It's more like Mayrch!

Well, it has been sunny but, burrr.  The wind is coming from the north and it feels that way.  I even built a fire to take off the chill.  Not usual but, not completely unusual for May here in the Sierra's at 2800 elevation.

Today I took the time to make a banner for my Farmer's Market Booth.  I used Vistaprint.  I will be getting it in a week so I'll let you know how it turns out.

Brrr chili

It needs to be 90 degrees or above before I go rafting with my husband, Keith.  He'll go when it is snowing.  I did however get a good amount of things done.  My art room is switched completely over from painting to jewelry making mode and I have a few new items in my Etsy store.

Etsy's Main Treasury & Treasury East

The main treasury on Etsy's website is a group of items I chose to feature together from different sellers.  The main treasury has limited viewing time and a limited amount of featured pages.  Since it only lasts a few days I posted the link to Etsy's Treasury East with the same items.

Naturalistic Approach - art imitates nature

Copper Moon - hand wire wrapped necklace

Does anyone know what kind of stone this is?  I found it on the beach in Northern California.
Coral and lava or such perhaps?

Earring Loop Template

I use this template to form my own earring loops.  Take two pieces of 24 gauge wire and form both over the template using a wig-gig.  Then pound away!  I have yet to try making a bookmark.  Go for it!
