Say Hello Again to Margit - My Danish Paper Art Muse.


Mid-summer may be a few months away, but it is not too soon to begin starting seedlings in anticipation of my flower covered Mid-summer well - a gift from my friend Margit.

A gift in the sense that in sharing the details of this Mid-summer tradition unique to her Danish island of Bornholm, she inspired me to create one in my own garden in honor of our friendship.

Christmas in July = Dala Horse Craft-along!


Christmas in July 2011! Just about the best ever because I shared the celebration with three amazing Scandinavian women who are so generous in sharing inspiration and friendship. Carina, Hanna, and Kathryn.

Erin Fickert-Rowland - Renaissance Artist!


Selecting a photograph to begin this post about my friend Erin, who shares her many talents on her blog "Elysian Studios", became an impossible task, so I chose instead a picture of one of the ways she has inspired me and made my life more enjoyable! My hand-woven journal!

Michele Pacey! Recycle/reuse genius!

She has restored my faith that recycled materials can be made in to objects that truly do have lasting value.

She has rekindled my interest in playing with the boxes and cans and cardboard and junk mail usually sent to the recycle bin or the dump.

Tangles Make Good Friends!


I love tangles!And I love gourds! AND I see the gracefully curvy surface of gourds as a perfect canvass for tangles!
