three little ladies

In November I completed three little paintings for a show at a local gallery. 
My favorite one sold at the opening reception earlier this month, so I'm happy with that. 

It was a scary (but good) feeling to put some pieces in to a gallery, so I hope to do that more in 2015.

merry merry wishes

I spent a few minutes just playing with watercolors. It had been quite some time, so it was fun to play with simple lines and circles. Then I scanned them and did a bit of playing on the computer. Lots of fun, I am looking forward to more of this! 

 And here are a few gifts, wrapped using my favorite supplies: gold sharpie, brown paper, gold ribbon, and watercolor tags. Love, love, love them. Handmade wrapping paper is one of my favorite parts of Christmas!

 And that's it for my Christmas to-do list. The shopping, wrapping, and baking are the fun stuff can begin! Happy Holidays to all of you!

Little Candy Dishes

I fell in love with the Marbled Clay Ring Dishes on A Beautiful Mess. I figured they would be the perfect simple little handmade item to give to my coworkers for christmas.

And I filled them with some chocolate goodness. 
Wrapped them up, and added a handmade tag.

I'm back!

Well I apologize for the unplanned blogging hiatus. I went to Africa. I made some big changes in my life. I had to rethink if I wanted to continue blogging, and where exactly I am heading on this journey. I still don't have all the answers, but I have renewed focus. 
I've got some fun & exciting stuff planned for 2015. 

I've signed up for MATS Bootcamp starting January 5th and I'm looking forward to the assignments. 
I'm heading to Antarctica. 
I'm going to work on my technical skills with a pattern class at Pattern Observer.  

What are you excited for in the new year? 
I'll be back next Wednesday to show you the little Christmas packages I'm working on.
