July Happenings...

Well, I am beyond busy right now. I am getting ready for my two biggest art shows of the year, which I scheduled on back-to-back weekends...well it sounded like a good idea when I did it. I am a whirlwind of wire and stones right now.

I promised that I would post a link to my TV interview. I will not get into the fact that I have watched this 1,000 times and wish I could redo the whole thing (oh wait- I just did, didn't I?). I am extremely proud that I had this opportunity.


Alas...I do not claim to be tech savvy and could not, for the life of me, figure out how to embed this video!

I also wanted to share a few pictures from our beautiful Lake Michigan. We love to go there late in the day and watch the sunset.

I will be sure to post pictures of the happenings at my big art shows. If you are in Michigan come by and check them out!

Saugatuck Village Square Arts and Fine Crafts Show
July 31 from 10-5

Holland Art in the Park
August 7 from 9-5

I am so excited to have the opportunity to be included on eightWest, a local west Michigan television show that highlights local artists and businesses. Through the show, I am giving away this copper moon necklace.

I will post more information as I receive it, and also post a link to my interview.
The show will air Monday July 19th at 11 am on WOODtv 8 out of Grand Rapids.

Wish me luck!!

Soul Mates...

"The luckiest people on Earth live two lives,
The second one begins the moment they fall in love."
~unknown quote

I was a wild child, running free
Belonging nowhere.
Wandering everywhere.

He stopped me in my tracks
And took my hand.
I blindly went with him.

Our souls remembered each other.

Now, we two run together.
Both still wild.
Bound together by something
We do not wholly understand.

It is sacred to us.

Celebrating ten years of marriage to my best friend and soul mate.

Mina's Treasure

"You are but mortal woman.
Time is now to be dreaded - since once he put that mark upon your throat."

And the Winner Is...

Well, I finally persuaded the Mad Hatter to pull the winner's name from his magical, feathered hat (we all know that time does not work the same in Wonderland as it does in our mundane world and he couldn't understand why I was in such a rush). And the winner of my copper barrette is...
