The Holidays are Here.

My husband and I were grocery shopping last night and realized it has begun: Christmas songs playing overhead, Halloween has been moved out to make way for ornaments, wrapping paper and middle isles of gift-giving ideas.  Grab some thermal underwear for everyone on your list!

I am starting in on the road to holiday art sales starting this weekend.  I belong to a handful of groups that keep me hopping and I decided to be involved in all of them this year.  This means a few rounds of tagging and re-tagging, finishing some last minute pieces, and where the heck did 3 of my favorite bangles go???  I will be tearing the house apart tonight.

Round 1: Ann Arbor Fiber Arts Guild Holiday Sale, Saturday November 14, 10am-4pm
I will have my latest beaded bangles and earrings including the tiny snowflake staple of the holidays.
