Bishoph Hill Gallery and Lucia Nights

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We sure had a great one. We saw 3 of the 4 kids. We had lots of fun talking and mountains of delicious food. Family is so important and we are so thankful that they all still live close enough to come see the us.

Life has been busy around Terp Creek. I have been at 4 craft shows this season. I have also been busy doing custom orders for the holidays only 2 left to complete unless I get some late orders this weekend.

We made another trip to Bishop Hill Gallery to restock the supply of stone coasters, which are selling very well. Be sure to check out Bishop Hill Gallery when you go to Bishop Hill, IL. They close for the season from Dec. 13 through Jan. 31, 2011 so you better hurry and go this weekend for the Lucia Nights Dec. 10th and 11th from 6 pm to 9 pm.

We are currently in the process of looking for an art studio. Don’t know if we should build a studio on our farm or build on to the house. I have been trying to think of something unusual to use for a studio. I know of an airplane that was converted into a hotel but I since I don’t have a plane that idea may not work. I keep having this feeling that someone will come up with a fantastic idea. If you have any ideas email me at or leave a comment. My goal is to have my studio up and going by the middle of next summer.

Have a wonderful holiday season.
