I am very excited. A wonderfully talented artist is offering a doll making class and I signed up!! I have always wanted to know how to combine the clay and fabric, and the class is finally here! After I am finished, I am sure there will be an entire new line of OTBP designs.

just realized I haven't been on my regular blog for ever!

so here I am....

summer is coming to an end and a wonderful, warm, breezy summer we have had here in West Alec. Though I never look forward to winter, I do love a good fire burning with the gentle honey fragrance of our home made beeswax candles burning.

Seems I have been creating Halloween forever, so I believe that holiday is coming to an end for me for 2008, and Thanksgiving and Christmas inspiration filling my head.

My grandbaby Dylan is doing well and growing bigger each day. My middle daughter, Shanna is due in March 2009...what a busy wonderful year we have had and are looking forward to for the spring!

It is amazing how life goes on no matter what...you never know how it will go from day to day...sometimes frightful, sometimes exciting.

I am looking forward to lots of new ideas and designs for the winter holidays, so keep in touch and visit the sales blog when you have a minute.

thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your time... hugs, robin
