Happy new year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. We spent ours in the Rockies and then traveled down to El Paso. Spending some much needed time away from home and with our families was just what we needed. During this time away, I did some brainstorming on how I could expand Pine + Bramble to provide other aspects of our daily lives. I settled on practicing one craft a month, something to do in the mornings when I wake up and before bed. Just a little experiment to see what other forms of art I may enjoy! This month I will be tackling jewelry. I was inspired by a mineral I found in our front yard, which we think was left by someone that lived there before us. Rustic Relics, a wonderful little crystal and antique shop in Lakewood, identified it as fluorite!
So keep an eye out each month on what I will be doing next! If the project is a success, I will be putting up the products on my etsy, and may even continue to make them! Here's to a new year full of travel, exploration, creativity and productivity!
