etsymetal charmswap in the works

I signed up for the Etsy metal charm swap and thus I need to make 22 charms!
Of course I have been procrastinating and I figured it was about time to start.

So 22 little filigree seahorses are being crafted in my studio..
I've made the heads and the bodies. Need to make all their little details before I can solder them together.

And then comes the best part. I am going to fill them with different colored resin.
They are going to look so cool!

Now back to work for me!!

I bet you've been wondering... 
where has she been for the past couple of weeks?

Well there is lots of things going on over here in Audubon.
Some changes on the horizon. 
Things I can't talk about quite yet as nothing is finalized.
But if everything works out I can't wait to tell you. 
I think it will be quite exciting. :)

and I will have to leave you hanging with that.

And then there was Christmas.
And then it was over before it even started.
that's how it felt like


and now there is a dried up christmas tree in the living room... 
But with lots of happy ornaments.
And there is still homemade Glögg and mustard for the Swedish ham.
So I think I will be able to stretch out the Holiday feeling a little longer.

On Saturday well be hosting a little New year party.
We are planning to kidnap our out-of-state friend and take 
her firework shopping. You see if you have a PA license you cannot buy things that leave the ground. And although sparklers can be fun you need things that will leave the ground and explode in magical colors when it's new years eve...

I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas 
and I can't wait to see what the new year will bring :)

I can feel it...
Smell it in the air...
I think this will be a great Christmas.
