December 2010 Artfully Speaking

My Gift to Procrastinators

(page 2 of 2)


Check out art galleries for exclusive pieces of jewelry or objets d’art. A favorite of mine is The Blue Pomegranate at 6570 Maple St. You’re sure to find something in this whimsical shop filled with beautiful, colorful fused glass wall and table art, plus jewelry and lots more. Speaking of fused glass in the Benson area, pay a visit to one of Omaha’s best-kept secrets, Adventure in Art at 6001 Maple St. Owner/artist/author Kristi Pederson creates magical glass pieces. Shop her gift area for wall art, coasters, ornaments, etc.

Better yet, create your own fused glass gift at one of Kristi’s art classes. Kristi specializes in group art classes, nights of “fun first-art second.” Give your friends and family a night of creativity and enjoyment. (402-556-4278) While you are there, purchase Kristi’s new book of short stories, An Extraordinary Life…once you take out all the boring crap. As she states, “Most (of the stories) are humorous, some are touching and others are just the rants and raves of a woman gone mad.”

Finally, I wrote about this last month, but Camille Metoyer Moten’s CD, A Simpler Christmas, is an appropriate remembrance of the holiday and would make a great stocking stuffer. Available at the Bookworm, Omahans Camille and pianist/arranger David Murphy have packaged the perfect present.

Happy Holidays!
