Puzzle Boy Necklace

Shrinky Dinked Marcel Dzama's Puzzle Boy mounted on pink silk and repurposed kimono material:

Now, I really must do some work!

Marcel Dzama Shrinky Dink Pins

I made some Shriny Dinks with Marcel Dzama's little drawings in The Berlin Years.  They made pretty neat pins:


Man in a Robot Suit

 Creature down a hole in the ground

 Glue being put on a rabbit

Man inside a Slug Costume

Puzzle Head- (I've had many days like this recently, please return any extra puzzle pieces you may have)

Well that was fun.  I better do some real work now.  Hope you are enjoying your post-turkey days and eating some yummy leftovers.

Best in Show: Upcycled Blazer

So I just wore this masterpiece to do the grocery shopping-  there was a gentleman there dressed in 1930's red plaid Woolrich hunting pants and top,  he was certainly the "best in show" today!

Drawings of the Days

Over the last few weeks these emerged...from somewhere.

Loops, dots, and circles

Leaf dance

Fly away


Yes,  do let me.

Ok...back to my real life...

Snow Day

As I think of the coming winter some snow days from my past have emerged.

The Buffalo house- it usually looked like this all winter long!

Crater Lake,  Oregon- Mac and I snowshoed in through 17 feet (yes that's correct!!) of snow.
Looking forward to a snowy winter here in the green mountains of Vermont!
