To all of you, Happy Thanksgiving! I'm eating "not turkey" since I'm a vegetarian, and lots of tasty veggies! I've been exploring the raw diet for two years, eating about 2 raw meals a day, ane one cooked. It makes you feel like a MILLION DOLLARS. Yay! If you're interested in more info, check out Alissa Cohen, David Wolfe, Paul Nison, Gabriel Cousens, and many more gurus in the raw food health movement. Lots of invaluable information. They all have websites and classes, and materials to purchase. These people are way ahead of their time.

This collage, mixed media piece may or may not be done, but it is for now. :) The sands of time reminds me of generations, and how we women evolve. Our ancestors "bleed through" to the current time as the paper collage in the back suggests. I love doing collages, but I never know where the piece will end up. For the most part I don't have any plans, I just go along as the moment seizes me. Some collages don't work out at all... but hey, you can always gesso over it, and have a fresh canvas with interesting texture. I just LOVE ART!!! Woo-hoo...

Mata Hari's Secret is the name of my latest charm bracelet creation. A secret lover is sending her a message in the hidden locket, and the charms remind her of the all too brief times they spent together. Lots of charms, vintage beads, and Swarowski crystal for that element of bling. This bracelet is for sale on etsy, so if you get a hankering, visit my store! :)
Busy, busy, busy making Christmas presents for friends and customers. 'Tis the Season... Ho, ho, ho.

As opulent as any palace mirror comes my purple and pink mosaic mirror. I like over the top colors and mosaics, could you guess? Sorry about the pictures, but the full picture is not good.
I've been busy researching print making of my originals, and it's interesting. I haven't really found any print that has come out just the way I want it, but I keep trying... If you have any great sources for prints let me know.

I've been trying for weeks to get a blue morning glory picture, and I finally got one. I know it's not perfect, but I absolutely love the color! It had started to wilt and the purple color on one edge is fabulous!
Then I took a picture of the ONE red leaf I found in the yard. Here in FL the leaves kind of dry and fall off, no colors to speak of.
I'm waiting for my second crop of tomatoes. They are green now, and I have some cucumbers coming.
