To Do List

I sat down and wrote out a list of  things I hope to try and get done in time for when I have a vendor's table at The 21st Annual Denver Witches' Ball at the end of October.


 I hope to have more mosaic boxes, shrines and wall plaques to offer this year, as well as many of my best sellers from last year-- tarot bags, herbal pendulums and hand-held egg rattles. But The Witches' Ball is still  61 days away, so who knows what new ideas my muse might come up with in the meantime!

Around the Yard

My sundial lying on an old wooden patio table, surrounded by deadheaded zinnias...


A glorious sunflower unfurled its glory along the back yard fence...

Feline Friday: Kitty Cuddles

Lately, Sassafras has become quite the little cuddler...


... at least with the man in the family... 


Meanwhile, Dot is content to... NOT cuddle...

A Fresh Start

 Finally, finally, finally, after 8 long months that included two surgeries and cats with cancer and promotions at work and full time seasonal hours and tree branches breaking windows in my craft room, scattering glass everywhere, and fibro flares and chronic fatigue and family visiting-- finally, I am back to creating again! But first I had to get my work space in order.


Look fast, because it will not be clean like this for long...


I am constantly working to organize my supplies for claying, and I think I'm starting to get somewhere. My clay and all  my cutters and mica powders and paints are to my left, more tools and beads on my desk right in front of me and my rubber stamp collection for imprinting clays is on my right. For the most part all my favorite and frequently used tools and supplies are easily at hand, so I'm ready for some serious creating.

Now if I could just get my craft closet organized...
