The Holidays at our Home!

I said at the beginning of this year, that this year was going to be eventful for me, and boy has it ever!! We have a new addition in our family and because of this, our Holiday Season has started off Hectic and Exciting. We have said goodbye to our traditional quiet Holiday setting, and have jumped on the loud, crazy, unplanned Holiday wagon, and we are loving every minute of it. Whatever you are doing for the Holidays, I so hope that you too are having a wonderful fun time! Happy Holiday Season!

Things I like to make...


Were I create, my lampwork studio!

I had a conversation with my former metals instructor last night about what some people, who make jewelry like to call themselves.. and one of the words that really stood out to me was "Maker" I just love that word... so I thought today I would share a very special place in my heart, a place that allows me to become whatever "Maker" I want to be...

My Studio, my Making Pace!

Good morning 2012

I had a beautiful peaceful bike ride this morning, a much different experience from my normal bike rides, when I have a neighbor's dog or two chasing me down the street trying to nip at my ankles, and I am starting to think that this truly is the first day of a beautiful year.

I'm calling 2012 my year of Exploration, and although, I'm not much of a blog writer, this year I plan to post my exploration adventures along the way!

Good morning 2012 are you ready?
