Falling in love.

Valentine's Day was always kinda big in my family. My mother would make a special meal and we'd come come from school with excitement to find the table filled with flowers, treats, and small gifts given with so much love. To this day I love Valentine's Day with all its sappiness, hearts, and exploding pinks and reds. In honor of the day, my mother and all my love for making I've started working on a few pieces for a Valentine's Shop Update. Stay tuned.




Thursday December 18th at 12noon CST 
(1pm Eastern, 11am Mountain, 10am Pacific)

Come see all the goods on Thursday! There are so many new pieces in the works... but because we've had so many dark days in a row here in Minneapolis, I haven't had much of a chance to take any photos. The light has been less than optimal, so you'll have to wait to see what will be! If the sun shines, or a least we have a bit brighter day tomorrow I'll make a couple photos of more pieces becoming... there's a whole lot on the work table today. XXJM

On the worktable... from late last night...



linen balls, small bears, bulbs, pompoms and little bits are starting to take shape.
The update will be next week! stay tuned for the details... (you'll know as soon as I do!)


slowly but surely

It's not fast, but it's happening. I stayed up extra late last night, with Christmas music on (yeah, I'm a total softy when it comes to Christmas- kinda can't get enough) and a big cup of warm tea, and I worked. It got late, and I wasn't sprightly this morning when my children were up at 6am, but it was really fun. The best part? This guy was here in the studio to greet me this morning along with a whole bunch of new things in the works... A good night indeed.
