just listed these earrings on etsy. have been experimenting with some steel bits i came across...think they are involved in plumbing somehow? not sure, but they are fun. made a bracelet and necklace to go with them, so check back!
okay, how geeky are we? on a recent trip to the town of Vulcan, here in sunny Alberta, we just couldn't resist a photo op with the Enterprise :) that's me and my 7 year old trying to hold up the vulcan greeting!
the kids were painting birdhouses for the yard the other day and i decided to jump in and dabble a bit. these are some wood pendants that i finished that night. they haven't been drilled or clear-coated yet. its not even a decent photo since i just scanned them, but here they are.
when i mention that i live in canada, people usually comment on the frozen north, extreme cold, snow etc. no one thinks that it really gets hot here...wrong! today is 26C and tomorrow will be 30 and saturday will be 34. which translates to about 80F, 86, and 93! this may not seem all that hot to some of you, but think 93 and no air conditioning!!! or rather, canadian air conditioning which is actually a crappy little ocsillating fan that doesn't ocsillate anymore. we are melting! here's hoping for milder weather soon!
well as usual, i start off with the best of intentions to keep up with my blog and then promptly forget about it. business is booming and life is incredibly busy. and sadly my blog keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the long list of things to do. since moving into our lovely new home, it has been a steady stream of visitors and we are having a great time! currently, it is time for the calgary stampede here and we are loving watching the fireworks every night from our rooftop deck. had my spring show in june and it was my best show ever! blew the fall show out of the water, which was gratifying, especially since it was without holiday sales. here are a few of the new pieces that showcased there and will hopefully migrate (miraculously) to the website! once again, signing off and hoping to get here more regularly. cheers!
