Shop Update

I know, what the heck…what has been going on in the making corner of my universe!!

I’ve decided to keep my Etsy shop closed a little longer than expected; as running around, moving and getting ready for a slew of shows and markets has not left any room for me to keep up with photographing and selling my work online. But, I didn’t want you guys to get the wrong idea about me; and think I’m just being a lazy bump on a log over here, and wanted to preview a few of my new pieces that I’ve slowly and tenderly developed over the last few months.  I also wanted to share my show schedule with you, in hopes that if you live in or near the area, that you’ll pop in and say hello.  Please do, I love giving hugs and telling awkward jokes (I only know three…well maybe four…so I won’t take up too much of your time 🙂 !!! )

To Touch Time

it starts at the beginning

you know, when the cosmic universe collided

making something from nothing

something into everything

i saw it with my own two eyes

and now i only see stardust and majesty

the type of majesty that turns tears into diamonds

diamonds into mountains

and mountains into time

as i stand beneath the unbelievable beauty

of a world hemmed by mountains and colossal magnificence

i know i have touched time

everything falls silent except the rhythmic beating of my heart

and effortless exhale of breath into glacial mountain air

an explosion of a million beginnings

all starting from this moment in time

it all begins here

it all starts now

i have touched time and now i know

This Handmade Life

Well gosh, I know… I kind of missed the whole Holiday rush of gifts.  But maybe that is for the best, as I have had so much fun coming up with each of these new designs.  It is so nice to work when you can dictate the rhythm of making.  Spending days and moments nurturing ideas and designs.  I have been in the thick of supplying stores with very specific orders lately; and while I do work incredibly efficiently when producing a large order…I do really prefer to putz around and make as the cycle of energy and ideas flow freely. Image That being said, I know I have never really talked much about my background or where I come from in a design sense…[more on this later as I am a bit exhausted at the moment]…but, the fundamental idea behind Blue Mountain Thyme is living a handmade life.  I make items of beauty and function for you to use in your daily life.  This is a lifestyle that my husband and I subscribe to and something we really try to live and breathe every day.  While we accumulate items and unnecessary things just like anyone else, we really try to make and design as many items we use, as we possibly can.  When a project leaves our skill set, we go to a maker that can help us carry out a vision.  It is this interaction with the hands that make, that really gives an item history and longevity.  My items are not for everyone, but I really hope that when they do end up in someone else’s life that they remember that item came from me! Happy Holiday season everyone, and again, I am grateful and glad to have each and every one of you in my life.
