Last week was a bit quiet with blogging, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t busy! I’ve been working on lots of projects, and it’s always satisfying to get things finished and sent off to where they need to be. I’m also trying to take it a *little* easy and enjoy the slowness of January. It’s such a perfect time for reflection and taking inventory on myself and on my business. I’m hopeful about this year, in many new and different ways.
I’ve also been indulging in some knitting which I’ve really enjoyed! This weekend I attended a baby shower for a girl I’ve known since we were 12 years old! And since I have a particular love for babies in gnome hats, I made this little pointy stocking hat out of some beautiful soft teal colored yarn and baby leg warmers to match. I also gave her a red gnome bonnet I made a few weeks ago. I love knitting for little ones who can’t roll their eyes and go “oh mom!” yet, haha!
And on the painting front, I made this large “Scandinavian style” bride for an upcoming gallery show. I am happy to report that I will be hanging many of my original pieces at Shades of Brown Coffee and Art on Brookside in Tulsa, Okla. next month for all of February. I’ve done two previous gallery shows there and it’s always lots of fun. They also make amazing coffee and the whole place just has a great vibe to it. Maybe I’ll see you there? Have a good week, my friends!~ Heather
