the people that I know and love.

....that being said, I've been completely inspired. What truly makes me happy is using my hands to make things for people, and that's just what I've been doing. With Patchwork Long Beach, UniqueLA, and the Hibbleton Sale (more info soon) coming up, my weekends from now until Christmas are all booked up with projects and shows.

So what's to come? The list goes on, but while my back has been out of commission for the past week, I've been on the couch almost every night with an ice pack and a bejeweled beginning of a knuckle ring. I think I started about 20 last night! I'm anticipating a lot of interest in them at UniqueLA since I can custom-size any ring at my booth, and they range in price from only $10-$25, much more affordable than the metal ones that other vendors will be selling.

These Lovelies were made using some bric-a-brac
donated to me from the one and only Gen Lewis

Jewel-toned jewels are my favorite! :)
I'll have plenty of them finished soon, too.

If you're planning on attending any of these holiday craft shows, but sure to let me know (send me an email at so I can tell you which booth number I'll be at! I have a limited number of free-wrist bands as well for UniqueLA so if you contact me soon, I could get you one. Hope everyone has a "Fan-dabi-dozy" weekend. (You can thank my scottish co-workers for that slang).
