Getting Rid Of Cord Clutter: Easy As A Pile Of Rocks!

Getting Rid Of Cord Clutter: Easy As A Pile Of Rocks!

Wish I’d thought to take a “before” picture, because my desk was a MESS! Two days ago, my computer workstation was the most depressing place to sit and now it’s my favorite spot in the house! There was a Spanish/English dictionary under my monitor (for height, I don’t need the dictionary anymore!)  and there was […]

Collecting Nature Treasures, It’s What We Do

Collecting Nature Treasures, It's What We Do

Your husband calls it clutter, you call it essential.  You’re not alone! Nature treasures keep us sane when indoors. Our husbands should thank us for cluttering. I’m still hard at work getting my new website and line of fine art prints ready for launch :)  I was pleasantly surprised when I went searching through my […]

Better Than Fireworks

Better Than Fireworks

These milkweed flowers in the prairie planting of a local park were the best fireworks I saw this Fourth of July!  (Followed at a close second by a brilliant crescent moon glimpsed through the clouds of spent firework smoke and third by the brave lightning bugs that ventured out despite the noise.) Here’s hoping you […]

Do you think stones are beautiful?

Do you think stones are beautiful?  Well, you’re not alone!  From japanese woodblock prints and nature photography to massive stone sculptures and humble painted river rocks, there are a whole lot of us who see the beauty and grounding energy behind the blank, stony facade of geology. Get a daily dose of stone love by […]

You Won’t Believe What I Found

You Won't Believe What I Found

Can you believe this fairy fungi forest was growing right by the sidewalk in the middle of the city?! I’m constantly amazed by the wonder moments I find on my daily stroll around the block.  Just when I start to feel grumpy and annoyed at city life, an amazing moment of grace finds me and […]

Stone Love: A Tour Of My Jewelry Studio

Stone Love: A Tour Of My Jewelry Studio

The grounding energy of pounding surf and of pebbles underfoot endures long after the stones and I leave the beach.

A Father’s Day Success Story

A Father's Day Success Story

Well, shucks.  I’m humbled to have helped this 2 year old and her parents have such a happy, love-filled Father’s Day.  It’s not about the presents, but you’ve got to admit, getting presents is a pretty great perk! (Look at all those exclamation points!  Great minds punctuate alike!!) “This necklace is FABULOUS and BEAUTIFUL! The […]

Wonder is Every Moment, a new artwork in progress

Spring’s fast fading! (And I’m working on new art pieces!! Who says cell phone pics can’t be fine art?) I’m working on a new piece that will be hundreds of pictures of wonder. It’s great to still be able to make art with my little baby sidekick!
