Back In Action!

Has it really been over a month and a half since I last blogged?!  I guess so!

Well, if anyone has been wondering what I've been up to, this is it.

My sister-in-law and I did two holiday shows together.  The first one was pretty uneventful for both of us, but the second one was wonderful!  We did a private jewelry party for a friend and it ended up being very successful for us.  On top of that, it was a lot of fun!

After the shows, I tried to focus on my full time job and life at home.  It was my first married Christmas with my husband!  We enjoyed a lazy holiday break together and got around to cleaning out some more of our cluttered basement.  We've got a long way to go, but made great progress.

I cleaned out my studio, got a small amount of work done....and then I did it.  I finally ordered an enameling kiln!  I'm so excited to start experimenting with it!  I took an enameling class in college, and fell in love with it.  I hope I get plenty of use out of this investment!  The image below is the model I ordered.

I'm so glad to have you back at the blog. Thanks for the Christmas card-very busy this Christmas with Bill's son, wife and two boys here with us-then a mini trip to see a college friend...then back to work. Excited for you-enamel jewelry is neat-My daughter Rachel loves it and owns a few pieces. Have fun!!!

I so want to try enameling but it seems a little daunting.
