The Sunrise Keeps Me Humble

Day one
 Since I can't post any photos of the projects I'm working on, I thought you might enjoy seeing what I see every morning from my studio window...

Day two
Everything I'm working on is Christmas Gift Orders. If I posted photos, I could possibly expose surprises - because I'm pretty sure that everyone in the world looks at my blog to try and see what they are getting for Christmas! 

Day three - this time you can see the Canadians on the Pond
We are thrilled with the sunrises and sunsets we witness here at Two Dog Pond. It reminds me that no matter what I create and have a sense of pride in, it does not compare to the beauty of Nature. The sky is quite large here, so imagine the above sunrises covering 75% of what you see. It brings me to my knees.

Let The Holidays Begin

 Tomorrow, Saturday November 17, is the SJW Holiday Craft Show in Seward. It's the largest, best, show in the area. If you are within 2 counties of Seward, it's worth the trip over. I will be in the Harvest Hall (not the Ag Pavillion) with lots of jewelry. LOTS of jewelry. There's a sampling above. Bottom middle shows what a mess I'm making.
When I need to relax a bit, I turn to the torch and make beads. They end up in many of my designs.
I can't express enough how much I appreciate the support that my customers show me during this season.
Remember: It is time to start thinking about those ornaments - next week we'll discuss that a bit more.
Tomorrow's show is the only show I plan on doing this holiday season. It's just that grand.
