The quick update is that we had a truly wonderful Christmas filled with Love and Fun and a wonderful Family visit! Unfortunately as soon as everyone returned home we both got sick. As in nasty yucky incapable of doing much of anything sick. It wasn't much fun, but we did rest and sleep a lot, and we took lots of naps. (Lets just say that we were both so sick that neither of us was online enough to keep up with our email!) We pampered ourselves. And now, almost six weeks later we are finally about back to normal!
We haven't been completely idle. As we began to recover we were able to finish some of the new designs that we've been so excited by! So now we are (finally) posting again and have even began to (finally) update our Guild members' webpage too!
We were supposed to go to Gatlinburg this last Tuesday, for the Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival's committee meeting. Which was the third or fourth time in a row that we were foiled by the weather! And now we have even more snow coming down again right now!
Since we weren't able to make the trip (again!) we shipped our newest pieces to Laurel, at Arrowcraft. It's not as much fun as being there and getting to share our new work with her for the first time but it will have to do for now.
I know these photos aren't that good, but they are the only ones that we have! It turns out that the lens was a little smeary and I had left a normal flourescent light on, so not only are they a little out of focus but the colors aren't quite right. So, here are some of our first pieces of the year, and our first post of this year!
