Christmas Cookies!

101_0804Yesterday I baked homemade Christmas cookies and decorated them. My favorite Holiday childhood memories are baking with my Mom spending hours decorating all the cookies with my brother and mixing really great shades of icing…I think this is probably where my palette developed. …just wrapped them all up for gifts…warm and tasty holiday wishes to you all!

Holiday Open Studio

Well the first Open Studio was wonderful…thanks to all who came! It was a lovely afternoon with great company and treats. I couldn’t have done it without Rich…we really hustled to get things put away and organized and he was the best host…not only keeping Alice and Izzy in line but keeping all the kids who came happy and occupied, and greeting our guests.  I’ll be set up through the holidays if you still need to shop. Remember studios visits are always welcome by appointment.Studioshot

One door closes…

Well…it’s all over now, and we breath a sigh of relief. On Monday we sold our old house on Oakley. Only memories will remain, the developer will be sending in the wrecking ball any day now. Apparently you can get a permit in Chicago to tear down a house before you even own it, yikes!

So yes, one door closes and another opens and there is the smell of fresh bread in the air…(from the bread factory across the street from our new house)…and my first Open Studio on Washtenaw on Sunday…ready or not!

My Art On Cingular Phones!

Eventually they should also be available with other Carriers such as Verizon, Sprint, Alltel and more…
