Cabin Fever? It Could Be Worse.....

It seems like it's snowing all over the place--and the blogsphere is loaded with snow photos, so, I had to add a visual from the WillOaks Farm. This was before we got 6 to 8 more inches early Wednesday morning AND the wind really picked up speed.

Green silk with olive jade, millefiori, glass, serpentine, green jade, yellow turquoise---
another in the "silk experiments series"....

.....all designed to be "multi-wrap" versatile.

Meanwhile, now it's Mariah's turn to teach Purrmeister how to
drink from the faucet, like Red Kitty taught her....

....and Purrmeister is a willing and able student.


And remember that "numbers thinking" I mentioned earlier? Well, this weekend, my shop on Etsy hit the 1111th "heart me" which was a good feeling, and as we have approached Valentine's Day, I took a few more orders. (I try to imagine what it would be like if every heart equaled a sale....not gonna' happen, but it's a cute fantasy.) Not to be ungrateful, it's neat to know WillOaks Studio has been "tagged" by both shoppers and other artists.

And while I still haven't quite reached my goal of raising $100 for Haiti relief and rebuilding, through my 10% donation from my sales on Etsy, but I did hit $93 as of Wednesday!
...and I'm keeping this up through 2-14-10, Valentine's Day.

Karen, first, Purrmeister is just so cute. I am loving the millefiori designs, very colorful and unique. The snow photo is beautiful really even with 8 to 9 more inches. Love the tree silhouette against the blanket of snow. It's nice to be back visiting you and my other favorites again :)

Wow, lots of news from your neck of the woods! Congrats on the numbers- you are almost at your Hati goal, that's wonderful! I love the new necklace- those are my colors:) And the top photo of it, how you laid it out, looks like a "serpent". Love it:) I keep meaning to do a post on our new kitty water bowl- we got one of those fountains- our cats love it!
