Hi! We've been sick, so I haven't done anything useful in days. Pretty much sleeping and reading and playing with playmobile all day. Which is fine, because I am still wore out from all that driving and shopping in Tucson. Here are some more treasures: top three drilled and carved stones are from Pat Jordan and the polymer pendant with the quote is from the lovely Heather Wynn. The drawing is of Azalea in her new cowgirl boots found in Nashville. I also got boots, mine in gator hide, which I felt drawn to (I grew up in Florida, always keeping an eye out for gators along shorelines- its my payback for all the missing kitties). Speaking of Florida, Greg and Bob Burkett will be in Jacksonville this weekend for the Bead Mercantile show. I think I'm going to sit this one out, I'm too sick to go on another roadtrip, which is a bummer because I could use some sea air. So, I think I'll work on new pieces and drawings. Its time to start a new sketchbook, I'm on my last page. Its always exciting to open a new book, wondering what experiances and ideas will be documented with ink, graphite and watercolor.
