cranberry red

"tammy's swings"

The last couple of months have been filled with designing new jewelry pieces, filling commissions, writing magazine submissions and enjoying committed jewelry shows. I have met some wonderful new friends along the way.
One of my favorite colors keeps showing up, everywhere I look, I see it. Could it be....my anticipation of Christmas, one of my favorite times of the year?
But no, it is not only in my jewelry, as it is here with me everyday in the stained glass "poppy" that hangs in my bathroom window. In the early morning light, it gives off the most beautiful glow.
I am so thankful for the many blessings I have experienced this past year. I have been blessed by some wonderful new friends. Wonderful kindred spirits found in this big blog world. And, I have been encouraged by a a new friend and designer, Cindy Forrester, and her Thanksgiving Give Away Post. You must go visit, and tell her what you are thankful for today~you just might win one of her amazing designs!

Diane -

You are truly a gifted artist. I just love the beautiful pieces you posted here! I am a ginormous fan of red - I can't have a bad day if I am wearing that color. Even if it is just red lipstick.

I went out to Cindy's blog & posted my thankful list, and I loved reading what others have posted there. Thanks for the link!

Molly :-)

OH They're GORGEOUS! I can't wait. Red is my most favorite color, too, and garnet is my birthstone. You should get your stars tomorrow or Friday. I hope you love them, too!
