One of my heroes....

.... has got to be Susan Boyle.
I'm going to watch this video daily. She is so inspiring!! And her singing is stunning!!! And she's singing 'I Dreamed a Dream'!!!!
OK, message received ;)

Take a look for the FULL experience of her recent appearance on Britain's Got Talent. If you don't feel better after this, email me and let's chat.

Garden Muse


Here's a 10" x 10" mixed media collage on stretched canvas. Lots of layers and paint, papers, gel transfer, stamping, collage image, flower. This will be available at Unique LA. The text is from a sonnet by the Bard... such amazing and beautiful placement and use of language.


Time grows very short before the show... now to work on some smaller and simpler items :)

UniqueLA on YouTube!!

Here's a link to a couple of videos on YouTube about artists connected with the show.

I watched these and am now in full freakin' out stage. I am SERIOUSLY not confident as well as understocked!! Any suggestions as to HEALTHY ways to not sleep for the next 7 days are welcomed!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH what was I thinking???????

Less than traditional....




...is the way the Easter Bunny rolls here!


Happy Day to all of you!




Our bunny left us Easter tins, as we have no baskets that are the proper size for these colorful gems :) This is perfectly aligned to the current trend here of using what we have and upcycling (with inspiration from Karen at Beelieve).




Wishing you a basket (container!!) FULL of treats, a day FULL of beauty, a heart FULL of gratitude, and actions FULL of grace.

I'm busy as a little bee in the Salon, creating inventory for the upcoming Unique LA Show and Marketplace (see sidebar for info and link :). This is a HUGE event, about 275 vendors for 2 days, just before Mother's Day. The Unique LA held in December had over 6000 visitors!!!! So I'm excited, anxious, staying open to the possibilities....finding balance.


Here are some photos of a few of the types of items I'll have available for sale.
