Etsy Front page

You might say I'm a late bloomer or maybe I just have too much on my plate. who knows. It's a statement I ponder from time to time but don't waste too much time on it. If you ask my husband he would say I take on too much. I suspect he worries that I do too much and then my body will fail me. I know his concern is genuine and I'm sure it's hard to watch the person you love so much be in pain because they bit off more than they could chew. I know for myself it's frustrating to be limited and have a body that fails me from time to time. I'm still young and it can be frustrating to feel like I'm much older because my body fails me every now and then. Usually it's me that has abused my body and not the other way around. I guess in my mind I'm doing things that a "normal" 35 year old would do and don't want to succumb to the limitations that my body has given me. Just last night, as we were enjoying our evening out, (it was our anniversary) I was telling him that I wanted to take guitar lessons. As soon as the words came out of my mouth and traveled through the air to his ears he said.... really? You have so much that you are doing already. When do you think you will be able to do that, when will you have the time???? I sighed and simply stated I'd find a way and I'm determined to. I miss playing music. I miss the therapeutic effects it has had on my life and I'm convinced I would have never made it through adolescence without it.

Anyway...back to the title. Due to all of the things I have going on days seem to slip by turning into weeks...turning into on and so forth. I kept meaning to post this great news but failed to do so...time didn't stop...days have turned to weeks but my excitement is still the same. I had the distinct honor to be featured in a treasury on etsy with some very talented artists. For those of you that don't know what a treasury individual chooses items that they like and then make a treasury list. Anyone that has an account on etsy can make a treasury list and be a curator of art. Luckily the management at ETSY also liked the list and placed it on the front page. Our list was featured on the front page of Etsy on July 24, 2010. Very exciting!

Enjoy looking at the list... My art is the midnight sky wired art card.

New items

I have unfortunately not been keeping up with my blog. I miss posting on it and will try over the next few weeks to do better. I have used my blog in the past to feature some very talented artists and poets as well as to display my own work. I have filled these pages with my thoughts on life, however random they may be, and my feelings at the time...sometimes happy and other times well as issues we all face whether environmental, social or cultural.

Today I bring to you my newest creations that were donated to the preschool I work at for the art shows silent auction. It's a wonderful place and I can honestly say I love going to work everyday. This past Sunday we had our annual art show and silent auction to raise money for the school and scholarship $ for families in need. It was a huge success and a GREAT turnout! Here is the website for those that want to take a peek at my fantastic job or if you are interested in finding a preschool that nurtures children through art as well as developing creative, critical thinkers.

SUN~ Mixed Media: paint, wood, wire
Painted with red, orange and yellow acrylic paint, I then placed a sealant on it and placed a copper wire sun on top.
Inspired out of my love for nature and respect for the sun. The sun breathes life into our trees, flowers, grass and ME! It warms my heart and puts a song in the bird's heart.

HURRICANE EARRINGS ~ Wire and black glass bead
Wire shaped and formed into a spiral representing a hurricane funnel with a black, faceted glass bead floating inside.
Again, inspired out of my love for nature as well as my deep respect for the power of wind.

STAINED GLASS WINDOW FLOWER ~ Light Blue and Orange Glass gems and solder
Inspired by spring and all the flowers starting to BLOOM!
