Adding Color To My Winter World

 I've been adding color to my world. For a mostly black, brown, gray and white person - that's huge.
I'm getting better at the wrap bracelets... lots of color there.
 Turquoise for Judy, my Hooker friend.
 Dyed jade with a sweet little bird pendant made by Sue Laupp of Star Spirit Studio.
 Etched bullets for the Red Path Gallery.
 Rainbow Makers for your Inner Rainbow Catcher
I LOVE working with beveled glass.

 More etched bullets.
 A tiny book I made with etched copper and one of my Dad's German books... inspired by the fabulous Stephanie Lee.

Construction Progress

 It's hard to believe that cement can be poured in the bitter cold, but evidently it can. This was weeks ago, and it's still freakishly cold.
 Jewelry production is slow due to ummm, well, life.. but I did manage to get a few pieces to the gallery and have a few more to take over.
I am a member of The Cross Makers of Seward - a group of volunteer retired guys (and me) that make palm crosses. I maintain the etsy shop and do the shipping. There was an article in Thrivent Magazine that went out to 3 million readers. Needless to say, I turned into a Shipping Department overnight last November. Today I have just 105 crosses to ship out...
Sister Bee rescued a Husky Mix Puppy and named her Merci. They are living together at La Ruche while Bonnie is remodeling her mansion into a B&B.
I love puppy pictures.
