After our diaper drive photo shoot this morning, we're back to work. Rosemary has been working on this lovely rocking chair for the past few days. I decided to grab a quick snapshot of Rosemary painting the chair. Keep Sow's Ear Studio in mind for painted gifts for your kids.
Well, thanks to local people of the capital region, Sow's Ear Studio was able to collect 52 boxes of diapers for SICM. Rosemary & Lauren are filled with joy to be able to this for single mothers & mothers that are not able to afford to buy diapers. Sow's Ear Studio was not aware of the fact either that you're not allowed to buy diapers with food stamps. We feel good that we helped others out this holiday season. See the diaper drive at Sow's Ear Studio for next year.
52 diapers collected from local people. Thanks for your help.

It seems like every Sunday, mom & I are working at home preparing items for the shop & online shop. Well, we finally decided to do something as a family. Dad ask us if we wanted to go to a Siena basketball game. Mom & I said yes. We had a great time at the game & a nice dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Mom got a chance to enjoy a nice birthday outing as well.

Custom work is Rosemary's big thing, even when she spends time with her daughter in the shop. Rosemary's big client brought this lovely bookshelf in for a new grandbaby. The client wanted a woods theme on the bookshelf. Rosemary did her magic and these are the winning results. Rosemary pulled out all of the stops with owls, birch trees, leaves, and much more. This is a picture of Rosemary painting the owls on the side of the bookshelf.
The bookshelf has a mommy, daddy, and baby boy on each side. No woods is complete with a deer on each side as well. See what Rosemary can do for your little one this winter.
