The comfort of kindness

multi-media collage box by Leslie West






























I just wrapped up a three day Artist Studio Holiday Show...what a wonderful experience...what wonderful people - artisians and shoppers alike!

I was a newbie to this artist group who has been putting on a grand studio show for many a year...everyone was warm and welcoming...the hostess, Leslie West (encaustic artist extraordinaire) was so gracious with everyone running through her house...

Let me give you an overview of the artists who were there...and, for those of you who were unable to make it (due to schedule or location), there's a link for each artist to enable you to find what you want and complete your holiday shopping so easily...

Jan Reingold / Izanna Jewelry
Jan will be participating in Best of the Northwest art show, Nov 18-20 in Seattle
























Lee Gelb / Zavida Gemstones
























Judy Case / Handcrafted Ceramics
Judy uses textiles / natural elements to emboss her ceramic pieces...
this platter's pattern is from a vintage doily...



















Linda Van Hare / Hare Raising Design






















Kate Hartley / Full Circle Studio
























Leslie West / ad Lib studios
And there were also food artisans...
decadent truffles from Tom Callahan / tkChocolates
Though the weather could have been better...there were a few bright moments outside...
and plenty of warm ambiance inside...
To all who stopped in and shopped...to all the other artists...to Leslie for being such a wonderful hostess...

  2. Love the advent calendar dresser (or at least a dresser with 24 fab drawers). And the 'thank you' in the jars at the end gave me a great DIY decor idea for an upcoming ornament exchange party. Thanks!
