Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you’ll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
Welcome to the Humblebeads’ Studio. Christmas was so much fun, but it’s not over yet! We like to extend the celebration through the New Year. We relax. How often does that really happen? You know, we turn off the phone and computer. Pull out the board games or craft projects. Give the kids our undivided attention. Watch our favorite holiday movies, which for my weird family includes an annual screening of Die Hard. Yippie Kay-Ah! The kids are home for the week and enjoy an unrushed pace that is welcomed after the craziness of getting ready for the holidays. I’ll tell you this has always helped with those post-Christmas blues. We enjoy this time like we are all on vacation. Even if I do get up and work before anyone else is out of bed, they will never know!
They remind me of icicles. Wouldn’t they look great for New Year’s Eve?
Which brings me to my question of the week. What do you do to ring in the New Year? We spend a quiet evening with our dearest friends, sharing drinks and a beautiful meal. At midnight fireworks are let loose in the neighborhood.
One comment will be randomly drawn as the winner next week, the prize – a set of my branch disk beads.
