Craft Show leftovers...

Come get 'em while they're hot!!!

Halloween's gone for another year, but I've still got some craft show goodies laying around. Check 'em out...priced to sell. Need to make some room for the Christmas goodies. All Brian Lock originals.

Get 'em now, they make great gifts and spooky stocking stuffers. Have questions? Shoot me a line. Most items shipped using USPS priority mail. Usually arrive within 3-4 days.

Thanks for looking!

Bad, bad blogger...

Ok, so I've really, I mean really, been a bad blogger. Haven't posted in quite a while, but I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth....yet. New job and a quickly approaching craft show have kept me busy. Here are some quick pics of some of the things I've been working on. Enjoy!

More Halloween goodies...

I'm back, not that I've really gone anywhere, just busy. Started a new job last week and loving it. Here are some Halloween goodies for my upcoming fall show. I seem to make everything else, so I figured that I'd give earrings a try...(had to throw in a snowman!). Also, another holiday bear.....Enjoy!!

I'm back with a couple more pieces....I'm trying to get a little stockpile together for my upcoming fall show. Here's a little sneak peek. The wood signs are about 5"-6" wide. The light bulb fan pull chain glows in the dark, as does the skull eye. Enjoy.

Back to work....

It's been a little too quiet on my blog front lately. Normal, busy summer underway along with a couple months of creative down time to recharge the brain. I haven't been completely lazy, although you'd never know it by the blog. Below are some of the little things that I've managed to get done along with my new kick of the week, bears.

7/10/2010 - Nicky's first birthday

Well, tomorrow should have been a very happy day. I should have been watching my son turn one, helping him make a mess of his birthday cake, and introducing him to his hot wheels. Unfortunately, we will be celebrating his memory instead. Thanks to my daughter's innocent, yet brilliant idea a couple of months back, we've decided that the best way to celebrate Nicky's birthday is to say a little prayer and let some balloons go. It's hard to believe that it's already been a year, it seems to me like it's been a lifetime.

Below is the poem that I wrote for Nicky's memorial service. It's still the best way I can tell him how much he is loved and missed.

We miss you Nicky - Mommy, Daddy, and Kaylee.

Dearest Nicky,

For nine happy months,
We waited with joy,
For the expected arrival,
Of our darling baby boy.

We started the day,
With such anxious glee,
But our dream of you, son,
Just couldn’t be.

Your heartbeat, they said,
They just couldn’t find,
In the right spot they weren’t looking,
It was in here, with mine.

We’d picked out a name,
Nicholas Stephen, we’d call you,
We knew that it fit,
From the moment we saw you.

So pretty and perfect,
A true sight to behold,
For just one day together,
My world, I’d have sold.

God’s thoughts and his plans
I don’t venture to know,
But of something so perfect,
He just couldn’t let go.

A treasure so great,
Not meant for this Earth,
We’ll love you forever,
For all that we’re worth.

So with God don’t be angry,
And please don’t be sad,
For I’d bet on my life,
He knows more than dad.

I know that you’ve gone,
But your not far away,
And we promise to love you,
Each and every day.

So from up there in Heaven,
Please help ease our pain,
Until as a family,
We’re together again.

On that day that we meet,
We’ll walk hand in hand,
Just like I’d pictured,
Just like I’d planned.

These lines that I write,
Are washed with great sorrow,
But with hope I am looking,
Towards a better tomorrow.

The depths of our love,
I truly hope that you know,
You’ll be with us always,
Wherever we go.
