I am back home now, resting in my jammies today. Waiting for Lovin' Man to come home from conferences in Chicago. Looks like a good day for staying in, and relaxing...but is that what we will do? We shall see!

I did the canvases first...but then thought to myself, "Self, I wonder if you could achieve the same effect with your glass paints, on glass items." The answer is yes I can, however it requires more patience, as these paints remain sticky far longer...so I have to wait a bit before layering more colors on.
And below, you see some more patchwork hearts I've been sewing up, and flower pins that are in progress. Wishing you all a colorful, spunky holiday season! More news to come soon! Cheers!

Last Thursday evening, I hosted "Queen for the Evening" in the studio, where I was joined by 4 lovely ladies, Jane, Braden, Megan and Mary Ella. We had a great time embellishing our crowns and crafting the perfect magic wand for all of our upcoming decrees that must be brought forth. Sorry to say, I didn't get any pics of the ladies actually wearing the crowns...we ended up sizing them at the last minute, and then scarfed down some cupcakes! Eeeep! Thank you all for joining me....it was great! Schedule your own Queen for the Evening party by calling us at the store!

Last weekend, we sold Dreaming Bear goodies at the Kansas City Junior League's Holiday Gift Mart! It was a great event! Lots of fun to meet so many new friends! Here are some pics of what our booth looked like before we sold lots of stuff! And I was worried about having enough! Ha! We could barely fit it all in! Top sellers this show were bookmarks, moustaches on a stick, and lazy susans! Time to get back to work making more!
