Life has been crazy busy and exciting since the start of the new year. We have been making slow and steady progress on our house construction - a major and necessary distraction from my world of Whimsy House. You can follow our trials, tribulations and occasional celebrations on my house blog ~ Old Stone Farm House. Meanwhile I've been designing a few new goodies in anticipation of the upcoming Fall in Love with Handmade trunk show on the calendar for Sunday, February 6th at The Glitter Workshop here in Madison. The heart brooches above have just been listed on Etsy and similar ones will be available at the show. Lots of other new designs are dancing in my head, ready to be born... hoping to find some time to work on them this weekend. So, with the season of LOVE in full swing I send you a hug and thank you for your patience while I'm in the middle of a construction zone.
