I'm sorry if I've been quiet over here.  I have not felt like posting much of anything since the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook.  It breaks my heart for everyone who lost someone, and as a mom I just can't imagine it.  As I watch the news and see all those little faces who are the same age as my oldest, everything else seems so superficial and unimportant.  I hug my children a little tighter every night and pray I never have to know what that kind of loss feels like.

I am just trying to cram in as much work as possible before school lets out for Xmas break. A lovely couple of weeks where I justify that wine during the day is an absolute necessity!
So, out of these girls, two will be a commission, some more for the Blue Gallery, and also a special little something that Mindy Bledsoe and I will be working on.  Stay tuned!

Thanks to Shreveport Times and Devin White for doing a feature on us today!  It was so nice having ya'll over, and we loved taking all the pictures.  And the kids really enjoyed pretending the menorah was actual reindeer antlers. Which is why they'll never get to hold it again.  Not pictured: Ginormous tug of war fight over antlers.

Happy Birthday today sweet Liam! 

This past weekend we had an Angry Birds party.  Crafts were made and Twister was played, and everyone had a grand time.  I just can't believe it's been 6 years!

Because I have nothing better to do than to obsess over what my house looks like for the holidays, I went to Lowe's with my friend Mad and picked up some free Xmas tree clippings.  Then I arranged them all over the house, stared for a long time, rearranged them, and so on. 

If you are too lazy for this process or actually have better things to do than stare at pine needles, go buy this wonderful candle
