I took a little break this afternoon to be the marriage officiant (yes, I am official, thanks to Universal Ministries dot com!) for one of my oldest friends(Hannah) and her love, (and my new friend, Link). It was great! I wept as per usual when speaking in public, and I think I might have surprised Hannah with how much thought I put into my speech. I found a lovely poem by Nikki Giovanni that really reminded me of them. The lovely witnesses were Jeremy, Josie, and Jasper! (ooo, triple J's, that's got to be good luck!)
Earlier this winter I was given the task of reworking Hannah's old wedding ring into two new rings for them, it was very fun, and I think it turned out pretty well (if I do say so myself!).

I love doing holiday windows... so much fun! I especially like when I get to combine tiny tinsel trees, tiny flocked deer, and tiny strawberry shortcake(!). These little deer are having a feast in the light of the Eiffel Tower which a lovely customer gave me and I stuffed with purple lights.

Oh yes, my parents have been very busy this holiday season! This is our newest collaboration, earring holders. Re-purposed Barnwood (and my old maple futon frame, first piece of furniture I ever bought, right here!) along with super cool drawer pulls for hanging necklaces or bracelets or rings on. They are filled with strong screen that allows you to hook many many pairs of earrings onto. Best of all, you get to see what earrings you have, rather than sorting through dishes or jewelry boxes.
