Guess what? I am the guest artist on Spooky time Jingles a wonderful site for all that is Halloween and Christmas !!! I just introduced a new series called "shelf life " Fun little guys to sit anywhere you would like a wee bit of whimsy!! Oh and the site also features some of my other favorite fellow "whimsy " artist too! Go take a peek at all the artist artwork as it will be sure to put a smile on your face . Also thanks for all the kind words about Boo Boo. Our pets are also our family, as I know you all feel too. Boo Boo was a rescue kitty and my heart knows we gave her a life of love . She was also the only pet Mark ever had and I know she is in his arms right now or playing Roly Poly with him with an Angel feather ( her earthly favorite was a peacock feather ) . Have fun my loves.

Last winter a spent about 6 weeks sorting my beads. I was sooo proud ( I hear it comes before a fall) . I had them FINALLY all organized and in their little bead boxes by color all in my perfect paper drawers. WELL then came the move and the photo shows what happened . I wonder waht it would cost to have someone sort them again asI can not yet face this mess !!! Anyone want a summer job ?? Those little bead boxes are for the birds not one clasp held !!!Does anyboy have any fool proof ideas for bead storage and also esay access?? I love storing them in the thin paper drawers but the little boxes , now that is another story.

Boy it has been several weeks since I blogged. I miss it. Just got back from Art and Soul in Virginian. I hardly ever get to visit the East Coast and the green of the landscape made my eyes burn!! I think everyone who lives in the desert feels that way when they visit a wooded state in the spring or summer. I had a wonderful time and meet some people that I hope will be long time friends . Hanging with creative souls really feeds mine. I lost my Nikon camera on the trip, so no pictures .Hope who ever found it likes it, as it was a great camera. I have my eyes on the Panasonic Lumix,its smaller then my Nikon. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!! Well, the move in is going slow. I have been busy creating and not unpacking , I have my studio set up so that is good and I guess all that matters for right now.. Letting the other rooms "ride " is weird for me as I am usually so uptight that all I can do is think about getting organized. HMMM maybe we do change a bit with age or maybe it is the new meds -TEE HEE!! What every it is , it's OK. I have been revisiting some past art techniques and also having fun with color on some pieces . What ever the mood of the day calls for , color or neutrals The images are of some of the things I have been creating . I am using Cal's camera . I also hope to get by everyone sights to see how everyones summers are starting!! I love to blog in bed late at night. it makes my dreams colorful !!! OH and My poppies are blooming too !!! What is blooming in your gardens ? Hugs Julie
