Rambling

I am still obsessed with making different animals.  I am so close to what I want to create.  This has been months in progress.   New items I have been working on , mixed metal hair assessories, dogs and silver work.  Been browsing tool catalogues, new Wish list: a shot plate, dies, rolling mill and a hydraulic press. There are so many ideas floating around in my head, I am not producing much.  I think I am just taking more time with my pieces.

Mojo

I have been trying to get back into the groove again.  I have been doing more metal work and incorporate it into my glass work.  It is difficult getting your mojo back when ya aren't busy with shows and under pressure. I am doing nice work, just not a lot of it.  The internet has been performing well for us. We will keep at it, I am hoping this will be a key for us getting off the road.  Everything takes time, this avenue has been a learning experience.

Wildlife a new challenge

So,,, I am obsessed with working on wildlife pendants.  What a challenge! Blending, colors, design , heat control.,I have put them in the gallery pages to keep track of my progress.   I can find things I like and don't like in each piece.      I have these gorgeous visions in my mind of what I want them to look like, they just aren't there yet.  Glass has been an adventure and always new challenges for me.     I Love my job!!

Holidays are coming soon

Here it is, the end of October and I am stressing.  In a little less than a month we will be setting up at Frontier Mall in Cheyenne, Wy.   Are we going to have enough product?, are we making things people would like?,,, I have been more or less playing for a month, blowing a few ornaments, working on little critters... A lot of experimentation..It is past time to knuckle down and get ready.   Lot's of "Steamboat"  jewlelry,  (wyo logo), , did  I tell you I made the sweetest little snowman the other day?

Summer is coming to an end

Another summer season of outdoor shows is coming to an end.  Two shows left, a break until we go to the mall in Cheyenne for the Christmas run.  I am doing quite a bit more metal work, trying to incorporate my glass when suitable.   We have been having several end of the season gatherings with our craft show friends.   It is so nice when we are away from home we have these special times.  It has been a good year, we thank all those that come in to our booth and support us year after year.

August

Well, I have been blowing ton's of these little aromatherapy bottles.  Plant Therapy is launching a new handmade website on September 1st.   I will be submitting two different styles up for sale on their site.   We are excited for this opportunity

Summer shows

We are off and running!  Aberdeen SD "Art in the Park" and Mandan Rodeo Days are under our belts, this week we are heading to Brookings "Art in the Park".., It is a busy and exciting time for us.  We have worked all winter, it is awesome to see what customers think of our newest creations!  Check our calendar for places and dates of shows we will be showing at. Have a great summer!

 

Musings

Here it is the middle of May.   We have been busy creating, getting everything ready for outdoor shows.  We also use this dormant time to to our doctoring, hopefully nothing serious crops up.

May

We will not be showing the month of May in Minot this year.  I am dealing with some unavoidable medical issues, have to take care of myself for awhile.  We hope to be back next year.  If you are looking for something that is not on our website, contact us as our inventory is extensive.  My apolagies to our loyal customers..see you on the art faire circuit!
