Reminder: I am transitioning the blog to the http://www.ornatelier.com site, and posting this here as a pointer for those who try to keep up.

And, Regan, I’m sorry. I PROMISE on a stack of pancakes to try not to move my blog ever again.

What A Day!

For a Wednesday, this has been pretty eventful!

Which much of the day was spent in the studio cranking out items to sell on Sunday, I also managed to improve my swimming a bit, leave my ATM card in an ATM, listen to a whole book, run some errands, receive several much-anticipated deliveries, and generally “enjoy” that sense of having WAY too much to do, and nowhere near enough time and money in which to do it.

I have never before so much looked forward to the winter holidays as a time when almost-nothing will happen!

Last night I finished this pendant, an etched-and-enameled sterling silver medallion with an asymmetrical marblewood setting. It makes me happy.

Today, I got my new business cards, which (at least in my imagination) are visually and verbally engaging.

I realize some of the text is tricky to read in the photo, but the point is that the fairly unremarkable, factual text is sharing space with glossy linework of my own devising.

As far as all that other stuff on the thing-do list, I guess I don’t need to list it out here. So, I won’t. Just trust me, there is an awful lot to do!

24NOV: Calendars!!

The calendars came in today! I am so jazzed about this. I kinda wanted to do one of those goofy unboxing photo series with the box of calendars, but it would’ve been a really short series: Photo 1> The Box, Photo 2> The Calendar … and that is all.

Instead, I am going to skip ahead to Photo 2:

And a month selected at random so you can peek at what it’s like inside:

I am still pricing colored pencils, so don’t hold me to this, but I think these calendars will be available for $8 locally, and $10 with domestic shipping.

If you are interested in having one (or more!) of these coloring book calendars, please let me know in the comments or via e-mail, because there are only 50 of them. In the whole world. The sooner I know where to send it, the more likely you’ll be able to start coloring on January 1!
