My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.

I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

Christmas is here.......

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoy the view of our studio this holiday season.
This tree is one of my very favorites. It is all icy and antique and filled with many pieces that my family and I have made over the years.
Here is our little mouse that my Mom made. His name is Winkler and he is take the Polar Express bell to his home.

This is a favorite of the many ornaments that my brother gave me years ago. It's Santa riding a dove. 

 Here is one of the many trees that are out in full regalia: bronze, silver and brown.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. Thanks for your visit and come back soon.

Love to you and yours this Christmas season

Brian and Kevin

Twas The Week before Christmas

 Twas the week before Christmas and all kinds of things afoot: present wrapping, candy making, friends meeting and the last minute things we all have to do to make it all seem so effortless in front of the people you host and the people you go to see. But you have to ask yourself, if we can put this much effort into making Christmas on this one day then why can't we do this all year long? What is wrong with us as a people? We make the effort to be the people we want to be at this holiday time but after the new year we go back to being the same lackadaisical people that we were before it began. If this for one moment has struck a chord in your mind then do as I am doing and give it a little effort to make this your solemn vow to greet people you see with a warm hello and a smile and thank people for what they bring to your life.

I received a text the other day thanking me for being a great friend out of the blue and it made me realize people are the one thing that make this life we live somthing worth holding on to.  They are the people that make getting up and greeting the day with a smile on our face and a happy thought in our heart.   This is dedicated to a dear friend, Jane Haganman, for opening my eyes and making me realize what it is that I have to be thankfiul for this holiday season and every day of the year. So DAMN it go out there and make someone's year.

Kisses from Brian and keep stitchin'.
