Bemby Yocum has worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for years and that is uniquely reflected in the design of her pieces. She uses wood, wire, beads, and her original printed art to create her pieces for the sale. Her husband, who patiently cuts her designs out of wood, helped her create a new contemporary Holy family with a shepherd and sheep. A coordinating angel is available for purchase to display alone or with the set. Bemby’s unique style, whether as an ornament, greeting card, wooden nativity or a decorative piece, will be sure to add a touch of color, fun and a little whimsy to your holiday décor!

Rita's summer was busy,
that is so true!
There were so many new arts
that she wanted to do.
Casting stone and then painting
were two of those things.
Silk dying, some baking
and making glass bling.
Making new masks was also a task,
wearing them for awhile now-
she was sure it would last.
So come for the art,
and the holiday spirit you'll get.
But it's her fudge and nut brittle
that you must not forget!
Leanne from South20studios has new totems and flowers inspired by nature. These are sure to add some fun and color to your winter garden.
