On November 1st the Christmas Handworks Bizarre at FMC Starkville was another blessing. The entry fees and other items sold at the Bizarre go towards funding a house for Habitat for Humanity and it was another great event to be a part of. I sold approximately 50 small ornaments and as many large bells as I had painted.
The first True Maroon Week was great! So thankful my Reaves Ringer won 1st place in the Design competition at Mississippi State University. It was great seeing all of the different bells and hearing the traditions behind them also!
As Christmas is approaching, Reaves Ringers has never been more busy! But, even though this season in life is busy, I am seeking to set my focus on what the celebration is about: The birth of my King and Savior. He is what matters.
Here’s a little of what’s been going on with Reaves Ringers:
The name should now be Free Ringers as of 6.29.13
Along the line of our mini cowbells, that my talented mom made for our “Wedding Send-off,” I have explored other uses for these little bells. I love working on the “regular” sized cowbells but wanted to see if a painting would work on these miniature cowbells. So, I painted two quick small bells for a gender-reveal party at a MSU tailgate for the wonderful Adams family:
After making these, I thought that these bells would make the perfect size for ornaments!
This is a snapshot of my work in progress so far with mini Reaves Ringers. Bully cowbells are $10 and all others are $15 (plus shipping if necessary). Visit the Christmas Ornaments Page for a look at bells I have posted. If you are interested in a particular bell, post a comment underneath the photo. (if it is for a gift that you don’t want posted to the public page, let me know in the comment). Otherwise, I will be at the Handworks Bazaar:
