Come see all the goods on Thursday! There are so many new pieces in the works... but because we've had so many dark days in a row here in Minneapolis, I haven't had much of a chance to take any photos. The light has been less than optimal, so you'll have to wait to see what will be! If the sun shines, or a least we have a bit brighter day tomorrow I'll make a couple photos of more pieces becoming... there's a whole lot on the work table today. XXJM

On the worktable... from late last night...



linen balls, small bears, bulbs, pompoms and little bits are starting to take shape.
The update will be next week! stay tuned for the details... (you'll know as soon as I do!)


slowly but surely

It's not fast, but it's happening. I stayed up extra late last night, with Christmas music on (yeah, I'm a total softy when it comes to Christmas- kinda can't get enough) and a big cup of warm tea, and I worked. It got late, and I wasn't sprightly this morning when my children were up at 6am, but it was really fun. The best part? This guy was here in the studio to greet me this morning along with a whole bunch of new things in the works... A good night indeed.


hello Turkey.

These two fine feathered friends, ridiculous and sweet, are ready for the Thanksgiving Feast.

Robert, a friend, collector, and maker of things, requested a few of these happen again this year. His turkey from way back in 2011, needed a lady friend. And so it goes: more turkeys. Every time I make these they make me laugh. They're so ridiculous they become altogether charming. These two are looking for homes. You'll find them in the shop today. 

Hope you're Thanksgiving is filled with loved ones all around. XXXJM

PS: I just realized I forgot to put they're bow on... ok, that's got to happen before they jump into boxes. hahah.
