As the snow is accumulating outside and hubby is out plowing his accounts, I'm sitting in my office, looking out and being thankful for warmth and electricity.
Yesterday it snowed too and thankfully it was only about three inches or so for our area, which made the shoveling at home and the plowing the accounts much easier.
Today on the other hand....with snow drifts and much more snow that fell (I'm thinking over 6 inches overnight...), I'm not looking forward too much going outside and shoveling. 🥶❄️☃️

Usually I take the month of January and part of February off from designing new pieces, other than custom orders that need to be done. It was tax paperwork season and I'm so glad that's over with and done and taken to the accountant.
So I've been at it again with making some new designs, re-stocking some popular pieces and working on new ideas.
Here are some new things I've made lately:
A re-vamp of this website is eventually on the horizon, as my artistic expressions have been more towards the jewelry and designing than the music. Although I still have a love for the music and want to go back to writing, but I have a feeling the "concert" days are pretty much over, except now in just much smaller circles and that's quite alright actually.
This season in my life I'm just wanting to have an attitude of gratitude to the Lord as He has always sustained us and provided for us. Not always in ways we thought, but He has never forsaken us. What this year holds for us as far as events goes, we don't know, but we take it one event at a time and plan upcoming ones according to how the Lord directs us.
I'm so thankful that I get to continually be creative and design things that you all have come to love or have discovered new styles that you might otherwise not have tried out and that's always exciting. It's a pleasure to be able to still connect with folks and visit as people come out to events, which means making new connections, refreshing relationships and hugging some necks!
Until we see you out there or the next newsletter, stay hopeful, faithful and trust the Lord in all things.

Psalm 100 Scripture
1 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
3 Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.
