5.28.2008' the little things..

I was recently blessed by an email
from miss lisa leonard. she makes
silver baubles and oh are they sweet!

i went with the ever so teeny tiny initials. s.o.u.l. after
my little studio. i figure i can wear this to gallerys, art
festivals and meetings. a simple way to remind people
of my business.

lisa also keeps track of her daily grind here.
she has a beautiful family story...

i don't wear much jewelry. i have 2 favorite
necklaces that i wear daily, my frida and my
superhero. i now have this soulful piece.

on a very impressive note. lisa uses her jewelry
to perform random acts of kindness, i know
this first hand. she also has special sales and
send off the proceeds to special groups. recently
she sent one honor of this family.

please take the time to visit lisa. i have to say this
necklace is so well made, simple and fun. people
noticing it on my neck! because it is GORGEOUS!

now go see lisa!
[in case you forgot...silvery baubles here.]



as charlie would say....ugh!

delilahblue is two!

just finished another girl. i loved her so.
i had planned on posting her here, so that
you could see. my new powershot ate my
saved images. so if there are any canon
users who know how to recover images
off the sim card. please, i am all ears.

she is a pretty spunky and i would love
for the world to see that after three
dry months, kelly pulled a new piece
out of her tush. [ not literally, that would

finally finished up my wedding announcements
job. walked to the local ice cream shop and ate
a turtle [today is my cheat day] but i only
got a small. delilah blue went along for the
walk. today my sweet pooch turned 2. we
love her so. hopefully we will be adopting
a pooch sibling for her within the next year.
i think she would think that is swell.
my college grad has been here for a week,
working for me. pulling my arse out of the
trenches. she is fast and meticulous....two
things this mommy is not! but it allowed me
to get some painting done and spend time
with her.
the other two babes have spring fever and
they are driving me crazy. one talks constantly
and the other strums his guitar rather than
studying for finals.
big BIG class reunion coming in 2 months. one
of my dearest friends is coming in from san francisco.
i haven't seen her for at least 18 years. i can't wait.
i have been using the "body for life" system for 3
weeks now. i don't feel like i have lost weight. but
my fav button up didn't cling to my belly and i am
running 1/2 hour 4 days a week. so that is something
to build on. right?! you betcha.
my soul sister stopped by today, yes miss thang
i know you are reading this. see the drought has
cleared, i posted. you brighten my days, kindred
spirits i would have to say. now get on that
bike and ride!
peace to each of you. hope life is fine.

"I don't ever want to go," he told Harper's when asked about dying.
"I don't have a sense of great reality about the next world; my feet
are too ugly to wear those golden slippers. But I'm working on my
fear of it. And my fear is that something interesting will happen,
and I'll miss it."

thank you mr. rauschenberg for coloring the world.
