|Twitch and Whiskers at SoWa Holiday Market 2013|
|Hob Knob rings - turn up the volume|
For many of the artists at the show, it was their last hurrah of the 2013 holiday season. Behind those beautifully handcrafted goods and tired grins were heaps of heart and hours of dedication. It made me proud to be part of a group of folks who make the holidays merry and bright for others. Hellos from friends (old and new) made the two day show a breeze. You know what else kept me going? Decadent Union Square Donuts. YUM!

Lianne and Paul Stoddard, the dynamic duo behind Swirly Designs work absolute magic with polymer clay. This clever husband and wife team combine their creative super powers to make a whimsical world of ornaments. I was lucky to be next to them at the market because I got an up close look at their finely detailed, limited edition pieces. Think Christmas and beyond, because they offer new ornaments for each season. Their winter collection has a flurry of snowmen with brightly wrapped gifts. Spring will bring you glittery bunnies atop of cream colored eggs. Summer sparks with a patriotic Fourth of July owl. Fall, my favorite time of year, creeps and crawls with Halloween witches, devils, and pumpkin heads. From their delicate dusting of glitter and crimped cupcake papers to their characters' curious expressions and carefully painted features, you will love every detail of Swirly Designs. Visit Lianne and Paul's website, blog, and Facebook page for more information. Start your collection today!
