I want to keep learning new steps in the dance of life

I will always be learning new steps, always dancing. Here in my little corner of the street there is organic gardening, art, clay, glass, painting and fiber art, writing, music, dogs, and coffee with friends who drop by.

creating joy, for joy's sake

Something woke up in me these past few weeks. I'd stopped for a time making the pieces that gave me joy. I was happy making the art that I was still making but lately..something was beckoning me. Get back to joy, so i did. Joyful art, full of laughter and bursting with color, available daily.. Friend me on facebook to see a more up to date, up to dating..*did that make sense??* Heh.. enjoy

I've been busy making art

I want time to make beautiful things that make people happy when they see them. I want to put these lovely bursts of color into a winter garden and whisper to the birds that this will all soon be bright and beautiful and teaming with things to eat and sunshine to make you sing. I hope the birds know i want that for them.

the amazing things people do with plastic

I have no idea what this is made of, when I did a search for gluing plastic this wondrous work came up and I was enthralled. I want to do this to my car, i want to put stuff all over it and make people stare at it while i drive down the road. I love that this artist shared their vision in something so common as a car..a piece of art driving down a road would make me stop and think.

kumquat upside down cake

The kumquats are producing in abundance this year. If you've never seen or tasted one, and you love oranges, imagine popping an orange into your mouth and every sweet bit of it is edible, the skins are thin and sweet and the flesh inside is juicy and either tangy or sweet, depending upon the variety. Well they're starting to leave these things in your car if you leave your window rolled down...they're everywhere. Today I took my dear friend's kind gift of kumquats and made kumquat upside down cake. Found the recipe on the internet and it is beautiful to look at, if I may say so myself
