Giving Thanks……

Words to live by, that is for sure “Give Thanks”.  They are the words I am going to concentrate on this holiday season.  We all have so many things to be thankful for!  I am just as guilty as the next person of losing sight of what is most important in my daily life.  I had an idea brewing to put that sediment right in front of my face every day.  I wanted something to display on my mantel above the fireplace.  I constantly walk by it so, I will see it every time I pass by.

Give Thanks, seems to be a popular phrase around Thanksgiving.  I found a picture at the’s websiteGive-Thanks-Mantel.jpg.rendition.largest

This is so wonderful and just they type of idea I had in mind.  This one is just too seasonal though.  I needed it to be appropriate year round.  Being that we are gardeners and love the fall color scheme, I decided to use that as my jumping off point.  A gander at the molds gave me this idea…………


Now this will work nicely in my livingroom!  Let’s get started and see if I can come close to the professional presentation above!  Stay tuned……. Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
