pumpkin patch time

Ok, I am just catching up on my Halloween postings right now.... so there's going to be a bunch of Halloween themed posts today and tomorrow. This past weekend we went to the pumpkin patch.... well, this was actually our second trip... the first trip (as you can see from the bottom pic) there was quite a bit of rain so it was a rather short and soggy one. Second time faired much better, so I was able to get some more snaps of all the decorated jack-o-lanterns. I will post more photos soon of our decorated house and, of course, Jasper's Halloween costume!

little pieces

About one month to go until my first holiday show of the year (yes, it is in early November!), so I am in production mode now. I still am finding it a bit of a guessing game trying to figure out how much of each style to make for the accessories for each of the shows... will this ever get easier to predict?! Agh! Here is a sneak peek of the laser cut sheet (lots of brooches and earrings that you see there)... next step, assembly!

bye bye birdie... time for a sale!

I love wood burning, but alas it has come time for me to retire my little wood burned panels. I have been making them for years, but now I am shifting focus on to my laser cutting items and collages. So what to do with the panels I have left in stock?.... have a sale! All wood burned panels small and large are now 50% off! Check out the sale here!

falling leaves

The leaves are changing colours all around our neighbourhood... and it is making for some nice autumn walks... well, ok... except for the rainy wet weather... that dampens it a little bit. Still makes for nice snapshots though! Happy Monday!

neglectful me

Ok, I have been a very bad neglectful blogger. This past week just flew by without a post... eek! There was some reasoning to it... I had a birthday (hooray!), and then this past weekend was Thanksgiving up here in Canada, so it has been back to back feasting and family visits. And now it is officially catch up time - time to catch up on the blog, work, and craft making for the upcoming shows... so much to do, so little time!

how studly

I have been working on some new styles of earrings for the upcoming holiday season... and ta-da... here is a peek at two of them, well technically four since they are in pairs, hee-hee. Mini elephants and mini squirrels are a new addition to the other bamboo studs in the collection. Hmmm... so I guess I could technically call them studly elephants and squirrels. ;)
