Whew! Thanks to all for bearing with me while I was dealing with a family emergency and unable to check in regularly! I'm back at it now, in full swing with prep for the holidays and taking Christmas orders! 

Can you believe that we're already most of the way through October? I can't! With two major holiday shows coming up, my kitchen and sunroom are a mess (not to mention my chainmaille supplies strewn throughout my living room)! Between the personalization of hand-painted ornaments, the creation of our new gifts-to-go line (listings will be posted soon - all you have to do is add wrapping paper!), and generally just stocking up, I have a feeling that the next few months will fly by!

I'll be posting a tutorial soon on how to make your own reindeer cork ornament - he's such a cute little guy, everyone should have one! And what better gift for a wine lover? In the meantime, check out the Wine and Wine Related section of my site for more gift ideas for the wine lover in your life. 

Ciao for now!
