Take Care of Her

I hope that you are enjoying this Spring weather that has arrived so quickly. My birthday is June 2nd and I relied on the weather so immensely to be Spring as a little girl. Hoping that I could enjoy and celebrate in sunshine and blooming. I would get nervous when the inevitable May snow would inch so close to my special day. Now, it is a time of the past. Yes, it is April, but Minnesota climate has changed dramatically in the last decade. I keep this in mind and try to make wise choices to my contribution to our beautiful, green state. Take care of your home and she will take care of you too

Gemini, Gemini

As a Gemini with a Gemini Moon I NEED change. This Beauty was a delight to make! There were so many different steps to this process that I found myself incredibly, creatively stimulated. And this is essential for me. I want to make things that feel good, that excite my artistic soul, things that whisper to my perfectionist mind, "Relax, I've got this." All of this. 

Crafting Green


Did you know you can make paper from decomposed leaves? I haven't done it yet, but it may be on my horizon this fall. It's immensely satisfying making full circle artwork. Only recycled materials. The craft store graveyard is not what you think. It is a secret garden. It is lush with all the materials I need. Indeed, I feel full of excitement knowing it isn't the WHAT will I create but the HOW that is the solution. We live on this big beautiful green planet and I've loved her from the beginning. My HOW is exquisite and green just like her.
