Long Time No Post!

I'm so sorry for my total lack of postings, it has been way too long! This has been a big year for the Dada family. My husband's job has moved us to beautiful Denver Colorado! We loved Ojai California (still do) but this was a wonderful opportunity and we couldn't say no. So we packed up our house and drove out to Colorado and a new chapter in our lives. While we were spoiled with incredible weather in Southern California, here in Colorado I am excited to see what it's like to have seasons. I will learn how to shovel snow and right now the aspen trees in our new backyard are turning a beautiful yellow. I also saw my first Black-Capped Chickadee the other day, I've been making my little beaded chickadees for years but never saw a real one in person! I am happy to say that this week I have fully unpacked my new studio here at the new house. No more working in a dark garage for me! I have a the whole front room all to myself. I set up my work table right in front of the bay window where I can watch the birds in the front yard. I've jumped right into making inventory for the holidays so keep an eye out for lots of new birdies and ornaments this month starting with this new Clip-on Hummingbird!

Back In The Studio

It is a new year and after a much needed break for the holidays, I am back to work in the studio! This past holiday season was one of the best I have ever had, I sold out of everything I made for Christmas and I have received such wonderful feedback and stories from my customers. I have big plans and I am so looking forward to what this year will bring.
This little Chickadee is my first new piece for this year. My tiny perching Chickadee was so popular last year, I decided to make him into a flying ornament. Look out for more birds, wedding pieces and big projects in 2012!
