Bucktown Show Recap

My last show for the season was the Bucktown Holiday ArtShow. As always, this show was a lot of fun and featured many creative artists. I enjoyed making new friends and catching up with the regulars. Day One was filled with visiting friends and some new admirers. I enjoyed watching what people gravitated to in […]

Countdown to Christmas

Fair season is over for me, but shopping is still allowed in these 10 days before Christmas. I just posted the angels and frosties I have in stock on my Facebook page. You can see individual photos of the angels here. Reds and Greens: My remaining frosties have individual photos here. I also still have a […]

Ornament Factory

Since sending off ornaments to 4 boutiques, my own supply has been depleted. So for the Irish American Heritage Center’s Christmas Bazaar I had to go back into the studio. I reviewed some Irish Christmas carols, and found my favorite on the list. Then I realized my friends had requested rainbow safety pin angels, and […]

Least Favorite Christmas Songs

Believe it or not, I incorporate lyrics of holiday tunes that grate on me, because I know they are popular. We can’t get around Feliz Navidad during the holiday season. I enjoyed it the first time I heard it, but now it seems to be everywhere. My younger brother is an established drummer in the […]

It’s custom order time!

’Tis the season to place orders, falalalalaa-lala-lala. My waxed ornament inventory went from this: to this during the Wilder Mansion Holiday Market. I am thrilled the angels and frosties are gaining popularity, but for you regulars it means that if you want to gift these to your loved ones, you need to contact me now. […]

Bucktown Holiday ArtShow

I’m busy preparing for the Bucktown Holiday Fair this coming weekend. The fun begins at noon and goes until 5 p.m. December 13 and 14. More than 100 artists will exhibit and I enjoyed the creativity last year’s show featured. There is a silent auction, a raffle, and delicious food and drink will be offered. […]

Ornaments Galore

Holiday season is official now, and I am busy making custom orders. I am also replenishing the angel and frosty supplies of ornaments that found new homes Thanksgiving week. My inventory numbers broke the 100 mark recently. On Friday I will have my entire inventory at the ADA Holiday Fair from 10 a.m. to  2 […]

Jigging Frosties

My offline life is speeding up so the online blog is getting off-schedule. Here’s a peek at what pulls me away from the computer these days. In mid-October I was able to purchase Brenda Schweder’s Now That’s A Jig Starter Kit, which I eagerly anticipated. I consulted with Brenda via email on the various Rounds […]

Christmas Holiday

Today the remaining pieces from the EXPO are coming back home, and then I am taking a holiday break. While I will be tempted to write up blog posts for the remainder of the year, I am going to allow for time to reflect and not post anything until the new year. This will help […]

Fun factory

It’s been a veritable factory in here the past few weeks as I created ornaments for fairs, friends, families and boutiques, and sprinkled in some new pendants and earrings to keep the fingers nimble. The start is always cutting and prepping the wire (sanding off the oily residue) and hammering it into a straight line […]
