That fact was totally kicked out of my brain for weeks, until clicking on yesterday morning's Google search doodle, which thwacked me right between the eyes.
Not ready to let go of Summer honestly....
I can't remember where we were last week when the grumbling started and the receiver of the grumble said--- but, Fall is my favorite season, it isn't Winter yet. How wise was that statement!
It is a praiseworthy time of the year in a beautiful package of color, scent and possibility.
SDAJ always gets a big boot in the behind this time of year developing new jewelry designs, techniques and palette choices.
This season lots of recycled glass, ethnic and even more off the bench components embark on their journey. Loads of to-dos wrapping it all together by tumbling, oxidizing and finally sanding away high spots giving each it's expression.

Having a home studio gives the artist permission for total abandon in the work, home and life.
My family is my life, life gives freedom...freedom is found in the art. What do you think about that! I can be cohesive in thought when I want..maybe it's Autumn :) LOL
Organic beef roasting in the crock-pot, rosary wrapping beads in the living room while binge watching The Blacklist featuring James Spader. He is extraordinary in this role!
Here for Balsamic Crock-pot Beef Roast recipe using the chicken broth and low salt soy sauce for the tamari substitute. It was the perfect flavor profile having none of that slow cooking washed out blandness.
|Laughing Owl Press studio and what not instagram|
Laughing Owl Press inquired about carrying SDAJ, in their new retail/working studio, location on main street in Kane, Pa. recently. With out even hesitating I came back with a resounding YES!
An open-house is scheduled for October 19th- 2:00 to 7:00pm tentatively, for the time (more details as the date approaches) at the new studio space.

LOP and SDAJ are both part of the PA Wild's Artisan Trail as an artisan and trail stop. A good friend of mine, also a trail artisan, recently applied to be juried now for a trail stop.
I am not sure how many artisans actually are a trail stop...I need to find out, lol.
