Friday in December

Today I am trying to get my letter of interest, resume and digital images ready to apply for the Two Harbors Public Library's Request for Proposals for ART. The Library is looking for three separate spaces for a piece or pieces of ART. Being an introvert is hard when dealing with Artists.

Saturday in November

Next weekend I will be at the Duluth Farmers' Market Festival of Seasons. I think I will leave Frida, my book shelf and my mirrors at home and just bring items which can have candles inside of them. Today, especially as it is so cold and dark, rainy outside, I see the need for candles and LIGHT.

Thursday in November

Here are some photos of my Eli Cat with three legs. He is doing okay now that we are letting him outside. I think he will always have a bunny sort of hop to how he walks and runs. Such a sweet cat! Breaks my heart that he is now three legged. You can see that this is not stopping his out door adventures. He continues to search the grass for mice while the young buck explores our yard.

The lighter spot on Eli's back, (see the photo with Eli curled up with Gracie on our couch), is where the bullet was removed.

Sunday in October

Our artists' tour is over! Thank goodness as I am just now recovering from this 6 day tour. I started this mirror while sitting at Shelley's. The mirror part was not big enough for this frame, so I made the double border with the first border made of my "special" smalti, and the second border was made up of diagonally cut mirrors. Now that this is home where I can see it better, I think I should move a tea pot or two. We'll see if I end up moving one or two of these tea pots! I am also not sure of what I will put for the background.

Saturday September 29

Yesterday at our artists' open house, we were busy the whole time with just enough time for Shelley and I to gulp down our lunches. Mostly we just sold small items. However, today is another day!

You may check out our work at

THese are some of my last minute additions to our art show.

Thursday before our Tour!

Today I will be super busy grouting my last SEVEN small projects and baking up cookies, breads and bars for the Lake Superior 20/20 Studio Art Tour.

You may check out the website here

These are the last few pieces for me to grout. I have grouted THREE times this week. MUCH much more than the amount that I usually grout in a week! (Grouting is just NOT my thing.)

Monday with only 4 days until our 20/20 Artists' Studio Tour begins!

I went over to Shelley's on Saturday to begin to set up for the 20/20 Artists' Studio Tour. She lives on Tomberg Road just outside of Two Harbors. Here is a photo of my Vases in the window with the light shining through them.
