Safe Journey Little Ring

Safe Journey Little Ring


Posted on Apr 29, 2011

My friend will soon be visiting family living abroad in Croatia.  She asked me to make a ring for her niece.  She picked out her niece's favorite colors.  I mocked up a couple of color designs, took a photo of them and emailed them to my friend.  She picked out this design.  It's thrilling to know that something I made will live halfway around the world.  That's a first for me.  ...

The Birth of My Nephew

The Birth of My Nephew


Posted on Apr 17, 2011

  Last Wednesday, my newest nephew came into the world.  This was the 4th time I was privileged to see the miracle of birth.  There just is nothing like seeing a human being born; I think everyone should experience this at least once.  I was honored that my sis-in-law asked that I be her doula.  I had helped with her other 2 births and I’m so glad that I got to be apart of this one too.     I haven’t gone...

Encaustic Donation Piece


Posted on Apr 1, 2011

  My niece asked me to donate something to her upcoming school auction.  I've never been able to say no to my niece.  I've bought my share of girl scout cookies and wrapping paper from her over the years.  In previous years, I've donated a Short Fuses pendant.  This year, I'm going to donate this encaustic piece.  The plants are from my yard and recycled scrabble and ceramic tiles...

Wondrous Art Wednesday – Amy Ruppel


Posted on Mar 30, 2011

  Amy Ruppel has been on my mind lately.  Ever since I found out she was half of the creative force behind the Portland Bingo Cards, I've been thinking about her.  She is a Portland Artist I've loved for years.  I've been wanting to dive back in to Wondrous Art Wednesdays; I can't believe I've taken a break this long!  When thinking of who to write about, Amy seemed like the obvious...
