Wow! Other than the little lip sneer that’s happening, you can’t even tell that I had ten stitches just a week ago! Wear sunscreen, y’all!

Block puzzle

Getting back into the swing of things

Getting back into the swing of things after a few weeks of mad jewelry making and a weekend of art festivaling. I have endless respect for people who have the stamina to do 20 or 30 shows a year. One just about killed me! I’m thinking I’ll stick to web...

Now that the art festival is over

Now that the art festival is over, it’s back to my #365accordionproject and #the100dayproject. Gotta catch up!
