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!
