Wire play....More

This wire stuff is addicting! I love doing free-form anything, so these were fun.
The copper pendant goes with "Tucson Blues" and the silver one is called "Maudette".
"Maudette" has sterling silver wire, pearls, Swarovsky crystal, and a larger faceted Blue Topaz focal bead. It will look nice with black leather or silver chain.

Spring Cleaning...Inside and out!

I spent all afternoon on Sunday re-organizing my craft room, setting up a work space for some new Altered Art projects.

I, being the pack-rat that I am, am having a blast finding old junk stuff, old things I had saved, knowing that I could use them one day! My man thinks I'm crazy! (Seems that men have their own pack-rat issues, such as tools, old wood, nails, buckets of all kinds of stuff! My man will drag home some of the weirdest things and tell me he will use them one day)

I also set this room up for my peaceful space.

It's becoming spring out here in Arizona, which means raking, burning weeds, hauling trash and branches, getting the garden ready to plant, and a new fruit tree orchard.
My flower beds are cleaned up, and I hope the Zinnias will come back this summer, along with some others I tried to get to grow in this desert!


Kath was my best friend, even during her addictions, her confusion, her instability. I remember who she REALLY was... a loving, compasionate, giving, funny-as-hell, kick ass woman. Kathy... I love and miss you so much . My heart hurts because I couldn't help you and had to detach. I was so honored that ya waited for me to be with you when you crossed over. Keep on kickin' ass on the other side babe.
