inspiring tidbits about my life and art.

Frosty mug sensation

It was -12F when I left for the grocery store this am. The trees and plants are glistening in hoarfrost and are incredible. I could easily spend all morning playing with my camera outside. Instead, I went into my studio to check the temp. A wee bit chilly in there too!

Seed pods and seed beads

I’ve been beading a lot lately…a habit I picked up from my mom at an early age. There’s really no coincidence that it’s what I’m drawn to in my studio right now. 

It is Dr. Seuss day!

It is Dr. Seuss day and I am reminded of one of my favorite books from my childhood. I was 8 when I started filling out this book by ME, Myself.
I remember counting windows (51) in my house, the number of forks (32) we owned and that we had 52 pictures on the walls. And, since I now live in the same house that I did when I was 8 and filling out this book, I wonder what’s changed….

If you have kids in the house who love Dr. Seuss (and really, who doesn’t?!?) and might be a bit bored, or needing something to do, I highly recommend this book. It will keep them busy, allowing you some likely needed down time.

It’s officially spring.


Or is it April Fools Day? You never really know here. 

Snow is forecasted for tonight.

However, any sign of spring is welcome, especially the first blooms of my garden.




It is National Crayon Day. What could be more fun than a day dedicated to crayons?!?

 It’s what’s on the inside that matters when it comes to this piece titled, “Grace”.  The real life Grace is one of my favorite humans in the world. She is bright, funny and much, much, MUCH taller than she is in this sculpture. Her personality shines and continues to bring me joy, just like crayons do.
