I know I should be more professional about such things...

But...  WOOHOO!!

I had my best day ever  in the shop today and it felt really good. Thank you, thank you to my wonderful supporters out there. You rock my world!

Now I must get my nose to the grindstone and get my little shop restocked!

On that note, I did add this to the shop late last night:

White jade and sterling. Strung on a simple sterling bead chain to keep it on the affordable side.

Despite the fact that school starts next week (well, officially it starts tomorrow but I don't have classes on Fridays this semester), I will be spending extra time in the studio over the next few weeks so I can get some new items made and listed for you (and for me, because let's be honest, I do this for me). So keep an eye on the blog and my facebook page for news about shop updates.

I also wanted to take a little blog space to rave about my incredibly talented family. I mentioned after Christmas that my 8 year old daughter, Aidan, had taken up sewing and was proving to be quite the prodigy? Well, here are a few of her creations:

Grandparents, commence the oohing and aahing!

And not to be upstaged by our 8 year old, the Foxy one has been stoking her creative fire as well! She took a printmaking class over the fall, and our darling feline Spooky proved to be the perfect screenprinting subject. Here he is at Stephanie's art show debut:

And this one, which she just made for fun at home, is going in my studio:

Yep. My family's pretty darn awesome.

I'll be back again with more soon. I finally replaced my 5 year old laptop, so picture editing and blogging won't be such a  time suck! Woohoo!

And happy Friday (in 10 minutes CST!)

    You deserve to be proud of yourself and your family, I know I am! What a talented bunch. Can't wait to see what Alice will contribute!

  2. Wow. I love the necklace and Foxy's screenprints of your cat but OMG, i can't believe your 8year old daughter stitched those toys! They are brilliant and i can def see her future as a designer taking shape right here! I can barely sew a button on a shirt so am hugely impressed!

  3. I know, it's quite something, isn't it? Now I need to find her someone who knows what they're doing to teach her from here. She's surpassed my ability to guide her!
