Happy New Year!

Here are some new little silver things i've been sawing out.. still getting my work area fixed up, it is very exciting~

Wow, i cannot believe this year is over! i have been singing Ella Fitzgerald's version of "what are you doing new years eve" to myself all day.... and to answer her question, i'm going to get some of my favorite wine (Il Muscato), heat up some lentil soup i made this morning, and snuggle on the couch with Jeremy and watch season 2 of the Office (we are hooked!) and drink our wine til midnight! fantastic!!!

I have had a really wonderful year.... this morning i found myself looking fondly back at all the great aspects of my life and how well the store has been doing... cant' wait to see what will happen next year!!

Happy Happy Holidays!!!

I had the most lovely day today! it started with re-discovering a christmas gift from my dear friend in my box of wrapping paper where i had cleverly stored it ;) then all my shop neighbors came by to wish me happy holidays and bring me treats--soooo nice. and then most of my favorite customers came in and told me how much they loved my shop. it was so re-affirming and lovely. thank you!

through a glass brightly

i am remiss for not posting these great photos that hannah took at John and Elizabeth's wedding party. we made some honey almond goatsmilk soaps for their favors, and i got to do some invitation labeling. they very nicely envited me along too. it was a beautiful ceremony, fantastic local food, beautiful hammered dulcimer music in the background... just great!

these photos are of jasper looking very pimp-ish in a snazzy herringbone jacket, Neko (pj's son) one of hannah and pj (looking unusually earnest) and one of yours truly!

new product???

check out these new awesome little ipod/digital camera holders i made!! the eiffel tower one was made entirely out of thrift shop sweaters that i felted up and cut up. the other one features some great thread from a wonderful trip to Napa CA with my good buddy Ariel and some cool buttons from the habitat store. i'm very pleased with them!
