Above images are of some hoops that I made this week while snuggled in my studio. Pretty little turquoise and green stones hang from heavy gauge steel wire that I hammered for texture. These earrings and many others are available for sale in my Etsy store.

This weekend I will be working on a painted, wooden advent calender for my niece, Sarah. I made one for my children years ago and my other nieces and nephews. I have to draw the pattern onto a piece of pine and cut it out with my scroll saw. Then I begin the fun part of painting and varnishing the calender. I will post a photo when I am done.
My daughter will be home in two weeks and I'm so excited! Christmas will begin for me when she returns.
Have a great weekend!

Eggnog is back on the shelves again for another holiday season and I've been drinking lots of coffee with the creamy, yummy goodness added to it. If you haven't tried it, you really should. :)

I had a very busy and excellent weekend. Renovations on the inside of the house and yard work on the outside filled my days. I look forward to having everything done so I can concentrate on my painting. I started a drawing for a painting last week and I haven't had a chance to work on it yet. Jewelry orders keep me busy in the studio and I'm putting the finishing touches on a doll I plan on submitting to a magazine.
Exciting news! Starbucks has their Christmas beverages on the menu again. I happily discovered this while at Chapters the other night. I've had two eggnog lattes already. Drinking a yummy holiday drink while browsing the books and magazines is one of my favorite things to do.

The above images are of copper wrapped 8mm bronze colored pearls. I will be listing these sweet little earrings in my Etsy store shortly.

Here are some photos of the hooked rug that I said I would post to show you what I am working on. I meet every Wednesday night at The Rooms with others to knit, hook, crochet or spin wool. I really look forward to these nights when we all sit around and work on our individual projects. Of course, there is lots of chatting and laughter as well. There is also a Tuesday night knitting group at Rocket Bakery in historic downtown St. John's where you can eat yummies and drink delicious beverages while you work.
Another couple of weeks and I should be finished and I'll have a warm comfy rug to stand on while I do my dishes. Lol!
Ricki, my sweet little kitty, had to plop herself down to take her bath as soon as I laid the rug on the floor to photograph. How cat-like of her.
