Celebrating Mid-Autumn, Studio Update

As of the Mid-Summer studio update, I thought things were settling down, but things have been busier than ever with art coming and going from the studio, there is a lot to share in this mid-season studio update. We are so grateful that the hard work of summer is behind us, our gardens fed us well, our milkweed has created a butterfly sanctuary. This is a favorite time of year, the time when we can slow down and count our blessings, Samhuin, the night of the Ancestors, is just past.The biggest focus as I write is preparing for Open Studio, I look forward to seeing you here. See this page for details. The next few images show a sneak peak of Sunwise Farm & Sanctuary, and the studio, brand new art, jewelry and greeting cards.
