Fiona -- Work in Progress

I have added hair to the art doll I was working on. Her name is Fiona. Looking at her now I see that one eyebrow is darker than the other. Time to go fix it.

Monday Mornings!

I spent all day yesterday in my studio happily making jewelry for Johnny Ruth. This morning, while driving through the pouring rain and listening to music -- Fleet Foxes, to deliver the order, the brakes went on the car. Yikes! Luckily, I was on a flat stretch with a parking lot close by where I pulled in and called my knight in shining armour, John, and he came and rescued me. :)

With the sun and warm temperatures and the rain, the buds are starting to come out on the trees and everything is lush and green! It will soon be time for fires outside in the evenings and coffee on the deck in the mornings. Can't wait for that.
Have a wonderful Monday!

Here is some new jewelry that I have listed in my Etsy Shop

Back Home!

I had the best vacation this year! I got to relax and read books and spend lots of time with family! The weather in Florida was beautiful and I spent most of my time outside by the pool listening to the wildlife that was all around me.
When I got home to the cold and fog, I became ill and spent a week on the couch. I'm all better now and I'm getting back into my studio again. I have several unfinished projects that I want to complete and a load of art work that needs to be inventoried and framed. I have a tendency to paint something and then put it in a pile. I'm going to start adding some mixed media paintings and art dolls to my store over the next month too.
