Honey, I'm HOMMMEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"There's no place like home."

It's such a cliche, but the saying above is so true. No matter what winds are blowing where you live, in which you live, being home is the best place.

Even though the distance and the break was good for me, I missed my hammers. I missed my stones! I missed not being connected to my customers...

My sweet son Evan and I returned from Washington state late Sunday afternoon, and I've been busy ever since. This is a livelihood for which I have endless passion. It is my life! And for that I am so grateful!
We had a great time visiting my mother, and now I look forward to the last quarter of the season with excitement and anticipation.

I've ordered boxes for the holidays, added at least 30 more new designs to my sites (yes, even MORE!) and I'll be adding more in the weeks to come. I have trunk shows to prepare for, a catalog order to get moving on. I am so excited about what the future holds for this middle-aged gal.

The three images you see here are part of my "Exotic Fern Series", all new etched works that feature a fern pattern taken from a henna tattoo.
Henna tattoos are found in some eastern cultures, particularly India, where women's hands are adorned with some of the most gorgeous designs and patterns.
This might sound strange, but I can feel my spirit in these pieces. They are me and I am them. They are what makes me great. They are what makes my work my own. They are my totems of authenticity!
