2014 ~ Touch Wood Rings ~ a year in review
Touch Wood ~ 2014.
This was fun!
I picked one couple and their rings from each month last year to showcase as a kind of 'year in review'. We work with so many wonderful people in the course of a year. Thank you all for coming into our lives and for entrusting us with the creation of your rings.
Here's hoping 2015 finds you feeling energetic and optimistic
and doing what you love with those you love.

2014 was a good year! Much love and many thanks to all our old friends ~ we look forward to hearing from you from time to time.
And on to the new year, 2015... If you're visiting our blog for the first time, or wandering through again for inspiration; welcome here. We'd like to share the beauty and the changing seasons on our 48 acre off-grid homestead with you too.
We have two blogs; this Wood Ring blog and our Homestone blog. There's our Touch Wood Rings primary website ~ which is a bit of a dinosaur ~ but still very active and chock full of good information. We have a fledgling Facebook page. You'll find some Touch Wood Ring pins on Pinterest,
and we have a Google+ page as well. I've been offering David's work online for almost 15 years but I've come late to the picnic of
social media. If you're on Facebook, I'd be delighted if you 'Liked' our page.
No matter where you find us ~ we love to hear from you! Thanks so much for stopping by! I look forward to talking with you, and David and I look forward to working with you. Wishing you all good things in 2015!
