More On Sea Glass

These beautiful bottles are filled with wonderful sea glass. They are covered in bridal veiling (gold) and the bottles are trimmed in ribbon and a flower, embellished by a rhinestone.
The tag attached features a vintage bathing beauty and reads:


A collection of sea glass in a keepsake bottle.

The Sea And Me

Here are my latest workings with Sea Glass. Still trying to learn how to drill it. Any help would be appreciated.

Finally New Etsy Is Up!!

It's up finally, with a few things on it. Hopefully, I will have more on today or soon anyway. The address is still the
It's all about game piece art. I've really gotten into that lately. Stop by when you can. More about it later. I am off to an Estate sale. Gotta go!

Baby Keepsakes (sold)

Well, the rain has stopped it looks like. Supposed to be 80 degrees today. PERFECT Northern Californian weather for me! I love the fall! That ugly 100+ degree heat is gone, Thank God.
I am ready for another day. I am up early and ready for some coffee. As you can see I come straight to the computer first without even stopping for coffee. I guess that shows which I am more addicted to, now doesn't it?
What is doesn't show is my real addiction. That is ETSY. I love ETSY!!!! There are so many cool artists there I can't stant it. I just can't stay away! I swear I am there (yes, buying, too) every free moment I have! OMG, I am so hooked. In fact, I better go now, I might be missing something. More later friends.

Ohhhhhh, Domino....

More of my getting ready for OPEN STUDIOS. Time is getting shorter, I realize it everyday. This year I am doing it with a friend Helen Jurgenson. We have done other shows together, but never OS. We are doing it at my house this year, a total of 4 days. So much to do, so little time. I also have about 4 classes scheduled before that too. I hope my energy holds out! HA!
My head is swimming with ideas of things I want to do before then. I did get 2 framed pieces done today and 1 unframed piece. The pendants you see here were done today too, as I've been up since 5:30 AM. The kids just left, they were here for dinner, so I dont think I will get anymore done tonight, but I will start in again early tomorrow. See you then.

Bird Brain

Everyone seems to love birds now, including myself. I just can't get enough of them. My ETSY site is full of them. I am constantly collecting them. I am lucky enough to live in a bird haven. I can sit in my living room window and see tons of different kinds. My cats go nuts, and speak a funny language to them, through my huge windows. It's a cackling/talking kind of thing, very funny! Like teeth chattering almost. Enjoy these images.
To see more go

Mixed Media, My Real Salvation

Paper beads and formica samples, still a fav of mine that I go back to from time to time. Since I have been on this jewelry kick lately and have been teaching in bead stores, beads have begun fascinating me. Oh, no!! Just what I need, another addiction!!!
My little studio is already bursting at the seams now. How can I bear to part with any of my treasures to make room for more? You know I will get bored with this in time and will go back to something else as I can never stay with one thing long. I am truly the meaning of "Mixed-Media Artist." The "Mixed" is my brain part. The "Media" just means I can't decide which art supply to use. Ya know? HA!!
Back to that too small studio.....

My So Called "Charmed" Life

More, more, more of my wonderful charmed life. This life I lead allows me to teach others to make awesome charms with meaning. Charms that people can wear, share, keep as heirlooms, or use as healing pieces or fragments of their own life stories. These are made from domino's. Look for more in the coming week made on even more unusual items. So fun!

Games People Play

I know. I've been gone quite a while now. Life got in the way. Art got in the way. I just plain ran out of time. Time to write about it. Time to breathe. Time to take time. Ya know??? LOL!!! I am back now. I missed coming here. I totally over extended myself. Like that's something new.
Oh,well. LOL.
Well, here is my new doll. I embellished her. Then I hung some scrabble tile charms, all over her. I am on this game piece charm thing right now. I am making charms out of EVERYTHING!!!! And I mean EVERYTHING!!! Watch my ETSY store and see what I mean.
Also check out my daughter's new ETSY store at:
