December is upon us, so I thought I should get on this blog…

I can’t believe how much we are doing around The Stash every day, and it seems there is always more to DO!  What is up with that?  🙂  We are only up to 102 artists right now, maybe that has something to do with it, and the fact that we took the show on the road this month too, or the fact that we are moving the shop all around to get ready for the holidays???  Hmmm, maybe, just maybe that has something to do with it…  🙂

Some other things are happening too!

Our blog is now evolving into a website (Thank you Jana Peirce).  So now you can check here for the latest information on classes & eventsI will still send out a couple of emails a month, but don’t want to overload the in-boxes with to much.

Holiday hours! We are now open on Sundays from 12-5 p.m. during the month of December.  Hopefully this will help with the holiday shopping needs!  Monday thru Saturday we will continue to be open from 10-6 p.m.

Alaska Range 11 a.m. in January

What a beautiful day it was today! 

So much so that we went for a drive trying to find the perfect spot to take photos of the mountains.  Alaska Range 11:30 a.m.  We did some of that, but up here the sun moves so fast you don’t have much time to get from one place to the next.  So, our efforts, may not be the best photos, but it was a great sight for our eyes. More mountains!!!

One of the things we thought was really cool, was how the snow clung to the trees.  Thursday we recieved about 8-10 inches over night, that is unusual for us.  But you can see the trees are loving it, the buds are there waiting for spring as are we.  Buds on snowy trees

You could tell (at about one) when the sun hit it’s high point for the day that the sun is getting stronger.  I actually had to put my visor down while driving, and I have NOT had to do that for about 4 months it seems. 

Ah!  This is why we love Alaska… 

I Took The Handmade Pledge!
