Have you ever felt as if you have so much to say, yet you just can't put it into words?

That's how I feel, today. But I guess we'll stick with the facts. I sold my first necklace via Etsy last week, and I was so incredibly pleased! It was this one:

'Spice Trader.'
I have to be honest, I've sold many pieces in person, but this whole selling via the interwebs is sort of crazy. But... I am learning. 

Hmmm... what else? Oh! Yesterday, I had my first 'grown ups only' horseback riding session in a long time. It was so much fun, though I *am* a rusty rider. At least I think so, but I tend to be very hard on myself. I'm really quite a perfectionist. But I guess that's a good thing, considering that I work with molten hot metal and glass. There is no room for clumsy when it comes to enameling or horses, that's for sure. Having said that, I DO like to 'horse around' at the stables when I get a chance. (Go ahead, groan in agony at my pun. You know you want to). Sometimes you just need to be silly:

As my friend Astrid said, "Poor mister noble creature, getting gloves on his ears!"  
Like many of you, I guess I am just getting excited up for my new studio space, and visiting with my family and friends for the holidaze. 

One more thing...(How could I forget this?) My friend Emilee and I lost our minds and built a gingerbread house for a local exhibition. That's not *so* interesting until you take into account that I am completely gluten-intolerant (I have Celiac Disease ~ if you'd like any info, please let me know). In addition, her daughter has a SEVERE lactose allergy. So that means that we baked and constructed a gluten-free, dairy-free gingerbread home. I think it's rather swanky. What do you think?

I'd live in it, wouldn't you? Especially if I could have the peppermint trees as shrubbery.

OK. I'm sure I will have many more interesting things to say in my next post, but to quote Charles Wallace from A Wrinkle in Time, "Let's be exclusive. That's my word for the day. Impressive, isn't it?" 
Sometimes being exclusive can be FUN.
