Welcome 2015...almost.  For all procrastinators - get a move on, less than 10 hours to accomplish anything left on your TO DO list for 2014! I can't find my list right now...so I think I'm calling it a day ;) As we bring another year to the close - it is bittersweet remembering all the wonderful things we leave behind, and yet joyful to let other things behind with higher hopes for the coming year. My wish for you all, and myself too:... Read More

S i l e n t   N i g h t ... Holy Night  ... All is Calm ... All is bright!  When I created 'Starlight', there was a peacefulness about this scene that resonated with me.  I could hear the silence of the night, I could feel the warmth that radiated from this cow, and I could see the rhythm of the breathe that spilled from this live giving creature like a machine that works relentlessly through the night.  I imagined the animals that...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..............fa, la, la, la, laaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!  The decent of December is truly upon us - holiday music now plays everywhere you go, snow and ice cover all of Minnesota, and yes - the Christmas decorations are up!  Following Thanksgiving day and hosting 30 at our house - I decided it would be a good idea to dig right into Christmas decorating, since I had a couple extra daughters home for the...

Give Thanks! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year! Family, fellowship, food and little stress in comparison to the frenzy of Christmas (which has seemingly overcome the world, stepping on its toes!). Maybe it's the origination of this holiday that resonates with me...when the Pilgrims gathered together to celebrate the bounty of a successful harvest. A farm kid my whole life, and now married to a farmer, I know the...

People spreading Good Will....that is what this time of year means to me!  I have had the 'shivers' twice this week, about two stories that involve Garth Brooks and embody 'good will'.  He was in concert this past weekend in Minneapolis - I thought long and hard about getting tickets to go...but figured I should probably be at my Open House.  I'm sure he missed me, but the concert went on! During the second show on Friday night, (which... Read More

We are on the clock, thankfully we have that extra hour to work with this week! Ha. The shop is hopping unpacking new giftware arriving today and more framed inventory coming in tonight!  The trees are up and the trimmings hung - the studio has transformed into the magical kingdom of Christmas once again!  Although it is an exciting time of the year - it is a bit of a mind warp.  Just 4 days ago, as we were decorating the shop for...

Happy Almost Halloween!  Without even knowing what date it is on the calendar, you could guess it is almost Halloween - orange lights and corn shocks  adorn homes in the neighborhood, pumpkins dot the countryside like beeping icons, and the newspapers are advertising all of the local costume contests and party events for this weekend!  I am preparing myself for our 13 year olds June birthday party - which never happened - and is now...
