Wear Your Colors

Some new badges:

The back of the badge and a ceramic bracelet with Gorey's Black Doll - I find making the bracelets in the natural bone color with a small amount of black ink very satisfying.

Emma and Julija......friends...sisters....cosmic twins...

The sounds of these happy, giggling friends are so comforting to me.

A Walk on the Wild Side

Dipping my big toe into the world of ceramics. 

Gold dipped strawberries; a reality for me only in a world made of clay.

Lions, Tigers, and Bears

Oh, my!

Making Beads

I've wanted to make some ceramic beads for a while and finally found some time and materials to do it.

Christmas 2011

The house gift from Santa this year........fake mustaches.  "Any of you rascals touch my presents and I'll shoot ya full of lead!"

Julija and Allie at Pops.  Patiently waiting to sit on the "chair," under the hot lights and on display, while opening their presents.  Don't ask...., but if it requires a water bottle you might guess it's grueling!

Mac gets an Occupy hat- very cool, one side has the mirror image of Occupy, so it sort of looks like it's written in Russian!

Julija gets ready to attack the presents

What is that "blue box"?

hummmm....for me?

I drew the Division 10 section of the Long Trail for Mac-

Julija got a Stitch and Bitch book along with yarn and needles.  Can you say handmade knit stuff?....yippie!

Happiness = Good company, cookies, handmade gifts, and smart wool socks!
