The month of January I found myself in a very introspective state. Contemplating a colorful year that included two break-ins at our sweet home, detectives, attorneys, insurance, studio moves, family and friends health issues, and the death of my amazing father-in-law, 2012 was quite full of emotion - from the beginning to the end. With such a heart-wrenching year, it is sometimes hard to remember the good things that happen. And I am trying hard, always aiming to be positive. One thing I know for sure, is that my little studio business is growing each year and I have wonderful clients who put their trust in me to create their special items. And 2012 was no different. I am going to share with you now some of these amazing pieces that I was lucky enough to create over the busy fall season. I hope you enjoy!

Loss envelops, though it is surrounded by love. It is intimate, soulful and hard. To keep your feet moving is the only way to get to the other end of its dark path. If you stop in the shadows you will remain in the shadows. As the path weaves and dips, and the glimmer of light flickers in and out of view, keep walking and collecting those little moments of light and hope and love in your basket of heart. Loss is life and love is life. Continue on the path of life and you will sing again. (~tavia)
Amidst the rush of life, the growth of my creative dreams, and the love and laughter of a sweet little family I am fortunate enough to call my own, a family patriarch has fallen. Never far from my daily thoughts is he, his final days, or the family members for whom I ache in their loss. My Father-in-Law, Edwin Brown, made his departure from this fine world just eleven short days ago.
He was a good man. He was a man who loved his family, who was true to his word, who was honest in his voice, who knew the importance of hard work, and who would help anyone without a second thought or need for recognition. He was a fine man, loved by his family, and honored in our memories. May he continue to inspire us to be better individuals as we move through this life.
Love you Ed.
