Happy Holidays Friends!

Merry Fishmas 2012024Hi there.  I hope you're all enjoying a wonderful holiday season full of friends, family and good food.  I for my part enjoyed all of the above and more!  It's been really nice to take some time off after the madness of the holiday rush and I've been making the most of it.  The Photographer returned from his world travels and it's been so wonderful to have him home.  We've spent time with friends and family, attended an End of the World Party, exchanged handmade gifts, eaten delicious food, and spent a lot of cozy time indoors.  We also managed to both get sick, which was a bummer. This weekend though we're heading up to  Lake Quinault Lodge in Olympic National Park for a few days to celebrate our one year anniversary, which should be really fun!  I'm looking forward to lots of reading, napping, hikes and sitting in front of a fireplace.  I hope you're all doing well, and I'll see you in the new year!

Holiday Open House 2012!

This weekend I had my annual Roots & Wings Jewelry Holiday Open House!  I had a blast/worked my butt off for the last few weeks, crafting close to 100 pieces of jewelry and whipping our house into holiday shape.  I am happy to say it was a total success!  Many folks dropped by, mulled wine and hot cider was drunk, tasty treats were enjoyed (courtesy of my amazing mother), and jewelry found new homes.  Thanks to everyone who came and made it great!  Enjoy the photos friends. _MG_8103_MG_7951_MG_7955_MG_8133_MG_7994_MG_8118_MG_8227_MG_8089_MG_8147
