This weekend I made time for art...yaaay! Two different moods, two different styles emerge. Few words, and no explanations, just me. 

Hope you are all having a great week and a great summer! Thanks for always stopping by and leaving me your kind words!

Why is it when summer comes everything goes crazy and I barely have time to come up for air? Anyone else feel like that? I want to blog everyday and fatigue usually wins the battle, but I keep on trying! Today I would like to share some incredible birthday gifts sent to me by my dear friend Dorthe from Denmark. Dorthe has a beautiful blog called Den Lille Lade, and here you can see the gorgeous dolls Dorthe creates! You will be amazed at her talents and you will soon see there is not a kinder soul around than Dorthe, she is the sweetest gal ever, I love her to pieces! 

An amazing doll made by Dorthe!

and then there is all these luscious goodies she made me also!

This card Dorthe made is something special, she is so wonderful with collage, and all the yummy details of texture, color and how she uses vintage bits and pieces, ooooohhh, I am in love!

I love my gifts and am super spoiled! Thank you Dorthe, I feel blessed!

Thanks for visiting everyone and enjoy your weekend!

As is typical with me, I am now on a jewelry roll, and working diligently on some new pieces that should be done soon.  I always seem to wax and wane, just like the seasons, jewelry, then art, or both, and then it catches up with me, and no matter how hard I try, or want to, it is so hard to do both, and that part always makes me sad.  No matter which I am working on, the other is like an anguish always yearning to be free. Sounds dramatic, but that is what it feels like at times. 
Here are two recent pairs of earrings I  made and am glad to say they sold very quickly! Happy days! As a consolation gemstones always make me smile!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are having a great week!

 Today I want to share some jewelry I recently made. It's been a while, it's seems like forever. Pieces are strewn all over my worktable for weeks, but my fingers don't seem to move in that direction and I don't really understand why. That is a lifelong mystery, why and when I pick up the tools and stones and make something, I am just glad it continues to happen at a reasonable pace.

Of course I am always drawn to the same components, things I love, neutrals, calming colors, soft textures, fibers, clear tones, worn and vintage pieces that have character and show signs of another time, another person's touch perhaps.

I am fond of tactile qualities.

 Making jewelry like this is my journey.   I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I am grateful for your visits, and your comments.

Sometimes I feel like this!

And sometimes I feel like this!

And both of these ideas just have to come out of me and onto paper somehow, and I just do it.  They make me happy, but only for a while, and then I have to do it all over again. But I can always go back and look later, and then I like it in a different way, and usually learn something new too. 
Art is great that way. It teaches you if you let it.

Thanks for being so kind to visit and I always love your comments!
I hope you are all having an artful week!
