I can't stop with designs. I am having a ball and no, I barely sleep for my little brain is always going, going and going. I have had a thing for pendants, quirky, funny, meaningful and inspiring. And do not forget all things nature, especially bees and nests. So, why not make my own pendants? I am in process and will soon add to my etsy site. Stay tuned for more.

Also, my Robin's babies hatched...pic to follow. Oh my babies.

Morning Glory, Tell me your story...

Oh yes...a moment of sunshine

Finally today a burst of sun and a warm swell that had my vines reaching, my birds chirping and my bees-a-buzzing. Yes, I call them "my" as they feel like mine... my little spring companions. I took a moment from my latest endeavor (Etsy) and did one of the things I love best. I puttered, painted, planted, seeded, arranged and loved every minute. I repainted my table and chairs in bright summer hues. I fussed about planting little climbing seeds to watch and wonder. I arranged my patio and then did it some more.

For me, there is something about being outside, digging in the earth, talking to my plants and birds that makes me feel just great. Peaceful. It is how the colors look in the spring, so crisp and alive. It is the smell of nature bursting.

My etsy site is getting lots of views and I am collecting "hearts" daily. I have had seven sales and have heard back wonderful reviews from all. I will post my first international sale, Rebecca of Canada, photo of my original art in her living room as soon as I get more time. Very exiting.

It also makes me feel a bit vulnerable putting my stuff out there like that. It is exciting and a bit scary all in one. Come take a peek...

May bring on the flowers...

I am DONE with showers...
I have added some new pieces to my Etsy account and hope to spread the word. I am amazed at the encouragement from friends and strangers alike. Etsy is a great place to have a shopping adventure. I love the unique finds, the level of service and meeting other artists. I may be managing to spend as much as I make.

This is a new side of art for me to explore. I love the mix of graphic art, original art and inspirational words. The end result of many steps to distress and add patina, is one of warm age like an old piece that has hung around for generations.
