The snow turns ordinary landscapes into works of art. A clump of grass becomes a pattern of lines and curves.
Moments captured by the camera now can be the inspiration for a project later. So forget shovelling the stuff and photograph it instead.

By now those Christmas presents and commissions should be finished and ready for wrapping. And for those that did not make the deadline there is always that birthday or anniversary date that can be substituted for the Christmas deadline. We artisans learn to be flexible. You just can't rush creativity.
The Christmas craft fairs and studio tours have wound down. Soon it will be time to take stock and think about products for the next season. Meanwhile baking, eating and celebrating with friends and family is at the top of the to do list.
We are taking a short break but regular meetings will start again January 23rd.
Have a great holiday season!
