Holiday Shop is ready!

I'm happy to say my holiday shop is ready to roll.  It's a small collection of a few things you've seen and a few new pieces - I hope you have a moment to look around.

On December 6, Pure Bliss Cupcakes in Pierre has graciously allowed me to spend the morning with  my holiday pieces.  I'll have gift tags, notebooks, notecards, and a small selection of repurposed holiday wood pieces, as well as a few other pieces from my studio space.  I would love to see you there! For me, as much as anything, it's an opportunity to talk about artwork and drink some delicious coffee with some great people.  I hope you can pop in to say hi!

In the meantime, here's a peek at what I've been working on.  And, as always, my heartfelt thanks for tagging along with me. I hope you can join me for coffee on the 6th!


Nope, not a holiday piece. But, I've been circling around this phrase for months.  It's so simple and yet, for me anyway, so easy to forget.  To truly be who you are and who you're called to be in every dimension of life.  

This piece is an OLD piece of wood.  There is a weathered strap of leather on the bottom left that I used to tie baker's twine and small clothespins to.  It would be perfect for hanging small reminders, photos, spelling lists ....

A small selection of holiday pieces.  This year, simplicity was my goal. And winter berries, apparently.

This line from Heschel came to me from an artistic mentor's holiday card years back.  I found it so reassuring and focusing.

And finally, my first go at holiday gift cards.  2 of each design in a pack of 6.  I think my favorite is "For all the kindness you share - Cheers!" It's celebratory, multipurpose, and most importantly a reciprocation of kindness.  Plus it's got shimmer. Who can say no to shimmer? Seriously.
