Trick or Treat?

“Trick or Treat!” Get ready, people, it’s coming: Halloween. Stock up on the candy and save up your energy, because those little ones are going to be arriving at your door, hoping for treats not tricks, with big eyes and even bigger goodie bags. Oh, and don’t forget about the parties! If you have kiddos of your own, you’ll also be expected to attend several Halloween, Fall Fest, or Harvest parties, along with the .

Finding Treasure

When a friend comes at us all excited and babbling about finding a treasure, we’re all ears. Especially when she wants to share info – the where, the what, and the who, so we can get in on the treasure, too.

The Timeless Gift

Each year as our daughter awakes to her first day of school, it is my tradition to greet her with a special breakfast and a “1st day of school surprise fun box”.

Happy Birthday, America!

July 4th is just around the corner. Our Independence Day. America’s birthday. Are you ready? Are the Popsicles frozen? The corn shucked and tucked away for that special day?

Just one look at the towering, rugged peaks or white foam rivers and it’s easy to see why we love it here, and why our jewelry takes the shape .

Sweet Spring

Spring is here…can you feel it? Even chilly days have a different feel than in winter. Maybe it was the meadowlarks first chirping outside my back window, or that I only need to tend the fire in the mornings, not the whole day through. Or maybe it was the fact that I determined to stop making eggnog. Whatever it was, the season has truly changed and I feel it, both outdoors and indoors. It’s .

Passionate Pursuit

What is your passion? What, when you think of it, fills you with pleasure and puts a smile on your face? What is it that you pour your heart and soul in to doing? That thing that makes you sweat pride and bleed joy and spend hours passionately pursuing? For Craig and Dusty Shutt, that thing is silversmithing. Even the word itself fills them with excitement. Each day, these two artists plan, imagine, design, .
