Fall Shows Begin Soon!

Nativity & Trees on Wood

My fall show line-up is set to begin on Saturday, September 9th at the Whistle Stop in Elkhorn. It is appropriately called Shopkeeper and Friends Antique & Artisan Market. This is the first one I have participated in during the fall season. I have gone there earlier in the year, but I am excited to see fall creations and decor. I hope you can join us!


New Beads for New Etsy Banner

Dipped Drop Beads that will be new additions to my ETSY Shop soon

Dipped Drop Beads that will be new additions to my ETSY Shop soon

These are the some of my new dipped drop beads that I have created from clay using a new glazing technique. I love the way they turned out mostly because I can choose from a number of enamel colors for the torched enamel beads that they will be paired with for earrings.

I will have some of these at my spring shows shown as Milestone Markers on the left column of this blog as well as the Omaha “Art Spot” that I am involved with – the Smiling Turtle.

Here is a link to my ETSY SHOPwhere I will sell these beads as components for your own DIY jewelry creations! I hope to photograph and post them for sale within the next week.

Finished items soon! You can see a pair of finished earrings on my Facebook page post from February 22, 2015 if you click here: MY FACEBOOK PAGE


Hurray! Phase 2: Clay Studio Organization Complete

So… Phase 2 is complete which is good news. However, I did not anticipate a Phase 3 would be necessary. Next weekend, I will have to go over existing inventory for the upcoming selling season. My pricing allows people to purchase one-of-a-kind handmade art at a reasonable price – (which has always been part of my business philosophy.) So…fortunately, the remaining inventory will not take long to organize. This has not always been the case, so I am grateful for 2014!

Gotta get those taxes started! The Phase 3 will begin next Saturday and will be to organize my inventory and wrap my mind around my display plan for my home show in May, Handmade on Charles Street. This will be the 4th Annual Handmade on Charles Street Home Boutique! I can hardly believe it! Spring is just around the corner… really…

Have a great week!
