I am a self taught mixed media artist and instructor living in Virginia with my Husband and our family of fur babies. I love all things vintage and strive to use those discarded bits of artistic flotsam and jetsum in my creations. I also love finding those treasures that others can use to feather their souls and their nests so please check out my Etsy Shop as well. Thank you for stopping by.

Today's thought today took my breath away! I do, and I will. Thank you for your insight.

Lesley: I often reach for a pendant--fashioned by you--which I acquired two years ago at Art is You. I love it because it reminds me of you, your great classes, and the support I receive from you and Tom. Reading your post today, I realize that the necklace IS the talisman you describe. It is a thing of beauty, receives compliments when I wear it, and seems to make the day better! Lucky me.
