A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Dear, Deer, My Dears

Last week, my husband glanced out back of our house to see seven deer standing there. By the time he found the camera, which I'm always using for my Etsy photos, only two deer were visible. The rest were grazing--if you can graze in the snow--just out of site of the camera. Here's what he captured on film... Forget it, I can't locate the photo!

Well, I came across this old photo of my two "dears" and me taken umpteen dozen years ago. I love this picture. They're so cute, my dear ones. They're all grown up now and their little ones look exactly the same.

Pleasant dreams of snow-grazing, Christmas dears, little ones, cuties...

Embellished Neck Accents Worth the Time

My newest neck accent or collar has been a delight to create. I hope you feel like it's worth it as much as I do. It seems that if you're willing to take the time, more creative ideas will come to you. I'm wrapped up in these new pieces, for sure, and enjoying every minute.

Pleasant dreams of Spring coming, wonderful designs coming into being, longer days with which to enjoy, and all that's nice...

Just finished this one. Another will be posted in a day or two.I hope you like them.

Time to Move Forward with Unfinished Business

I'm sad to see it go, but happy someone will love wearing it; that is, my Complete the Circle Headband shown below has sold.

Time to get busy. I have two necklaces in the works and two collars or neck ornaments. I need to finish them and get them photographed. 

Seems like something is always getting in the way, doesn't it! I get a new idea and abandon a project, midstream, to indulge myself. Then, it's difficult to go back to the original project. I must have about ten unfinished pieces in my workshop. 

Do you find this happens to you? Am I normal, or do I need a drug for ADD?

Pleasant dreams of creative images so powerful you won't forget them when your current projects are completed. Dreams of a constant influx of great designs. Dreams of beautiful ideas that will wait patiently in the hollows of your mind. Dreams of project completion and an excellent feeling of satisfaction... Pleasant dreams of...
