life.

in this now
clinging to bare limbs
from bones of winter
a song
two
three
fifty.nine
adorning into puffs of white and
magenta
pinks and blushes
while the world watches
in breathless exhausted anticipation
and
one moment of spinning emergence

life erupts.

gloriously.

raw.tangible.poetry

my first creations of a fiber pendant were back in 2001 when i decided to wrap silk scraps with wire and beads... made a handful of those then moved on to other creations... so today i am returning to my roots.  and basking in thready.luscious.goodness.  my new fiber pendants - made with scrap threads from other projects and copper wire, can be found for sale HERE.  i'm calling it the "WILDEBEAST" Series. it is just the pendant itself.  it can be used as jewelry, an ornament, a keyfob, whatever your heart's desire.. it is true raw tangible poetry.  either way it will bring you bliss.

she inspires.me

one of my favorite artists - the fabulous alisa burke - is celebrating her birthday all week with giveaways and a sale for all her on-line classes... i took her Summer Sketch class last year and it has been such a good thing for me - getting out of an arty-block-rut - and learning to play in my sketchbook without having to really think about it... she's doing another type of class for Spring - Sketch Into Spring... it also has been great for me to get the kids to doodle alongside me with a prompt... either way - check out her stuff and see if it might be something to jumpstart your spring with!

some of my journal doodles..

percolating.hibernating

i've been knitting.  in the round.  first hats made this way ever by my fingers.  it was a good zen.like need for me.  while hibernating.  in this cold winter.  and small insignificant doodles.  while dreaming up ideas in my head for future arty.morsels... and sledding.  and letting the littles make arty messes...










this is me telling myself to "just do something".
