winery visit...



Here is Kris and Kenna at the winery....Fitzpatricks Winery! I am allergic to wine and so we did not drink any--we had the "plowman's lunch" which I had about 12 years ago... enjoyed it so much I had to go back!

coming to Sacramento....

Makena and I will be going to visit my Dad and StepMom in late June. We will be in the Sacramento area so if any of my art friends want to get together and do something artsy--please don't be shy--I love my art friends and am always open to meeting up....I put up the rooster cause one of my favorite things to do is hang out in the park in Fair Oaks and take pictures of the chickens--they just roam around the town and are so friendly!!!!

Happy Easter!


Makena and I did some "tie"dyeing yesterday--you cut up old silk ties and wrap the eggs, then wrap them in muslin and then boil them for 25 minutes--I can't wait to collect more ties for next year--yard sales and estate sales--here I come!!

The end of our trip


Wow! What an adventure. This is my best friend Kris--who you have met before--
We went to Art and Soul in Portland,Oregon and had a blast. Kris is new at art and retreats--but she had a wonderful time! This is us at the airport--we are both 50 this year and both of our numbers on the Southwest boarding passes were A50.............how strange is that?

Cordillia


Bernie
and I met on Friday and went to the TACA art show at Centennial Park in downtown Nashville. The weather was perfect-the artists were incredible ---but bestof all was Cordillia---the little 4 month old baby that Bernie brought along. Recently Bernie helped close down a local puppy mil--they removed over 700 dogs from one place--and this cutie was among them.

sneak peak...

Goddess Diana-one of my closest friends in this world, has been studying to be a Mom---Goddess does not do anything until she has studied and practiced and has got it "right".

Goddess and Noah (her hubby) are ready.............they are in the "time for a baby or babies" groove. Soooooooo it is time that I send the necklace that I have been designing and infusing with Love and Light, Peace and Healing and FERTILITY ! This piece was created especially for Goddess Diana and I have held on to it till the time was right---NOW!!! The time is right! So I shall mail it off and after she has received it I will post a picture of Goddess in her "Fertility Art"!
Love you guys, and have fun on this adventure!

I fell in love with these pearls at the last bead show so I just had to create a piece with them. The pearls are mixed with jadeite and some crystals and one lovely vintage crystal--
Hopefully this will move over to my etsy site soon --Yep--I have one and am planning on finally putting some of my artwork up for sale over there...
please stay tuned...
