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

Around the House

As is most often the case these days, this afternoon found me at home working on new pieces, editing photos and packaging up orders.  As the holidays creep closer I am trying to gear up for what I hope will be a busy season.  This is my first holiday season selling jewelry full time so I'm not entirely sure what to expect.  I have a lot of plans though, and I'm excited to put them into action.  I am trying (and mostly succeeding) to keep a cool head and not get overwhelmed by all of the million "To-Do's" constantly running through my head.  The pile of lists on my desk is getting pretty ridiculous. Still, I couldn't be happier than when  I'm sitting at my desk in my bright, cozy home, golden evening light streaming in the window, creating something and getting paid for it.  How cool is that?!

The light was so pretty this evening I  thought I'd take a few photos.  Enjoy!
