Thank You & Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!
Like most people I am trying to figure out where 2011 went!! It was a whirlwind. A fun and exciting one though! Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, buys my creations, supports me at my shows, and encourages me along the way.
You have been with me through my new vegan journey and at my first vegan Christmas dinner last year!  This year was the second!

You cheered me on to finish UFO's, and there are some that still aren't done and some new ones for 2012!
I shared recipes with you from my vegan journey and I hope they were helpful to you. You encouraged me when I came up with new ideas and had art shows to attend.
You read my posts in February as I did a Creative Everyday Challenge. That was a great challenge and one I need to do again!

You have listened to my dog stories and looked at my agility trial pictures.

Watched me struggle and enjoy swaps. The last part of 2011 I didn't do any swaps but will be getting involved again in 2012....i missed some of those gals (and guys!)

In May I thought my life was slowing down, but that wasn't so, things got really busy around the house, and I really slacked off from my blogging. But during that time my husband and I have been working on a classroom for me to start teaching quilting again, we built a guest cottage and a storage shed and dealt with Hurricane Irene.

You also cheered me on with my Paint Party Fridays, which I also miss and want to start doing again. Bead Table Wednesdays were fun and kept me motivated.
You listened to my stories about my online classes and encouraged me with my new lampworking skills.

So thank you, thank you, thank you!  Thank you for your ear (or your eyes since you are reading!), and I hope you will continue to follow my creative journey into 2012.

In 2012 I want to keep creating and get all these new ideas out of my head!
Of course finish some more UFO's; do more pottery {i have a potter's wheel again ~ woohoo!}, continue to improve my lampworking skills, make more jewelry components from ceramic clay and do lots more work with Precious Metal Clay. I just love that stuff and when I work with it I always ask myself why I don't work with it more!

Here are a few new pieces that I finished today.....
The textured circles on these earrings were made from Precious Metal Clay, and have my glass headpins hanging from them.


Potcake Necklace.......
Potcakes are our local mixed breed and there are many strays.  When I make these pendants I give $20 to help the animals of Abaco.


Have a happy, healthy, exciting and creative 2012!
