magical things

The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper ~ Bertrand Russell


I’m feeling grateful to contribute to the magical things of this world with the simple love and beauty I have to share ❤

busy for bazaar

What a busy and productive couple of weeks it has been, on and off the worktable!

I’m excited to announce I’ll be taking part in the Wishkah School’s PTO Bazaar, so I’ve been working on new items inspired by the simple beauty of nature and the joy of sharing love with others. This will give me an opportunity to see what people are interested in and help direct my future creations. I’m planning to use leftover items to start a base for an Etsy store, which I hope to have ready by Thanksgiving. . . more details, soon!

Mr. Husband and I have been working around the house and yard to get things ready for Rain Season, aka Winter. . . putting gardens and potted plants to bed, harvesting apples and making lots (and LOTS) of applesauce and butter, and gathering kindling for the woodstove. We’ve also finally had the chance to walk the entire length of our property through the woods, which was a great way to celebrate our one-year anniversary in the Wishkah Valley. We are even more in love with our home (and each other) than before ❤




I’m gathering my thoughts and materials for two new personal projects. . . and I’ve got an idea for a third project that will probably insist on getting in the way of everything else I’m working on 😉

A giant, heartfelt THANK YOU to Kathy and Phil, Sharrai at Holly’s Fine Flowers, and Lorna for the wonderful supplies that you’ve contributed to my craft room ❤ I can’t wait to share what creations come from these goodies!!!

wonderful supplies

on display

I’m looking to reserve space in a nearby Fall Swap Meet and have been keeping an eye out for local craft fairs and holiday bazaars to join as well. . . there’s also talk of weekend pop-up space in a shopping center in town that sounds promising. In preparation, I’ve made a few product displays and signage to use at my table and am stocked with business cards and other sales accessories, handmade of course!

I’ll let you know details of when and where I’m setting up, and what, exactly, will be available for purchase 😉

I’m so pleased with how great my prototypes and first-runs look and how well the displays turned out!!!
