I've been busily working like a madwoman on glittery ornaments to sell in both the shop and at the December show as fun little accessory items. They're crazy fun to make and I love how they look when displayed next to my art! They go hand-in-hand together. I think the little green buggers are my faves.Also been getting all prepped and ready for the holiday shopping craze to begin. This includes painting up bunches of peppermint-striped gift boxes for the show, which I still need to wrap in ribbon and slap labels onto, as well as gluing oodles of rings (50 to be precise) which will then be lacquered and glazed with mini prints attached...
I also scored this perfect little ceramic dish at a local Goodwill for a couple bucks. It's a bluish/greenish/turquoise color that looks AWESOME with red (one of my fave color combos and the colors of my show booth/table). So I can scratch "ring-bowl-holder-thingy" off the daunting "Need to Buy for Show & Holidays" list.
We have a storm a'brewing for tomorrow, so I've loaded up on candles and really *really* hope the power goes out. It's my day off from work this week so I plan on staying home with the fire going, painting, crafting, drinking tea, and cozying up on the couch listening to the wind.
