The gift of time...

Today my Mom and I made this wreath.

We bent in a circle and then spray painted a coat hanger white and got sandwhich bags.

You tie them onto the coat hanger.

And then presto! You have a winter wonderland wreath!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. For the Holidays I've tried hard to buy handmade gifts or make the gifts I give. I want to encourage you to do that or buy local, or just give the gift of spending time with someone you care about. Quality time with those you love is priceless.

Baby Hats Galore!

Lately many of my friends have been having babies so I've been making little baby sized hats! I have a round knitting loom that I use, there are a couple different paterns I have tried as well. It's a fun shift from all the metalwork I do.

Eagle's Nest

Earlier this year we went to the Raptor Center at Lorain County Metro Parks. We sponsored a Peregrine Falcon named Havoc. I was going through some older photos and this one is of me in front of an Eagle's nest. How wicked is that nest?

Joe and I have been really busy. Just today I went to a Ohio Jewelry & Metals Guild meeting at Bead Q in Chagrin Falls, then we went over to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland to a fantastic art show. I'll be sharing some of the artists work with you soon.

We've been busy going to parties and throwing parties. Making tasty food, and busy taking classes here and there! Luckily there isn't much going on in December because I need a break! Hope you are having a fantastic weekend.

Another lesson on Fighting Gravity!

I had my second plane flying lesson two weeks ago and it was fantastic. I went to Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland Ohio.

These are the many dials I had to read to make sure all was well while flying.

The view was fantastic!

I hope to fly more, maybe even earn my license but that won't happen this year. I've had a really busy couple of weeks. Things should slow down soon. I have been working on jewelry. Remaking a bracelet I lost, my affirmation bracelet. Photos to come soon!

Is that an Owl?

While taking pictures in the woods I thought I saw an owl in the hole of a tree.

Turns out it is just the way the tree is. A wooden owl!
