    Each spring I love to watch the different flowers take their turns blooming.  It’s always a fun and slightly magical to see what comes up from the year before and how well the new seeds will do.   I always find myself inspired to create when the first flowers emerge.  I…

    My Favorite Pieces

    My Favorite Pieces blog cover

    I was asked this past week what I thought was my best piece of art or my favorite that I’ve done.  At first I joked that it was like being asked to pick my favorite children.  I spend so much time with each piece that it really is hard to…

    It’s always interesting looking back over the year.  A lot of times we get lost in the day to day and in the things that we didn’t get done and forget just how much we’ve accomplished.  I find it really important to take time to review what happened – what worked…

    The 100 Day Project: the End blog cover

    It’s hard to believe that the 100 Day Project has come to a close.  It seems like just last week that I had tentatively started the challenge not fully believing that I would make it all the way to the end. The 100 Day Project, is an annual challenge where…
