Last Wednesday, I had the funnest best day! I got to spend the day with Catherine Witherell at her beeeeaaaautiful studio. I forgot to take any pictures because I was having too much fun looking at all of her treasures, her projects, books, tools, amazingly organized areas, her dogs AND her "rock and roll bathroom"! ( very cool)
It was kinda like soul vitamins for the artist in me....SO FUN!
Catherine is kind, smart and generous. She made an amazing lunch of yummy lentil stew, some deelish carrots basted with honey & herbs & balsamic vinegar and blueberries and raspberries. Sooooo good!
Her dogs are sweet. I think that Cookie and I are pretty good friends now.
I made her a present, and she said she'd treasure them always. I told you she's kind!
The winner of the "Gratitude" bracelet is Pebbles Wireman! Fair and square~~I wrote down all the names on my pads. Snipped them apart, put them into my 1970's Corningware bowl. Then I stirred them around, closed my eyes and drew.
Thank you thank you thank you all for playing! How fun to hear such lovely comments here and on FaceBook. You've blessed me so much~~Wish I had bracelets for you all!
It'll fit wrist sizes from 8 inches down to little. It fastens in the front with the two hooks and you can adjust the length and either let the ends dangle or cut 'em off with wire cutters.
To enter the drawing, just comment on this blog, or if you are one of my Facebook friends, comment on the giveaway post there.
I will draw the winning name Friday, December 27th at 7:00 PM my time ( Pacific Standard Time). I'm going to do it the old-fashioned way and write each person's name on a piece of paper, load them into a hat and draw. Everyone gets an equal chance. 4-H girl's honor! (hehe)
I will announce the winner then, and will request their shipping info.
I hope you enter even though you are super busy right now. I know it will be fun for ME to hear comments from friends and imagine who will win it.
I sawed the crosses out a couple of months ago, and set them aside on my bench. Other projects, life, etc. kept getting in the way, and they kept calling to me to finish them already...lol!
I love crosses. I love the symbolism of my Savior and His grace. And I love jewelry that looks rough-hewn and old. Here you go~
BUSY great time in the Kerr household. New grandson Logan:
That's my son, the father of my little grandson. His wife is a wonderful gal and a great mommy. Logan was born on Thanksgiving and is growing sooooo fast. He's also quite mellow, which is an experience for me, as both of my babies were colic-y.
I've been privileged to change two of his messy diapers...my DH always bows out quickly when that happens~hahahaa!
Our goddaughter is due with a little girl baby in March and my husband's eldest daughter is having a little boy in May. Population explosion!
We are so blessed.
May your week be filled with blessings and remembrances of Advent, the time of waiting for our Savior's birth! And is anyone else amazed at how fast 2013 has sped by?
