And it's typical of me to wait until the last minute to order all my supplies for family gifts. I'm doing more simplistic pieces for everyone with the same theme. I don't want to give too much away in case they are reading this. I can't wait to show you girls the finished product after the holidays. How are your gifts coming along? Are any of you creating gifts this year?
I've also been doing a lot of thinking about changing my style or look of the the pieces I sell. After the first of the year I would like to go with a more simplistic modern look and may be a lot more in silver. I will still be using copper quite often but mostly for the pieces I make for myself or family. I still love copper and it won't be taken out completely. This will give me the flexibility to hopefully make some creative pieces without worrying about the cost of time involved and what it might take to sell a piece. I guess copper would turn into my hobby metal and silver would be for resale. We'll see how it goes!
I finally took a picture of the tree. We went overboard with the tree decorations this year. We even have a boxer ornament. My fur babies did their best to stay still while I snapped a few shots. Nothing like a nice bone to intice them to sit in front of the tree for me.
And we made Christmas cookies last week. I was on sugar overload that day with all the icing and sprinkles. We stuck a few in the freezer to stay fresh for Santa. Hope he likes them.
Lauren looks half asleep in this picture. She's probably coming down from a big sugar high while she stuffs more goodies into her mouth.
I wish you girls the best on your Christmas shopping. Hopefully none of you will get too stressed out. It is a crazy time of year. :)
