Good Clean Fun!

So I was feeling guilty about only posting my own work recently. Just being lazy! So here is a post about the best soap ever! I had hearted this one a while back and just happened upon it the other day as I was looking for something elese. This soap makes me smile as soon as I look at it! She has some really creative ideas! I love the rice krispie treats and also the gummie bears! Check out her etsy shop for more goodcleanfun!

More new work

Ok. I'm cheating today. I didn't get to post because we were out all night judging the applicants for the Holiday Heap show. Oh. my. goodness. I never knew how much work went into this! Over 100 applicants for 42 spots and boy was it tough competition! We had to take out some really great artists just because of size restrictions. So today I am posting late and just giving another peek at some new work. Hopefully I will have some more new stuff for you in a couple of weeks!

Casserole for dinner!

Ok. As soon as the weather starts to get cooler I have a craving for my favorite casserole dish. It's so easy and I'm making it tonight!
You'll need...
1 package of turkey/ chicken sausage removed from casing (I use sweet italian turkey), 1 package (2 cups) shitake mushrooms (I throw in some baby bellas also since I love mushrooms!), 1 onion chopped, 1 cup of rice (any grain works well, I like quinoa), 2 cups chicken broth, parmesan cheese and ground pepper to taste.

Heat a skillet over meduim high and add sausage, onion and mushrooms, breaking up the sausage with a spoon or fork. Cook until sausage is brown and mushrooms and onion are tender. Add the rice, stirring to coat and the broth. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer about 20 min. or until the broth has evapotated. Stir in cheese and pepper to taste.

I serve this with a salad of field greens, dried cranberries, walnuts, goat cheese and our favorite dressing, Annies Gingerly Vinagrette.
Finish it off with a cramel apple for dessert!! Hooray Fall!

New! For the holidays...

I am already starting to work on Holiday stuff can you believe it? I guess I'm thinking ahead, trying to get ready for the season of shows soon to come. I put out these ornaments yesterday at the Crafty Bastards Show, which totally rocked, and I just about sold out of the dove. Only one left! Good thing I have many more waiting for me to finish up in the studio! I am also thinking about turning some into pendants, I love chunky necklaces!
