An Artist's Life is full of Surprises!

When I thought I was all done with prep for my upcoming wholesale show this weekend, I decide to add another product! I've been toying with a flower pendant idea for a month or so now but have been waiting for the bails I've ordered for them also. Well, they arrived this week and I decided to try them out.

Lo and behold, I love the results! And realized they should also be added to my wholesale lines for this upcoming Spring. I don't do retail shows till the Christmas season, so they have to offered my shops for sale. I worked frantically this week and came up with 6 colour patterns for my clients to choose from and in 2 styles, a simple, origami inspired petal and a funky, frilly petal one! I always ask myself why I do this to myself, but I really can't control how my creativity works. It doesn't understand deadlines much.

New Product...Winestoppers!

With an upcoming wholesale show, I wanted to make a new product for it. These came to me through quite a few requests I received during the christmas craft show season. I had realized if I had more frog and turtle products, I would've sold them in a heartbeat! So, with that thought and the lamps I made....these pond-themed winestoppers were created! I had alot of fun with these.
