Almost Dec 1 and my traveling isn’t quite finished for the year….even though the calendar reads there is only 31 days left in 2015! WINTERFAIR COLUMBUS IS JUST 4 DAYS AWAY! Starting Dec 4, I’ll be jointing 399 other artists to set up my little shop and present all the MANY new designs I’ve been working on this year. Came out of the Cincinnati Winterfair this last weekend with more available pieces than I had planned, but that’s good news for you because that means that there is still a good selection of giftable items from which to choose.

columbus_wf15_e-cardHours: 10-7 friday and sat; 11-4 sunday.

ALL of this flurry of activity means that little ole me hasn’t had time to get my website remake up and running. Even though it has been in the very capable hands of Kevin Alan Designs, he’s waiting on me to review it and make some of the final revisions and additions to it.

SO, if you’ve come here looking for the new items, don’t fret they will be here soon. Sign up for the newsletter and get the announcement for the GRAND OPENING(?-posting) coming soon.

Packing up the Car and hitting the Road Again

It’s hard to stay away from the shows. There is so much energy there and people to meet and share with that I’ve decided I have to jump back into the car and hit the road. On a limited basis anyway. We’re getting ready for the ODC Winterfair in Nov in Cincinnati/Covington and Dec in Columbus. Will we see you there?

Times, They are a Changing…….

I have had a love-hate relationship with the internet for a while recently.

I love the information available. I love the visual smorgasbord that is changing every day. I love the connections with people all over.

I hate the way it zaps my time and energy every day. I hate the pressure I put on myself to STAY connected to everything that is going on on-line. I hate that I can’t keep up!!!!

It isn’t about age, or ability, or experience. It is just about choices.

Over the last year we, Dale and I, have had many choices and changes to our lives. We moved our home and studio, we hope, to allow us to stay happier and healthier for many more years to come. In the chaos of it all, I have done some stopping to think, some re-starting goals and activities, and some listening to what some very talented advisors have to tell me.

While all change is a struggle, today I can honestly say that I see the light ahead. I’m having fun making new and exciting designs in jewelry and home decor. Once again, I’m searching for those few, select events where I can bring out my designs and share them with you. (So if you have any you think would be a good fit, let me know!) And I want to thank, and promote the people who are standing by me and helping me in making the changes and transitions that are so important to a small business person these days.

First off, we have a new look that is slowing rolling off the creative desk of Kevin Alan Designs! He is the technical and creative genius behind the on line presence of Partners in Charms – – and now Naturescapes Studio!

What do you think of our new banner on Facebook?
