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!

Anatomy of glass colors

We are asked what creates the colors?   Here is a quick reference to give you some insight.   Interesting read!

Miss Wyoming

Jessie Allen the current Miss Wyoming was seen shopping in our booth at Frontier Mall.  I really enjoyed visiting with her, she is such a sweet girl.  Very easy to talk with.  She purchased a few items and was gracious enough to let me take a few photos.  A meet such interesting people!

Vessels and aromatherapy

As a lot of you know, I am quite a health nut.   I have been pretty ill at times in my life, so a few years ago I decided to make some changes.   I started out eliminating gluten then dairy products.  It took about 6 months but what a difference these changes made for me!  It has been significant.   We are eating clean and Denny and I are both seeing the benefits.

Time change

Dealing with how the body works during time changes.  We spend our winters in in Rocky Mountain time zone, I take a break and go to eastern time for a month then back to RMTZ, then we go to daylight savings time, then several back and forth trips into central to to RM,,, then the time changes again to daylight savings again.   I am currently waking around 4am raring to go, the ready to crash by 8:30.  I think my body wants to stay in one time zone for a while.   Need some normal zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's!

Holidays are coming

Sometimes I feel like a mad scientist!   Etching metals, torching for hours, electroforming and whatever else comes to mind!   Den and I are getting ready for the holiday run, we set up in Cheyenne Wy,  11/21/14.  I am making several styles of bucking horse jewelry and some adorable cowboy boot bracelets.  Lots is $10 items for those "I need a little something" type gifts.   Check the website as I will be adding items all month long.  Cool nights and no snow flying yet.  Life is good
