Christmas Morning

The day before Christmas and all through the house....not a creature was scurrying..especially close to the fireplace...Eli won't let anyone near...she smells treats and squeaky goodies..all for her ( she thinks).

Kona the veteran of present opening...wasn't shy about tearing into his presents...and Elvi is a quick learner....she took her cues early and learned from her Big Brother Kona and is an expert now as well.

Last, but not least is Max, the baby, who once he gets his present, snack or toy, retreats to the couch to enjoy his conquest.

I know this post is a bit late, but I had a couple of weeks of "non-posting", so I have a lot to make up for....

Grand Opening Success...!

The Grand Opening of Sea About it was a undeniable success last Friday...! It was a beautiful day for Becky to cut the Ribbon and show off her new shop. She had the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce present with lots of friends and family and other Ocean Springs Businesses including Tori from Art & Soul and Lisa from Forever Green across the Street. I have a reason to stop by and Hi now..! Mark King also made an surprise visit to lend his support. I didn't know they were childhood friends...The stories that were told...Becky, I will never think of Madonna in the same way

We had great wine and some awesome Wisconsin Cheese and a lot of fun. (Becky wants to have another Re-Grand Opening next She was nice enough to let me have the great center display table made by her husband for my jewelry. It was the perfect place for my displays and they fit right into the decor. Psst...and if you want to see my Crabby necklace from the previous'll have to go down and see Becky..she has that and many more of my pieces there at Sea About It.

Congratulations to Beth B from Mobile, AL for being the lucky winner of the Drawing we hosted. Her gift is on it's way to her now. Thank you to everyone for participating..!

Feeling Crabby this Holiday Season...???

I love the Holidays, but I am not a big fan of Holiday shopping, especially at big outlet stores...and especially on Black Friday. You will find me in the studio, baking Christmas Cookies or Decorating for the season. The last place you will find me is in shopping mall or a store fighting others for parking spaces, gifts and great bargains. That for me, is not the way to bring in the season. I am trying my darnest this year to buy Handmade for my family and friends. A great place to start is Etsy.

Which brings me to the Crab set I created on Friday.....I know most people don't come home from shopping on Black Friday with a "warm & fuzzy"....I figures "crabby" was the word of the day...hence this beautiful Boro Glass Crab designed by my friend Jill. I love the yummy warm colors Jill combined....another plus on the cold, blustery day it was put together. It's a beautiful set...don'tcha think...?
