Hockey Weekend!

K was asked to play in a hockey tournament this weekend, so we have spent the last 2 days in the arena instead of the studio...sure do miss watching her play, can't wait for hockey season to start up again! One game early tomorrow morning, then hopefully 2 on Sunday!

Still waiting for '52 Bracelets' to hit the news stand...can't wait to see it! I will have to check again tomorrow and see if B&N has it in yet!

Have a great weekend!

New Dog Tags!

I just love these new tags! They can be personalized on the front or back, and come with a brass insert around the hole, and a 26" copper ball chain. The connecting ring is Sterling. They look great in pairs! You can order them here: Thanks! I will be offering other pieces here as well until my new site is up and running!

Well we had a pretty productive day in the studio today! It is amazing what the two of us can get done when Brad is now my full-time employee....hopefully just for the time being! Just a quick note to let you know that I just dropped off new pieces at the Beadniks shop in the Mall of America! Shelley, the awesome owner of the shop, just posted this photo in her newsletter! Thanks Shelley!! Stop by if you get a chance, the store is pretty new, opened up last November, and it is awesome! They have a lot of really unique beads and components! Have a great night!

Bayfield Festival of Arts

We just returned home from a wonderful and much needed 4 days in Bayfield Wisconsin! The weather was beautiful, and the town is just magical....we love it there! The Festival was awesome again this year, with great artists, both new and returning. We met the gals from Francis Metal Works this year, they are located here in Brooklyn Park, MN and are the creators of these wonderful sculptures of ducks, pelicans, and water birds! Check them out at Needless to say we brought home a new little family of our own! Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth in Bayfield! We hope to be back up for Apple Fest this fall! Have a great week!

Art on the Lake

You can now find me on most Tuesday nights in Forest Lake in the park! Unless it is raining out we will be there from about 5-9. It is a really nice little venue, music, art, food, and a small farmer's market! Stop by and say 'HI'!
