Working on New Designs

Busy in the studio today creating, creating, creating! Finally, back to work...

Getting perfect natural light is proving the biggest challenge. We have only a few windows in this dark little cabin. The fresh snow helps reflect some light into the house. I can't wait for spring sunshine, though.

Well, here's a look at a few items soon to be in the shop:

My poor toddler had to have dental surgery today. Basically, early teeth grinding led to my sweetie needing to have all four upper teeth extracted. What I thought would be my greatest fear turned out for the best as she will now be fitted with a temporary bridge until her adult teeth come in. Long story short, I recorded a video of her a few hours after surgery, toothless, trying to find hidden dinosaur bones in an egg. The egg was a gift from her aunt and uncle. She is obsessed with dinosaurs at the moment and this egg offered a welcome distraction from the after surgery pain. She is SO CUTE without front teeth. I will enjoy the next two weeks with my toothless doll. Enjoy a glimpse into my mamahood.

Also, that is not my real voice. I don't know what happens to your voice when you give birth, but it is something strange. I really am an adult.

This is a video my friend, Amanda, shared of the tsunami on the southern coast of Oregon today. Very tragic and only a teeny fraction of the damage done in other parts of the world. This harbor is close to where I used to live. My heart is sad.
