I can't believe how quickly time flies! It has been nearly a week since I updated the blog. I wonder, how do I know that anyone is reading or even looking?

The gallery lost power today, so Bob closed early. There is no reason to stay open when there is no heat and no lights. But, there were a few brave souls who wandered in during the day.

I'm wishing the snow stops . . . I will have Caribbean music playing to remind me that some places are actually warm. I'd love to be one of the divers in the acrylic painting by Eric McAfee.

What a BEAUTIFUL Friday - the sun is so bright! It almost looks like spring. The temperatures are still in the 30's, although it's warm enough for some melting to happen!

For those who are Irish or Irish wannabe's we now carry handmade blank cards. These are beautifully, hand crafted by: Mike Bizup of Cleveland, Ohio. I've included an image of just a few of the cards. All are "one of a kind."

Mike also makes "any occasion" cards - his cards retail for just five dollars

Finally, a day of SUNSHINE! I almost forgot what it looked like when it's sunny.

Cigar Box guitars - we have a nice variety of hand built electric Cigar Box guitars. Built by Marty Strauss -of course he would be a musician and Marty Wallace - Marty is also a musician. Both are from N. E. Ohio

Some of the guitars are self contained - they have the amplifier built in, others can be plugged into an amplifier. Either way they sound great. Tuned to "open E", played using a slide. Fun for those who play or collect.

Spring - Jewelry Classes at the Brecksville Center for the Arts.

It's snowing again . . . I'm wondering if it will EVER stop? Do we realize that there is a difference between Climate change and weather change? Maybe if I were a skier I would appreciate longer winters.

For more information, visit: The class is not just for experienced people, but I ask that beginners who sign up, to PLEASE have a "simple" design in mind. Most students finish more than 4 projects during the 8 weeks.

Questions?  Please contact me via email:    Thanks!

It's a game . . .

Today, I'm reading many posts about "I don't care about your Farm, Zoo, Mafia, whatever" game on Facebook. I find it interesting that I continue to get daily quotes which make little sense from people who refuse to join in games. Now there is even advice on how to Hide what you don't want to receive. Isn't that called "censorship?" This social network should be a game of "give and take" just like in life and business. . .

Speaking of Business, March, the "Sculpture" month at Eye Candy Gallery will feature some exciting work. I'm offering a peek to those who may be interested. . .

The pieces shown above, are done by Randy Oldrieve and others are done by Thomas Ott

Almost Valentines Day

It seems that the snow will never stop. Earlier today, as I looked out the gallery window, the sun was shining and the flakes were huge. It gave me the impression of a "snow globe", those silly things filled with water and glitter that when shook gave the appearance of a snow storm in a glass container.

Flowers were delivered - red roses and red carnations - what a surprise. No, the flowers were not for the lady of the house -- instead SHE sent flowers to HIM. He loved that.

The gallery is filled with beautiful things for loved ones.
This is my first attempt at blogging . . . I'll be back with more!
