May your coming year...

- be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.  I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year you surprise yourself.

Are you Ready? 18 Days until Art-a-Day January 2016!!!



I'm beyond excited to launch into Art-a-Day 2016! 
Will you join us?

This is day 3 in my new studio space since selling our home and significantly downsizing 6 months ago. I am so excited to start making again. 

I'll be returning this year to a long time idea of making 29 totally unique heart brooches/pins and building a display for them, something like a February Heart-a-Day advent calendar (including leap year) of one-of-a-kind wearable hearts.  

Part of my goal is to stretch creatively both in design and materials. Last year during Art-a-Day January I completed five pin/brooches.  Below is the first: steel construction strapping and sterling silver.  Wonderfully Steampunk in look and feel.
