Where did 2013 go?

It has been such a busy year and it has just flown by.  Here we are in November already!  Christmas is just around the corner and then we’ll be looking at a spanking brand new year!  I’m already working on expanding my market base due to the recent changes in Etsy’s position on handmade.  ALL of my work is handmade and I’m looking at new venues that respect the artisans who continue to provide a quality handmade product.  I’ll still be on Etsy as I see how that market plays out but I’m adding shops on and in addition to my Artfire shop.  It’s going to be an exciting new year!

So what’s new this Christmas? I’ve been working on some Christmas mosaics that feature laser cut wooden ornaments used in a unique way.  I’m calling it my Faux Wrought Iron collection because the swirls and curls just remind me of wrought iron railings so prevalent in the south!
