i did the annual holiday bazaar at our local brewery yesterday, and it made me realize how that's become such a ritual for me, a marker of the start of the holiday season. it always makes me very happy; it's such a fun event, so great to see so many wonderful local folks and catch up with friends i rarely see, plus meet new creative people, share ideas, listen to music, drink delicious beer, and get some great gifts.
i made a lot of stuff in preparation, knowing that whatever didn't sell there could come to indio with me for my show next month. (i will now begin intense production for that, as well as my return trip to san francisco!)
lots of lanterns
juniper (my little lefty) helped with those.
my favorite place to sell my work!
the girls are, of course very excited for christmas.
we've got the tree up,
and we've seen santa.
and today we finally got some snow!
we went for the first ski of the season.
i hope that you are all doing well and enjoying your december too. i will be sharing the work with you that i am making for my california ventures here, but do not be surprised to not see any new pieces in the etsy shop for a while. i think i will be quite consumed for the next 6 weeks or so!
