Valentine’s Day is only a few days away!

This sweet holiday always seems to sneak up on me.  As of this post there are only eight days until Valentine’s.  I have a few red, pink, love, and heart themed pieces available to ship today.   These items can be purchased on LeMyers Designs Facebook shop.

The Multi-Strand Bracelet Workshop at DeBrand Fine Chocolates on January 24th is now full.  Guests are still welcome to stop by DeBrand and shop LeMyers! We’ll have a nice selection of jewelry available for purchase, including some pieces that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Check the Workshops and Events tab for upcoming events.  Or schedule a private workshop; great for birthdays, bachelorette parties, or any occasion!  Participants have a blast using their creativity to design their own one of a kind, handmade piece.  For those who are “anxious” about creating, there will be plenty of examples to inspire or duplicate!  Contact Leslie for group workshops.

Studio Renovation: The Process

We (well, Todd) added a 3 ft. strip to the room, a 7 x 10 ft. room, and a new closet for Todd.  This means we had to take away about 7′ from the length of our basement, as well as a 3 ft. strip.  But our basement was so loooooong that it doesn’t appear much shorter.  Here are some pics to help describe the remodel.  Next post will be exciting pictures of the completed project.

Looking at double doors into studio from living area. Double doors and wall removed; wall bumped out by about 3 ft. and single door re-installed.



Brody the dog is very upset that we are taking 7 ft. off the back wall.
