Christmas at Millarville

I just got back from setting up for the Christmas show at Millarville happening this weekend. If you've never been, you might want to take a look. It is quite different from most Christmas shows - very old-fashioned and charming. Many of the vendors choose to be outside (not me!), and it is amazing all the methods they come up with to give themselves shelter and keep warm. There is even someone roasting chestnuts for sale. I will be ensconced in the warmth of the Hall building. I will try to get some pictures to post. Here's the website if you are looking for times and how to get there: http://www.millarville-ab.com/ChristmasMarket.html Hope to see everyone there!
In the meantime, here are some pictures to tease you. The one below is part of my studio after a frantic burst of creativity and panic. As you can see, I have been making lots of earrings.

The next picture is of some of my "twisted hearts". These ones are the result of the class I took from Jennifer Geldard a few weeks ago. I finally learned how to use enamels in beadmaking, and look forward to lots more playing with them once life is a little less hectic.
