For the love...

...of rainy days...

...and pretty things... is very easy to get discouraged by everything not getting done in life.  when, by nature a person who already tries to do too much, also tries to take on more, discouragement is unavoidable.

New Inspiration

There are some new pieces on the horizon. 
Inspired by spring, summer, playful colors,
and rough natural gems.

Gardening Therapy

We got to spend a nice evening with Mom
planting in her lovely new garden.

It was so relaxing, with a nice glass of red wine. 
hopefully it will also be rewarding over the summer!

This evenings challenge started with an idea for something new for etsy. 
A few hours (and burns) later, this prototype maybe a once only original owned by me. 
Only the creator can love such a flawed piece.

Normal Day

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.  Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.  Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. 
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.  One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world, your return."
