’Tis the season….

It’s hard to believe Christmas is only 5 weeks away! Where did the year go?

It’s silly season for me now – I’m in 5 shows between now and Christmas (Upcoming shows all listed under upcoming shows, obviously!) plus Christmas decoration workshops! If you are looking for that elusive Christmas gift, check out the gallery page for clocks, yarn bowls and more.

​So have great holiday season and see you in 2017!
