surrounded by a sea of boxes.

Let the moving commence.
Tomorrow is the day of our big self move 2.5 miles away.
Are we crazy....maybe a little to do such a short move.
Change is good though right?
As the cardboard smell is waifing through this house, I find myself very anxious.
So off I go to clean like Rosie the Robot.
Be back soon....

"What do you want to be when you grow up Olivia?"

Dancing with the Stars...I guess we are busted on what we watch at home huh?

Can't blame her for dreaming big though.

Now to enjoy the next few months before real school starts..yikes.

Happy summer!!

fruition...










WOW.
Thank you to all of you who showed up or encouraged me through this first street fair.
It was a success on many levels and my mind is spinning with new ideas.
To take a little dream from a corner room in my home and out into the world to share it with all of you, leaves me speechless.
My heart is full.
Thank you thank you.

eeks,tomorrow is the big day.

"Me feel pretty" is about to take flight.
Where finally all my hard work will move from this bookshelf, to a pretty little 10x10 spot at Seabee Days.
The excitement is overwhelming, in a fantastical way!
It's a small venue, but a perfect place to start.
Funny this morning as I was setting up my canopy that I was clearly the new kid on the block.
If you live in Ventura county, come by and see me.
It would be fantastic to see some familiar faces.
For now I have to get spiffed up for Olivia's preschool graduation.
Amazing how time flies.
Dressing her in a cap and gown at age 4 is just surreal.
She is a smart little cookie though and I will for sure be the proud mom crying as they say her name.
Cheers to a wonderful weekend.

Tears of joy...I love when that happens.

So it was, back in April, I took an amazing workshop class with the sweetest Christine.
Her talent is beyond and I couldn't wait to make one of these beauties.
To say I was nervous to solder for the first time was an understatement, but I was thrilled to find how simple it was.
Not to mention calming, as I watched the metal flow.
So this is what my end product turned out to be.
For my Mom...


Seeing this picture always brings tears to my eyes and I knew there could be no better one to use for this project.
It was taken of my my and aunt (twins) when they were about 3.
My aunt has since passed, hence the wings.
My hope is that this brings you peace and joy Mom.
As much as it did me to make this treasure for you.
