Groovy Baby!

I'm in a fun & funky groove - yeah baby.

I've been jolted by a wake-up call (which I'll blog about later).

The sun is shining and the warmth soothes my soul.

Designing & creating new earwires.

Cleaning my house & dancing to the sounds of good old rock n roll.

Creating new earrings - like my Groovy Iced Blue Flowers above.

Jotting down some new ideas for metal pieces.

More dancing.

Making my to-do list for this weekend.

Rearranging my kitchen cabinet.

Not knowing where this energy is coming from, but loving it.

Gotta go... Bob Seger is calling me.

Happy day everyone - enjoy your weekend!

"Cleared for Landing"... or... "My Amazing Hubby"

So you might think by looking at this photo that this is one tough dude who has a funny hairstyle. You’re wrong. Very wrong. Well, not about the hairstyle. This is my best friend, my soulmate, my husband, the love of my life – Mark.

Don’t worry, I won’t go on and on about how wonderful he is, how much he loves me unconditionally, takes care of me, does the dishes (yes, I said dishes), supports me, listens to me, helps me with shows & events… oh gosh, sorry.

He has a good heart, is friend to many, loves animals and they love him. He even loves me knowing that no matter how ‘old’ I get, I’ll never grow old. I’ll always be a kid at heart.

What brought me to blog about this, is my crud has been acting up and makes it hard to do much of anything. Mark doesn’t complain one little bit about having to do practically everything for me during these times. I am so blessed and can't imagine my life without him. It is simply amazing how much this man does for me. Must be my good karma.

Oh, about that hairstyle. I always cut his hair, well, not like that. Anyway, one day when I wasn’t feeling so hot I accidentally grabbed the wrong attachment clip. I always start in the middle. I froze after the first buzz (literally). He laughed about it. I did too, after I got over the shock of it. I wanted a photo to remember this moment as it was so funny. I made him give me a ticked off look as I thought it made for a good photo.

Happiness to all,

p.s. Yes, he knows I've posted this - he STILL thinks it is funny!

Sock it to Me!

So while I was on Flickr today posting some of my new pics and looking around, I came across these very colorful, fun and amazing sock puppets! The cutie above is appropriately named "Punk" and the description is, well... go read it, you'll love it!

"Chicken" caught my eye next. I ♥'d her shop and then had to blog about it.

The creator of these fun loving sock puppets is Sian ("pronounced Shahn for those not familiar with Welsh") and she is from the UK. Sian also loves to paint and draw. Go visit her shop to see for yourself at siansburys - you won't regret it!

Have a happy day!

Tile + Cabinets = Rockin' Rocki

I'm so happy with my new tile and hall cabinets that I'm about to burst. Okay, well maybe not, but close to it.

While the work was being done I was out of my studio for about a week (boy was that a long week - I think time stood still!). The house pretty much looked like a maze and I wasn't very productive, but it was well worth it. I finally moved everything back in, but decided to give the whole room a new fresh look so I rearranged it too. It flows much better between my beading, metal and paint tables now. I absolutely LOVE it!

Is my room always this clean? For the most part yes - when I'm not working like a mad woman in it. I'm not a neat freak by any means, but I am a fairly organized person - with chaotic tendancies.

Happy day everyone!

Oh, and yes, I still have a piece of the garage!
