Atlanta Gift Mart


Hello everyone! Well I finally sat down to update my blog. I have been so busy in the studio and tending to the animals on the farm. It has been such a COLD winter...all I do is chop wood to keep the darn wood stove burning. I probably have 5 layers of clothing on right now....including mittens and 4 pairs of socks! LOL!
Lately I'm just enjoying time in the studio, working the farm and baking whenever I can.
I did have a small "warm up" break when I attended the annual Atlanta Gift Mart mid January. It was so nice to catch up with my good friends in between my meetings at the Mart. Lots of laughs!
The show was a big success and I'm so excited about my future products hitting the stores!
Stay warm everyone!
Dan
