This is a screen shot of my new shop in Lollishops! You can find me at . I was able to upload last night and it was easy and amazing. I think this will be a fun new venue! Hopefully successful, too! Come by for a visit. The site is new and still buggy but there are some amazing and fun things to find!

Time for Christmas!

How I spend my thanksgiving, originally uploaded by Mia Sophia.

After stuffing ourselves we usually go out to shop at Garden Ridge Pottery. I think this is a Texas thing, but this year they had the most amazing selection of ornaments. I wish I had a mansion so I could have a tree for each color!

Here is the first round of brooches based on the pink peony. I did deviate a little on color choices because I love all the colors. Although I was going for pink, I must admit my favorite was the dark burgundy brooch. Although, the chartreuse was a close second.

I'm very happy with my final brooches. Maybe someday I'll share with you those that didn't turn out quite so good. The experiments gone awry as it were... hmmm maybe not. That would be TOO embarrassing.

I hope everyone had a happy off to bed to prepare for Lollishops opening tomorrow! Yay. look for me there as (try again later if it doesn't work. I may not be fully operational yet).

My newest inspiration. The pink peony. Could a flower be more lovely? I am working on a pattern to emulate this gorgeous creation. So far, they all fall flat, but I'm tweaking and testing. It will be a Lollishops Exclusive! Back to work now.

This is my banner for my new lollishops. I will be starting my shop on November 28. I believe that is the original start up date. I am worried I may be spreading myself thin with it being right before the holidays and already having two etsy shops. My MiaSophia shop is starting to get busier and Friendlybanter has always been consistently busy (one to two sales a week) for the past month or so. So wish me luck, we'll see how it goes.
