Art Charm Swap




On the heels of the fabulous Art Bliss Retreat, where I participated in a leaf charm swap (photos to come) I am also participating in Jennifer Cameron’s Inaugural Art Charm Swap. She chose three colors from the fall color forecast and challenged readers to make an art charm using one of the three colors. I chose Living Coral and hand-mixed some enamel, hoping I could get close enough! I am really enjoying making my enameled beads right now, so made my charm with a filigree bead and a turquoise round. I really hope it’s close enough to the correct color!

Now, I’m off to reopen my etsy store and take out the listing that I SOLD at the Art Bliss Retreat! I also have a wicked sore throat today…

Birdhouse Gift!



My friend’s father (who is 91) makes the most incredible birdhouses. Today I was gifted with this one. The photos really don’t do it justice – when I have more time, I will take better photos but wanted to show you this incredible birdhouse. I am going to open an etsy store for him in a week or so – you just won’t believe them! I’ll show some photos when they’re up for sale!
